Beautiful Boxing Day Findings ..

Hello my dear friends,

normally after Christmas I like to venture out in search of new decorations for the next year's festive season but this year I was very happy to stay home really and avoid the very busy, hot and overflowing stores apart from once.

 I was taking a look at our local Sears department store which is closing down soon when I came across their Christmas decorations that were not only 70% off but then another 20% was taken off everything after that! I was very lucky to find 8 beautiful glass ornaments in the shape of pine cones in the most beautiful pale green color.

And how to better share their beauty but by taking photos in the cold and snow!

Aren't they so beautiful? 
Not only was I lucky to find those amazing ornaments but whilst grocery shopping I found the  prettiest ornament hangers I have ever seen.
I couldn't resist and bought all the hangers that were in the store and you will see why in the photos below!

Didn't I say they the prettiest hangers ever?!
And of course what do you ... I mean ... I do when you have ornaments and hangers you would like to share? You take more photos ... again outside in the snow!

Just stunning!


And this is my most favourite photo I took on that day. It is of the same rose that I have taken photos of several times in the past ...  just can't seem to not take pictures of it.

And last but not least ...

... have any of you lovelies seen the effects Google plus dose to your photos?! For the second time now I received an e-mail with edited photos with very neat effects like ...

... falling snow ...

... or glistening and twinkling.

I wonder if it would be lovely if my music boxes would twinkle like this?!

The falling snow just fits this picture of my back yard so well, don't you think?!
 And last but not least .
 I will be sharing my last Christmas music box tomorrow with all you lovely bloggers ... so if you have a little spare time do try to stop by here at Todolwen and visit me again. I always love it when you do so.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day.
Karen B.
