lunch, inchies, and a kitty

A new catering place has opened next to our
shop, and the DH suggested we try them today.

I'm glad he did, because it was delicious. This
was my roasted chicken chiabotto sammy, with a
huge helping of crispy, warm, seasoned chips.

Why did I post my lunch? I dunno. It's cold
here, and my brain won't work properly until the
spring thaw . . . and I like food! It had
spinach and goat cheese, too, in case you were

Here are some inchies for a swap. At least, I
think I'm in the swap. Maybe they aren't going
to let me play--they haven't e-mailed. Anyway,
the images are mainly from Altered Pages, and
the moon faced stamp is from Inka Stamps.
The kissy lips are from a thrift store, but aren't
they fun? (Inchies are 1 inch by 1 inch. TINY!)

Finally, I am very happy to show off a lovely
little painting by Marie, which arrived this
last week, and is currently residing on the
mantle (next to a painting by Tipper)--
it's actually the painting, not a print, as the
picture/poster may suggest--

Black CAT Painting by Marie Anakee for One World One Heart

It's a tiny thing--about 4 x 4--and suits me to
a T, with the kitty, and the drying roses and
lavender. Although, honestly, my lavender has
NOT done well enough for me to have big bunches
of it to dry. Maybe this will be the year!

Hi Trisha,
Wow I love your Inchies they are so amazing and to think they are so tiny. I have never made one but I do charms that small so I think I could pull it off, maybe I just might give them a whirl. You have inspired me to try something new. I'm very happy I popped in to your blog I will be back.
Take care Hugs Deborah

The sammy looks delicious. I love spinach and goat cheese. Your inchies are just beautiful!

I have absolutely nothing of value or humor to say at this time. My brain is mush from catching up on homeschool records and planning for ACT testing and searching for scholarships. Mush I tell you.

Hope all is well with you.

I want to EAT YOUR LUNCH. Boy that looks good.
If you are not in the inchies swap, start one yourself and a bunch of us will get in it with you, although I've never made one in my life.
What shop do you have. I just stopped being a gift shop owner, concentrating more on my wholesale side.
Please, at least send me your pickle!

trisha too said...

no bag yet, Christina--but I'm waiting by the mailbox!! :)

Pam. Never try to take my pickle again. It could get ugly.

shop = sports cards, memorabilia, vintage toys. yes, we're grown-ups, yes we've done this all our adult lives, and yes (with thanks to God!) it does pay the bills!

The inchies are so cute! Great words. I think you should mat those inchies, frame them and put them on the wall!

That sandwich looks beautiful! It's a great thing to post! :)

Your inchies are truly tiny pieces of art!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. And what's a typo between bloggers. I know my stuff is peppered with them.

I am thoroughly enjoying your music mix. I would've never expected to hear Handel's Messiah, Patsy Cline, Doc Watson, The Eurythmics, Elvis Costello all in one sitting. I got up to #46 last night before my computer locked up.

You are quite the craftsperson when it comes to your ATC's. I like your collages, as well.
