Here we are again on Tuesday.
I received a lovely postcard from Lithuania this week, which I would like to share with you:
It was sent by Zydrolè, (who now lives in Berlin. Yes, that's confusing)). She writes: "This card shows one street in Vilnius, Lithuania. A group of artists had an idea to revive the street and decorate it with artworks related to litterateurs. You can see on the wall various small objects made of metal, wood, glass etc in the honour of litterateurs. "
Yes, I puzzled about this word 'litterateurs' and looked it up. The Oxford dictionary defines it as: A person who is interested in and knowledgeable about literature. Merriam-Webster: a literary person; especially : a professional writer.
I found this photo on the internet. For everyone who reads Lithuanian literature, this place is like a temple. Artworks mounted on the walls of the Literatu street (Literatų gatvė) are dedicated to the literature workers: writers, translators, everyone who has link with Lithuania and is important for Lithuanian or world literature.
The weather here in Spain has improved again (since we had the snow) and we are able to eat outside again. Yesterday I made a quinoa chilli and found some mince meat in the freezer so i made some burgers, which hubby cooked on the BBQ. So my contribution to Elizabeth's T-party is this:
Our drink is Radler, my favorite beer when the weather is warm. It is cloudy as it has lemon juice in it.
Cheers! Me dears!
I have some more awesome street art to show you:
It can be found in Toulouse (France) and was made by Hendrik Beikirch in 2016.
One more thing I'd like to show you is this:
Many of you will have heard of the artist Denthe. She has a blog that I love to follow. She also publishes calenders (I have one on the wall). Lately she has started to create art on old maps and I just love what she is doing. This is her blog: http://denthe.blogspot.com.es/
The quotes are good too.
It is very early on Tuesday morning as I am writing this. I'm going to bed to sleep a few hours, then up early as we are going away again for a couple of days in our campervan. It is my birthday on Thursday so it is a little birthday treat really. I don't want a present, as I have all i could ever want. So just being out and about in nature and a bit of sunshine is a lovely present. (Consequently I won't be able to comment until Friday as the campsite we are going to does not have electricity or wifi. Hope you don't mind...)
Please join me at Elizabeth and Bleubeards's T-party.
Have a good week,
