22 December


this is a life size Santa...

He's really big

on the door


makes you feel merry

(silver bells)

when i was a young girl i lived for a time in Boston with my father

we lived on Newbury Street and also on Commenwealth Avenue

at christmas time carolers would stand outside our brownhouse and sing

silver bells

-it's christmas time in the city-


  1. Newbury Street….so close.

    Now that I think of it, I've never known anyone to carol sing door-to-door in Australia.

  2. I inherited my mom's Santa collection - including a full sized one. He is a handful to store after the holidays. I would imagine how festive Boston could be right in the city (daughter goes to school right outside of Boston - husband's aunt used to live on Commonwealth Ave.) I enjoyed your little details of the holiday. Merry Christmas!

  3. Love that first shot, beautiful colours and bokeh. That tree is so pretty too. Merry Christmas to you and yours x

  4. Nice photos. I love your light and your bells with the green make such a pretty photo.

  5. I really like the snow covered Santa and his reindeer. It really does capture the lighter side of Christmas.

  6. I love your big Santa and the Christmas tree. I also remember caroling when I was a kid in Albuquerque in the neighborhood.

    I love your blessing also, thank you for that.

  7. nice...the stocking pic is cool...wonderful holiday images....

  8. You lived on Newbury Street in Boston?!?!?! That had to be amazing during the holidays! What a unique silver bell that is on the tree. Quite lovely. Thanks for joining in at Song-ography...I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season.

  9. "Deep Peace" - thank you for reminding me . . . You certainly know how to give a Christmas Spirit to all of us . . . Thank You!!
    Merry & Bright!

  10. What a beautiful bell ornament. I love that you actually got carolers singing that song, what a great memory. - Cool life size Santa and your on the door shot is wonderful.

  11. love the quote & picture! your silver bell ornament looks so delicate... oh! I LOVE Boston... it would be amazing to live in a famous, historical place.

  12. Gorgeous have a wonderful holiday season!

  13. They all make me feel merry and happy too. That Santa is so cool, as are the backgrounds too. What lovely places, and the shades of your photos are smooth, in your last three photos!

  14. What a wonderful place to have lived as a child! and what memories you must have had from that time! lovely post, and hope that your holiday is delightful and filled with love and new memories being made!

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
