Zentangle Diva challenge 233 Zenith

[Zentangle? Who? What? Find out here.] This week, the Zentangle Diva, Laura Harms, is back from her summer hiatus. Her challenge was for us to use the Mother Ship’s new “official” tangle, Zenith.

Interior Los Amigos Restaurant, Atlantic City, New Jersey

Once the summer muggies descend on our hometown, Philadelphia, we head “down the shore” to the house we bought in Brigantine, on the first barrier island north of Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Zentangle Diva Challenge 231

This week the Zentangle Diva’s challenge is by Sharla Hicks, CZT, a summer guest diva. Sharla challenged us to use undulating tangles, explaining that she finds tangles composed of undulating “C” and “S” curves to be calming.

An Introduction to the Wine Regions of Spain

main cathedral in Salamanca, Spain.

I admit that on my last trip to Spain, I pretty much just drank sangria (and ate ice cream) which means other than the fact that it was red, I had no idea what wine I was drinking. On my next trip to Spain, I hope to be a little more sophisticated, so I’ve done some […]

When I visited Salou, a sea side resort town on the Costa Daurada (Costa Dorada in Spanish; Gold Coast) in the Catalunya (Catalonia) region of Spain, it was all about ice cream. (Yes! High five AND a fist bump). Confession: […]

Macedonian Grill, Brigantine, New Jersey

Brigantine, New Jersey is the barrier beach town to which we escape as much as possible from May through September. In other words, we’re shoobies. On a recent Friday afternoon, we drove the 80 minutes from Center City Philadelphia to our refuge from the big city. A quick scan of the contents of our Brigantine […]
