25 Days Of Maple Hoo Christmas: Day 1

We are so excited to finally have a really nice camera, with really nice lenses and a moderate grasp on how to use all of them here during the holiday season. As handcrafters and nostalgia-freaks, there’s nothing we love more than all the little decorations and things we’ve made and collected throughout our lives to deck the halls of Maple Hoo for Christmas. And our plan for this year is to put up a post every day from now until Christmas celebrating our holiday spirit with a new picture; it’s like Project 365 but more focused and singularly themed.

We know we’ve featured Boomer’s 12 Days Of Christmas before, but never with the 100mm lens!

Twelve Days Of Christmas

Partridge in Pear Tree

Three French Hens

Four Calling Birds

Seven Geese A Laying

Nine Ladies Dancing

Ten Lords A Leaping

Eleven Pipers Piping

    I’m so excited to see Boomer’s 12 Days of Christmas! You know the season has arrived when! Whoo! Tomorrow I am hanging HR’s advent calendar she made for me! I would hang it tonight but I need a piece of doweling.
