Father's Day

Hi!  Thanks for stopping by today. We had a wonderful day Sunday, just enjoying being together as a family.  We had my hubby's favorite meals, which I don't cook often. Stuffed Grape Leaves, Cucumber Yogurt Salad, and for dessert, a Semolina Cake with almonds called Harissa.  It is not a quickly prepared meal, but it is delicious.

 Hope you had a chance this weekend to join us on the amazing VC Rocks! Blog Hop.  I shared the card I made for my hubby in the hop, today I want to share a funny little
gift I made for him.  He has a mustache, has ALWAYS had a mustache, probably born with it. I've never
seen him without it. Not sure I'd recognize him, lol.

It's a candy bar wrapper.  Chocolate with Almonds, his favorite.  I wanted to put a tie on it, but he hates ties.  The only one he will wear without fussing, if he can get away with it, is a bolo tie and so I used some Hemp Twine and some retired Hardware to kinda sorta make one.  I thing I should have stuck with a regular or bow tie, but it just
wouldn't have been him. The mustache was freehand.  I used the sentiment YOU ROCK (my world) that was laying on my desk  from the VC blue butted monkeys, lol.  The set it is from is eluding my brain at the moment.  Typical....

Anyhoo, that's my little share for today.  Hope you enjoyed it.  Have a great day!
