Photo journaling-Happy New Year!

Some photos from the last week or so, in no particular order:
Happy New Year! is what I thought it looked like this tiny, eyeless snowman was saying.

Yeah-one day I made a little snowman with snow from the deck.  I couldn't find anything to use for his eyes off-hand, so I tried using a black sharpie-it didn't work.  Then, I lost interest.  But not before I took some pics.

Side view-why yes, yes that is a real carrot stick.  (A few hours later he was a pile of slush, but he was kind of cute while he lasted.)

Winter wonderland-this was on New Year's Eve.  Getting dumped on again today.  It is surely beautiful!

Real birds-a junco and a tufted titmouse in my dogwood.

Fake birds-but very pretty nonetheless.  These are gifts from my wonderful friend-Dawnie.  She has a blog now-I'm so excited!  

 Heard honking, looked up, snapped pic.  (This was from Christmas day when I took pics of Princess.)

Cutest little flower pot ever-a gift from Larry's cousin.

Christmas day sky.

My birthday flowers were sent back to the earth.

Christmas eve snowstorm and colored water from my birthday flowers.

I painted my nails for the first time in months on New Year's Eve.  They looked sort of nice, so I took a pic holding the bottle of nail polish like I've seen some others do on Instagram.  I felt kind of dumb doing it, and yet I did it anyhow.  Go figure.

Finally-here's my buddy Roc enjoying a day at the beach-er, I mean lying in the snow.  I love that boy!
I wish you all the very best in 2014!

Wow! Your photo skills are just amazing! Beautiful pics, Holly.
And I too do things like returning my cut flowers to the earth - seems right somehow, doesn't it?
That little pic of the snowman - first one - would be the cutest card or kiddie book illustration. Love it. And the birds! Well, all of them.
Best to you this new year!
Mary

A sharpie? Haha!! Too funny! I love your use what you have mentality! Your pictures, as always, are gorgeous! I love the contrast between the flowers and the snow. Beautiful. Have a great weekend.
