T Stands For Shades of Alice


By now you might be aware that the handsome and lovable Bleubeard and I are hosting Art Journal Journey this month.  My theme is count your blessings.


I admit I wasn't thinking about Alice in Wonderland

when I created this page to honor fellow bloggers who join me every Tuesday for T. 

Instead I was thinking how blessed I am to be sharing a common bond

and a genuine bond of camaraderie  

based on drinks and drink related posts.

For this page, I began with an ad from a local grocery store, then added more ads of drinks.  I stamped and cut the apple from a piece of red printer paper.  Then I wrote the words on that same paper and added them, realizing the sentiment sounded very much like something out of Alice in Wonderland.  Thanks to my T Tuesday blogging friends, I am truly blessed and know it.

Now that you know how blessed I am, it's your turn to share a drink related post.  Feel free to discuss anything. Your post may include photos, a place you visited, movies, postcards, books, sketches, mixed media, drawings, paintings, tags, scrapbooking, or other art that is digital, hybrid, or traditional, as long as it in some way relates back to a drink, any drink.  Then, please link your story below.  The photos don't have to be taken on Tuesday, and can relate to anything with a drink.  Please use the direct link to your T post, not your blog in general, so we can find you easily.


Bleubeard and I are thrilled you chose to spend some time with us today and hope to see you at Art Journal Journey, too.

eat me, drink me... i was immediately thinking of Alice... great idea! happy t-day!

Yes, those words are shouting Alice to me as well. It is a fabulous page using the advertising paper.
What really struck me was the cost of the food, it seems so much more affordable in your stores , for example the Limes 10 for $1, I would be lucky to get 3 for that price here.
Happy T day wishes, you have given us a lovely variety of drinks to choose from today, but as we have had some welcome rain and its been cooler today, I'll have a coffee with some coffee mate on top.

What a sweet page, Elizabeth. You always put great messages in your pages, index cards, and journal pages. You're thoughtful in every sense of the word ;-)

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

I have felt so blessed to have been welcomed and included in this blogging community. You're the best, most inclusive and encouraging host I've ever known. You are a blessing :) Happy T Tuesday!

Lisca Meijer said...

Yes, we are very blessed. I feel very blessed to be part of your T for Tuesday.
In a different sense I feel very blessed because we (in the developed world) have such an abundance of food available.
Looking at your page, I also thought of Alice in Wonderland (I think everyone did) and I also noticed how cheap it all was compared to what we pay. Perhaps the pages are very old?
Happy T-Day,
Lisca

Kate Yetter said...

Yes, totally made me think of Alice. So glad that we get to spend Tuesdays together sharing with each other. I am blessed to have met so many wonderful ladies. Love your additions to your grocery ad.
Happy Tea Day,
Kate

Clever drink page. I love how you thought to use a newspaper style add for your page. That is smart. It makes such a great background. And I am glad you included some diet coke-smile. Yup, and it could add a little Alice in Wonderland on it too. But I guess that's not really T day related. Hope you have a great T day, Hugs-Erika

I do not think there are many that would not be reminded of Alice and her wonderland with the words *Drink me* *Eat Me* All delicious and a necessity to help us thrive. Fabulous page Elizabeth & Bleubeard of course..
Although I do not participate it's always good to catch up with those I'm lucky enough to visit and wish EVERYONE else a Happy T Day..
Hugs Tracey xx

Meggymay said...

I'm calling back to mention that the photos of Sizergh could be familiar to you as Chris has shared a number of beautiful photos in the past. As for the grounds looking 'green' it was June when we visited so the lack of rain wasn't so telling as it became in the weeks that followed.
Have a lovely day today.

What a cool way to remind us to eat healthy, Dear Elizabeth! Your ideas should be added to grocery ads. I'll bet a lot more people would pay attention to them! Hugs...RO

Lol, I tried to “Reply” to you on my blog, and couldn’t. Ugh. Anyhow, here it is, ...just saying I’m also a Lavender drop out! The milk cartons are a good idea. Maybe in the spring? Thanks!
