North Of Woods Christmas Lights, 2012

IMG_2198Many of our neighbors in the North of Woods section of New Albany have put up their holiday lights, and the neighborhood looks great.  Kish loves Christmas lights, and I agree with her — seeing the pretty displays in the morning and returning from work in the evening makes the world seem a bit more bright and cheerful.  I’ll be posting pictures of some of our neighbors’ colorful creations between now and Christmas.

Elemental And Ornamental

My sister Cathy has lots of energy and, lately, has become a huge fan of Pinterest.  She found an idea there to hang Christmas ornaments from ribbons as a holiday decoration and tried it out on Mom’s window.  The result looks pretty good — but mostly because displaying the ornaments closer to  eye level gives you a chance to take a closer look than when the ornaments are, say, two feet off the ground.  I particularly liked the very pleasant expression of holiday cheer on this coffee pot snowman
