Eating dessert first...

"Seize the moment. 
Remember all those women on the 'Titanic' who waved off the dessert cart." 
~ Erma Bombeck

I should have been emptying the dishwasher or folding the laundry.  Instead, this morning I decided to mess with my camera.  It was just one of those things.

I happened to go into the living room because that is where the light is best in this house.  While I was snapping a few odds and ends, I spied some tissue paper that I haven’t put away yet from Christmas (I know, I know….another chore I should have done…) and decided to play with it.  I like what I came up with.  What do you think?  You know, the dishes will eventually get into the cupboard and I will have to fold the laundry or start wearing dirty underwear, but who knows when I will have the opportunity to play with tissue paper and my camera again.

The first one looks like you're unwrapping a stick of butter. That last one is just lovely! You want to follow the ribbon to wherever it goes!

(And I adore Erma Bombeck!)

Erma Bombeck is the best. Wish I had known her in person!! I had a lot of fun with these photos. Glad you enjoyed them.
