Turn, turn, turn

Hi Everybody!

Today I have some more pages from my 'new' journal, this time featuring some wonderful verses from the Book of Ecclesiastes, which were sung so beautifully by the Byrds in 1965. The song was written by Pete Seeger in 1950. I have written the text in English and in Hebrew.
I am linking to Art Journal Journey, for the record.

More photos of my visitors:

 The little tits (chicadees) are so pretty, I love watching them flitting about.

The horses are all wearing their winter coats again:

These three were racing about, having fun:

The Rhine is very full again:

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


  1. Another lovely journal-spread, music and photos - your posts are always really beautiful. Hugs, Sarah

  2. The colours are so beautiful, radiating a glow.
    Such a treat to visit you this evening - missed viewing your art.

  3. We have a lot of birds here too, and squirrels running across the road. Lovely page!

  4. This is a great journal page. I love this song. I especially love how you put the words in both English and Hebrew. And I love seeing your birds. Your chickadees look so different from ours. Hope you have a wonderful day. Hugs-Erika

  5. Lovely vintage style journal page! Your pictures are splendid to look at. Those horses look like they are having a blast! Awesome sauce! ~Niki

  6. I used both the song and the bible verse in my Time altered book. To add to that, I participate in Art Every Day Month in November each year. One year I did a play on those words, where it was a time to (whatever I created that day). So that song holds very special meaning to me, too. Like you, I did all the research and learned that Seeger wrote it and only added one line to the bible verse.

    Lovely photos of the birds and horses today. I really enjoyed the way the horses seemed to romp and play with abandon. It reminded me of the saying "Dance like no one is looking." Have a wonderful day, dear.

  7. Lovely mixed 'media' page and fabulous colours too...nice and bright. Fabulous photos again.x

  8. Fantastic page and a really beautiful song to choose.

    Love the little bluetits and the wonderful horses in their bright blankets. They will need blankets if it is a cold as it is here--we have frost and fog at the moment.

    Have a great day

    Love Chrissie xx

  9. Awwww... memories... surely a melody I will hum along now.

  12. Love todays song and your fantastic page to go with it.
    The photos are great and the horses would for sure need those blankets if they lived here as well.
    Yvonne xx

  13. Valerie, this page is wonderful! I just love the added gears and clock bits which give a steampunk feel! Photos as always are gorgeous! Still ridiculously busy here! Enjoy the day!

  14. OH Valerie! I really love this page and the way you wrote the verse in both languages. One of my favorite bands ♥ You have brought a lot of great memories this month with the music of my youth ♥ Your photos are fantastic too. Love the horses with their warm coats. Hopefully they won;t need them long!
