Focus On Life 2014!

Week Two: Silhouette
 
 
I think a lot of us will focus in on trees for this weeks prompt from Sally, and that's exactly what I did. Only my concentration was on the indoor kind this time of the year.
 
 
Yep, time to take the Christmas Tree back down.

 
It's funny how somethings can really get to you. When you first get it up, and by that I mean getting it straight, and remain standing (We won't mention the year I was on a step stool, straightening one last ornament, when it decided to join me flat on the floor.), you are so full of excitement with all the anticipation of the Holidays.
 
 
But once all the ornaments are back off and it's sitting there naked, it almost feels like you are saying bye to a dear friend.
 
 
Good thing there is always another December, right around the corner.
 
See you next week.
Now please take some time to visit the others in this weekly blog hop at: The Studio Sublime.

  1. Love your different effects - I really like the second one - it would make a great background for a Christmas card!

  2. I also like the second photo. I like the texture of the background with the silhouette of the branches against it.

  3. Love that last picture! That would make gorgeous fabric. I got dumped headfirst into the tree one year when the stool folded up with me on it! Now I know not to trust the step stool!

  6. I love the various edits - super! It is a bit sad taking down the decorations and tree sometimes, isn't it? But yes, December will be here again before we can blink! Remember,...Christmas decorations w/be in the store come this July and black Friday shopping now starts in August! ;-)
