And this is how, ladies and gentleman, we have arrived to week 50! It is sobering to think we have 2 more weeks and then we start a New Year! so we'll not think of that :)
This week's prompt is 'A pop of Red' ~ which is so perfect, as this is the season for red and green, isn't it?
I still haven't decorated anything, the cleaning part will be done this weekend, and hopefully the tree next one. So I don't have (as of yet) any red popping for Christmas. Except 2 little things :)
One is another Christmas tradition: decorating the gingerbread house. As much as I want to make lots of things from scratch, I draw the line to certain items, and the gingerbread house is one of them. I can cook, I cannot bake that much - my idea of following a recipe is to read it once and then work from memory. That works (most of the time) with cooking, as you see what's happening and can correct while 'driving' around... in baking - not so much :) So we'll stay with the ready-made gingerbread houses (or components).
|What to do next, what to do?!|
|Adding 'lights' to the house - a very delicate process!|
|And now - can we eat it?!|
The second one is a true pop of red:
We can't have Christmas without the poinsettia, can we?
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays (although I understand this year all the other winter holidays have passed already... however, if you celebrate something during this time, I hope you're having a grand celebration!)
And please make sure you visit the others red-pops - it should be a bright get-together this week!
