Good morning Dzintra! My best friend from high school is of Peruvian descent and I remember so many of the cultural/artistic pieces in her home. SO COLORFUL! You know, right about NOW, I would enjoy a trip down south to a warmer climate,and your post is making me think of such a place like Peru with verdant landscape and kind people! You dear one, are a lovely friend, and thank you for making the effort to come visit me! Visiting blogs on a tablet (I have the Samsung) is not always easy! So I thank you.

Have a GREAT DAY!

What beautiful gifts, dear Dzintra...stunning colors! How sweet of James to bring these goodies....
What was his experience like in Peru? How exciting it must have been!
Some very mystical places in that country...
I bet you're glad he's home, though!

Thank you, dear friend, for visiting the cook up!
Oh, those little frittatas were WAY to easy to eat...
And the lemon curd really elevated that bread pudding. Let me know if you try it with some GF bread....

I haven't really been watching the Olympics either...only DVR it for figure skating... :)

A beautiful Valentine's Day to you, my friend!
May the day be full of love and wonder for you and your family...
Sending LOVE to you!
xoxoxo,

Gorgeous gifts from Peru! I have similar rug from Tunisia and I use it for everything too. Put it in the car and you can use it for picnic rug, to keep you warm in the back seat etc.. Have a good day girl - Hugs Nat
