Mid week Mix

Hi Everybody!

For Art Journal Journey, Journeys, I made a page with a vintage map of London as a background. I wanted to show it last week but  put the photos into the wrong file again. Mr UM is enjoying a stroll around London, and is not used to the strange traffic there. The birds have no problems, they are free to fly as they will. And the stop sign is a reminder to stop and look around you when you are out walking, because the journey is the destination - enjoy!







The warm weather has been good for the flowers:




 And the horses love it, too, but the one at the front evidently 
does not like flies:



The sun and the clouds made a wonderful display again 
in the early morning:






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

  5. I love Mr. Umbrella Man's trip to London. I bet he had a smashing time. And those roses are phenomenal. They are gorgeous. Mine are just getting leaves, and I discovered 3 of my bushes have died and I need to replace them. Have a wonderful Wednesday! Hugs-Erika

  6. I had to laugh at Mr. Umbrella Man because he and I would both have to be reminded to look left. Those Brits don't know which side of the street to drive on, thus the confusion (please don't throw your coffee at me, it's really a joke).

    Those peonies are much lovelier than mine. Mine are mostly pale pink and white. The ones you photographed are gorgeous.

    I can appreciate the horse not liking the flies. That's how I feel when the mosquitoes start buzzing around my head from all this rain that is standing everywhere.

    Have a super day.

    1. I would NEVER throw my good coffee at anybody! In the meantime I find it confusing, too, as I have got used to driving on the right!

  7. Terrific page with great ideas. You never fail to amaze me.

    The photographs are so lovely and the roses in bloom already brightened my day--it is cold and dull here again with a hint of rain.

    Hope you enjoy your day

    Love Chrissie xx

  8. Adore the umbrella man - associate him with London and well -- it's pure love for me. Great page, Valerie. The flower photos are spectacular. Love the horses as always - especially the portrait of the one bay horse - caught a great pose. hugs, Donna

  15. Peonies and horses. Can life get any better?
    I love maps for a background.
    Have a great one, my friend.

  16. Mr UM is quite the traveler. Terrific page because the journey is the destination.it would help if we all used the same measurements and drove on the same side of the street. It is hard coming from the US and driving on the right and concentrating to drive with the flow on the opposite side. The photos ofthe roses are gorgeous and the horses so well groomed and cared for. I enjoy my visit whenever I am able.
    Hugs,
    C

  17. Life is indeed a journey and a dizzy one at that. You have reminded me of what crossing the street in London is like. Habit dictates that I look to the left first, then I remember I have to look to my right. Still not trusting the traffic to my left, I look left again. Then I know I had better check to my right. Well this little dance goes on for a while until I am so dizzy my husband has to drag me across the street. Crossing a street in London is a journey!

  19. I always love your sky-scapes, I still think they would make a wonderful exhibition (although setting up for an exhibition is such a faff).
    Your AJJ page is so imaginative; the birds have it best for travelling in London, of course.

  20. Love the map background on this one, a fun journey page and beautiful photos!

  21. A fabulous page, the map and all the details do make you want to journey, but for me not London. Only been a couple of times, the noise and bustle was over whelming.
    Beautiful photos the flowers looked lovely.

  24. Oh why? oh why? have I not got Mr Umbrella Man yet - off for an internet search I think! This page is such fun! I love seeing those roses-I think we'll have to wait a while for ours! Hugs, Chrisx
