Hope you have enjoyed your weekend, and that the weather has been kind to you.
Here it was hot, hot, hot, interspersed with cloudy intervals and thunder grumbling from time to time.
At Tag Tuesday our theme is 'The Fifties', which made me think of my childhood in London and school. The background of the tag is a school paper from Graphics 45, and here I have used both sides, as I couldn't make up my mind which one I liked best....
The photo, which has been matted with black card, shows me with my brother-in- law, a 'GI'. My sister was always determined to marry an American and move to the States, and that's just what she did. The picture was taken in 1954 when I was 7. She had lots of GI friends, and they always brought me candy, so I liked them a lot!
At Ty it on Tuesday our theme this fortnight is 'For the Boys', so we want to see your masculine creations. I have made an easel card with very masculine embellishments.
At MiFoc Manu has chosen the theme 'alltäglich', daily/every day for this week.
I have chosen a photo of the wonderful jam I made last week. I do not make jam or marmalade every day, but I do like to eat a spoonful every day, mixed into my yogurt. I never buy any, as I find the taste of the shop ones very disappointing. Here I am showing 2 sorts I made last week, rhubarb and ginger, and nectarine special. I have put ginger and spices in both sorts, and 'disinfected' them with liberal amounts of cognac, and they taste really wonderful. I am now looking forward to the blackberries ripening....
Today I saw that the hay is already in bales - it's very early this year.
I love these wildflowers I discovered:
And I always love to look up to the sky and watch the clouds:
Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a lot for coming by!
