Halloween Lunch Pictures and Some Art

Happy T-day!

Our favorite local restaurant is Fox's Pizza Den where they have great pizza, sandwiches, pasta and salads. They also have a Bourbon Bar.  Prices range from $7 to almost $1,000 on the bourbon and bourbon drinks.  

Each holiday, the bourbon bar comes up with fun holiday themed drinks and they decorate the bar too.  A few weeks ago, we headed there for lunch and to try one of the new drinks.  Here is the holiday drink menu and my tickets to T-day over at Elizabeth's Blog where we share our fun drink related items from the week. 

Of course, my daughter loves vampire books and movies so she picked the blood bag.
I go more for taste so I got the Meet Your Maker - it was wonderful.  
We shared a pizza and a salad.  I forgot to take a picture of the pizza, but I did get one of the salad. It had grilled chicken and potato wedges - super fun.  They make their ranch dressing on site and it is wonderful.  My husband has been known to drink it so it could actually be my ticket to T-day - lol. 
Here is a picture of one of their fun decorations (a body bag on the antlers).
Here is a picture of one of the alcohol walls (they have 2 and also a large bourbon safe as well).  You can see the bartender getting something for one of the patrons. There are little skulls hanging from the ladder too. 
It was a fun outing.  I may go back in a few weeks for my birthday - before they take down the Halloween items and stop playing all the fun Halloween songs. 

I also have some art to share.  This first one was done for last week's watercolor challenge at  The technique was to make birch trees using a credit card and some liquid watercolor paint. 
This next one is a case of THIS fab card done by Micheline Jourdain.  I added extra images, different trees, a different sentiment, some Stickles, and I drew my horizon and road. 

Hope your week is going well and hope you can join in the T-day fun with the gang at Elizabeth's. 




  1. Your photos are fun to see, even if I can’t taste the food and drinks. Looks like a neat place.
    best, mae at

  2. What a fun place. I thought Blood Bag was just the name of the drink and not the vessel it was served in! Too funny! The body bag on the antlers was funny, too. Happy T Day

  3. Wow this does look like a great place. Have a nice day today.

  4. Hi Nancy! I would have chosen the Meet your maker one, too. The blood bag looks a bit horrible! And your food looks great - what a lovely place for a nice evening. And your cards are beautiful, as always. Hugs, Valerie

  5. Now how fun are these yummy drinks and treats!! I would want to try out both as they both look yummy! Your watercolor card is stunning and I love the winter scene you've created on the bottom one too! Such a fun post today Nancy!! Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead!

  6. How cooll is the blood bag!!!
    Wow, sad beaming is not invented, I´d LOVE to visit (and now I crave pizza).
    Very beautiful art.
    Have a happy T-Day, hugz

  7. Hi Nancy, I was trying to choose which one I would have from the menu but then I saw the actual blood bag and yes it would have to be that one! That would be a fun place to visit, hope you can get back there for your birthday while all the Halloween decor is still up. $1000 bourbon really? wow! Love your wintery watercolour cards, they look fab. Happy T Day! Elle xx

  8. oooo, I wanna go there for the themed drinks. Fun :) and the pizza looks tasty. Happy T Tuesday!

  9. Spooky fun! Love the salad and the bar decor.

  10. OMGoodness. That blood bag looked realistic. What a fun place to share time with family. Lovely photos of the drinks, too, Nancy. Thanks for taking us with you on this fun trip for T this Tuesday.

    Both cards are awesome. That first one is remarkable how you made the trees.

  11. Those drinks have the best names. It is so fun that the blood bag even comes in a bag. How fun is that. And your food looks yummy. Your cards are beautiful. I really like the trees in the snow. I hope you had a wonderful T day, and maybe you'll get to try another one of those fun drinks before Halloween. If you, please share. hugs-Erika

  12. Your christmas cards are very sweet. The bar is impressive - but a Bourbon drink for almost $1,000? That's a bit much, but the prices on that drink menu are good. I would have chosen the Blood Bag or Meet you Maker as well - that last one actually looks really good. Happy T day!

