The winter of cold seems gone inside your warm home full of shadows. Sun behind glass seems to warm us, the sun still providing daily warmth to us all. Beautifully captured as always. Happy New Year!

Hi Sylvia - Happy New Year ..... may it bring everything that you wish for! The centre photo is my favourite from toda's collection. Love Anne

Miss Becky said...

I hope the sun comes out for you very soon. It's been foggy and rainy here in the Midwest, which is very unusual for this time of year. Your photo montage is beautiful. I too love the sea shell, and also the sun shining on the plant leaves. Happy New Sylvia, and happy SSS!

Al said...

Beautiful montage - my favorite is the pumpkins and their glow. We've got sun, but it's been very, very cold for a couple of days. Have a wonderful 2011, Sylvia.

Cindy said...

Very beautiful shots, Sylvia. I love the seashell.

Meri said...

Love the shadow cast by the conch shell -- and the light through the green glass. And what inspired you to live for a year in San Miguel?

Kay L. Davies said...

Wonderful shadow montage, Sylvia. I love the way the light shines through the conch shell.

Yes! «Louis» likes that "may your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions!

He promptly broke his New Year resolution to lose some weight by eating not one but TWO slices of the Chocolate Pecan torte he made with a bavarian crème filling between the layers and frosted with chocolate whipped cream...

Sunshine! That's a rarity in your neck of the woods, isn't it?
Nice montage. Love the conch shell.

Cool header designed by your friend.

Ann said...

Today, I was talking to 3 very senior ladies in their 80s, after our church service. The sermon was resolutions.

We all agree that we DON'T make resolutions.

Do you?

Sylvia K said...

No, Ann, I don't make resolutions! At this stage of my life, I just enjoy taking one day at a time and I don't worry about tomorrow. Hope your new year is off to a great start! Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!

Sylvia

You still have pumpkins??? Love the light through the sea shell and all the others too as well as your New Year header.
