A Postcard A Day - Tuesday 10 July 2018 - T for bottles

Hello lovely peeps! It's Tuesday again and time to join the T-Gang with a beverage. Well, I have plenty of those today, of the alcoholic kind...

I want to share some more photos from our trip to Denmark:

Off the island of Moen (red on the map),

 lies the tiny island of Nyord, connected to Moen with a causeway. The island of Nyord has been kept in the traditional style, no cars allowed (only residents) and it all has an oldie worldie kind of feeling. Here is another map with Moen top right and Nyord just northwest of that.

One of the old buildings was a distillery:
Our friends wanted to go in there to buy some Limoncello. I kid you not, I have never seen so many bottles in my life!
They were doing good business. It was difficult to get a photo without any people in it.

The also sold t-shirts and crafted articles.
I think the limoncello (or something like that) was in this corner. Our friend made a coctail consisting of: half limoncello, half champagne and crushed ice in a glass. We had it that evening and it was delish!
I think the glasses were for sale too.
We didn't go upstairs, but perhaps there would be more bottles!?
I like the little sayings with play on words. This one can not be translated.
Enough beverages for now. I don't want to get the whole T-Party drunk!

Of course I also did some cards this week. I haven't received any as I have not been sending any, so I got busy writing some yesterday. This is an image of a poster made by Alphonce Mucha, the .Moravian artist, 
I can't remember what it is called as I have already posted it.

The next card is our national dish (well, here in the south anyway). Some people ask for food pictures of the national dish. Paella is a rice dish made in a large flat pan. It has meat (usually rabbit) as well as fish and seafood in it.
The Valencians claim it to be their dish. And they make it very well indeed. But it is made all through Andalucia too.

So I will leave you with the paella and lots of booze as I go visit Elisabeth and Bluebeard at Altered Book Lover.

Have a good week and stay sob... I mean safe.




  1. I was laughing at the signs, while admiring all the bottles. More bottles than I could ever imagine. And all so different, too. Just don't go in lonely (grin).

    Lovely postcards. Both so different and unique. I like how you pair them with what people request.

    Thanks for sharing this incredible distillery, all those bottles, the Island of Nyord, all those bottles, the cute sayings, all those bottles, and your postcards with us for T this Tuesday. BTW, did I mention I loved seeing all those bottles?

  2. What a fun sign, and limoncello is always delicious. Looks like a wonderful island to spend a holiday. You've got some wonderful postcards, too. Happy T Day - chers! Hugs, Valerie

  3. Oh I do love a good play on words:):) This looks like a lovely place to visit-especially to not have cars all over. The distillery looks like a great place to get almost any kind of drink you want and the limoncello one you had sounds especially good! great looking postcards. I know whenever I was in France I picked up food/recipe postcards:) Thanks for sharing another adventure and happy T day!

  4. Wow what a fun shop and an excellent play on words too I have made lemoncello-not distilled-and it is really delicious I was told it came out of Italy I think it was.
    enjoyed your postcards you find such pretty and unique ones.
    Happy T Day Hugs Kathy

  5. I love the sign, what a great place to visit, cant believe how many bottles there are, not unlike the bodegas in Spain!
    The Spanish do love their Paella but inland they tend to use rabbit and snails, I didn't try it but my DH loved it.

  6. Your photos of the distillery were fascinating. Loved seeing all those bottles.. I have heard of Limoncello... At the welcome center where i work a few days a week we have a little gift store that sells crafted turtles made from the limoncello seed... interesting.. Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  7. A fun shop this distillery and your postcards are beautiful. I love paella and I love limoncello/champagne mix!
    Happy T-Day dear Lisca!
    Hugs, Susi

  8. Funny post, Lisca. I enjoyed the tour of tiny Nyord. I would enjoy some paella with the drink your friend concocted very much ;-)

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  9. Wow, what an amazing place you visited, I've never seen that many bottles either ...lol 😉. I love Alphonse Mucha and the postcard is beautiful; I believe it is called Ivy. We had paella last week too, it was so delicious! Happy T Day! J 😊 x

  10. That's a fascinating place. It's interesting how many things can't actually be translated so that the fun of the original comes through. Plays on words just never translate well. I've never had paella, but it looks tasty. Happy T Tuesday

  11. Someone had a sense of humour writing the signs in the distillery.
    It looked a super place to visit and that cocktail sounded delicious.
    The postcards looked super as well.
    Happy T day wishes Lisca.

  12. Haha! A drunken t Party! :) The national dish looks yummy. I don't think I have ever had it. I had Polenta for the first time today when we went out to an Italian restaurant instead of the pasta. Loved it!

  13. It looks like you had a lot of fun in Denmark. I don't drink but I love all the colored liquid in the glass bottles. that card you made featuring that Alphonce Mucha poster is so beautiful!! Thank you for sharing.
    Happy Tea Day,

  14. though it would not be my desire to taste them all, the look of all these bottles is gorgeous! happy t-day!

  15. Oooh! I bet that place had a great aroma! I love the Mucha postcard! I have never tried Paella, there is a lot of sea food so I probably wouldn't, even if I could, but is sure does look colourful! Belated Happy T Day! Chrisx
