The Real Deal....and Cranberry Candles

So, I'm totally a blog stalker for this wonderful blog called Frenchy's finds. She had something like this posted a few days ago, and I thought it was a perfect alternative to tag.....with the photography and all. (she also has a AWESOME recipe for lotion which I tried and will post later!) I had few Cranberries left over from Thanksgiving and didn't want them to go to waste. I saw this idea in Real Simple this month and thought how perfect these would be for entertaining. Very simplistic, plus, I'm just the kind of person who likes to have candles going most of them time while I'm home. I'm also the kind of person who will drive clear across town to make sure they are blown out....I blame that on genetics....that and fear of fires.

See how they look so festive and bokehey?



Well...this...is actually what it looked like. Not that exciting or pretty. Just normal. It's all about perspective!

My table looks just like that! I thought I was doing pretty good on cards until I got to the "s" page in my address book- with Sandlians and Smiths, that takes up a lot of pages in my book, so I gave up for a while. :)

Speaking of addresses, do you have Kevin's new one that you can email me?

Ooooh, I can't wait to see how your lotion turned out! And stalk away; I'm reciprocating. :) Oh, and red berries! Red berries!
