Happy Tuesday Friends!

Well after last week’s long and exciting post, here’s one that is short and sweet and probably a bit boring.

Today’s Art . . .

Today’s art is this Year of the Rabbit stamp sheet.  The Royal Mail have produced one of these A4 Collector Sheets every year for the last 12 years, this one is the final installment in the ‘Lunar New Year’ Collector Sheet series.  This Collector Sheet celebrates the Year of the Rabbit which runs from 22 January 2023 to 9 February 2024.  The labels feature paper cut-outs both on the bright red background of the sheet and the labels representing the five elements of metal, water, wood, fire and earth.  All the labels are complemented by the Fireworks definitive-sized stamp, so 20 labels and 20 stamps.


Currently Reading . . .

I’m currently reading this book by Nick Louth.  It’s book three in the DCI Craig Gillard series.  The books are set mostly in and around Surrey in England.


TOTAL for 2023
12 books

T Stands for Green Juice . . .

Oops forgot to say what the juice is – this one’s celery, cucumber, kale, apple, ginger and lemon.  I’m having two of these each day at the moment, trying to be healthier this year, so I dusted off the juicer and starting juicing!  It’s quite the challenge though to drink cold juices in this freezing cold house, but I’m managing to stick with it so far.

Let me know what you think in the comments.   As always, thanks for reading and Happy T Day!

I haven’t seen these stamps- our local said there weren’t any!!! They are very well presented aren’t they? I’m all for health drinks but at the mention of kale…..…I’m out! 🙂 Belated Happy T Day, hugs, Chrisx

Those stamps are absolutely stunning! I want some!! I wish our country made a set of commemorative stamps like these. Thanks for sharing.
Your green juice sounds delicious and healthy, definitely something I would like.
To answer your question from last week about my daughter’s age, she is 6.
And about the Domestika classes, I bought 6. The ones I bought were
1. Architectural drawing with watercolor and ink
2. The Art of Sketching: Transform Your Sketches into Art
3. Artistic sketching in watercolor: dare to express your ideas
4. Sketchbook to explore your drawing style
5. Botanical sketchbook: a meditative approach
6.Portrait Sketchbook: Explore the Human Face
I haven’t completed any yet but I will let you know how I like them.
Happy Tea Day,

Not boring at all!!!
I hope karma treats me well. I ate rabbit, but also did stop the car to not kill a wild one (after checking no one is behind me).

Oh, would you mind sharing the recipe for the juice? xx

I will NOT be late this week, Elle. I may not be exactly on time, but I am NOT late. I love those stamps. I love how each of the bunnies has its own element. Never heard of that author, but it sounds interesting. I love mysteries.

Your smoothie sounds good. You can leave the kale out of mine, though. If you don’t get kale young, it gets bitter unless you bake it into kale chips.

Thanks for sharing those great stamps, your book, and your smoothie with us for T this Tuesday, dear Elle.

Fabulous looking stamps. On the bright side of drinking cold juice, your body will burn more calories. Happy T Day

What cool rabbit images! I drink water (and a morning coffee) and am not a fan of the various veggie juices. I hear they’re good for you, though… Happy T Tuesday!

Those stamps are wonderful! I guess the last with the portrait of the Queen.
