Still working on my holiday photos…I ate a lot of powdered sugar donuts today. You know, when you are working on a display you want to make sure that things taste just right. For the photo. That and you don’t have time to fix anything better. And what is better than a powdered sugar donut, anyways? It helps the photos to look less staged, too, with all of those crumbs all over the tablecloth.
The little things in the star dish above are not donuts, though. You wouldn’t want to eat those. They are shells. Aren’t they pretty?
So between Bing Crosby and my donuts, I am making some progress. You can’t get into the holiday spirit without Bing.
I will be back with more photos tomorrow (I will show you a several a week for the next few months!) and we can start talking about how to scent our homes for everyday and the holidays. I’m counting on all of you to pitch in on this one. Start thinking now (but don’t post it yet, we want to do it all on ONE post!) about your favorite home scents, favorite candles (brands and scents) or methods to scent the house, favorite laundry soaps, cleaning products, non-allergenic ways to scent the home (or keep it from smelling at all), things you bake or boil to get things smelling nice, tips, tricks, whatever! As long as it helps your home to smell good and not bad, we are going to list it all! Then when we need to know what the best smelling candles are, the best smelling laundry soaps, non-allergenic products, or potions to boil on the stove to scent the air, we will have to look no further than our own resident blog readers and all of their informative comments.
You’re the best! I really appreciate all of your comments and emails. Thanks to each one of you who has stopped in! You are always welcome here.
