Another cold and frosty day.

Yesterday morning when I got up the sun was just rising, and the frost was sparkling on the fields; it was so lovely I had to run out onto my balcony - in my pajamas! - and take some pictures of the start of a wintry day:



I needed to do a bit of shopping yesterday, but I waited till the sun had melted the ice on my windscreen; I HATE having to scrape the ice off before I can get going! And I spent most of the rest of the day in my arty kitchen, painting my journal pages, making cards and drinking coffee. This time I have changed from geese to turkeys in my journal pages, as I am sure a lot of them will not be looking forward to Thanksgiving! I am linking again to AEDM at Creative Every Day




I am hoping the weather will be just as nice today, so that I can go for a walk along the Rhine. Here's hoping you all have a great day. Take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!

  1. Fabulous pages with a very worried looking turkey! Wish the sun would shine here another grey damp foggy day havn't seen the Sun since Sunday!!! Not a good light to craft by I will have to get another daylight bulb for my craft lamp to see me through the winter - roll on Summer!!! :-)

  3. Hi Valerie. A turkey with attitude! love it! You have a fabulous view off your balcony. I was looking at the photos, the top one especially, and thinking how those colours could be created with D. inks. Lovely inspiration. Have a great day.

  5. Poor little turkey -- sassy right to the end. After all this, are you actually going to cook a goose or turkey? Anyway Valerie - another good one. Hope you have a nice day and are able to get your walk in. Hugs, Donna

  10. Hi Valerie
    It is definitely getting cold here and the morning sunshine has now disappeared leaving it a very grey day.
    Love the turkey. I hope he will be saved this Christmas, maybe I need to rescue him, after all I am a vegetarian!

  14. I'm so glad we're not dealing with ice yet, just wind and rain (in Seattle). You commented on my flower arrangement and I wanted to share a how-to with you for the next time you buy/pick flowers. I wrote it, complete with photos, on my decorating blog.

    www.yourdecoratinghotline.com/valentine-florals/ or www.yourdecoratinghotline.com/tulip-vase-arrangement/

    Although this is about specific flowers, you could obviously substitute any flower and the principles are the same. You too can be a floral arranger!
