The Holly and the Ivy (reprise)

A year ago I shared this photo for Exhibit A’s Christmas meme. I love its cold wintry feel and it always makes me feel a little shivery when I look at it. Exhibit A’s reopened the Christmas prompt so I thought I’d do a different version this year and create an image with a warm and cosy feel. So, for Sinful Sunday and the Christmas prompt, here is The Holly and the Ivy (reprise). 

Sinful Sunday


  1. Oh yes . . . definitely warming . . . and arousing!
    And, of course, a beautiful photo!!!

  3. Oh, my! This image is absolutely stunning. Makes me think of a vintage French Postcard.
