The Ghosts of Christmases,* Past

* birthdays, acts of spontaneous kindness and impulse buys by me.

Just a quick post here as I was thinking about Christmas and the things that are beginning to gather under the tree!


You can find more close ups (assuming this is a close up!) at Macro Monday 2 and I heart Macro if they are up and running in this season!

Cheers.  SM

I have never thought of gaining upstairs and taking a photo of my library shelves. Yours made for a beautiful shot...especially for all of us book lovers. All the different colors...so nice. Merry Christmas to you and the family. genie

I was trying to see if we had any of the same books but too hard to see what you had there. But thanks for the idea; I may take a photo of my book collection to post.

Books are a nice gift. My family is asking for kindle gift cards for their Kindles and Ipads.

Merry Christmas to you and your family! I Wish you and yours all the best in 2014!

For me, wouldn't be Xmas without books!

btw In the UK now they're calling these images "shelfies"!

Books are great friends of mine. Sadly, when I left Tasmania, I could not pack all of them - I had enough to fill a small shop. But I am still left with a substantial number.

I am with Camera girl - tried to read some of the titles…could manage " Genesis" and " The Ice"….
Anyway - a fun idea and wishing you a Merry Christmas and many more books!
