  1. Oh dearest Irina, life IS full of beauty, and it is to be found in your wonderful posts. These are stunning pictures!
    I hope you are well and I wish you a very happy Sunday.
    Hugs, Abby and Spotty xx

  2. Good morning my friend,

    I could not agree more with your post. We are often so busy that we miss the beauty of a snowflake, the curl of a fiddle head fern and the smile on the face of a friend.

    I hope you are having a great week, don't get stressed by it all...I am trying not too myself. But it is my nature to do it all and to be a worrier. Oh well.

    Take care and enjoy the season, the spirit, the lights, family friends, take it all in. It really is the little things in life!

    Have a wonderful weekend friend, xoxo elizabeth

  3. Such beautiful everywhere this time of year. I am just sitting here looking out my window at our west coast forest and just can't believe how beautiful it is...misty and amazingly green...the light is stunning right to find my camera....
    may your week be merry and bright dear one. xoxoxoxo

  4. AND YOU, notice in full measure. I have not personally known ANY ONE like you dearest, who listens and who looks as keenly as you. It shows in all that you select, and all that you do. HOW DID I MISS THIS YESTERDAY???? MOI

  5. I am doing that more with each passing moment. I just get distracted by those closest to me not doing the same. :) I try to convince them to look beyond and take note of the details but I also forget that in doing this I risk missing out on the details myself.
    The images are simply beautiful as usual. I think I'll end my blogging on this note tonight and maybe dream a dream of beautiful details. ;)
    Much love to you, Irina.

    I love the above images, they show your good taste.

  7. Oh YES.... you have the eye of an artist, to notice the beauty that surrounds you.

    Have a blessed week!!!

  13. My darling and most gracious friend,

    In the middle of your celebrations, both of them, YOU COME TO SEE ME...thank you so much. It means a lot to me that you SEE my words, and the heart. That first picture with the tree is me!!!! I love that photo because it is old and grainy, like my slight recollection of that moment. The tree was like a Charlie Brown tree, while other members of my family who had money, had those perfect trees. But now, I see the beauty of it all, the meager resources, but the GREAT LOVE. Life is that way, isn't it? Until we look backwards it is then that we see....

    LOVE YOU. Have a marvelous celebration today and tomorrow, and I look forward to seeing YOU!!!!!! Anita
