Before we begin today, I want to comment on both Deb's and Divers and Sundry's T posts last week. They were both outside the box, and both unconventional. I was totally impressed, and always appreciate when there is an unexpected and unique way of expressing your drink. If you didn't see their posts, you missed two wonderful ones. And both were very different, too.
Now, please join me at home as I prepare for Sally's birthday on Tuesday. Remember. it's still Monday in my world because of that pesky international dateline that breaks time zones into 24 hour segments.
Maybe not as much fun as others' posts might be, but I bought this cake for Sally on Saturday, to celebrate her birthday.
I found some stretchy lace, wrapped the container,
and tied a candle to it. Then I took it to her on Sunday and sang the birthday song to her.
Fast forward to Monday morning and I'm getting ready to wrap her gift.
I will give it to her at whatever restaurant she chooses on Tuesday (28 Mar, 2017).
It's one of those adult coloring books.
Seems she's one of those weirdos who likes to color between the lines. This book will keep her company and give her lots of opportunities to practice. The only thing I didn't like about it is (well, other than the fact I think doodling and coloring are not my cup of tea OR coffee) the book pages don't lie flat.
So what's in my cup, you ask.
This beautiful and incredibly unique tag
was sent to me by my friend Valerie, a great participant in this weekly meeting.
A few up close and personal shots.
Now it's your turn to share your post. The rules are extremely simple. Your drink related post may be anything
from a photo of a
glass, cup, or mug, to an actual drink, or even a sketch or a digital,
hybrid, or traditional page in your scrapbook, art journal, or altered
book. Maybe you'd prefer to share a tag, or photography. You might
choose a postcard or decorated card. Or
you prefer to review a place you visited, a movie or book. It makes no
difference as long as it's drink related. And don't forget that the more unique and outside the box it is, the better I like it. Please tie it back here, and
please link only to your post, not your entire blog. When you link,
Bleubeard, the T gang, and I will be by to visit. Bleubeard
would also like to remind you that your photos may be taken any time,
even months ago, if you choose. Please don't forget to have your Second on the 2nd ready. It can be any post you choose, as long as it's one you have shown in the past.
