Today has raced by! My neighbour Gabi invited me to breakfast this morning before she took her Mum home. Then she asked if I wanted to go along for the ride. So I did! Then we decided to go to Holland to do some shopping, a lot of things are much cheaper there, so we ended up in Venlo, did the shopping, ate a huge portion of chips (French Fries), looked round the town and then came back home in time for me to get ready for the Philosophy Circle in the evening, to get some new thoughts into my head. All in all a fun and busy day!
At Art Journal Journey our theme for this month is still collage. I made another page in my giant journal, using paper napkins and gesso as background. The music instruments were cut from the old Sears and Roebuck catalogue from the 1890s. I used some washi tape and stenciled the word 'music' to finish it off. I think the prices for the instruments are not valid these days!
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.
And of course I took some photos of Gabi and Maria, her Mum:
And of Gabi with Lilly:
And with Lucky:
These are Maria's geese, which have to be kept in a shed just now, as there have been cases of bird flu, and they are not allowed out, which makes them very unhappy, poor things - they miss their meadow and pond!
In the supermarket in Venlo we met Santa Claus, who was really charming:
This is the old Town Hall in Venlo:
And one of the lovely cafés:

And a last look along the street before we drove home.
Here's wishing you all a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
