Good Morning lovely T-gang!
It's Tuesday again and we share something with a drink in it, Coffee, tea, or something in a glass or even a bottle of something. (Mmmm this is making me thirsty).
I'll be linking up with Elisabeth and Bleubeard at T for Tuesday. I have just realized that I have always misspelt Bleubeard (I wrote BlUEbeard). Sorry Bleubeard.
If I am not mistaken there is an anniversary to celebrate today. The third! I have been busy making ATCs for this occasion. I have made eight. I hope that is enough. (I can always make some more).
Yesterday I was brushing gesso on the back of the ATCs that I have made, so that I could write my name on the back.
Here think something along the line of: 'tada!' Of course I can't show you the right side. That would be spoiling it.
I'm sharing the photo of yesterday's breakfast:
Oh dear, I think this one is out of focus. Hopefully this is better:
You get the idea. There is our tea pot with tea cosy and the dried mint leaves in a glass dish. We have cereal with fruit and soya milk. The fruit you see in the picture is called Paraguayo.
They are also called donut peaches or saturn peaches. They are a variety of peach with a different squashed shape, a much sweeter taste and a paler colour inside.
Now for my postcard. This one arrived yesterday from Russia. It is a painting by Konstantin Makovsky (1839-1915) called Boyarynya.
Of course I had to google that and I discovered that a boyarynya is the female of 'boyar'. A boyar was a member of the highest rank of the feudal aristocracies in eastern Europe.
I love all that beadwork on her clothes. And the yellow bits are surely made with gold thread, don't you think? What opulence!
That's it from me. I hope I remember to put an asterix by my name for the ATC exchange! And as I have 8 ATCs made I am happy to swap with whoever would like to too.
Have a fantastic Tuesday!
