T sTands for Tag Tuesday on Monday

Hi Everybody! 

Hope you all had a great weekend! I was able to have a nice walk with a friend on Sunday, and it was good to be out and about again.

This evening we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday. This time I am hosting, and the theme is ANYTHING GOES. Tags of all formats are very welcome, and as always you have 2 weeks to link to us. One of the tags on the blog is a coffee themed one, so I'm sharing it here, as from this evening we also celebrate Elizabeth's T sTands or Tuesday link party. And here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Gang who visit here:

On Sunday afternoon a friend came and we went for a walk through the fields:

We enjoyed watching the horses at the stables:

This one came towards us with his human, and allowed us to pet him:

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

Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

Thanks to all for the encouraging comments to get enough rest and heal out completely, much appreciated. And I bought a big jar of honey to do myself some good, as Pinky recommended!

I have another recycled piece for Chris' and Erika's challenge, inspired by, at AJJ, where they took over the theme as Eileen is sadly no longer with us. Elizabeth is recycling this month, so she inspired this. I cleared out the art tote I used at the clinic, and found these strips of paper, the 2 pieces of thread and the 2 feathers when I tipped everything out. I wove them together to make this A4 piece on black cardstock. I also found  a shabby looking piece of chocolate and a rather crushed Crispbread  which I decided not to recycle:

Today I had to go to my doctor, so I enjoyed a walk in the sunshine, and came back through the fields and then along the stream to the street where I live. It is still very cold, but the sun makes it bearable, and it was good to be out for half an hour. I took some photos with my cell-phone. The doctor's office is just a few steps from the Rhine:

A shoe tree?

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

Hi Everybody! 

Today I am sharing a piece made for AJJ, where Chris and Erika are hosting with the theme of 'inspired by', chosen by Eileen, who is sadly no longer with us.
I was inspired by bright colours, and I recycled parts of 2 different journal pages and a face from my sketchbook and put them together to make a new and colourful piece. It also fits to Elizabeth's theme of recycling. I used a ready made background and pepped it up with lots of splatters. Then I added the face, which was digitally cut out from the page and placed in the floral ring. The blackbird is one of my balcony friends. I am also linking to Paint Party Friday.

I am still really exhausted, and need to stay home and rest, so I have some photos from this day 2 years ago:

Strange flowers:

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