T is for Tuesday Veggie Smoothie

Hi Everyone!

Today I am joining in with Elizabeth at T for Tuesday 
with a fresh out of the garden smoothie.
I have always enjoyed my smoothies but now that I have fresh veggies to add to the drink that make my mornings just a little bit special. I'm trying to find the good in this life wherever I can. This is a good thing.

 This was yesterday's green day haul

We also had a pizza night. Now I may have mentioned this before, but Mr. M doesn't really like pizza. However, I forgot to take something out of the freezer for dinner 
soooooo this is what we had.

Yesterday, I worked on my textured pieces. I applied the first coat of paint. While I waiting for them to dry I put together this little ditty. 
I textured the background then painted it with acrylics. I added the dried branches to act as trees, then applied the leaves. Not a master piece just something fun to do.

I hope your life is calm and creative. 

Honor and integrity in art, in life.


  1. Your pizza looks yummy and I love your art pages Happy T wishes Kathy

  2. Now you have me wanting a garden smoothie for lunch. Or pizza. I love pizza. I made a pizza over the weekend. Your Fall tree is pretty. Wishful thinking for cooler weather? I don't mind the heat or humidity. You don't have to shovel it. 😺 Take care and Happy T Day

  3. Your veggies are so nice looking Nicole! And I love veggie smoothies too. My fave is a mix of spinach , mangoes and some toasted pecans or walnuts. And your pizza looks so good too!
    Nice textured art. Happy T day!

  4. Homemade pizza is the best, yours looks great! Love that textured background, how did you do that?

  5. Enjoy your smoothies. Nice art. Happy T Day, Valerie

  6. How can someone not like pizza? HOW?

  7. Pretty fall tree piece, Nicole. I've never known anyone who didn't like pizza - lol.

    Happy T-day and have a lovely week! Hugs, Eileen

  8. I have this theory about my internet. It knows exactly when it's Monday at 4 pm, so it immediately goes offline. ATT said they'd send someone Tuesday morning between 8 and noon. Looks like they did, since I'm now online.

    Wow, you gt a lovely green harvest. That's a lovely smoothie, too. It's been SO long since I've had one, and I miss them. Yours looks yummy and perfect for T this Tuesday, too, Nicole.

    I'm loving the texture you got in that autumn tree. it's a real beauty, too. Thanks for sharing it.

  9. Fabulous, the smoothie and pizza look so yummy! I'm loving the texture that you created on your art piece too - amazing 😁. Happy T Day wishes! Hugs, Jo x

  10. Smoothies are a delicious and healthy snack. And your pizza looks yummy! I can't say I know anyone who doesn't like pizza, but obviously they exist.
    Loving the texture on your art piece!
    Happy Tea Day,

  11. Lucky you to have such great garden produce! And that pizza looks delicious. I don't know how anyone doesn't like pizza, but too bad because that means more for you, right? Smile. And I do like those textured pieces a lot. Hope it was a great T day. Hugs-Erika

  12. Nice garden haul ~ and the pizza looks yummy! ~ terrific art piece as well ~ Enjoy your week

  13. I miss cheese so much since I gave up dairy for medical reasons! That pizza looks so good! A wonderful haul from your garden, and your artwork looks great with all the textures Nicole.
    Hope you're having a good week,
    Alison xx

  14. Paintings or mixed media, your creations are always fantastic, Nicole. You are a very talented lady. Hugs, my friend.

  15. It's hard for me to imagine anyone disliking pizza. Surely there's some variant that would please them. On Netflix Street Food (a new series) I saw some cheese-stuffed pizza that looked fabulous. I like it thin or thick, white or red, veggie or meaty, stuffed or plain.

  16. What a good idea to make a garden smoothie! I must look into that as we have so much produce. I never make smoothies really. You have given me an idea.
    Pizza! Last night after a busy day, we decided to go and eat pizza at our village (outdoor) restaurant. We got there at nine, but didn't eat until nearly eleven. It was half price Tuesday (we didn't know) and half the village had ordered pizza. But it was lovely. We only ate half and took the other halves home, so tonight we are eating pizza again. Lovely.
    Happy belated T-Day,

  17. Pizza!!!Oh, and I froze fruit, so a smothie comes to mind. I have fresh things in the fridge, too! :-)

  18. Your pizza looks delicious, as does the smoothie. Lovely artwork. Happy belated T-Day!

  19. Great that you can have a smoothie from items in your garden. I love fruit smoothies, myself. Happy belated T-Day!

  20. The food looks delicious! I love the dried tree branches use as tree and the background looks wonderful! Happy PPF!
