Orange You Glad It's Friday #17

Welcome to week 17 of Orange You Glad It's Friday!

Wow, time is flying by and Christmas is almost here! I have been getting into the spirit this past week, having visited a tree farm, put up or Christmas tree, decorated our house, and generally been keeping the holiday cheer around for my son to soak in. Since this is his first Christmas, he may not understand what is going on, but he so enjoys the different activities - the lights, music, and family time!

This is a great holiday photo, submitted to us from Freda Mans at Day One. I am a lover of bokeh, and this is such a pretty, simple example. Gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing with us!

Every Friday 12:01am PST, I will open the blog up for posts. Rules are simple. Post a picture that you have taken or piece of art you have created (or have permission to use) with a little or a lot of orange, share your link below, visit others and comment on their orange takes, leave a comment here if you wish.

Each week, I will feature a favorite submission from the previous week with a link to the participants blog.

DON'T FORGET -- Be sure to include an Orange You Glad It's Friday Badge or link back to this blog in your post. To add a badge, just copy and paste the HTML code from below!


I appreciate everyone spreading the word about Orange Friday. See a great photo on another site that has a little or a lot of orange? Suggest they stop by and submit it here. We had a record number of submissions last week, and I hope to see everyone back again and even more new participants in the coming weeks! :)

You can also get updates and reminders of Orange You Glad It's Friday on Facebook! Also, even if you do not have a blog, you are welcome to post photos uploaded to Facebook. Just enter the URL of the photo to Linky Tools below to join!

How exciting...your son's first Christmas! Enjoy! (Our two sons will be in NYC for Christmas this year.) Love that bokeh image; it reminds me that I need to practice some while I have all the Christmas lights around the house.
