    Wow. Amazingly warm tones in this sweet composition, Marie. Perfectly set up and great dof. How do you do it :)

Thanks, Nikki and Doc... Since you mentioned the counter top, Doc, I have to tell you... I stopped by the local Tile Shop the other day and asked if they had any discontinued display boards. They did and since they usually just throw them away, I got them free of charge. This one had such wonderful warm tones and it reminded me of brown sugar... So I pulled out the glass canister, filled the spoon and took the shot :)
Thanks again!

Beautifully done Marie. Wonderful tones & textures.
I've gotten freebies from the carpeting stores & the wall paper stores as well.

It works out well to be able to get cheap props that way. :)

They don't sell brown sugar here in Switzerland,(crazy) so maybe you could load up a truck full and sell it by the "spoonful". Another great close up shot, Marie!
