On Tuesday we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday,
Use your scraps.
I have boxes of scraps which are, for me, too good to throw
away, and I am sure I am not alone with my scrap-hoarding instincts.
This is THE opportunity to use some of them, so start de-stashing
and hope to see you linking to us at Tag Tuesday
with your scrappy creations.
I made a largish tag, 9 x 6 1/2", using corrugated cardboard,
tyvek from an envelope, scraps of lace and netting, and a

sewed them onto the card, and then sewed it to the background
paper, which had been hand-painted. I like how this one turned

The second one has been made with scraps of paper and lace
collaged onto an old revision card. I added a die cut sentiment. This tag

I am looking forward to seeing what YOU create!
I found this pretty postcard advertising a flea-market in
a neighbouring town, and as it has a cup on it, it is suitable
for T stands for Tuesday, Elizabeth's weekly drinks party.
I would like to send the card to a new home, so if you would like it,
let me know in the comments. If more than one person should be
interested, I will pull the names from a hat!
On Saturday I baked waffles to help me cope with a day
of non-stop rain and lots of crafting:
And of course, I never go without my cappuccino:
Yesterday I visited the Kunstpalast, an art museum here.
It was not exactly exciting - half the museum is being reorganised for
a new exhibition, and most of the other half is being rebuilt
or renovated. There was a small exhibition of paintings
from Andreas Achenbach, a famous painter from Düsseldorf,
whose paintings I like very much:
I always enjoy seeing the architecture of the buildings:
There are a lot of insurance buildings nearby:
This is one I showed from the other side last week:
As I walked back to the tram I saw dozens of bikers on Harleys
waiting at the lights, revving up their motors with as much
noise as they could make:
We had a wonderful moon yesterday evening:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
