Today I realised that I need to post the black and white pages I made, as the challenge at Moo Mania and More ends today - time flies by and I can't believe we will be starting a new challenge again tomorrow.
I am also linking to Art Journal Journey, through my window, as the zebra is looking through the window of his house at the zoo, watching all the strange people who pass by.
Here I reversed the colours:
Today is Elizabeth's and Bleubeard's 'T stands for Tuesday'
so I want to greet all of the gang.
I am showing you a cherry cake I made some time back when I had visitors. There's a layer of short-crust pastry, then one of cheesecake, and on top of that the dark cherries. When the cake was nearly finished I took it out of the oven and added a glaze made of cream mixed with some melted butter, brown sugar and almonds and let it bake for another 20 minutes. It was delightfully sticky and buttery and tasted of caramel and cherries and cream cheese, yummy. I was rather disappointed that my visitors ate it all, so I had none left over for the day after. But it was really good, and I did not put any calories in it. If you are looking for calories you should know that they are mostly to be found in closets, where they hide and make your clothes smaller each night.
Next week I will make another cake specially for you.
And my drink is once again cappuccino, which is my nectar and medicine:
At Tag Tuesday our theme this week is 'I remember when...'.
The text is on the back and reads: I remember when I thought lavender and purple were colours for old ladies. Now, 50 years later, I like these colours....'
When I was at Schloss Kalkum I was very sad to see how run down and dilapidated the castle looks. They are starting to do some repairs, so I hope it will soon look better. Paint is flaking off everywhere:
Looks like the dungeon window:
And even shabby shutters and windows look better with reflections in the moat:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
