MOOD BOARD

Christmas week is here. Usually this time every year when I was working, this would be when everything is starting to wind down, the store would actually start getting quieter, and I would just relax till time to travel home. Needless to say , with no work, it's been much more calm anyhow...but for some reason, a wash of more calm and peace came over me all of a sudden yesterday. I feel more peaceful and calm then I have in some time. If my mind and mood could be seen in pictures...this would be what you'd see. I leave you with these for today.


5 points if anyone can guess who this is?

Beautiful, Mercer Fonthill Castle in Doylestown
To go with this mood board....one of my favorite women of all time singing one of my favorite Christmas songs....

  1. After that you have got me in a calm mood. Loved all the calming white. I too add.its been nice this season not working. I actually have gotten out of it...slow down and enjoy more.

    I wasn't familiar with this song....but Vanessa sang it beautifully...I dare say it even got to me. She is so gorgeous.

  2. You're all of a sudden Feeling all calm and cool and peaceful. I dare say, I suspect someone must've had a cock-a-tail and a shared way with the lumberjack neighbor. Who wouldn't be all warm, fuzzy, and peaceful after that?
    The photos are gorgeous. They really do bring a sense of peace. Have a happy day, Maddie.

  3. I must be getting old...this post either got to me...or I have something in my eye. The song couldn't have accompanied the lovely pictures any better. You can set a mood for sure.

  4. I can't in all honesty claim the five bonus points. I clicked on the pic to make it bigger and her name came up. I love the house in the first pic.

  9. Photo #4 looks like the Slovenian Torta Melanija (see here https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-55004553 ) which the tight faced piece of work in the WH wouldn't eat in a year of Sundays.

    1. I thought the same about the houses, Jon! And then I wondered if I could make a gingerbread house and decorate it in icing to look like one. Fortunately, laziness and memories of Great British Bake Off disasters stopped me in my tracks.

      A beautiful set of pictures, Maddie. Very calming indeed. Especially the lit tree on the riverbank.

    2. Mr Device...Im surprised you not flying around in the Star Trek Enterprise somewhere?

    3. Used to?!?!? I would love a MGB roadster!!!!

  17. A lovely collection and a lovely song. Thanks, hon. My guess is Julie Christie... but that's not right. The car is the wrong vintage and the cheek bones - although, hard to tell because she's looking up. Kizzes.

  18. So, how come we don't get any points for knowing who the guy in the sand is????

  19. That car better move ver-r-r-r-y slowly. Otherwise, I don't see those gifts arriving at their destination.

  23. Love this mood board. My favorite is the trees with the white lights and blurry looking. This song is probably my favorite Christmas song....and Vanessa sang it beautifully.

  24. I don't deserve the 5 points. I read the name on the file. Beautiful music. A very creative post to express how you're feeling.

  25. I love the way the antlers on the first deer form a heart. And you gotta be careful body surfing in the snow, gotta protect the family jewels.
