Hope your holidays were good!
For Art Journal Journey, light and darkness,
I have another hybrid piece. I merged photos of the watchman, seen in Kettwig, and a grungy wall here by the castle ruins, and placed them on a very grungy background with a collaged quote.
And here is the night watchman 'at home'
Tomorrow is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here a hearty welcome to all the nice ladies in the T Gang.
I recently had another coffee in the K20 art museum cafe, where
some strange figures are always hanging out:
The cappuccino there is really good;
Recently several people asked if I collect glass, as I often visit the glass museum. The answer is yes, I have collected bits and bobs
of glass since somebody bought me a little glass bird
when I was a child. Perhaps not the best hobby for
someone who likes dusting as little as I do!
Anyway, here are a few things from my collection:
This glass bowl is extremely thick and heavy:
This Scandinavian bird is one of my faves:
The blue and white one is one I made myself (with a lot of help from
Sepp, the glass blowing instructor), when I did a course many moons ago.
It's not quite straight, but I still like it:
Birds are still my favourites:
This ash-tray from the fifties is a so called 'rest of the day' piece,
as the glass blowers used to make this sort of glass
from leftovers melded together. I would never allow anyone to use it for ash!
I have more to show another day.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
