Today is the T-party over at
Bleubeard and Elizabeth's. It's a fun place to visit so be sure to drop by.
My week just seems to have flown by. I have been busy in the art room besides all the other things I do. A trip to Coos Bay to do a bit of shopping before it gets to crazy busy. No, not for a turkey. Our TG dinner will be manicotti this year with homemade bread. I can get it all made the day before and just pop it in the oven. What are you plans?
I got some of the clay pieces painted. It doesn't show in the photos but all of these are irridescent with paint and mica. They don't look like much now but once they get attached to spirit dolls and wall hangings they will shine.
How lucky am I? Mr. M. saw that I was strugling to create something with the wrong materials I have on had. Today, he hands me the mail. Now, I didn't order anything from Amazon. He just gave me one of those, look what I did for you, smiles and shrugged. I opened the box and OMG!!!! just what I needed (and wanted)
Liquid Latex. Ya know to make creepy things. LOL!!!!
Last Thursday I mentioned I am in lemon mode. LOL. I eat lemons like oranges too.
Nothing like whipped lemon shortbread cookies with homemade lemon curd.
To get into this party I have to show a drink.
I don't drink pop very often but when I do a diet A&W Rootbeer hits the spot.
That's it for me. Time to close shop and see what Mr. M. is doing.
It feels great when you get on an art roll doesn't it? I can't wait to see the spirit dolls you use those pieces with. And no root beer for me though. Have a great T day and Thanksgiving too Nicole. hugs-Erika
Oh, that lemon curd thing looks yummy. We love lemon anything here. Your art pieces are pretty and fun. Have fun making creepy things. LOL Happy T Day!
...we have turkey at Thanksgiving and lasagna for Christmas.
Once again, I’m impressed by your creativity. I do like your works, and you seem to have many ideas and projects in mind.
your lemon curd sounds delicious, look forward to seeing spirit dolls-husbands are the best aren't they? hugs Happy T
Your hubby is awesome :-)
Looking forward to see the outcome!
I still have to cook some recipes with Gennaro Contaldi´s "Limoni". Such a sweet book.
Have a happy T-Day!
These tiny bits of art are gorgeous! Lemon tard is my favorite around the town here. That pic just looks so tantalising making me hungry!
Nice work and yum on those lemon curd cookies!
I love the shimmer you get with the mica paints!
The lemon coopkies look soooo good!
No plans here at all. Just me and Allie cat for TG. :)
Your little clay pieces look beautiful. Surprisingly the iridescence shows very well in your photo.
I am with you on the deliciousness of lemons, and also love anything with that flavor. When I have a lemon slice as a garnish I always eat it, sometimes even including the skin.

Never heard of lemon shortbread cookies, Nicole! Looking forward to reading its recipe. I'm also curious to see the spirit dolls.
Wonderful art pieces from clay, Nicole. I'm waiting for the second step of them...
Have a nice day!
I recognized those pieces as having irridescence. While it usually doesn't show in photos, I have seen enough of mine in photos to recognize it.
I havent' seen that zero sugar AW Root Beer. I might like some of that.
You have a wonderful hubby, enjoy working with your new toy. I love everything lemon, too, yummy. Happyy T Day, hugs, Valerie
I looked up manacati but drew a blank. Do you mean manicotti (which is a pasta dish). That sounds nice. I have never made it, even though I have lived in Italy for many years...
Your 'pieces' look lovely. Yes, I can tell they are a bit iridescent.
How absolutely fab that Mr M bought you just what you needed (and wanted). He's a keeper!
Lemon curd... yumm! I was going to make a lemon drizzle cake this weekend but hubby wanted a vanilla sponge. Next time I will make something lemony as I have several lemons in the fridge.
You've been busy and productive. And whatta guy you have! That's just wonderful!
So sweet of your hubby to help fund your craft. Those clay pieces are shinning already, so pretty.
The lemon cookies with curd sounds delicious.
Happy Tea Day,
True love is Monster Liquid Latex, lol!
I've never made manicotti, but I do enjoy eating it. Maybe someday I'll be adventurous and make some. Your cookie with lemon curd looks tasty. Happy T Tuesday!
Nicole, you have a wonderful husband!
Your artwork looks amazing, and I'd love to see the spirit dolls that you're creating.
We don't do a turkey Thanksgiving either. This year it will just be my husband and I - we decided to have a low key day, maybe go to the coast during the day, have chicken for dinner and then hang back and watch German crime shows.
Happy Thanksgiving, Nicole!
Well you know we share a love of Zero Sugar Rootbeer! lol Isn't it wonderful when our hubby's know just what we like even if noone else understands..lol Hugs! deb
My sincere apology for taking so long to visit. I finally realized I HAD to drag myself out of bed and see what you had offered for T this week. I'm definitely not a very good host, but I want you to know I greatly appreciate your visit and for linking this week. I wish my cats were as savvy as your husband. He's a keeper. Happy T Tuesday and happy Thanksgiving, dear Nicole,
As a guy, I am quite willing to bask in the vicarious glory of your husband's actions. How wonderful we are!!
Your Thanksgiving dinner sounds good! That lemon curd-yum!
The clay is looking so pretty- looking forward to seeing the next step. Mmmmm!Lemon curd, lemon shortbread, lemon cake, lemonade all totally wonderful! A big hurray for hubbies who know just what we need. Happy Thanksgiving and belated Happy T Day, Chrisx
Your clay art looks wonderful Nicole, and I love anything lemon :-)
A happy thanksgiving to you!
Still looking after sick kitties, so I'm very late to the party. Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xx
Terry and I had a quiet Thanksgiving at home. I ordered in a prepared dinner, because making something from scratch with my broken foot and rib was too much, as was the thought of going out. The dinner was really good. Mr. M. is a sweetheart!
