Well, take a look — it’s a page from My Favorite Things album that I started at CKU-A.
I meant to take the photo this morning in some nice natural light, but just kept forgetting. It’s dark in Spokane by about 4:30 p.m. — so you’ll just have to settle for this less-than-desirable photo with flash option.
I love Asparagus and I use black and white gingham and polka dot ribbon a ton!
So .. the winners are:
Post # 4, Carrie for the right vegetable
Post # 6, Melissa – who actually got both questions right. We’ll have her win for ribbon!
This was fun. I guess I should do contests more often eh? BIG Thanks again to Shimelle. Carrie and Melissa, all you have to do is email Shimelle and tell her you ARE one of the lucky winners!
Just in case you care, my journaling reads:
The dictionary says asparagus is a plant having edible roots, but to me it is much more than that. It is my favorite vegetable! I love the fact that when eating it, I feel a bit more refined, than I do eating other vegetables. I love the fact that when I fix it for my family, I get that "I’m-such-a-good-mom" feeling — that, I’m rising above the usual frozen mixed veggies and canned corn in an effort to elevate their culinary experience and introduce their taste buds to the joys of mature dining. These feelings aren’t unfounded either. I recently learned that asparagus is a member of the lily family — and was for centuries the province of the privileged, reserved for royalty. In addition to the fact that when prepared well, asparagus is mouth-wateringly delicious, I also think it is the best looking of all vegetables, from it’s long, graceful stalks to it’s flower-like tips. Asparagus is a beautiful, healthy and culturally respected way to celebrate our need for fiber and our ever-present goal to find palatable low-calorie foods. And, to those that find it odd that I have photographed and scrapbooked a vegetable — I say, hey no one will ever wonder what to serve at my funeral.
You guys are the best — thanks for playing.
I’m off in the morning to Albuquerque, New Mexico to visit Barbara, the woman who won me, and my book at her door! We’ll be partying with about 7 of her friends, and I’ll take pictures to share with you here.
p.s. oh, and the next round of classes will be posted at Big Picture Scrapbooking later this week!
