On the Hunt for Joy Challenge – Week 2 – Say Cheese

…thanks to Cee for hosting On the Hunt for Joy Challenge

Christmas Tables

It’s been a busy week with lunches with friends, a volunteer Christmas lunch at the Inn, an open house, discovering a new brewery and Christmas dinners with old friends.qukn5u-Vk-Tu2-Z9-GBch0x-Di-A

thanks to Travels and Trifles for hosting this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge

Over the years I’ve had numerous ‘precious pets’ as have my daughters and sisters. Not all these lovelies belong to me but they are someone’s precious pet and I was privileged to have taken their picture.fullsizeoutput-6fd6
