  1. Lovely light! Fun comments to read today, too.
    I like your response for inside Marilyn


  2. Where is the gingerbread man who lives in the gingerbread house?


  3. well I like your “inside” shot for a few reasons (like the way the tall lines in the plant/tree work with the verticals in the chair spindles and maybe even lines in the door) – but for some reason – my favorite part of this nice photo was the gingerbread house and the plant. The colors in the plant and the little candies on the house draw the eye in (at least my eye) and there is also a bit of playful pattern with the shapes in the falling leaves and the lined up shapes in the candies.

    But even more special – to me – is the way the gingerbread house sits in the tray – in this quiet scene you have captured – with a relaxed mood – well to see the resting (drying?) gingerbread house, with the two cookies in front – it whispers of “fun” – it has a warm family touch and then the eye moves around to the pretty fabric (that seems to match the vase to the very front right) and then – the strong grandfather clock –

    okay, okay, enough from me – but this is one of those pictures that really does say a LOT!


    • Thank you 🙂 It is indeed a telling picture — and says (among other things) my granddaughter leaves projects in the dining room for granny to deal with. I can never bring myself to throw them away so the dining room has morphed into my granddaughter’s museum. It will continue to collect her kitchen-based projects until we have company for dinner — at which time decisions will have to be made.

      Ah, the tree. I bought it when I first moved into the house. A mere sprig, now it’s hitting the ceiling. The little plants began life as cuttings and have thrived on neglect as succulents are wont to do. It makes a pretty picture. I love the light through the French doors — one of my few personal upgrades to the house — it was originally an ugly glass slider.

      This is morning, my favorite light of the day.


      • Hi – and thanks for the follow up. and my aloe vera plant it similar – thrives when left alone! – oh and nice upgrade from the sliding glass doors….much better. 🙂

        also, read in the other comment how the gingerbread materials are made of “building material” and so true, so true – closer to styro.


  4. Is anyone going to eat the gingerbread house?


    • I sure hope not. The “gingerbread” they use to construct these things is a building material. It’s only technically edible. Closer to Styrofoam than cake. It’s my granddaughter’s construction. She builds things, then abandons them in the dining room where I get to figure out what to do with them. So it’s sitting with the flowers. Maybe it’ll still be around next Christmas. Entirely possible. Even likely!
