Lazy Sunday






We've decided we are going to have a cooked Sunday lunch as often as we can. Dear Husband works every third weekend so 2 out of 3 won't be bad. Even though it's almost winter it's warm and sunny out in the garden most days so we will cook outdoors. We built a pizza oven in our backyard a while back and it still doesn't have a mosaicked bench top but it cooks beautifully. Yesterday we had a pizza lunch with some friends who came bearing gifts and 4 mosaic books in loan including Kaffe Fassetts' which should inspire me to get this project underway. My girlfriend knows I hate getting my fingers mucky so she offered to come and help me with this big project. Maybe I will be able to incorporate the old china I have been finding into this mosaic work? Sorry, I forgot to take photos of the pizzas and yummy salad we indulged in, it was delish. I think we will do a roast dinner for our next lazy Sunday lunch.

I love the photo of the outdoor mosaic - a lot of work, but such an awesome result!

i love the idea of a sunday lunch but for us it usually works better to have a saturday dinner. david does a mean roast chicken....mmmmm.
good luck with the mosaic - it looks like fun, but i'm not ready to take on board any other crafts - but one day.......

Your very own Pizza oven? I'll be sure to keep that a secret from my husband.... he would be wanting to build one if he heard that! [He could eat Pizza almost every day]

I do look forward to the project updates and pictures! I know it will be a work of art.
