A tasty treat from Greece!

Have I ever mention that my favourite holidays are spending time on Greek islands? Probably not yet;) Being from Poland means mostly cheaper hotels ;) which is not bad because they are often leaded by a few-generation-family and watching their relationships is one of the most interesting things for me.;) Me and my travel's mate just love to walk around, visit every museum, church, shop, go by car, boat, bus wherever we can and of course take millions of photographs. I love the sun light, the colour of the sky, of the sea, the smell of thyme, or the smell of grill around the taverns or even the sounds of scooters;) And of course I love the food! I am absolutely happy when I have tzatziki, Greek salad, saganaki, souvlaki, cafe frappe and fresh orange juice on the table in front of me!:D There is something on these islands that makes me feel relaxed, no one is in a hurry, slowly doing their things, no rush. I also think I was lucky because I really have no even one bad experience there so far.:)

So what made me to write about this? A gift from very talented Anthoula! Some time ago I sent some bits and pieces I thought they might be useful for her beautifull food miniatures and a couple days ago I got this great tray full of goodies!

I love the transparency of the onion's half dials!:)

And this piece of lemon is so ... sweet!:D

Thank you so much Ahthoula for thinking of me!! I am so happy to have your great minis! I am sure I will order some Greek food from you soon.:D Thank you for your generostity!!

Jakis czas temu wysłałam parę drobiazgów do Anthouli, mając nadzieję, że będzie mogła je wykorzystać przy tworzeniu swoich miniatur żywniosciowych. Dwa dni temu dostałam w podziękowaniu tę tacę z wiktułałami:D Bardzo podoba mi się przezroczystosć tych talarków cebuli i ta cytrynka pływająca w herbatce!:D

What an amazing and generous gift from Anthoula (and yes, she's very talented indeed)!! Ooooh how I would love to visit Greece someday. And Poland come to think of it. In fact, I'd pretty much love to visit anywhere in the world that isn't part of my country, lol.

Thank you Ladies! Again all these kind words are for the one who made the gift, not for me.;)
