Morning and Evening....

Hi everybody!
The weather was so beautiful yesterday that I decided to go out for a walk in spite of my coughs and sniffles, and I was glad I did. It was really mild for the end of October, 19°, and blue sky - too good to stay home!
I took the photos at the Rhine at 11 AM, and was very surprised to see the moon as well as the sun - can you see it, too?


No moon on this one:


A small plane was having fun cruising around and drawing on the sky....


Here the moon is visible again:




And this was the evening sky, taken between sun-set and dusk:





I did some crafting in the afternoon, and used up the last remnants of autumn leaves, which had been rescued from  my table last week. The tags were also under many layers of stuff, I just needed to assemble them.
The first one is made of cardboard, which was painted, and embossed with molten gold Utee, into which I stamped with a flourish. I heated it a little again, and changed the colour by brushing on some perfect pearls in copper and green. The pretty wired beads were given to me by Craftymoose - thanks again, Debbie! I will show the other tag next time.






And another little catastrophe  happened - I slipped a bit on the floor, probably because I was wearing socks with no stoppers under them, and crashed my toe - the second smallest one - against the kitchen cabinet. The cabinet won! My toe now has a form something like a cross between a banana and a pear, and the colour of ripe plums. I am sure it is broken. As if I didn't have enough to contend with just now!
Anyway, enough for today! 
Take care, have a great day, and thanks a lot for comng by.

  1. Oh no! Your poor toe! I've never broken a toe, but I have stubbed one which was very painful--I can only imagine how yours feels! Probably not too much you can do for it either. The tag came out lovely and I really enjoyed the photos. It's funny...I saw the moon the other morning also!

    Julia hatte schon zweimal Zehenbrüche und ich hab mir als Kind mal die große Zehe gebrochen...
    ich fühle mit Dir ..
    aus Solidarität trag ich gra auf der rechten großen Zehe blau... frag mich nicht in welchen Schuh ich mir dieses Aua wieder geholt habe?!

  12. This seems to have been such a hard year for you health-wise. My toes tingle in sympathy at the thought of your slip and the damage it caused.
    Your photos are a joy to look at early in the morning, every one so lovely.
    Your tag is a feast of autumn colours, lovely.

  13. Fantastic photographs as always Valerie--it is so good that you share them with us.

    Pleased that you are still going for your walks even with the sniffles--they may get blown away.

    The art piece is wonderful with the metal effect background and the wonderful colours you added.

    Have a good day

    Love Chrissie x

  18. Ouchy ouchy ouchy!! Your poor toe Valerie! :( I bet there aren't many folk who can't empathise with stubbing a toe & having broken a few in my time, I am one of them who can. I do hope you aren't in too much pain & it heals quickly.
    Lovely lovely sky pics from you & your tag is very gorgeous!! A bit of bling & it would be awesome s a Christmas tag too. Do take care & wear house slippers! :0)

  21. Oh Mann, ich lese das jetzt erst mit deinem Zeh. Mensch Valerie, du machst aber echt Sachen. Bllöd ist ja, dass man da nix eingipsen kann. Der muss wohl nun ohne Hilfe wieder richtig zusammenwachsen, was?
    Dein Tag ist klasse geworden! Aber die Fotos sind mal wieder richtige Knaller! Hast du die mit Photoshop nachbearbeitet oder bringt deine Kamera wirklich so tolle Farben zum Vorschein?
