Hope you are all well. I am joining in with T for Tuesday at Elizabeth's altered booklover blogspot.
For that I must show you something drink related.... well here goes:
It is a postcard of the Russian empress Elizabeth Petrovna (1709-1761). It was sent to me by Marina from Voronezh in Russia. She tells me that she likes good food, quiet romantic evenings and interesting books. (That's my girl! I do too!) And she dreams of going to Australia and the Maldives. (Can I come with you?) But what has this to do with drink?
Well, look at the beautiful stamps:
The one on the left is of a gastronomy series and features a samovar (urn) with blini (pancakes) with red and black caviar.
Here is a video of how to make blini.
The stamp on the right is a joint issue of Russia and Monaco - History of Automobile Production - ZIL-111B.
And if a samovar wasn't drink related enough, I'm going to leave you with my latest mug:
I like to sit in our little courtyard under the shade of the vine. When it started raining, we forgot to check if there were any leaves on the drain hole.... result... a flooded courtyard! Here is DH trying to brush away the leaves so that the water can drain away, but couldn't quite remember where the hole was!
That's it from me today. Have a great Tuesday!
See you tomorrow when I link up with Whats on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW).
