More About Lizzie and Wally

OK, my posts have been pretty much only about Lizzie and Wally lately, and I have another to show you today.
I am linking these up to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting.
I am also linking up to Art Journal Journey. Thanks to Valerie and Susi for hosting.
So here's the story so far- my quick synopsis for those of you who aren't familiar with it.
Wally and Lizzie are a couple, but then Wally decides to go on a world-wide painting journey while Lizzie decides to stay behind. Anyhow, after time passes Lizzie decides to go find  Wally, and when she doesn't find him, she  starts traveling herself. So this page is Lizzie's mailbox at home with all of the letter's from Wally she hasn't received.
This has been a pretty quiet week for me. I met with a few friends, went out to dinner with my husband, and did a bit if baking. Not that I needed the calories, but I needed to bring dessert to a friend's for dinner and that inspired me to make something yummy.
These are eclairs filled with raspberry mousse. 
My friend is lucky enough to have this little cabin on a nearby lake. Before we ate those eclairs we sat on the dock and soaked our feet in the water while we sipped our glasses of wine. I would have loved to go swimming but it was just too chilly. But it was a wonderful way to spend a summer evening.
Not much else new with me.  Anything wildly exciting new with you?
Thanks for visiting and stopping by the blog.

Sorry Lizzie and Wally are at such cross-purposes. Hope they have a happy ending. Your pastries look yummy. Great photo of the lakeside. I have always found MA and NH waters cold no matter what the season.

Hi Erika,
For some reason you seem "sad" today. Is it because you can't find Wally? :>)
You are quite a pastry chef, and a wonderful photo and journal page. Thank you for stopping by my blog and especially for correcting my spelling! I knew something was wrong as I typed it but didn't take the time to think and correct it!
