Mariuca, you are just SO observant.

A last minute idea, occurring before grocery shopping for the week, I was shocked to discover that everything was nibble-sized leftovers! These slim pickings were all I could scrounge up that was in large enough portions to be photogenic. I filled in the blanks with all the bottles already on the table ;)

[POST CHALLENGE]

Ok, frankly, I'm flummoxed. I NEVER expected this to do that well, much less ribbon. MUCH less the blue...

All I could come up with was a still life, and that is an art in and of itself. One about which I have a LOT to learn. Thank you for your incredibly generous votes and comments. Always greatly appreciated.

Ha! As Susan just pointed out, it IS my first ribbon as SC. AND it's the first challenge with the new front page layout.

Historic occasion :)

For an artistic still life, this image is either telling too much or too little. I feel that it either needs a lot more background for the number of objects or more aliments crammed in the same space.
I give it a bump
