T Stands for This and That

Hi Everybody!

Tomorrow we are staring a new challenge at
Tag Tuesday - all creatures great and small, hosted by
our lovely Wilma. I hope you will have time to join us in the next 
2 weeks. I have just been doing digital crafting this time, as I
have not yet been well enough to get back to the grind.
'All things bright and beautiful' is the first line of an English 
children's hymn. My first thought with 'all creatures great and small' 
was Beatrix Potter, and her famous and lovable creatures:

For Elke's challenge 'landscapes of the soul' at
Art Journal Journey I made a digital piece using images from 
Mischief  Circus, Serif and me. I am also linking to Digitally made,
Halloween or use.....purple:

Tuesday is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here a big welcome 
to all of the ladies of the T group. My drink is usually coffee, but
lately I was feeling so bad I didn't even want my coffee - that
is a bad sign!

Sunday's sunrise:

Some photos taken last time I was out and about:

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

  10. Das freut mich jetzt sher dass du mit machst bei meinem Thema und ich muss sagen ich bin begeistert von diesem schöner Journalseite, ich kann mich so richtig hinein versetzen und diese Kopfform darin diese Szene mit dem Vogel!
    Danke für dieses wunderbares Kunstwerk!!!
    Der Tag och wie süss der ist so goldig die Tiere auf dem Land sp romantisch!!
    Schön der Engel im Schuafenster und die Pilze tolle Fotos von ihnen. Und das grösste mit dem Fahrradständer im Laub ich musste laut lachen, weil da stand vor Jahren mein Fahrrad auch schon mal. Es berührt mich immer wieder diese schöne Erinnerung dort !
    Ich wünsche dir einen schönen Abend und einen schönen Feiertag!
    Lieben Gruss Elke

  11. Love, love, love the tags with the Beatrix Potters images.
    Your photo's are delightful, especially the sunrise and those mushrooms.

  12. Please take care of yourself! Lots of chicken soup!
    I love both your digital pieces! My favourite is the Halloween one!
    Gorgeous photos!! Soon, you will be drinking coffee again!
    Big Hugs!

  13. What amazing art you chose for us today. I like that tag you made and it gives me an idea for one I might try. I also like your AJJ entry, too. It's really beautiful and so nice to see you are at least working with digital.

    Your photos are superb. I love the shots from town. They are really lovely, especially the bicycles and the leaves.

    You must REALLY be sick if you don't want coffee. Now I think I need to call a doctor for you if you don't want your beloved caffeine. Thanks for sharing your lovely art AND your cappuccino with us for T this Tuesday, but please get better soon so you can drink the real thing soon!!!

  14. Dear Valerie I have not been in touch so I did not know you were not well. I hope it's nothing serious and you are mending. Sending thoughts and good wishes for your health.
    Your tag is just darling, and the dark fantasy piece-LOVE!! I know I'm really sick too when coffee isn't appealing:(
    Beautiful autumn scenery along the Rhine. I don't think I would have walked away from that angel though:):)
    Get well, and happy T day!

  15. The tag is just precious. Beatrix Potter's creatures are perfect for the hymn. The journal page is stunning. Love all the imagery. Fall is a lot further along at your house. With all the leaf drop. The mushrooms look like little umbrellas. Too cute. Hope you're feeling better and will be able to enjoy your coffee soon.

  16. Hope you feel better soon! Your tag is adorable and Beatrix Potter is one of my favourites 😁. The imagery and colours of your digital journal page are so magical - I love it! Such beautiful autumn photos too. Wishing you a Happy T Day! J 😊

  17. You and I make a great pair, I have the dredded influenza but just want to compliment you on your amazing work.xx [aNNie]

  18. No coffee-that is a bad sign. Hope by next week you want your coffee again. I love your tag with the Beatrix Potter animals. They are perfect for those words. And I love the darkness to your AJJ piece. All ready for Halloween. Hope you are back to playing with art supplies really really soon, and happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  20. Your tag is gorgeous and your digital art is splendid. Very poignant words, too. Love that photo of the bicycles.

  21. I'm one of Beatrix Potter's greatest fans so I love your tribute tag! And those delicate mushrooms are exquisite. Never seen any like that before. Wonderful images of them.

  22. you have me worried... no coffee! i hope you get to feeling better soon...I LOVE your Halloween piece! All the elements just come together beautifully.. Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  23. love your autumnal photos and hope you get better soon

  24. I'm sorry to hear you're still not feeling well, Valerie. Yet still you found the energy and inspiration to create some beautiful art. The Beatrix Potter tag is darling and the AJJ page is absolutely stunning! I enjoyed your autumn pictures about town as well, especially the bikes and the mushrooms popping their skinny little heads up through the leaves.

    Happy T-Day! Hugs, Eileen

  25. I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well, but I'm like you in not wanting coffee during those times. I love the fall leaves. Happy T Tuesday

  26. What adorable inspiration from Beatrix Potter! I loved her stories and artwork as a little girl. Coffee is a must for me every morning however when I am sick, it is one of the last things I want. Your coffee appetite will bounce right back. :) Those mushrooms are the cutest!

  27. Oh Val, both those pieces are wondrous, but the first tag ever. Very Beatrix Potter:)
    Love the pics. Isn't the sky glorious?
    Hope your day is filled with sparkle.

  28. A gorgeous tag dear Valerie, that song is running through my mind now :D) The little cottage background scene is beautiful too.
    Your design for halloween is amazing!
    I hope its not too long before you can be outside enjoying your walks once more... together with a lovely cup of coffee. Hugs xx

  29. This is really lovely Valerie, this is one of my favourite hymns (I had it at my wedding) and I love your Beatrix Potter images. I'm sorry that you've been ill, and also that I've not visited your blog in ages, but real life catches up sometimes. I hope you're feeling better now. Take care, Sue xx

  31. I love your digital art, Valerie. Especially the first one is absolutely amazing! I love the duck with the vintage hat!!!!!! And your photos are great, my friend. I love the sunshine, too!!! I hope you get better soon and... drink a coffee!!!! Kisses!!!
