Christmas in My Neighborhood #4


This is a simple holiday decoration in my favorite bakery/cafe, called Bread and Chocolate, located on Grand Avenue. For a summer photo of this same spot, click here.

  8. This is a really nice photo of a pretty spot. I like it when they build these nooks into a wall.

  10. I'm thinking now of chocolate croissants, one of my favorite breakfast treats and so easy to make if you can'at get to a bakery to buy. I think I'll put that on my Christmas morning menu.

    It's very pretty, this picture, Kate.

    I hope you are having a fine day. I'm glad to hear you are not stressing over Christmas.

  14. Oh, this is wonderful! And the comparison with the summer photo is fantastic : definitely shows that a photo shows as much or as little as you want it to! Great lesson.
