Up Up & Away!

This is one of my favorite Christmas houses, and I just have to show you year after year. From a distance, nothing seems unusual.


But take a closer look. On the front porch is a pair of penguins flying in a hot air baloon!

so very true, we rise by lifting others. super quote. you would love the house that you liked on one of my walkabouts. it was aqua with brown shutters and the shutters are pieces of wood nailed together. they did the outline in aqua lights. another house i saw yesterday mroning and have passed all month, had the lights on and they are aqua and hang down like icicles but they also throw zillions of aqua lights on the entire wall, its gorgeous

That house looks great. I would love to have that many lights outside. Of course I don't want to have to do the work. I would need someone to put them up and then take them back down...lol
Those penguins in the hot air balloon are adorable. I love those snowflakes in the tree too.

Very happy you shared this lovely house. Their decorations along with that delightful penguin pair in the balloon are delightful. I also enjoyed the quote you used today. So very true!

Do you have snow? We woke up to several inches and it is still coming down here.

A true and wise quote. A fun house. And a good friend in you, Ginny. It all makes for a great post. Happy New Year!

Love the penguins and especially the thought at the end.
Being kind and lifting others up is the best way to go.
Have a terrific week Ginny.

Those penguins are adorable. - Happy New Year! - I hope to visit more often and want to also thank you for all your visits/comments to my own blog. - Yes our Christmas breakfast is a bit (sad) missing those who have gone but also happy because we still cherish our wonderful memories of them.

Love looking at folks' Christmas light displays. No matter how many times we drive past, there we always find something we had not seen before. May 2022 be filled with the light of love!
