Honestly, I don't believe there is anything with more sparkle or shine than a glass Christmas ornament, hung on the tree, among all of the lights. These are just like rubies set in the tree.
"Underneath" can mean only one thing this time of year. What's underneath the tree and how many have your name on them? Are you excited to see the expressions on the faces of others as they open your gifts? Does everyone have a little bit of their childhood wonder still in them?
Even though we have downsized our celebration this year, there are still plenty of Christmas decorations around the house. This is part of the centerpiece on the dining room table. And yes, my wife makes all of them. She is extremely talented in this department.
Sometimes, when looking for "Fresh" subjects to photograph, you just have to combine a few objects and create your own little vignette.

So far, so good.
I thought that these two little fellows were pretty colorful. They do make me smile whenever I see them.
