FORGOT TO SAY VANESSA THE IMAGES ARE
STUNNING,I THOUGHT HOW LOVELY IT MUST BE TO WALK TOWARDS THE LIGHTED WINDOWS AND KNOW YOU WERE "HOME"...
BUT AFTER A COUPLE OF SHERRIES ... SPOOKY MOON...
LIGHTED WINDOWS EMPTY HOUSE ...{:>(((!

Beautiful photographs Vanessa. I love the snow in the trees, and the moonlit walk towards the house. Congratulations with the paintings. xx love Julia

ooh, I've just watched monster house, and now your scary houses.....
there's a house near here that's scarier though - it's sooooo covered in Christmas lights you can't see the brick work..... If I can get over the embarrasment I'll stop and take a photo, which will either immediately turn on all festive feelings, or banish them forever - humbug!

Hello. What fantastic pictures. And yes I agree with your comment on Jane Brocket's blog - it's just not feeling quite right yet. Maybe there wasn't enough summer to help us to embrace the contrast. Bright cold days help though. And the smell of Glogg!

Cynthia

I think a glass of sherry and watching others work sounds like a great plan!

Anne

Beautiful pictures - I am not ready for Christmas either - mince pies sound so good. I haven't had mince pie for ages - they are not real popular in the US.
