Tuesday Tea and Techo

Showing some drawings in my 
Hobonichi Techo (planner) again.
Featuring some drawings of lamps,
because it's dark and rainy here in
Ohio today!  

The March Hobonichi Challenge was
 "Around the House."  Above, I've drawn our 
refrigerator which is covered with lots 
of photos, notes, and drawings by
 grandchildren, as I suspect
may be the case in other homes also.
By necessity it's simplified, as the 
drawing is about 1 1/2 inches high.

Our family enjoyed a very nice Easter
gathering and feast at my parents'
home. Always thankful when family
gets together. Loved the label from the
fresh pineapple that I bought for my
Easter fruit bowl! Maybe it's a bit 
weird to have Avengers on the page 
for Easter, but no stranger than Snow
on Easter!  Mother Nature had to 
'spring' an April Fool joke on us
I guess...

I hope you will visit my other blog,
to follow along in April for my
Fake Journal this year!

Linking up for T Tuesday over at
Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog.
Stop by for a great tutorial about
rusting fabric!


  1. I always enjoy your journaling. I have a table lamp much like the one you show, but the glass shade broke and I can't find a replacement that fits. The floor lamp with the table attached would be handy I think, but I've never had one. Lamps are the perfect theme for these dreary, rainy days :) Happy T Tuesday

  2. Beautiful journaling pages. Your hand writing it spectacular! My boys would enjoy that pineapple label. They love The Avengers.
    Happy Tea Day,

  3. I always enjoy reading your wonderful journal. But what are girl scout cookies? I tried for ages to get a new glass shade for my lamp and eventually found one at a flea market for a few cents. Have a fun week and happy T day, hugs, Valerie

    1. Valerie~ Girl Scouts is a youth organization for girls (similar to Boy Scouts) and every year they sell cookies for a fund raiser. In the US the cookies are pretty legendary-quite yummy!

  4. Hi, I always love your drawings. we are quite cold here too in sw Missouri where it is usually nice and warm by now tonight again back in the 20s with very strong winds-no fun for sure.
    Happy T Day Kathy

  5. Wonderful pages and super sketches, I liked the daffodils and the fridge art. Its been snowing here in the UK [north] as well .
    Happy t day wishes.

  6. Such wonderful pages! I love the little bunny and your lily drawings 😁. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your Easter celebrations with your family despite the snow! We have warmer weather here so I'm hoping spring has sprung 😀. Wishing you a very Happy T Day! J 😊 x

  7. always a treat to see your planner pages filled with your busy life and fabulous drawings! We used to have a floor lamp like that:) Yes, we have the same weather as you- enough of the snow already! perhaps one of these days some spring flowers will show up...happy T day!

  8. Some days I want to throw my keyboard in the trash. I am so late visiting because it quit and took me forever to get it to work again. So, no, the keyboard isn't working properly.

    I am looking forward to guessing who you are during Fake Journal Month.

    When I redid my kitchen, I got rid of all the magnets, etc. on my fridge. Now I keep it clean and magnet free. Can't say the same for my metal cabinet in my craft room, though (grin).

    I'm thrilled you got the package. It was almost in time for NEXT Halloween (grin).

    Thanks for sharing your journal pages and coffee cup/mugs (and lovely lily, too) with us for T this Tuesday, dear friend.

  9. These are lots of fun. I stopped by and checked out your counterfeit journal too. You make the best little sketches (unlike my sad attempts of drawing that are really doodling). Hope you've been having a happy T day. hugs-Erika

  10. Love your drawings. Good for you doing Zumba. Mini-me and I did a class once. We both found out how uncoordinated we are. I laughed so hard I almost pee'd my pants. LOL
    Happy T day!

  11. Your journal and illustrations are so fun.I especially loved the little bug, bird, and frog. So cute.

  12. I finally made it all the way around the T party to the Sketch Lady! Please forgive my lateness.. its been a crazy ,crazy day... Its before midnight so maybe i'm only fashionably late and not unforgivably late.. lol Happy T day Dianne! Hugs! deb

  13. enjoyed it - as always!
    have a great week!

  14. Wonderful journal pages Dianne, I love your illustrations!
    Belated Happy T-Day,

  15. I do love seeing your pages- your lettering and illustrations really are brilliant! I must try to remember to look for new fake journal pages more regularly this year!Belated Happy T day Chrisx

  16. I'm always inspired by your journal pages, Dianne. I'm off to check out your fake journal. Your drawings are so clever and cute. I just love your style!

    I'm sorry to be late to T again. I'll catch up one of these days ;-)

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen
