T on Tuesday

I am joining Elizabeth for T on Tuesday this morning....
I have neglected this poor blog since before Christmas... bad bad blogger indeed!  I am feeling a lot better this morning and am showing my green smoothie breakfast drink... spinach, celery, parsley, banana, mango and pineapple and I know they look weird but they actually taste really nice and the bonus is that I get my five fruit and veg in one hit and everything else I eat during the day is a bonus! LOL
This is what is outside my scraproom window this morning... yep, pretty nippy out there... it was -3 when I got up but I think it has freezing now.
The only crafty stuff I have done lately is to make a quilt and a taggy for my son's University friends who are waiting on the arrival of their first baby as I type...  have no idea about their nursery colour scheme so hope they like owls....
yeah, not sure about the taggy... I was going to add some eyes and a nose and then decided against it as I sort of envisioned it turning into something that give bubba nightmares... so I have left it blank... may just cut the head bit off and leave it as a plain blankie taggy... what do you think?


  1. That smoothie sounds SO good. I could drink them morning, noon, and night.

    What a lucky baby. You are SO talented. Thanks for sharing this blanket, tag, and smoothie with us for T this Tuesday. It was SO good to see you joining us for T this week. I was over the moon thrilled!

  2. I think I'd like that smoothie too. I keep thinking about getting a good blender to make them. LOVE that adorable quilt-that owl fabric is so cute! Happy T day-good to see you back again.

  3. Thank you Annette. I totally understand what you mean; I so wish your mojo returns soon.
    Have you heard of Tammy Garcia of Daisy Yellow Art?
    Her blog is FULL of prompts and ideas that may help you.
    Your quilt is perfect for a baby and the blankie taggy is fine as is imo. Baby may use the head part to hold it by, or use that end to bite with sore gums. My youngest grandson has one. ((hugs))

  4. PS - I would love to have smoothies like that every day :D

  5. Glad your bang with the tea gang again! Your smoothie sounds like something I might drink in the summer, when it is boiling hot out.

    Your owl is beyond cute, the baby will love al the bright colors, and if the baby doesn't have them send it to me....grin

    Happy T-day

  6. I love the vivid color of your smoothie--and might even try drinking it. The quilt is so colorful--who can't love an owl! Happy T Day!

  7. Nice to see you again...
    time has a way of passing so quickly it seems.
    Your drink looks and sounds really yummy to me.
    The quilt you made is wonderful and such a precious gift to give!
    Happy T Day

  8. OmGosh who doesn't love owls?! Seriously! And those bright colors are perfect for baby. Good to see you! Happy Tday! Hugs!deb

  9. Love that bright coloured drink! The quilt looks fabulous! Happy T day! Chrisx

  10. I don't know what a taggy is, so I'm no help. All this 21st century baby stuff is new to me--LOL! The owls are cute, though and we are warmer than you right now. I have never had one of those green smoothie/juice drinks, but they do look tempting to try. Happy T-Day! :)

  11. That is one bright smoothie - the contents sound very tasty.
    The quilt is adorable Annette.

  13. oh, love your colorful quilt dear...the proud parents will be pleased to receive it! stay warm!

  14. I just got back into the habit of Green Smoothies for breakfast too. That is an adorable baby gift!!

  15. Yum! that smoothie looks so good!! Very nice quilt. Owls are so "big" right now. :)
    Happy T day!
