Mixed bag for Tuesday

Hi everybody!
Hope you are all fit and well. It's really cold here just now, but there was no snow up till now, so that's something!
Before I show my tag Tuesday tag, I would like to remind you that my dear friend Donna has a wonderful blog candy running until the 29th. This is such a GIANT candy, that it really is worth going over to have a look here.Donna is a great artist, and her blog is always worth taking a look!

It's Tag Tuesday again today, and our theme is black and white. I didn't have any good ideas for this one, so I am happy that I managed to get something done in the end. Sorry about the bad photos, it was so dark all day I couldn't get them any better.

But I played with some more matchboxes and made 2 more little decorations:

And this little chap followed me along the towpath yesterday- I don't know why, and I didn't have any food in my pocket for him, but he was evidently hopeful. Every time I stopped, he did, too, and looked at me!

And in the end, he hopped into the water and swam off.

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

  9. Thanks for posting my Candy, Valerie. Seems a shame so few have entered. Being wrongfully locked out of my blog by blogger after almost 4 years of posting was a huge blow and I lost so many dear friends. LIFE! I do love your black and white tag. So simple and classy. ... and the little duck! I want him to waddle around my yard, I wonder what Habibi would think? :o) Thanks again, my dear friend. hugs, Donna

    1. Hmm, Habibi mght want to enjoy him for dinner!

  10. Just look at all that candy.. I just know you are going to have some fun with all of it.. Love your tags my creative friend.


  11. Now I love duck for a meal, but that little fellow is so cute, shame I could never be a vegetarian. Fantastic tags as well.

  12. Valerie, your matchbox decorations are darling and so is the duck that took a liking to you!

  13. Fabulous take on the black and white sweetie! Love the pretty decorations too. I think that duck was just looking to get his 10 minutes of fame and wanted a spot on your blog. Maybe he overheard the gulls talking about what a beautiful blog you have. ~Diane

  14. Smashing tags Valerie, particularly love the black and white one, Annette x

  15. Black and White gorgeousness! Very nice and I love the decorations! The duck is just a little darling! Hugs!

  16. a stunning tag Valerie and I love your matchbox decorations too. perfect for small gifts or sweets

    TTFS and crafty hugs Annie x

  17. That is the cutest little duck - from now on you are going to have to take a little feed in your pocket. He was just so sweet.
    Congratulations - I think you won Donna's give away!
    Your Christmas tags are quite festive.
