Happy Weekend…the last weekend before Christmas!
I’ve received a few comments here and on Facebook asking if I’d be sharing my friend, Marie’s home decorated for Christmas again this year. We’ve both been so busy we hadn’t had time to get together but we finally had a chance to go play yesterday. We spent the day touring a beautiful historic home in a nearby town, having lunch and doing a little shopping. I snapped some pics inside the home and I’ll be sharing those sometime soon.
When we returned back to Marie’s home, it was already dark but I was able to capture a few photos of the outside before it was too dark to take pics. Do you remember when we last saw Marie’s home decorated for Halloween? The trees were adorned with beautiful lit orbs in colors of orange and purple.
This time the lit orbs were glowing in red and white for Christmas!
By the time we got back and I started taking these pics, we were already deep into the blue hour. If you’re not familiar with the blue hour, you can read more about it here: The Secret of the Blue Hour
You’ll find additional posts about this special time of day for photography here: Blue Hour Photography
Photos don’t do it justice…it truly is magical seeing the lights overhead in the trees. Aren’t trees gorgeous in the winter, I love seeing their beautiful branches against a winter or blue hour sky.
Marie’s home was all aglow for the Christmas season.
As you approach Marie’s home, there are so many beautiful vignettes, including a nativity.
Lots of pretty trees glowing from inside…
The walkway was lined with snowmen…
Of course, Santa was there with his reindeer.
I remember the ornaments from last year. I think Santa’s elves may be a new addition. If I get this excited over all the beautiful decorations, can you just imagine being a child and visiting Marie’s home? I know her grandchildren must love visiting and seeing everything!
The front porch was lit beautifully, too.
Hope you enjoyed coming along for the tour. I think I’m going to have to make this an annual tradition!
