Silver Blue: From a retirement reception on December 2, 2016, the roast beef “slider” style sandwiches, surrounded with grape tomatoes, made for an aesthetically pleasing photo composition. Sail on, Dr. Leavitt!

Silver Blue: This ornament (hand painted) was given to me by my mother from her personal collection. I think a student may have given it to her; still, I love the way it looks as the lights shine through it.

There Must Have Been Some Magic…

By Silver Blue

….in that old silk hat they found….

somemagic1

Silver Blue: Back in the mid-1970s, my mom and I took “punch-out” Christmas decorations and embellished them with glitter. Two of them, Frosty and Mrs. Frosty, adorned our tree every year, and since 2014, have adorned my own tree. Special memories from special times. While the above photo also appears on Silver Blue Photography’s Facebook page, the one of Mrs. Frosty is an Eyes of Silver Blue exclusive.

Ghosts of Christmas Past

By Silver Blue

(C) 2016 F. John Barker III/Silver Blue Photography

Silver Blue: I remember this lighted cardboard Christmas tree being placed in the front window of our home in Charleston, SC, every year until we moved in 1980. Then, it was on my parent’s mantel, and then was passed on to me.  The little cut out stars were, at one time covered from the inside with colored cellophane.  The light, a simple night light bulb, illuminated the tree.

Silver Blue: This angel was purchased (and augmented) by Brian Imes in 2014.  She normally resides on the mantel, but this year is resting under the tree.

Sleep In Heavenly Peace

By Silver Blue

(C) 2016 F. John Barker III/Silver Blue Photography

Silver Blue, who remembers making these in grade school. My mom was homeroom mother who crocheted all the “hangers”. We were given two small pieces of fabric and cotton balls, half of a walnut shell and half a wooden bead with a face painted on it. The fabric was wrapped around the cotton to make the pillow and the main body in the bassinet.  Egads. That was 40 years ago.

Returning to looking to live through the Eyes of Silver Blue

By Silver Blue

Gentle readers, I’ve often said… Experience the world through the Eyes of Silver Blue…Come See Life! Now, it’s time. It’s time for me to pick back up the mantle of The Wannabe Gourmet ( http://www.thewannabegourmet.com ) and to revitalize my Eyes of Silver Blue blogs. While my Ramblings blog will remain permanently closed, I think it to be beneficial for me to share my life through food and photography.

Music continues to be a large part of my life and existence… so… I’ll also be bringing back Life is a Song… ( http://www.music.thesilverblue.com/ ) as well.

Happy Holidays to those who may remember me… or who may be wanting to take a glimpse of life…. Through The Eyes of Silver Blue.

– Jonathan Everyday, Silver Blue, F. John Barker III.
