Hi everyone. It's Tuesday and T Day. And to all my blog friends and visitors who live in the US, Happy Independence Day as its also a big summer holiday here. We're in for some beautiful weather here in New Hampshire, and even better, its time for a cookout and some swimming up at my mother-in-laws. This is a bigger holiday in my husband's family than Christmas I think.
I made this page in my calendar journal. The stripes at the top of the page are really dark blue, although they look black here. I had the USA and patriotic flag stickers, and I added in this cute little TH cut out girl. Fourth of July is a great summer holiday tradition in my life so I am joining up at Art Journal Journey as the latest theme is Summertime Love. Elizabeth is our hostess this month and I think she's pick a great theme.
And happy T day everyone. Time for a little vacation indulgence.
Back at the end of June my husband, daughter and myself went to Downeast Maine, way up on the Canadian border. We stayed in Eastport, which is a small city on an island called Moose Island. There is a causeway with a road onto the island, so you don't need to take a ferry to get there.
One day we walked around Eastport and checked out the shops and city itself. We discovered this bakery there.
They had 2 cases of yummy looking goodies. It was so hard to pick.
These cream puffs were calling to me though.
Even though it probably had a million calories. Good thing we were going for a hike that afternoon.
The diet coke that is my drink was left over from my lunch, so I figured I would just sip on that, although I must say water would have tasted better.
So my cream puff was a killer with pastry cream and real whipped cream inside. the chocolate sauce on it was rich and pure heaven.
My husband and daughter each had an eclair, and in reality, we could have just split the cream puff. But we were on vacation and up for a little indulgence.
Stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog to see what the T Gang has been up to.
Hope its a wonderful day everyone and thanks for stopping by!
