If These Walls Could Talk
I love the walls and surrounding Railroad Park. An ingenuous way to reuse these old hand cast bricks that were uncovered from this property to create Birmingham's urban park.

Angels We Have Heard on High
The fifth grade Christmas Pageant at Independent Presbyterian Church is so sweet and brings back many childhood memories. Thankfully, it has remained unchanged over the years, except the bathrobes worn my the shepherds have been upgraded. My favorite part is when the angel lowers the STAR down on a rope. Nothing high tech about this pageant!
Warmest wishes to all of my dear readers who celebrate Christmas this day. May this be a special time with family and friends.

Here We Come A-Caroling
A caroling party in my neighborhood is an evening I look forward to each Christmas for many reasons. It's a glorious mix of talented pianists, joyful voices singing Christmas carols, delicious food and drink, and the gathering of old and new neighbors of all ages. Thank you Sam and Carolyn for opening your home to us!

Deck The Pugs
From time to time I photograph the children of my friends. Often it's even more special "children". Meet my adorable neighbors Harry and Lulu. They visit often, mainly because I have a jar full of dog treats and Meeps' food, if I'm not on my toes! That said, Meeps likes them a lot, ( mainly Harry). We did a little photo shoot last week. Feel the pug love!

Holiday House Weekend
Thursday, December 12, 2013
Yesterday I had the good luck to photograph our STAIR students participating in the Advent Workshop at Independent Presbyterian Church. Normally these hard working second graders are reading and working with their STAIR tutors, but this week, after snack, they were treated to Advent Workshop where they made Christmas necklaces and a sweet manger scene. STAIR tutors and IPC youth lent helping hands all along the way. It was a great day!

I think that Mountain Brook Village needs to win some magical Christmas lights award. I drive through there often and it's still hard not to stop in the middle of the street and jump out for more photos!

Antiquities in Mt. Brook Village, has this enormous basket of small mercury glass votives. Who could resist the purchase or the photograph? Actually I indulged in both!

This Caught My Eye!
Actually it's not Paris of course, but probably a loading area when Parisian's department store in downtown Birmingham was a very popular place to shop. I loved shopping there in high school and college and the fact that the name is still on the doorway of this Birmingham alley, brings back good memories.

City Daily Photo Theme Day - Looking Out
A few weeks ago I visited Regions Bank on 20th Street downtown Birmingham. As I walked back to my car in the parking deck, this reflection from the inside looking out, caught my eye. Today I join my fellow City Daily Photobloggers around the world celebrating this December Theme Day right HERE! http://cdpbthemeday.blogspot.com.au/

Charlotte Woodson Antiques has this fabulous life size ( or I assume it's life size) sheep for sale. It seems to be keeping watch over Colin's Creatures. How sweet is that!

Farewell to the PIg
The Piggly Wiggly Grocery Store in Crestine Village has long been THE place to shop but also meet and greet friends and neighbors. It was a great, small store where you got to know the checkers and call them by name. They closed their doors November 1st and this was a parade float in the Mountain Brook Mystics Halloween Parade. I"m sad too. I loved shopping at the Pig!

The Mt. Brook Mystics Halloween Parade that winds through Crestline Village is a family affair. Neighbors gather and make their floats and there's the Mountain Brook cheerleaders and dancers. It's just a fun community event. I caught this reflection on the MBFD truck!
