Sunshine & Joy

"The sun does not shine for a few trees and flowers, but for the whole wide world's joy. “ Henry Ward Beecher

A bit like Sky Watch Friday, nothing but lots of lovely photos of the sky as seen from different corners of the world. I was lucky this week and got to enjoy a little sunshine.

Lots of folks are counting down to holidays, Christmas, Hanukkah and Winter Solstice, what ever you might be celebrating, hope it is a good one.

Louise from the Cape is hosting a bloggers Christmas Party and Mary Ann is hosting a flicker Holiday Party to help get you in the spirit of things.

Some of this year’s Christmas cards ready to take flight.

Thank you for your recent visit to my little corner of Blogdom. It's always a treat to meet a friendly blogger. I love the work that you are doing with your cards. It's truly lovely and very different from most that I've seen.

I also note that you are originally from St. John, Canada. Is that New Brunswick? (Pardon my ignorance.) I was just going to say that it is a small world as my grandfather was born in St. John many, many years ago...116 to be exact. :D
