Leaving the middle ages

Hi Everybody!
I'm happy to say it's cooled off a bit here today, it's been
extremely hot the past week and some fresh air
would be very welcome!
For Elizabeth's summertime love at Art Journal Journey
I have a journal page, put together using elements from Serif, 
Mischief Circus and me:

And a last Tag for Joan's beach theme at Tag Tuesday:

Dark moon rising - taken last night:

 These are the last photos of Zons:

A fun decoration on a back gate:

The Krötschen Tower:

 More flowers growing in the walls:

A fun mailbox made to look like a satchel:

And the huge, oak gates leading us back out from the middle
ages to the present time:

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


  1. I'm in love with your dreams of summer. As someone who has a love affair with palm trees (they would never survive here in winter), I loved that element, as well as the beautiful girl. This is a very special entry for Art Journal Journey.

    I'm going to miss Zons. The beautiful flowers, the bright colors and flower boxes, the patterned and cobbled streets, and the flags/buntings hanging everywhere. It's been a fun adventure to see this city through your camera lens. I've enjoyed this visit tremendously.

    Thanks, too, for your lovely Art Journal Journey entry today. It's truly GORGEOUS.

  2. I'm sad we're leaving Zons, I much enjoyed my walks there with you. Love the light and airy page you made today, I would like to be on the beach too, but we are staying in a little place in the hills with Mum. Love the moon photos, too, very atmospheric. Hugs, Sarah

  3. I am in love with your moon! You always show such beauties!

  4. The page is so very beautiful Valerie. You created a magical scene

    Brilliant quote on the tag though surfing was never one of my strong things--I did try though.

    I almost had to close my eyes to try and resist some of the wonderful walls and wonders on your photographs today--I kept them open and couldn't resist saving 2 of them. Thank you.

    Great moon-was it really that colour?

    Have a terrific day

    Love Chrissiue xx

    1. You're welcome, the walls in Zons are really very special and beautiful. And yes, the moon really was that colour - I just grabbed my camera and ran out in my PJs to get some pics!

    Happy Sunday!

  8. Your summer page looks very cooling. Nice beach tag and a wonderful moon. Beautiful photos of Zons.

  9. Love your page. I think that lady is on the cruise ship from yesterday just waiting to reach the beach. :) And I will remember that quote from your tag. Its perfect for summer. I have very much enjoyed my little armchair trip to Zons too. It really is a beautiful place. Where are we cruising to next? Happy Sunday Valerie. Hope so far its been a good one. Hugs-Erika

  10. OMG, look at that moon!
    The walk is wonderful. What a lovely place to visit. Do cars fit in those streets/alleys?
    The summer themes are great! The first one is very exotic and love the surf life.
    Hope your day is going swimmingly:)

    1. Cars fit in most of the streets, but not all - it's a very tiny place!

  11. Glad it cooled off a bit for you! I love the beach/ocean themes. The beach is one of my happy places. :) Beautiful job!

    Such fun and interesting pictures. I feel like I am traveling right from my couch. :)

    Have a lovely day!

  12. Your AJJ page is really beautifully dreamy and romantic looking.
    Love your seaside themed tag - that's a great fun quote.
    Great shot of the moon!
    Loved your fabulous Zon photos (thank you) but sorry that's the last of them.
    I always love all the textures and unusual things and today that satchel mail box and the last photo of that fantastic studded door caught my eye.
    Glad your weather has cooled down a it - hope you've had a wonderful day.
