Another Tuesday is here and that means it's time to share a beverage -and anything else you wish with Elizabeth at her T Stands for Tuesday link up!
These amazing girls and I (for those who don't know-I'm the one at the right in front) have been friends for over 50 years since we met in elementary school! Thankfully we don't live far from each other and have kept our friendships going strong throughout all those years of changes etc. It's not always easy to get together but last week we did and of course I said we had to go to my very favorite Irish place in town! Yes, I am going to make you hungry with pics of our superb lunch...
Two of us had a Punjab Patty (potato farl, sautéed spinach, eggs cooked to order, topped with a Tiki Masala sauce. It looked and smelled divine and I cannot wait to go back and order it myself:) Another friend chose the Tuna Melt and I had my fave -Roasted Pepper, Onion Jam and Brie melt. We all chose the half or smaller portion so we could indulge in dessert:
We all taste tested each of the desserts and OMG just heavenly!! After some hours of laughter while strolling through town we headed home realizing we need to do this more often and are already looking into the next date.
For the art part I am linking to my last entry for this month's challenge at Art Journal Journey (theme is architecture), Try It On Tuesday (the challenge is "lots of layers"), along with the Simon Monday Challenge this week which is "Throwback". We were asked to choose any theme from the last few year's challenges to link. I chose one I missed not long ago-July 2015. The theme one of those weeks was "No Ordinary Paper."
I used Gelli Plate printed papers for the background and hills. The houses are from an ARTchix Studio collage sheet as are the two bird cardboard dies I painted black. Other supplies-sticker words, tiny flowers, charcoal pencil, green marker.
Can't wait to visit around with my cuppa by my side:) See you soon!
