I'm sorry I forgot 2nd on the 2nd. I had prepared it last week (a photo from each month) but we went away yesterday, and of course that stuff is on my desktop computer. We will be home later today, but that's too late. As I said...sorry, sorry sorry.
Now for my postcard. Again, because we are not home, it is an old one:
That out of the way, I can show you the photos for the T-Gang. Every Tuesday I link up with Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover to share something with a drink in it. This time it is definitely an alcoholic drink: The bottle of bubbly on New Year's Eve.
I had bought a bottle oc Cava Brut, as real Champagne is expensive (and wasted on me if truth be told). I got my posh crystal glasses out. They only make an appearance once a year as I am afraid I'll break them. They are very fine crystal, hand blown (or should that be mouth blown) and hand decorated. And of course they have that tinkling sound when you touch them. I love them.
I wanted to show you one of my decorations in the tree. I have three of those glass mushroom ornaments. They were my grandmothers. My mum handed them down to me. They sit on a metal clip (bottom right). I treasure those.
Then there's the New Year's Eve potato salad:
I make one every year, as my mother did before me. I add beetroot to the potatoes, hence the pink colour. And with some left over beetroot I cut out the numbers to form the year. It also has hard boiled eggs in it and ghurkins and pulled pork left over from Christmas. I season it and bind it all together with mayonnaise. It's so nice, I really should make it more often....
I don't know about you, but I love Pinterest. I have many pages. My largest collection is 'Street art and Graffitti'. On Friday I shared some street art by chalk artist David Zinn. He creates cute creatures on the pavement. Today I will share a few more:
Don't you wish you could do that in your yard... just sweep the leaves under the cement!
That's it from me today.
I wish everyone a very happy and above all healthy New Year!
