T is for Lunch, Tag and Inchie

Hi All. A bit late in the day for me today but I have been busy doing this and that. Hope your day has gone well and thank you for your visit. Welcome to any new followers-the number has sneaked up to 148 and I hadn't noticed until now. 

Happy T Day to anyone who pops in from Elizabeth's. On Thursday we had Vic's mum and her friend Bill here for the day and we seemed to be eating and drinking for the whole 8 hours they were with us. Vic's mum is 88 and Bill is 83 so eating and drinking lots has to be the answer to a long life I reckon.

We had curry for lunch and washed it down with water. Our tap water tastes awful as it is hard water area. If we are going to drink a lot of it we buy bottled water. Vic had made a delicious curry and we had wild rice and potatoes with it. Then came apple pie and custard followed by a box of expensive chocolates that Bill had brought for us all to share.

At Tag Tuesday there is still a week to join us for the Birds and Nest theme chosen by our lovely Wendy. Hope you will join us with a tag made in anyway you like so long as it follows the challenge theme.


I made a digital tag. The background is made from one of Valerie's wonderful bird pictures. The crow's and nest were a free to use picture and the other things were brushes I made in Paint Shop Pro.

Now for my inchie and the theme this week at Every Inchie Monday is peacock


I am pleased to say I have decided how I will display my inchie this year so here are the ones I have mounted so far


They will all be on pennants to hang on a wall.

Love Chrissie xx

I stayed up until almost noon your time to see our Monday inchie, then gave up. I am glad to see your latest, the adorable peacock. I really like how you are displaying them this year. It is a festive way to display them, and makes everything more cheery, too.

I'm so glad you had a good time with your MIL and her friend, because there is nothing better than a good meal and lots of great conversation around it. I have a few friends who can sit around with me for several hours, eating and talking. I only wish Sally didn't eat fast and want to leave as soon as she finished her meal. There is absolutely more relaxing than slow eating and good conversation in between bites of food and drink.

Thanks for sharing your peacock and other inchies, as well as your table for T this Tuesday.

johanna said...

such a great idea to putthe inchies on pennants! they look fab!
happy t-day!

sally said...

I see we both went with the idea of just a head as it's impossible to do justice to a peacocks plumage in an inch!

Looks like a great table setting you have there! Tony is the curry expert here - we are lucky to have hubbies who can cook!! I love your bird tag - we were watching sparrows flying around with bits in their beaks the other day! I love how you are displaying your inchies and the peacock is beautiful! Happy T Day! Chrisx

Divers and Sundry said...

What a beautifully set table! I'd stay and eat more, too, if the table was that attractive :) Happy T Tuesday

What a cute way to display your inchies, especially since you chose a theme to tie them together. Your birds and nests tag is really neat, Chrissie. The crows make me think of the birds we've had this spring. They're not much to look at but they mimic sounds - like our phones and doorbell. lol.

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

Wow, your tag is so beautiful. I just adore the image of the two birds and their nest, and I love how you carried the theme into the background layers as well. Your peacock is just lovely Chrissie, and what a great idea to use pennant banners to display them all!! happy humpday :)
