After a weekend that was perfect weather-wise, we have started the week with a grey Monday - perhaps a chance to catch up on the dreaded Housew***!!
I was out and about all weekend, walked 45000 steps in 2 days, saw lots of nature's beauty everywhere and really enjoyed myself!
Today I have a new tag for Wendy's challenge at Tag Tuesday
You still have a week to join in with some fruity apples and pears. My first tag using the new stamps is here.
I used my newly carved stamps again. I stamped the apple three times using distress oxides in candied apple, salty ocean and seedless preserves. After I had cut them out I wanted to place them with foam dots on the background, a strip of yellow wallpaper from a huge book that a friend gifted me, along with 2 others - a wonderful paper treasure! The paper was matted with black and sewed together. Then I couldn't find the red apple. I searched everywhere for it, but had to stamp and cut a new one. I found it hours later, on the coffee-maker!
And you can still have time to join my giveaway here, it will close on Tuesday at 22:00 MET
Today is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday link party, so here a warm welcome to all of the lovely ladies of the T gang. Here are some of my drink and food related photos from this week:

On Sunday I visited Nelya and she cooked us a wonderful meal - ground lamb with mushrooms and noodles:
Coffee in my fave mug and a Russian praline - which was very delicious:
It has a picture of Putin on it:
I hope I never get offered Trump chocolate or Boris Johnson candies - I could make a long list of other politicians, too:
Although I bribed the rooster with bread it wouldn't turn round for me:
Scenes along the way:
Loved these family scenes:
A notice to say that the farmer has left a strip of land uncultivated for wild flowers and pollinators - great idea:
The logs are left in the castle grounds to naturally decay to make homes for the insects:
The lion at the castle was enjoying the sun:

And the castle ghost was back again:
Saturday's spooky moon:
Have a great day, take care,
