Christmas in My Neighborhood #5

Green boughs without colour just don't cut it, but these scarlet ribbons make the swags much more festive!

Today in Minnesota History: 1985- Mary Lund is the first woman to receive a Jarvik-7 artificial heart, in Minneapolis. The device keeps her alive for about a month, until a real heart is transplanted. (Reference: MNHS:ORG)

  4. I so so much prefer this type decoration. Old fashioned and simple. No plastic blowups.

  6. That's lovely, such a great look with the house in the backround. Re the more generously decorated house below that - it probably looked better lit up (hopefully). I saw some garish stuff when I was out taking photos. To me its a matter of taste. And artist talent I guess. Since I don't put up lights myself, I just try to admire the effort at least..

  7. You really have there much more decorating outside than we use to have here.
    We have only different kind small lights, nothing else. But these decorations make a festive atmosphere.
    I can see.
    I have send to you two Christmas cards
    as email, would you look at them perhaps from your "spam post". ( They are send by my real name )
    Have a nice Christmas week!

  15. A decidedly different look! The homeowner in today's photo and the homeowner in yesterday's photo have something in common....
    they're both proud of their Christmas decorations to be sure!
    Nice capture Kate.

  18. Indeed, very different from yesterday's decor. I'd like to say that I prefer today's more tasteful decorations, but there is a part of me that loves the over-the-top "as many lights as possible" look too. Knowing how much effort and care goes into setting up lights, I think that it is really "to each her own" and "the thought that counts"!

  19. This is soooo nice. The lighting on the house in the back really is very very nice as well. I love this type of Christmas decorations.. :) Finally I can log in and see your blog once again. I have been blocked out for some reason. You have lots of great new images. :)
