Now I am hoping for another snowstorm so I can put a cucumber nose on our snowman. We all bum out when they start to fade on our lawn. We were lame and didn't even make one this season.

Scylla said...

Clickmom, I was pleasantly surprised with the success of the cucumber nose! We were all out of carrots!

jientje said...

I can almost smell the rose and the vanilla!
How do you make vanilla extract?

Kelly said...

Some beautiful shots. Love the rose one.

Have a great week!

Amy Y said...

I love the cucumber idea too! I thought it was a pickle until I saw clickmom's comment. Perhaps my pregnant brain has pickles on it?

The rose picture is beautiful!

laura said...

Hmmm...boy, tough to pick a favorite! I really like how well you use natural lighting in your snaps. :)

I guess my favorite is the walker picture. That was such a fun stage for me with Deeder--he adored chasing people!

laura said...

Oh! And I love your header! How'd you do that?

secret agent mama said...

My favorite is the one of the vanilla extract, in the making!!

Marylin said...

awww Oliver in the walker is just so sweet! I love the rose as well :)

Wendy said...

Cucumber nose...how clever:)

Tasina said...

Wow. You're making vanilla extract? I just burned a pan of muffins so now I REALLY feel lame!!! Great photos this week.

Julie said...

Great photos! I really love the vanilla extract one and the gorgeous colors in it.

I'm with everybody else, the cucumber nose is great (although I think he looks like he's smoking a cigar in the first photo!)

HRH said...

fun pictures.

Scylla said...

Thanks everyone!!

The vanilla extract experiment was begun by my roommate, who combines his foodie traits and his crafty traits quite well.

You take 16 vanilla beans, split them, shave the vanilla caviar out, and drop them into a bottle. Cover with Vodka and shake daily for about six weeks. Then strain.

Also, never buy your vanilla beans at the store. They are about 15 dollars online for a pound of them, and they run 5-7 dollars a piece in the store.

Loves Teh Internets.

As for how I did my header, I created it in a Mac Program, Pages, and then exported it to PDF, saved it as JPG, and then cropped it and sized it in Photoshop elements.

It was fun!

Thanks for coming by!!

Looks like lots of fun with the snowman, and I'm impress with the whole vanilla thing - who knew you could make your very own? Glad you explained, too, about getting beans online because I saw a single vanilla bean for $20 at the grocery store. Love the rose, too. All great shots!

Jenty said...

That rose photo is beautiful!
And that vanilla extract one is fascinating!

The Immoral Matriarch said...

What's a snow man? lol. We don't get much snow in this part of the world.

Those roses are beautiful.

tiff said...

I love the basket of possibility and I love the roses and the vanilla extract in the making.

They are all wonderful photos.

Happy Campers said...

You MAKE vanilla extract? I'm thinking Christmas Gifts idea here!

The snowman made me laugh so hard. I love the cucumber for a nose...it's huge! :)

Great pics...thanks for sharing!

I love the yarn and the look on your daughters face with the melting snowman.

Woman with a Hatchet said...
