It's Christmas-The Nook



Black Friday was spent decorating this NOOK while watching the movie, The Town Christmas Forgot.
if you want to read the why and the how and the aggravation of this Nook ..... click on NOOK 
 Same time, same place but look at the difference in the photos. Above with White Balance on Shade
and below is White Balance on Tungsten....


The snow is on the ground.
The family's all in town, it's Christmas.
The children want to know
Why we hung the mistletoe, it's Christmas.
Then silently the night turns on a magic light
And it's Christmas all over the world.

 And I hope that Santa Claus remembers every child
Because it's Christmas.
The lights upon the tree
Make delightful melody, it's Christmas.
There's a choir out in the night,
singing songs by candlelight, it's Christmas.

These are the words to Ronnie Milsap's It's Christmas, one of our favorites.

Your nook is always so pretty and even more so with the Christmas lights. That is a really pretty song, I don't think I've heard it before.

Your nook is AWESOME! And your camera changes it to different nooks. I think it is well worth the work of cleaning it. It really says CHRISTMAS! Like the song too!

...and such a fabulous, festive header as well!

Lovely new Header pic.

Lovely photos.

I don't understand what you have done with filters and etc., but you do. And they are wonderful effects.

I prefer the white balance on shade, myself. :-) Warm ambiance color, to me.
