Photos that will warm you on a cold, wintry day.

(fireplace gif found on Google Images)

I get such pleasure from other people's photography.  Maybe you have seen these before as I understand they are going viral, but I was doing a little surfing last night and I came across a series of photos taken by a lady whose obvious joy comes from her children.  Meet Elena Shumilova from Andreapol, Russia, her darling children and the animals that they obviously love very much.  They are truly magical photos and you can find the link here.

  18. Thanks, Denise, for the i formation on Elena's photography. I read both stories following your link and the one on Just Something. The children and animals were just wonderful to see and so lovingly captured by their mother.

  20. Very nice! When at home in the winter, I have the fireplaces going every day. When on board the ship in the winter, especially around Christmas, I have to be happy with pictures. ;)

    Happy Sunday from Port Canaveral,

  23. You are such a generous blogger about sharing your finds with us. The fireplace is wonderful and I will visit the link (wanted to comment first because sometimes when I go with a link I forget to come back and just keep wandering).

    I love the tea ceremony detail of the mural inyour new header shot.
