Iron Bird and Christmas Trees!!

One of my favorite Christmas traditions  is to hit up the Art Knapps just outside of White Rock B.C. to capture some photos of their luxurious seasonal decor! Each year it's different, but always so beautiful. It actually makes my heart sing!!  You can probably see why, with all this delicious color tugging at my heart strings!!

Lucky there were so many people, otherwise I may have done a jig.... not really, my hip just isn't conducive to dancing these days! But it really does make me that happy!! I know my friend couldn't tell because I was so focused on trying to get photos! 
It was difficult to get these photos because people kept stepping into my line of fire! Oops I just notice one there!! Didn't even see her.....so lets play where waldo. Guess I better check the other photos a bit  closer!  We usually go on a week day, this year we braved the very busy Sunday!!
I can't even imagine the planning that went into these beautiful displays! Some amazing artist I suppose.   I always wonder about the people who design and facilitate such a feat. Just like I always wonder about the writers of a good television program. Who are these people? Why don't they get the accolades they deserve when they can make you laugh one moment and cry the next!

We managed to fit in a lunch before hand too!! Cupcake is returning home today from some very cold temperatures up North. I was hoping she could enjoy these photos while waiting in the airport!!
I've been spending awesome time with Beardo, we barely cooked since she's been gone. However we have accomplished quite a bit... Excited for her return and to hear all about her adventures, and how she coped with the -21 below zero Celsius temperatures!! She does not do cold well!!

 I'm so excited to share this newly recorded song "Iron Bird" that Beardo wrote for Cupcake last year  when she traveled to England on Business!! He's a folk artist, hope you enjoy his music!!! I'm so proud of him!!

Wow, those Christmas-decorations look awesome! I like that they use different colours and not just the traditional ones. Must be great to see in reality. Beardo has a very good voice. Lovely song!

I don't think I have ever seen such a beautiful, colourful Christmas display. Lifts my heart. Thank you for sharing them.
I tried what looks like it might be the link to 'Iron Bird' but it didn't work for me. Perhaps it's an Ipad thing I'll try on my Macbook

Oh My - these displays are just yummy with color. I can't decide which one I like the best - but the all red and black one is pretty dramatic. Thanks for sharing!

This was a fun post Mz. Giggles. I like all that glitz and glitter. We have a "Festival of Trees" here, where different businesses decorate a tree and donate it, there is a show for the public, then someone buys them and the $$ goes to charity. A beautiful sight to see. You would like it.
