Welcome friends...thanks for coming by. We're seeking beauty in all of creation... in our faith and our families; our art and our music; our crafts and kitchens, and even in our own backyard. We'll share a poem or a recipe, a picture or a memory; maybe a dream of how we wish our life could be. And though we acknowledge that the world can be harsh, we're keeping it pleasant in our little corner; endeavoring to keep the words from the Book of all Books: ...Whatsoever things are lovely; think on these things.

I so enjoy hearing from you...so leave me a comment; it'll make my day!

Merry and Bright

Things are getting merrier and brighter in the Rorvig household, thanks to two very special Christmas 'elves'...Kayla and Kayden. They came over and helped me decorate this weekend. They did a lovely job on the tree and set up my Nutcracker Village. It's so much more festive around here now!
Of course I had to take the opportunity to try out my new camera lens...a 50mm prime lens, affectionately called the 'Nifty Fifty' by Canon users. All of the review said it's great for portraits and that stuff called bokah that we love so much! So the girls decorated and I played with my camera.
We ate burgers, munched on donuts and hot chocolate, and caught up on what's going on in their world.
What really nice girls they are.
What a really nice day!

I made Posie-cat and Baron pose in front of the Christmas tree so I could see just how nice the bokah effect was with this lens. I like it!

Yep. Those two girls are real keepers.
Hope your Christmas preparations are all merry and bright!

The girls are natural beauties, those expressive eye! I cannot tell my husband about your new lens, or he will want one. Magnificent shots. That little elf is s cutie, and it goes without saying your fur babies are, too.

What beautiful, fresh faces your girls have! How blessed you-and they-are to be close enough to share decorating. Happy Sunday.

Gorgeous. You are waaaay ahead of me in the preparation front. I think I need some elves too.

Your pictures are beautiful. The decorations are lovely, but the girls are the loveliest of all.

I love my nifty fifty! It makes my camera look small and easy to take places.
