WOYWW 292 Three kings and a potato salad
Happy New year everyone!
This is the potato salad I make every New Year’s Eve. (The pink colour is due to the beetroot.) We had it at midnight with a glass of champagne.
It’s Wednesday so that means we bloghop from one desk to the next (See Julia’s blog if you don’t know what I’m talking about).
I’m sure we’ve all got hopes and expectations for the new year, even resolutions and targets. My promise to myself is that I’m going to have a go at mixed media! I’m taking the plunge and I’m going to get messy.
I’ve joined The Original Documented Life Project™ and here on my desk is the start of my first art journal page, which is drying. The theme for January is: How to face a blank page, and the art challenge this week is: use book paper.
My whole desk looks like this:
I’m doing a scrapbook page for the CSI challenge which is due in a couple of days.
Spot the out of place item....
baby bottle teats. Someone (I can’t find who it was... sorry...) had written about using baby bottle teats to cap glue bottles so that they don’t dry out. I watched a video too and it looked like a brilliant idea, so I went out to buy said teats. (see photo) But I got a shock when I saw the price! 7.50 Euros! That’s more than the glue! So I won’t do that again (and I’m too shy to take them back, besides it’s half an hour’s drive into town).
Yesterday was Three Kings (Los Reyes) festival here in Spain. Important for the children as that’s when they get their presents. Wise men brought gifts to baby Jesus. Popular legend have us believe it were three kings although this is not biblical. There are usually parades with ‘kings’ throwing sweets to the children in the streets. In the bigger towns the parades are really spectacular, but here in our village it is all a bit more modest....
That’s it for today folks, thanks for visiting. I’ll try and visit as many as I can over the course of the week.
