Tuesday This and That and Elizabeth's Cat

Hi Everybody!

Today is Tuesday, which means it's the day between Monday and Wednesday.
And as well as that, it's also time for Tag Tuesday, where our theme is
shabby chic, and for Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday - here a big 'hello' to all of the T gang and everyone else who drops in. I would also like to remind you that it's half time over at TIOT, where our mood-board challenge will be running for another week, so you have plenty of time to get in your lovely projects with spring colours.

My tag for tag Tuesday is quite simple. I used an image from Gecko Galz, printed out a few years back, when I accidentally printed out a whole pile of images instead of just one. I placed the lady on a corrugated card tag, peeled, painted white, and with some Utee gold drizzled round the edges. I added lots of flowers, to her hat as well, some lace and a butterfly, and some pink fibres.




For T stands for Tuesday I made a tea-party page. I am also linking to Art Journal Journey, for the record, inspired by the song 'Tea for Two', sung so unforgettably by Doris Day back in 1950.





And last but not least, some photos taken on my walk today, at the Rhine, by the Basilica and through the Marien Hospital gardens:








Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by, always nice to see you!

  5. Ok that tag is basic but gorgeous, and your tea invite is perfect! I love how you personalized it from Elizabeth too. :) Next week you should have an invite for all of us for coffee. :) And lastly, those flowers-wow! They are gorgeous. Happy T day!

  6. What an impressive and inspiring T post. Bleubeard and I love the personalized invitation you created. We are both honored and love the thoughtfulness behind it.

    Of course, that tag is out of this world. I did something similar awhile back, where I printed an entire page of images and only needed one. One nice thing about it is, they come in handy over time. I adore how you added the butterfly, flowers, and lace to the cardboard tag and lovely image. It's a real beauty.

    My tulips are all gone, but yours are in full bloom. Very impressive photos. I love the one of the cobblestones. Looks like one stone is missing in one of the squares. I bet it's beautiful in the summer. Of course, the other plants and flowers are fabulous, too.

    Thanks for sharing your tag, your wonderful photos, and most of all, that adorable invitation with us for T this Tuesday.

  23. wonderful to see all you have shared.
    today what caught my eye is the cobblestone path. I might have to make one square somewhere here to enjoy.

  24. Wow! I love that tag! I have Gecko Gals stuff too but haven't used any of it yet. You have inspired me.
    I love your Tea for Two page. And I really like Doris Day. Thanks for sharing that song. BBC Radio 2 are doing music of the 1950s this month. (Now I have my computer in the kitchen/living room and decent speakers, I listen to the radio all day).
    Your photos are stunning. You live in a beautiful area. The tiny flowers and the cobbles are lovely.
    I very much enjoyed your post,
    Thanks for visiting and Happy T-Day,
    Lisca

  28. You made me a very happy camper with your post today. Your tag is so pretty and mood setting. Just delightful! I also love your tea party invitation - perfect for an English Tea - You even have the strawberry jam and I am sure they will serve lots of clotted cream.
    You pictures are always wonderful Valerie - just be careful if you are walking on those stones!!
    What really put a song in my heart and a smile on my face was the video of Doris Day. Boy did I ever grow up with her and she always had the prettiest clothes!!

    1. She was really delightful, that's true. I am always careful walking over the cobble stones, they can be very treacherous.
