Today I am sharing the tag I made for Tag Tuesday, where our theme this week is 'trees'. I used an 8" tag, distressed the background with a mix of DIs - wild honey, rusty hinge and shabby shutters. Then I used a CWS trees stencil and TH's spider's web, and went over them with rusty hinge. My 'trees' have been made from some oak-leaves and twigs picked up outside our house and dried in my giant Webster's dictionary. I glued them on with a hot glue gun, and am proud to say I did not burn my fingers this time. In October, trees are places for Halloween fun, so I added my witch and some bat die-cuts. I cut the fence wider than the tag, and glued it so that it gives a 3 D effect. The cat seems to have drunk some engorging potion and is probably wondering how he will fit through the cat flap when he goes home. The toadstools were in my stash.
On Sunday when I was out with my neighbour in the forest, the sun sometimes shone though the trees, making a wonderful and almost surreal atmosphere.
Inside the grounds of Landsberg Castle were several fountains, but this was my favourite.
I enjoyed seeing the plants and flowers, too:
Love the figure on the wind-vane:
Today is also Elisabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so a big welcome to her and the T gang. My neighbour gifted me a 'Stollen', a German Christmas cake. Alas and alack, it will not last that long! Anyway, help yourselves to a slice or two!
And my drink is, of course, coffee with foamy milk and chocolate sprinkles - what else?
I wrote this 'ode to coffee' some time back, and am repeating it here for those who don't yet know it.
Give me coffee, but not tea,
Tea is not the drink for me.
Coffee, frothy, brown and hot,
I can always drink a lot.
Coffee topped with whipped up cream -
This with joy will make me scream.
Café au lait with chocolate sprinkles,
Makes me happy, stops my wrinkles.
And if the point you have not seen -
A day without coffee makes me mean!
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
