Weekly Winners: December 6-12

Hi! Miss me? I have been absent from Weekly Winners for almost a month. Why? Who knows. My camera and I were on a bit of a hiatus, I guess. But the start of the holiday season -- and the beginning of Hanukkah -- brings me back to the fold.

So without further ado, here's a little bit of this, a little bit of that ... starting with Hanukkah chez Planet of Janet.

Latkes in the oven:

Seriously, people. Trader Joe's latkes. I'll never grate or fry again!!

... And onto the table -- YUM!!

Roo lights the lights for the first night:

Please notice the fine china for dinner on Friday night! Heh.

It's raining! WHOOHOOO!

Even in winter, a little piece of spring appears:

The first official look at Roo's "new" room:

Look very carefully on the left and you'll see her collection of "Twilight" hardback books.
And yes, that's a pretty close approximation of the real color of the walls!

Competition season has begun:

What? You thought I was done with cheer photos? HA!

Roo in the jump-off:

Thanks for visiting ... Now go see the lovely Lotus for more photos and Weekly Winner participants.

I love that color! And at Chez Suzanne, we have similar fine china these days. I'm on strike from doing dishes.

Roo, love the room and you are all over the jump! Good job darlin'!
Janet, we have the exact same "china". ;-)
Happy Hanukka, sweetie!

Yum! I love latkes and those look delicious! The rain and leaf photos are beautiful!

Carolyn Ford said...

I love latkes! Those look wonderful! The rain shot is divine!

Heather said...

Trader Joe's is on my list of places to go this week and I think those latkes made the list of things that need to come home with me!

Suzanne said...

No TJs around here, but I'm wondering if Whole Foods carries something similar. I've got the itch for some latkes. At this point, they're probably going to be made with the Christmas ham!

Denise said...

I have to (regretfully) admit, I know nothing about Hanukkah and your glimpse into it is wonderful! I look forward to seeing more of your photos!

I didn't know you could bake latkes. I've only ever fried them. Love the raining photo

(still waiting in vain for the rum balls!) The room looks nice. What freaks me out is how near the other house looks to be from the window.
(it's just me I guess

I think her bedroom is a half shade darker than our bedroom. I've always loved that color.
