It was ten below when I got up this morning – definitely to be an indoor day.

I recently came upon one of those recession – related phenomena: an entire display of expensive and unsold ornaments, going for pennies on the dollar. The quality of the ornaments was unbelievable and I entered into a feeding frenzy.

This afternoon I began to disassemble the tree and had the new ornaments carefully grouped and ready for packing. There was something about the ornaments as they were caught in the winter sun that had me reaching for the camera.

I must admit that these images remind me a little of the paintings by Janet Fish that we discussed, and of a certain Dutch feel in the light.

Do they remind you of anything else?
