A full wood holder by the back door.
Aromaleigh mineral makeup sending out inexpensive trial packets (with no shipping charges) so I can play around and see what actually works with my skin tone (please excuse the rare and icky photo of my tired-looking, winter-weary, test-makeup face with no foundation.)

A favorite meal of ours is one consisting of zakuski – a Russian word for appetizers. Chef Jeff prepared a zakuski meal for New Year’s.

It was also accompanied by vodka (traditional) and Scandinavian berry liqueurs (a new tradition).
