Last to first:

Monnie..I was just thinking about the color red. It represents so many things to we humans.

Firstly I would say Love & passion, then maybe anger, the even very blood that keeps us alive. It can mean caution, wonderful foods that we eat, beautiful birds and flowers that surround us, MY SPAGHETTI SAUCE that is likely burning right now OH AND SANTA's CLOTHES and RUDOLPH'S NOSE!

I love red, too. Thanks for your wonderful comments!

*

Nancyj, I am so glad you like it! It does kinda look TWINKLY doesn't it?!?! NEATO! Your comments are always so special!

*

Hi John! WOW! Thanks! I was hoping to achieve the spirit of Christmas so hearing it, in your rendition, really feels great!!! :D

*

Kathy...YOU are VERY welcome! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

*

OH SSSKiki, I ruined my Chances to be hired by Disney in the 70's! I should have jumped on the opportunity that I had. Too late now. No more connections there!!! Long story! SO GLAD YOU LIKE THIS!!! :D

*

Thank you Donna! I bet you will make something lovely and Christmas-y soon too...Your evening shots are amazing!

HEY-MAYBE YOU HAVE ALREADY! I WILL GO SEE!

* * *

Thanks all!!! Time to scrape the bottom of the spaghetti sauce pan!

Thank you Laura this is a beautiful surprise. I just finished the first draft of our plans for this summer and then I came over to look around and here you are a head of me by far. Wish you a Merry Christmas as well. I am sure you are having snow by now that really helps with the feelings of the season I am sure.

Just an awesome shot and great DD work as well. A POTD is a wonderful thing to get anytime, but especially on Christmas.
