Days 7, 8 and 9

Is hard to post a picture each day, and i get behind!
Here are Days 7,8 and 9.
I looked up the song, 'I heard the Bells on Christmas Day' and was surprised to find out Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote it as a poem as his son was injured in the Civil war and he was taking care of him.  I was touched by the story and all the words. Especially the last two stanzas.
The challenge was draw a bell.  Day 8 was a red bird, and Day 9 was a fireplace.  The fireplace was drawn with an elegant writer and i kept it all black except for the wreath. I just wanted to do something different.
