Hats, headgear and more

Hi Everybody!

We had another clear and sunny day, a real Sunday
as the name implies. It's so nice to feel the sun on your face
or back while walking out.

For Tag Tuesday, Michele's 'hats and Headgear' challenge,
I made another tag, also meant for the Allsorts challenge blog,
ladies and girls. I made a very feminine tag, with an
animal print background behind the black, both tags sewn together
with white zig-zag stitch.I used some fussy cut images, a quote 
from Dyelusions and a pair of sparkly shoes. A pink pearl-pin, 
some feathers and some flowers were used as embellishments.
You still have a week to join the challenge,
and Michele is offering a prize from Lunagirl Images:

This card arrived from dear Annie in Australia,
she knows that I adore the house mouse images -
thanks Sweetie, your card is gorgeous, as all of your
work is. If you don't know Annie, hop over and take a look!

The crocuses and other spring blooms are much in evidence everywhere:

Stretching at the Rhine:

The Ship restaurant:

And more crocuses:

The moon last night:

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


  1. Love the feathers, trees and 'Moon-shots'

  2. Hi Val, love your tag, I used to have some shoes like that in my youth, but never had such a fancy hat! Wonderful photos again, the bulbs re starting to poke out in our garden now, too. The kids are still sick, aaaaaaaaaaaaaargh! Hugs, Sarah

    Lovely to see the crocus ... and seeing The Ship restaurant reminds me of a fabulous fish restaurant we like ....I'm beginning to feel hungry! LOL!

    All the best Jan

  6. Wow das ist ja die reinste Krokus-Invasion bei dir, herrlich anzuschauen. Dein Tag ist wieder so fantasievoll gestaltet, die Perlenschuhe sind genial. Annie's Herzkarte mit den süßen Mäusen ist ein Traum. Diese Mäuschen sind aber auch allerliebst,mag ich auch sehr.
    Big Hugs

  7. I love how the crocuses run wild like that everywhere! We are expecting a major snowstorm tomorrow night into Tuesday. Lovely feminine and springlike tag today and Annie's card is beautiful.

  8. Sparkly everything, what could be better, and some Spring flowers spreading across the ground. xox

  9. Gotta love that tag. She has all her accessories and is ready to go. I really like the way you created this and the beautiful way you decorated the images on the tag.

    Love the flowers. They bring so much joy when I see them, since mine don't seem to bloom.

    Wonderful moon shots. Almost ethereal.

  10. Beautiful spring flowers in today's photos. I love to see crocuses flowering free and not in a pot.
    I love the tag very girly and it has a great quote.
