Tuesday/Wednesday Post

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week got off to a good start.  

Today I have an A3 mixed media journal page to share for Wendy's vintage challenge at AJJ. The background was painted, textured an stenciled. I used a mixture of vintage and modern images:






This is the other half of the rose that I accidentally cut in half:



Blogger has once again changed the order of the photos, the evening sky pics should have been before these lovely images of the moon rising over the trees:






The lake:



Empty benches:


Neighbour's flowers again:





And this feather fluttered down onto the leaf as I went by:


The evening sky:








And some funny memes:



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

T sTands for This, That and the neighbour's caT

Hi Everybody!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend, and let's hope we all have a great. new week. Today we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday. Thanks to all who joined in the last challenge.  This time our lovely Sandie is hosting and has chosen the theme of book paper. The post on TT will go live this evening at 9 p.m. and then you can see the beautiful and inspirational tags that she has created.

I have made a tag which ties into to Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party, which also starts this evening, so here a warm welcome to all of the lovely ladies of the T Gang who visit here. I used a page from an old and tatty songbook that we used at school back in the 1950s and cut a coffee cup from it:



Some food and drink memes:




Coffee in a little café in a neighbouring town:


This plant is growing in a neighbour's garden. It seems to be exuding some sticky and sweet stuff, and bees and butterflies have been buzzing happily round it all week;




In town:


Kids being creative, always fun to see:



People having a picnic in the castle grounds:


More pics from the wildflower meadow:






And the neighbour's cat:


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

Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend, let's hope it will be a good one!

Today I am sharing a small tag made for my recycling challenge at Tag Tuesday. The citrasolv transfer on a scrap of printed paper was made long ago. I stamped round the edges and shaded them with Adirondack expresso ink before mounting it  onto two mats cut from leftovers:




Then I mounted it onto designer paper from LaBlanche, added a sentiment and some embellishments and sewed round the edges so it fits to Wendy's vintage challenge at AJJ:





So now back to our big hole:


For the past few days work has been started. A huge drill bored lots of holes into the road at marked places:


It looks like giant moles have invaded us:



The earth piles around the holes have been individually numbered:




 A porta potty is ready:


And this shows the van of the bomb disposal squad. They always do controls before digging and building in case any unexploded WWII bombs are there. I hope they didn't find anything:

And today we were even in the newspaper again. The drainage pipes are now on their way, and they hope the work will be finished by February. They didn't say if they mean February of 2022....We shall see! I will keep you informed!

Some photos from my morning walks:













And 2 funnies for you:



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