Tuesday is always a busy blog day, and this one will be no exception!
We are celebrating a new challenge at Tag Tuesday,
Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday and also her
2nd on the 2nd, so I am trying to pack it

Modigliani's painting of Max Jacobs. I 'cased' a whole
row of his wonderful portraits a couple of years back.
Here the image was digitally cut out, and placed onto
a grungy background - a piece of an old wall by the
castle ruins, onto which I superimposed some
Hebrew lettering. I sewed all the layers together, and added
some studs and a Ticket made with 2 TH stamps.

upside down, perhaps so that Max can read it?! I am also
linking to Go Tag Thursday, where the theme is tickets.

of the T Gang.
For Elizabeth's TSFT and for 2nd on the 2nd I have a
hybrid piece made a year or two back. The sunshine in my cup has to

Diakonie. Florence Nightingale was a student nurse here.
The old Chapel has been modernised inside, which makes it
very light and airy. I love the contrast between the old, wooden fixtures
and the white simplicity:
The gardens were beautiful, too:
The tour was a little (lot!) longer than anticipated,
so some of us skived off and went to the ice parlour....
This time I'm showing the mug of tea one of the others

week to join our 'transport' challenge
Have a great day you all, take care,
