It's that time of year when we all celebrate the Holidays.

I can't wait to go to Vermont to see my Mom and be around the mountains, the snow and Vermont charm.

Kim Klassen is celebrating something new today.  It's the Celebrate eDition for Texture Tuesday.

I have used her new texture called kk lookup, on all of my photos today.  I also used some lovely brushes of Kim's, some Whimsical, some Affirmation ones.

When I think of my favorite music about celebration, I think of Kenny Loggins singing Celebrate me home.



Please join Kim at her Cafe blog for Texture Tuesday and see all the lovely photographs of Celebrate.

To celebrate the holiday season I changed things a bit, my hot air balloons will be hovering over Vermont for the season.

Magnificent. You have captured a feeling that I felt and actually still do, when I lived in New England.....I SAW A REINDEER THE OTHER DAY as I was driving to meet a friend! It was a petting zoo animal at the little village down the road.....so wonderful is HIS creation!!! Anita

Has the weather in Vermont been as mild as elsewhere in New England? It's so rare and we are so thankful with John still busy on the house.

Your images are beyond lovely. What you do with the added extra bits is a delight.

Oooops, forgot to clarify... The "Once Upon A Time" is was talking about in my post today/Tues., is a tv program. On Sun. at 8PM in the NE.

If you bounce back to my post, there is a click-able link there... Taking you to info, about it. Some of us are finding it quite delightful.
