Here is some of Mum's baking over the festive season. Believe me, they are as tasty as the look!

Now this is what I call a house! Found completely by chance in the better part of Cricklewood. It shows houses really don't have to be little boxes like most here are.

I went to my best friend's house on Christmas Eve in West Texas and saw this guy along the way. There were a few other longhorns in the field, but he was the closest to the road.

I'll bet you wouldn't get much change from a million pounds for that house Satguru - perhaps a lot more?
We have two Christmas trees, one in the lounge, the other in the conservatory. This is the white one in the lounge.

The fairly ordinary semis in the road it's off are well over a million so this would probably make a couple easily. But one of a kind so far better than spending it on anywhere ordinary for the same price, which is very easy to do nowadays.
I've got a bungalow by the way, if I want to move I'll remember you!

Here's the corner cabinet in my main room with a few Christmassy bits added to the usual photos and such.

Two ducks on Hampstead Heath. Thanks for the info picqero, I thought the female should have been light brown but assumed this was a type I hadn't seen. I still haven't seen a black duck with a green head before this one.

Not "Mr & Mrs" Satguru, as they're both males - or more correctly 'drakes'. You can tell this by them having green heads; female mallards have all over brown plumage. On second thoughts though, in these days of 'political correctness', maybe 'Mr and Mrs' is acceptable
These are my grand-daughters wearing the Venetian style party masks we gave them for Christmas. The red mask has a crown of dark red feathers, by the way, so that's not her hair colour

A little friend's stuffed animal he received for Christmas. I was experimenting with flash vs no flash on a mirrored table.

Great longhorns, ClaraSue! And I like the tortoise, OnimisiB. Welcome to the photo-a-day thread.

Happy Birthday, dg_dave!

Here are some sugar cookies that we decorated on Christmas Eve.

My sister and I visited a couple of local scrapbooking stores today, to take advantage of the year-end sales. This is part of one room of one of them.

This mule deer was not far down the road from where I saw the longhorn steer on Christmas Eve.

love your sleeping in photo ren, all cuddled up with puss.

I forgot to take my camera with me to my sisters on Christmas day, so no Christmas shots.
But hubby went fishing on Boxing Day and caught his first salmon, 5 pounds in weight, it made his day and he is still talking about it.

This one taken this morning, is of the first of the season's daffodils peeping up through the ground.

Continuing the Christmas theme, this is a nativity scene painted by one of my grand-daughters.

My backyard, with the next door dog barking away at me. If you look closely, you can see the tracks that my dog makes, when he rushes over to the fence to bark back. The two of them are hilarious - they race back and forth along the fenceline, barking like madmen, and as happy as if they had good sense.

Lovely painting by your granddaughter, Picqero! And I'm jealous of the snow, Agony - especially at Christmastime.

A few days ago I posted a photo of my snowman collection. Here's a close-up of one.
