A Red Fantasy

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Red
Franks Tuesday Photo Challenge: Fantasy

A chance to combine two photo challenges.
What can be more colourful and take you into a fantasy world than the Lismore Lantern Parade.

The lanterns come by eliciting ohhhhs and ahhhs from the crowd.

Waiting for a boiled egg

The Ragtag Daily Prompt Tuesday: Butter
Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Textures

While waiting for the egg to boil and have already buttered the toast, my own homemade bread, the inspiration took hold. I grabbed my camera and here is my breakfast. That sounds so Instagram or Twitter doesn’t it!

Yes, yesterday was rather warm and I forgot to put the butter in the fridge

 
I have been searching for a glass butter dish for quite a while. Many of the antique dishes were either not quite right or hideously expensive. I was looking online and one came up in a retail outlet that looked like what I wanted. Yes I did buy it and it cost me $18! The butter dish was $9.75 and the postage $8.25. A bargain for exactly what I wanted don’t you think?  191023_blog_challenge_butter_breakfast_dish
