is it Christmas yet?

i know it's snowing somewhere,

but here the weather is balmy

and my birthday presents

are making me think of

holiday cheer

The first globe reminds me if a Van Gogh sky.

rebecca said...

have i ever asked you what type of camera you use? this is my mission...i am camera-less at the moment.
(husband, yes the naughty one, left battery recharger in brazil. camera certainly not worth the price of a new one. so i am on the hunt.)

in all fairness....he cleaned right beside me!

Claudia said...

is it your birthday then today?
if yes - happy birthday to you (my daughter's birthday is tomorrow)
the weather is sunny and warm as well over here - almost like spring

Joyce said...

Happy Birthday my friend! We share another thing in common I have the a vase of the these ornaments AND I have the one in the 2nd photo!! I will think of you everytime I walk by it. Celebrate and enjoy!!! xo

Leslie said...

Actually my birthday was on the 11th, but I've been sick so I opened my presents belatedly... thanks for the sweet birthday wishes!

And Joyce, I can't believe you have the same ornament! That makes me smile : )

Elizabeth said...

I love this! It's just so darn unique. If it's soon your birthday -- well, have a wonderful one!

Oh, sweetie, too sick to open birthday presents is very sick indeed. I'm so sorry.
These photos are wonderful. I hope to be able to take something as fine some day.
My birthday is more than 2 weeks away but I've already opened two birthday presents. One is a new camera I haven't been able to figure out, and I wanted to learn about it before we go away in December. I got it because it has a viewfinder (old people, you know) and 26X zoom, but I'm pretty sure it can do macros, too.
In the meantime, I enjoy your pictures VERY much.
Luv, K

Jodi said...

Ooooh, they're pretty. I heard it's snowing in Minnesota :)

Flower Patch Farmgirl said...

So bea-you-tiful! Girl - Christmas is JUST around the corner!!

B. Meandering said...

You know how much I love the hanging 'objects' you take photos of! These ornaments are awesome.
I can't figure out which is my favorite, although I agree with Emily that the one looks like a Van Gogh sky. Where do you buy these?
Happy Belated Birthday, friend!:)

Rick said...

What a great mix of colours in those special presents. Hope things are going better for you.

Debbie D. said...

It's wonderful looking at your beautiful world through your lens!

Beth, we find these blown glass globes at a local craftsman's gallery. Here's the link if you want to take a look at their site:

GORGEOUS glass baubles, Leslie... a lovely little prelude to Christmas. ;o) We travel to the US on Friday to be with family for Thanksgiving and celebrate birthdays--very excited! I hope to post/visit at your place aagin before we leave.
