Happy Holidays





Sky Watch Friday to catch views of the sky from all over the world.



Happy Holidays to my friends from all over, am off to the beach for a couple of weeks for the down under version of a white Christmas.

"You may tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain to view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. "


Francip P Church of Yes Virginia There is a Santa Claus


There is no Napping on Susan's Porch with lots of holiday themed posts to inspire us to celebrate every day moments.

Sharing a peek at one of this year's specially handmade gifts using lots of glimmer mist and tattered angels chipboard.

Nice quiet and sunny!

Eaglesbrother said...

Those clouds in the distance look like they are sitting right down on the distant water..like a wave.

It's almost as if the clouds are mimicking the waves! The water is so pretty and the sand makes me want to take my shoes off and bury my feet into it. Have a glorious christmas at the beach!

If the rollers come in you will after all have a white (water)Christmas. Have a great time and remember to slip, slap and slop or perhaps not so much of the slopping unless it is an organically based sunscreen.
A very Happy Christmas to you and I look forward to your return.
Regards, Arija

I like your banner & your beach with sky is lovely & warm looking too!

Dirkjogt said...

A lot of difference with our country, now covered with (at least 15 cm) snow. But... we can make snowmen!

Helena said...

That looks like the kind of white Christmas I'd enjoy for a change. :)
