Marvelous collage for the holidays, Sallie!! Hope you have a wonderful and very Happy New Year!! Look forward to visiting your site in the coming year, as always!!



Best wishes for the new year. I like all the decorations your neighbors put up. The holiday colors down here are more bright blue and sunshiny yellow!

Beautiful, creative Christmas lighting! Wonderful collage! And love the snowy sand images!

Lovely views from the beach Sally! Even here in S. Calif. it's "cold" in the 40ties at night, and one time we even hit 30 F. Don't know why, but I haven't seen as many residences with lights this year... Have a very happy New Year to you and yours!

Nice Christmas on the beach and lovely Christmas tree! :)
And the decorations are soooo american to me! I always think of the film "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" when I see them! In Sweden we don't have very much lamp decorations outside.

Thanks for your kind comment, Sallie!
Wish you too a Happy New Year!

Very pretty! Happy New Year to you and yours~


I love it. The snow man shot on the beach looks like real snow. Happy New Year!

It is so great to say Happy New Year.

Another wonderful day.


You must have had fun and a good Christmas! There's no need for "artificial" snow in UK., but in the Midlands it's just rain and gales.


How wonderful to celebrate with sand and warmth! Lovely shots.

White sand is the closest we get to snow as well!

Thanks for the multiple comments in 2012 - looking forward to more in 2013.

Cheers and have a good New Year - Stewart M - Melbourne

Gorgeous Christmas pictures!

Happy New Year!


I'd rather have white sand and warmth to walk around to see the pretty lights than snow, which we got a little more of today. :(

Gotta love that "snow"man! Have a happy new year.

Gail Dixon

What neat beach shots! I love the lights, too, and will miss them. The manger scene in your collage is really wonderful. Wishing you a ton of blessings for 2013, Sallie! Thank you for being such a great blogging friend!


I like your white Christmas very much! :-D Wishing you and your family many blessings in the new year.

I like your White Christmas. Wishes for a wonderful new year.


Your White Christmas is whiter than ours was on the west coast of Canada. And much warmer.
I love walking on the beach at any time of year!
Your photos are lovely.
Happy New Year.

I could like white sand snowmen, instead we have enough snow to make some real big ones.


happy new year to you both really enjoy you blog.bob in md

What great photos! We spent Christmas day on the beach and took our own snowman with us! heehee! Happy New Year my friend!


Oh, I love your white Christmas beach shots! You had a whiter Christmas than we did here in my part of Canada. We finally got some snow on Boxing Day!


I coveted one of those palm trees with lights one year when my husband and I went to Florida. Each evening we would walk around the campground and a lot of folks had one or two on their front yard. I never did find one though. The beach looks heavenly. Valerie


Oooo, I like your white Christmas, beach-style! Happy New YEar! xoxo


That all made for a beautiful Christmas. The lights, the white sand. The snowman is very cute!

Leslie Hayes

How wonderful! I love your mosaic of the beachy Christmas! I haven't been to the beach in about years, I really miss it!


Very nice white Christmas!! Love all the lights, WE didnt put up much decoration this yr since the Renovation was going on up until a week before the big Day! BUT It sure was an easy put away this yr due to not overdoing it!


Love your beach scenes and bright colorful lights.. cool palm tree!
Have a Happy and Healthy New Year, Sallie.


Sallie, looks very festive there. I love all the Christmas lights. And the shots from the beach are great, cool sandman! I wish you all the best in 2013, Happy New Year!


i like the beach creativity. :)


A summery Christmas, how lovely. Happy new year Sally.
