T Stands For Catch Up, Part 2

Once again I'm playing catch up by showing photos that had been on my SD card.  These photos were taken a mere two days before my friend Sally went to the hospital to have her infected big toe removed.

I bet one of the T Tuesday group recognizes this book!  Yes, it's a gift I received in time for my birthday from Krisha at Krisha's Keepsakes.  And it is filled with many lovely pockets filled with art supplies, along with lovely sentiments, and other goodies.

You can see that Sally is looking at the page Krisha created with her in it.

And talk about TEA!!  From stamped images of tea bags, tissue tea bag holder, a darling tea cup charm, and TEA, too, this page is ready for T(ea) this Tuesday.

More tea, this time tucked into a wonderful die cut, and accompanied by a tea pot charm and some awesome flowers.

I thought this was one of the best photos of Sally I had ever taken, and was so pleased to be able to show this printed copy to her.  Instead, she said how bad her hair looked!!  Unlike me, she doesn't like bangs on her forehead.

The back of this gorgeous book

is complimented by the front,

which holds a darling tea bag charm.  Krisha, you will never know how touched I was to receive this beauty.  It sits in my living room for all to see when they enter.  "Thank you" doesn't seem grateful enough, but for now, it will have to do.

A few days earlier,  Sally and I had gone to Byblos, a Lebanese restaurant we really enjoy.

I can't believe I didn't get a photo of our drinks (which of course was water with lemon), or my appetizer, which was also hummus.

Please share your drink related post this week by linking below.  It can be anything drink related, such as art, scrapbooking, cards, sewing, digital, or a lovely handmade book like the one given me by Krisha.  It can even feature a mug or cup.  Whatever makes you happy.  And remember, photos do NOT have to be taken on Tuesday.

And because many of you love journals and poetry, I thought I would tell you about a new blog you might enjoy.  It is run by Robyn from WOYWW fame, and I'm trying to get the word out.  Here is the direct link:

Also, don't forget Seth Apter's 6th Annual Buried Treasure.  I've participated for the past five years, and plan to do so again this year.  Read about it here.

That book is great. Good job, Krisha!!!

I don't think I've ever eaten Lebanese food, although I like Middle Eastern food in general (esp. falafel, shwarma, and biryani). Would you recommend it?

What a beautiful book! I hope Sally is healing nicely. I've never had Lebanese food. There are Middle Eastern restaurants here, but I'm not sure if there's a specifically Lebanese one. I'll have to look around.

I've never had Lebanese food either but I do love hummus. Sometimes it doesn't love me though. :)
Happy Tuesday!

What a beautiful gift from Krisha! So thoughtful to make it tea themed!
I agree that is a terrific photo of Sally with a big smile!

I love hummus but have never tried Lebanese food. No local restaurants but perhaps next time I am in NYC I'll search one out.
