    1. they're made with a bit of orange juice, so they have a slightly 'orangey' essence - thanks!

  5. Thank you for the photos of S words. The snow tires indicate how high the snow had reached. We have never had so much snow!

  9. I never thought the first shot was anything related with snow until I read the caption. Amazing!

    Suvganiyot is a new food vocabulary to me. Thanks.

    1. thanks! 'suvganiyot' is a Hebrew word, and I think the treats may be specific to Israelis, as I'm the only one I know who makes them!

  17. Such a fun and original series of S photos, but my obviously UNoriginal favorite of the batch is "Snow Tires!" :-) The photo is wonderful, and your name for it is very clever.

    Btw, anyone who has Josephine Wall's "Magpie Fairy" as their avatar scores mega bonus points! :-) (She's a favorite artist of mine and that's my favorite of her paintings!)

    1. oh, my goodness, thank you so much for that information! I've been using the image for years not knowing who the artist was, and no matter how I searched, I couldn't find either the image again, or the name of the artist who created it! I've just now been to Ms. Wall's website to leave her a message and thank her for allowing me to use it, as I can now credit her for her beautiful work! you've made me very happy today, Laloofah, and thanks for the kind words and the visit!