  13. Your birch tree card is gorgeous! It looks like the real thing.
    Halloween always brings out some interesting decor. I don't celebrate it myself but those that get into it, really get into it. I am not sure I could bring myself to drink out of a blood bag. haha. Looks like you had a fun outing with your family.
    Happy Tea Day,

  14. The food and drink look amazing so much fun.
    I love both cards but have to say your birch trees are amazing ♥

  15. Your Halloween lunch and art pictures are so cool! Looks like you had a lot of fun. The spooky decorations are awesome. Thanks for sharing your creativity! Happy Belated T Tuesday!

  16. Oops, dear Deb, I don't think I want to spend $1,000 on bourbon... That would be the biggest scare for me, much bigger than anything scary Halloweeny ;-) But with a Meet your Maker for $9 I could be there, sounds like good ingredients and looks great. By the way, the Bloodbag that your beautiful daughter drinks is very funny.
    The art you show is also very beautiful - I am particularly impressed by the credit card birch trees :-D
    All the best and cozy autumn days, Traude

Forest Goodies and Other Projects

 Hello Crafty Friends. I just got the Stamperia Forest Paper and Die Cuts in the mail so I had to play with them right away.   I have a combo creation - journal page and card.  On the journal page I used my 6x6 Dina Wakley Journal and laid a base of gesso.  I then used Dina's pastel crayons and some SU! inks and stamps.  Also added in some TH Dress Ink in Vintage Photo since I don't know how to make anything without it  (seriously).   The eagle is a Stamperia Forest die cut and is coated with gesso.  Did a bit of stenciling and distressing to finish the page off.  I am linking this the the **Art*Journal*Journey* September Texture Theme (last day - can't wait to see what October's Theme will be).  The die cut and the little smears add texture to the already very textured page.   I love the blue and green together and was inspired to made a quick card for my Son-in-law who cut down some tree limbs for us the other day.  The paper in the middle is from the Stamperia Forest

A Martini, Peanut Butter Cupakes, and Art

Hello Friends. Today, I have an ecletic mix of drinks, dessert, and art. First, it's T-day somewhere in the world so time for a drink post which I am linking to Elizabeth's Blog - Altered Book Lover.  Last week we had a work related dinner.  When the waitress asked what I wanted to drink, I had a sudden craving for a martini.  I use to love them, but I guess my tastes have changed because I wasn't a fan.  I was a fan of the chips and dips though! And the day before, I brought my Sister's fabulous peanut butter cupcakes.  Mainly because I was craving them and couldn't ask her to make just one..... Over at **Art*Journal*Journey* Elle picked a theme of Books, Cats, and Tea (you can pick one, two or three of the items).  I did a Bible Journal Page in my Journaling Bible - Luke 13:24-25.  After a layer of Gesso, I took a Sharpie pen and drew the kitty, then the narrow door, and then colored the door with Arteza Brush pens. The verse was written with a Micron pen.  This

Milkshake Malt Porter and a Bit of Art

 Hello friends and Happy T-day. It has been hit or miss with me lately on T-day posts. The remodel of our house next door has taken our mental and physical energy.  I think a few more weeks and things will be on the contractor instead of us.  Hopefully I will be back to normal by then. My Oldest Darling Daughter asked if we wanted to come for dinner Saturday.  Translation:  go to the store with me and we will bring part of dinner to your house and you cook the rest.  While at the store, I saw one 6 pack of this fun milkshake porter so, of course, I bought it.  It smells wonderful (a hint of chocolate and a hit of malt) and has a light creamy taste.  I would definitely buy it again if I see it.  My son-in-law did not like it, but he is more a  Miller Lite fan.  Now if this had been a whiskey, he would have been all over it.  LOL.  Linking this to Elizabeth's blog for the T-party gang. Darling Daughter had tried her hand at dried pintos, and she rocked them (I will begging for a rep
