Happy Holidays!

Hamilton Jewelers window and our town square. Crazily enough, I'm traveling again, thanks to last-minute tickets. I may not have internet for a week, but wishing you a Happy Holiday! Be safe, see you soon.

Below, to make up for my post-and-run week, a little farewell look at 2012...
New spring leaves...


After a summer storm...

Autumn is beautiful...

Dreaming of a white Christmas.

I adore the jeweler's window! The Christmas tree ornaments look like black pearls.

I love the second shot Lulu, an arch is a favourite at any time, but dressed up for Christmas is extra special..safe travels and have a wonderful time.

Enjoy your trip, Lulu. Thanks for the Christmas peek at your town, and your review of the four beautiful seasons you captured. See you in the new year!

Catherine Goron said...

Really nice photos and post Lulu,... a nice way to wrap up the year. Like you mentioned in your last post, it's difficult not to think about last wk's tragically sad event. I totally agree...

But do try and enjoy every moment of your holiday season... travel safe, stay warm... Joyeux Noel & Bonne Année! :)

My my! You DO take your Xmas decorating seriously, don't you?!?! Love the retrospective - and wonder what it would be like to live with 4 such distinct seasons?!?!
