T stands for Tag Tuesday and more

Hi Everybody!

Hope your weekend was good - have a great week, too. I had a very good weekend. The weather was good, except for a few thunder storms and some heavy rain, but I managed to dodge the rain and still spent a lot of time outside walking and having fun. I didn't manage any housework, but I did cook a very tasty veggie stir-fry so didn't go hungry.

On Tuesday we are beginning a new challenge at Tag Tuesday - gardening, chosen by Joan. She has made 2 lovely tags to inspire you on our blog, and this hybrid tag is from me. I used photos, painted elements, and some floral images from Mischief Circus and Serif on a collaged background:



Tuesday is also time for Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday link party, so here a hearty welcome to all of the wonderful ladies who join in. I enjoyed my coffee one day in the Altstadt of Düsseldorf:


It's on the street where the famous Uerige Brewery and lots of eateries are situated:



There is a Lindt chocolate shop opposite, but I didn't go too near, just in case!


I love the drunken reveller weather-vane at the Uerige:





I took photos of some of the older and newer buildings:





Then I walked through the quiet park of the old Standes Haus (County Parliament), which is now the K21 Art Museum:









Loved this roof garden on top of a house near the bridge:



Then I walked through Carl Platz Market:






But I'm always happy to get back to my peaceful world here:



I'll be back with some more 42s soon!

Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

Happy Weekend

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - enjoy! My week has been good on the whole, with lots of walks and mostly passable weather. Hope you had a great week, too.

Today I have one more tag to share for Wendy's theme 'Sea World' at Tag Tuesday. The quote is from Shakespeare's 'Tempest'. I combined elements 
from Serif and me:



This is an A3 mixed media collage using photos and magazine cut-outs on a painted and with scraps collaged background:








I am linking to Paint Party Friday

I have some photos from our walks from the past week. These were taken at a medieval castle in Ratingen:














The old brewery in Niederkassel:


A wonderful idea for a fence, here in front of a school:



That's all for today. Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
