jingle bells!



A Boxing Day sleigh ride! A surprise from my father. How he managed to get eight sleepy people out the door that morning (on time), I have no idea. But, it truly was the best gift ~ the kind that makes you cry when you think about it (a few more images here...and here!).

And another extraordinary gift (thank you, thank you my friend, I am still speechless).

Welcome 2010...!

Janet! It was truly a pleasure.
I love these sleigh ride photos...especially the jingle bells. What could be more festive?

Well, Off on a sleigh ride, over the river to flickr, through the woods to the Barboursville ruins & the white and drifting snow to Stitchette & back to lovely JCB's for new adventures in 2010. Cherish all the special gifts from your father, the sleigh ride and the hand up.What a truly picture book world youve shared. GT

Lovely photographs, JCB, and on a morning when even the South is hovering around 17 degrees, oddly warming. I especially love the photo of gray buildings in the white and gray landscape with just a flash of red.

I can't top Gaye's poetic comment! But oh so dreamy Janet.

So enchanting and love-filled. Just a peak into your Maine world is such a delight. Always nice to see talent and artistry expressed through several generations. The texture—and affection—in the photographs is palpable.
