~a food blog~? ... . . .

so... .    .
you know, this is actually supposed to be a "food blog". i don't know if you can tell, really. but of course, that is the point.  well, my point anyway.

that everything we do~
is our Food.
Our pure nourishment.
~or not. 
~it's our choice.

so when i approached the window display this time... .
(( it being maybe one of the only windows i know of that is still traditionally based on the 'Current' season or holiday~ ))

 we are now talking... .  thee  ' giving thanks '  holiday.
(( Thanksgiving~ ))
so... .   .      .

what am i cookin' up here?
what am i serving people?
for family?
for friends?
and friends i don't even know yet. or in other words, the passers-by~

what do i taste and feel and nourish myself with while creating this... . 
. ...and what will others taste in turn~?

first of all, i must mention, the owner of this clothing shop is quite the stylist, and quite the cook.
yeah, needless to say... .  these things are dear to my heart.
so, i get to express myself here via  'all things beautiful & culinary' ~

so, the Chandelier/slash/lighting source, is my own.
embellished, of course, with thee serving and eating and nourishing utensils known as
the knife, fork & spoon

then ... .
candles, colored glass jewels, the most sincere ribbon, the spun webs of a spider's gold &  silver, then the tasty pure crisp parchment paper that i so love~

so... .   .      .
what would one wear?
what shall i suggest?
what could possibly encompass all of this majesty?

to keep it fun. to inspire. to entice?
for this sensory celebration of the seasons.
the tactile color and texture and crunch !

.     .  . ...just a few ponderings~

flowers... raining down from the sky ~*
from the ether~*
.....purely delightful ~*

this time i put in a ' fresh ' floral installation  as backdrop for the new merchandise ~ ~ *
i started out with  just a few sprigs of fresh ranunculus blooms & some flowering greens gently hung by ribbons and colored string with a backdrop of just cut blossoming branches  suspended horizontally behind ~ * ~ * such a nice, new energy of the fresh florals to be in the mix and part of the props this time.
.... it's like having a friend there creating the Vision with me ~*

~ well....... all that's needed now is  a simple yet elegant Gardener's frock to step in this scene ~

~ there you go. what else do you need. done.  enjoy..... ~ *

~ jasmine tarts......

~ the sweet, intoxicating scent of Jasmine flowers* ... .  one of the first blooms of the spring !
i love this Jasmine and just want to roll in it and eat it and.... . Become it ~* !
i end up making anything i can think of out of it ~! first, of course... . is a Tart ~ * you know, i've come to love my limitations, as they keep things and decisions so comfortingly simple.
so...... i have just ~1~ lonely pear  in the fruit bowl on the table &  a few berries in the fridge.
then i noticed another first bloom... . my striped rose ~* . ... so that had to get tucked in for a bit of taste and color. the sweet pear sliced very thin to show off the beautiful seeds & core hiding inside. ~ sprinkle, sprinkle, sprinkle ..... .   . and there you go, a true Feast for the eyes, palate & soul ~ *
~ be sure to make some Jasmine sugar to use for everything ... .
. ......... and bake ~ * ~ so sweeeeet !
