Serenity Project - December

⛄⛄⛄ "Wishing all my online friends near and far a very peaceful Christmas and a prosperous New Year 2018." ⛄⛄⛄
Welcome to December's Serenity Project. December has been a month fraught with howling gales, torrential rain and thunder storms. Add to this snow plus sub-zero temperatures and this describes our weather to-date this month. Anything but serene but I don't think we can expect anything different at this time of the year here in the NE of Scotland. 
On the day I captured this image, there was a break in the weather, so I headed outdoors for a walk in the fresh air. It was good to be outside enjoying nature's snow-covered canvas and it was so quiet outside as opposed to the weather of the past week. 

Next in the Serenity Circle is the very talented Metro Phoenix Photographer,Iris from Iris Nelson Photography.  Click here to view what Iris has to share this month then sit back and enjoy! 

T'was the night before Christmas

"‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro’ the house, Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...."
You can read the full Christmas poem here: "T'was the night before Christmas"by Clement Clarke Moore and Henry Livingston Jr

Loved this little mouse when I first spotted it.  Loved its long lanky legs and knew I had 'just the place' for it at Christmas.  It sits on top of the log burner (not when it's lit of course 😯), but gave it free reign of the living room instead today 😄

Time to sew, time to sew, time to sew

The weather outside is frightful But my craft room's so delightful And since we've no place to go Time to sew, time to sew, time to sew.

Man it doesn't show signs of stoppin' And I bought some thread for my bobbin My fabric stash has started to grow Time to sew, time to sew, time to sew.

Shadow and light

Loved the way the morning sunlight fell upon this glass cut candle holder spreading a whole host of light sprinkles across the room whilst at the same time framing a shadow of the candle holder on the wall.

A little treat for Santa

Traditionalist at heart

Loved how this little pocket of light lit up my favourite festive candle holder early this morning.  I'm a red, green and gold fan at Christmas and this candle holder fits the colour scheme perfectly.  

What are your favourite colours for decorating this Christmas?

Rainy nights are best of all

“I loved to sleep with the window open. Rainy nights were the best of all:  I would open the window and put my head on the pillow and close my eyes  and feel the wind on my face and listen to the trees sway and creak." 
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

November favourites

October / November were really busy months for me this year. I enrolled on a couple of photography workshops plus another two shorter courses which I thoroughly enjoyed. Not only did these workshops keep my super busy, but I learnt a ton of information which I can't wait to carry into my future work.
