Wordless Wednesday - All I want for Christmas...

Would a smallish Maine Coon do? Our late feline Sir Humphrey of Upland was indeed a gift from heaven! See WW and WW

Whimsical Windows - Welcome for the Holidays


Toby most graciously hosts the architectural meme Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors, and in this season of holidays, I showcase such a holiday venue, a relative's home in Connecticut.

This nice house belongs to a relative where had last year's  family Christmas Eve Yankee Swap, a place where my siblings and their generational offspring meet every year.

It is a nice house, understated in decoration. The entrance is what we notice, but what is it? Check the ramps leading up to the front door - my wheelchair is equally welcome here, a 5-ft ramp to the porch, a 3-ft ramp over the threshold. A grand entrance for me is the welcome from a great extended family!

Shadow Shot Sunday - Presents and presence

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 and holidays go together well. And for the upcoming Christmas, I am reprising these re-edited views of 1994 on Christmas Day, with a shadow or two, of our (then little) children. With presents opened and unopened, the magic of the day for both is apparent :)

Wordless Wednesday - Merry...

Christmas is so often for the children - we are happy at their joy at receiving,  and even happier by our giving. This is from Christmas morning 1993, kids then aged 3 and 5. Joyful we all were, and in this season - still are...see WW and WW

Shadow Shot Sunday - Skating and Celebrating

Subtle shadows are lurking all about these classic Villers views, so they become subjects for Shadow Shot Sunday 2. My grandparents are by the New York City landmark Rink at Rockefeller Center, the year I believe to be 1963. They were at our home for Christmas and flew home from New York City to spend the New Year's before the flight home from New York, and he took lots of pictures...and in the same set of photos is a shadowy above the BOND clock is at 12:00  - could that be Happy New Year 1964? One wonders...
