"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place...I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." -Elliott Erwitt

A Homemade Holiday Giveaway
For a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to Ruche, we asked you to make one of the DIY projects or recipes included in our holiday guide, submit a photo of the completed project, and tell us how you plan on using it for the holidays. The winner is...
The beautiful things I have made for this year's Homemade Holiday Contest are the burlap table runner as a beautiful table covering for all of our family to enjoy, the old script papers, and the felt flowers (as napkin rings). These things are all special and I will be using them as a centerpiece for my dining room table this holiday season.
My 5 year old daughter and I spent a fall afternoon creating the "old paper" together. This paper was made from old song books that were my daughter's great grandparents Christmas songbooks. As we made them my daughter would help me tear out and age each piece, put them in the oven, and roll them up. Now each time I look at the scrolls, I will cherish and remember that afternoon just the two of us got to enjoy together.
All of these will be able to be enjoyed by the sweet family that surrounds us, the blessed time we'll have and the conversation that will all take place around our dining room table this holiday season!
We were impressed by all of the creative submissions and we're happy to show you some of our favorites below. Thank you, everyone!
Cherished, a Romantic Winter Giveaway
To celebrate our winter lookbook, we asked you to describe your favorite lookbook scene and tell us about a cherished memory inspired by the photograph for a chance to win a $50 gift card. Every entry was simply amazing and it was difficult to choose our favorite, but the winner is...
THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS LADY!
I absolutely adore the scene where they are drinking hot tea outside under all the forest greenery, she is wearing this amazing oversized sweater and the simplicity and joy of the moment that is captured in this photo is breathtaking.... This entire scene reminds me of our family holidays. We live in a log home on 8 acres of country and many of my favorite memories take place outside on our back deck drinking coffee. Thanksgiving and Christmas especially all my distant family and some close friends come home and gather together, after a delicious homemade meal many end up out back snuggled up on the deck in chairs around the outdoor fireplace catching up and sharing stories and laughs. The happiness and warmth that this photo brought to my memory was unmistakable.
To everyone who participated, thank you for warming our hearts with your cherished memories.
