All Twinkly


"It's like a fairyland!" is what I say every single Christmas when the city of Mountain Brook turns up the wattage in the village.  The trees are all strung and now they've outlined all the shops with lights as well.  The header photo is the gorgeous tree in front of Bromberg's Jewelers.

You are right Virginia. It really looks like fairyland.
You make it look so.
It is so beautiful.

Christmas lighting is certainly the business to be in these days.

Mighty pretty! Belgrade has just recently put up its lights!

I just love Christmas lights! I have to say I do miss that about X-mas in the States. They seem far more into putting up lights there.

Somehow it looks to me like a painting that might be entitled "Milky Way With Triple Nebulae"....

I mean that in the best possible way, of course. Perhaps I just need a new eyeglass prescription.

En voyant la photo, je croyais que c'était un feu d'artifice! Les arbres sont bien iluuminés!

Claudine,
un feau d'artifice? A new phrase pour moi. Oui, est vrai.

Love lights like this - it works when lights trace the shape of a tree.
