There are many lovely photo opportunities at Christmastime. So when I did my homework (by reading the instructive articles Donna provided) and started looking around for subjects for this month's challenge (Christmas Scenes), I wasn't sure where to start. People? Lights? Decor?
As it turned out, I ended up choosing some close-up shots of my nooks and crannies.
(All photos were taken with my Canon Rebel T3.)

A little sparkle and shine! Wine charms (marking whose glass is whose) on the stemware, set against the kitchen tree for some bokeh.
No glamour shot here! Just a basket filled with gift wrapping supplies, ready to be carried upstairs for a private wrapping session, or brought downstairs for an evening of wrap-and-a-movie.
An old tin cookie cutter and some cedar tucked into a bowl of pomanders.
This was a peek at the nooks and crannies, a zoomed-in view. In a day or two, I'll back up the focus a bit and take you on a little tour of the Farmhouse dressed for Christmas.
After this month, A Personal Photo Challenge is on hold for a time. Our dear hostess, teacher, and friend, Donna, is living difficult days as she devotes her all to caring for her Mr. Jim.
Donna, I continue to pray for you both as you walk this journey.
