Bosco Visits My Mom's House

Wednesday, January 13, 2016


Hello friends, I hope you are enjoying the week so far.  Ok, again I did not have time to share with you these photos from Christmas, so I'm doing it now.



We all took a long drive to visit my Mom for Christmas.  When we arrived, we let Bosco out of the car and I captured this photo.  I love the way my Mom decorates the outside of her house for the holidays and Christmas.  Look how festive the lamp post is decorated with the snow sled, a red bow, green garland, and a santa sign.  There are pretty wreaths on the house too.  The inside of her house was decorated just as beautiful.  I did not capture any photos of that, as I just wanted to spend time enjoying myself and visiting with everyone.



This is the same photo of the house, but I used the Waterlogue app on my iPhone, to get this watercolor effect.  Have you used this app before?  If not, I suggest you try it sometime, as it's so much fun to use.  I think this watercolor photo would make a nice card or enlarge the photo and make a picture to hang on the wall.  

Thanks for stopping by and see you at the end of the week.

  20. That looks like such a fun app Julie! You must have had such a wonderful time visiting your mom. I know my dad doesn't decorate anymore now that he is older so it's a tribute to your mom that she has such a zest for life and really celebrates the holidays.

  26. Julie, many thanks for joining last week's #WW linky party. I'm playing catch up a little late and I'm sorry for just now visiting. You know how life gets from time to time. Anywho, yes I have used the Waterlogue app. DH got it for my iPad last summer upon a recommendation from a former co-worker who loves it. I like the different watercolor techniques it offers. Unfortunately, I haven't used it nearly enough. Thanks to your reminder, I plan to dabble with it more soon. Have a fototastic week.
