T stands for Snow

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday.
Our lovely Joan is hosting and has chosen
Christmas Memories as her theme.
As always, tags of all formats are welcome.
This time the challenge will be running for 3 weeks
instead of the usual 2, and the next one will start on 
January 2nd 2018.

I made a simple tag, which reminds me of my
childhood. At school I loved singing carols,
and when we went singing to collect
money for charity we wore old fashioned
coats and bonnets, which inspired my
tag today. I used DP for the BG and the little
girl is vintage German scrap:

Today is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday
so I would like to welcome all the nice ladies of the T Gang.
My drink is, as always, cappuccino,
served today with lemon cake:

Yesterday we had a snow blizzard which lasted for
5 hours, so I had to stay home again. I took the photos 
through the window:

Somebody didn't put the sunshade away!

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


  1. Hi Valerie ,wow I love your tag it has a vintage look,very nice,and your cake looks very yummy well done my friend 💋

  2. Fantastic tag, wonderful cake and cappuccino, and gorgeous wintry photos - what more do we need? Have a good day, and take it easy. Hugs, Sarah

  3. Hi Valerie. Love that german scrap girl. Beautiful snow photos. Believe it or not, it snowed here in Baytown, Texas (Houston area). On Dec. 8. Hurricane Harvey, then snow. Everyone was a little kid again, just what we collectively needed. xoxo

    1. You had some crazy weather. and that hurricane must have been very scary, but I'm glad the snow gave you some fun afterwards.

  4. Beautiful post and as always I am drooling over the view you have of the snow.xx[aNNie]🎄

  5. Your tag is wonderful! It reminds me on my friendship book I had at school, where all my girlfriends wrote a little quote and added such pictures.
    Your photo with the cappuccino, served with lemon cake, is very beautiful!
    God thanks, we did not have such snow blizzards! But your little blue bird is so cute!
    Liebe Grüße, Rike

  6. Your little blue bird is so sweet – but he does look cold out in that blizzard.
    I used to go carol singing with my sister and brother, but I’m afraid we didn’t do it for charity. I feel quite ashamed now, not that we ever made more than a few pennies (I don’t think we were very good!) Have a lovely day. xx

  7. your tag is lovely,, the cake looks amazing and five hour blizzard was what we had also lol,, we are so many miles apart but same weather lol,,,thank you for sharing the beautiful photos,, I love the snow shots, which sounds crazy because our snow will still be here in April but I do love snow,, I love my Canada,

  8. Wow, what a beautiful vintage tag! The little girl is delightful against the music sheet background - I love it 😁. Your snowy pictures are so pretty and that lemon cake looks mouthwatering in all its deliciousness! Stay warm and Happy T Day! J 😊

  9. such a sweet looking vintage tag. Love your lemon tray. And that snow storm-oh my- that would be enough to make me hibernate for a long time-yikes! Stay in, stay warm, and happy T day!

  10. Gorgeous vintage tag, love the little girl. We have had a foot of snow and can't get the cars out of the drive, as the drifts are so deep. Love your photos.
    Hugs Wendy

  11. Your lovely tag is so Victorian. So nostalgic and has me dreaming of simpler times. Your poor bluebird is freezing his little beak off. I'll skip the views from your window. I need the sunshine of your lemon tray and a slice or two of lemon cake wouldn't hurt. Have a Happy T Day! 190 days until the first day of Summer

  12. Gorgeous tag, I love the Victorian girl. Oh my you did have some nasty weather, we had a 'dump' of snow last night, first big one of the season :) Take care xx

  13. We are getting that snow today today at home, but here where I work by the coast it is raining, so I had a nasty drive in. Snow is much prettier to look at and not have to shovel and drive though I think. :) Love the tag today. That sounds like a good challenge.And you lemon cake looks delicious. You set a beautiful spot for us to enjoy a piece. I'll have my piece with tea. Happy T day Valerie. Hope your weather is better for walking. Hugs-Erika

  14. Such a pretty old fashioned tag Valerie! And SNOW! glorious, beautiful snow!!! Lucky you!!! Well at least i hope so... I hope you are warm and safe and snug as a bug in a rug... Happy T day!! Hugs! deb

  15. Oh, how charming - and yes, Christmas carol singing is a huge part of the festivities for me - it wouldn't be the same without plenty of Christmas music. And maybe for once we'll actually have a White Christmas round where we live - fingers crossed!

  16. Its a wonderful vintage tag Valerie, I really like the sweet little girl image.
    The snow photos look good, all the better for being inside and warm and not having to go outdoors.
    Your lemon cake looks delicious.
    Happy T day wishes.
    Yvonne xx

  17. Snow! Yes! I love seeing the photos of other people's lovely snowy scenes, as we rarely get any snow at all here. Thx! Happy T Tuesday

  18. Good morning, your tag is just so lovely and I love the vintage feel of it.
    Your snow photos are awesome-I would actually love to get lots of snow for a just a few days and then it can all melt away-lol The photo with your lemon cake is just beautiful
    Happy T Day Kathy

  19. What a lovely, Victorian-style tag.
    The photos are gorgeous. I love a gray backdrop with just a hint of color in the foreground.
    Save us some of that lemon cake:)

  20. lovely childhood memory and tag today! Your lemon cake looks so good. We have lots of snow here today too.

  21. I am in awe of your vintage German scrap. That really made the tag. It is awesome.

    I was actually pleased to read that you stayed home where you were safe and warm. The photos of your patio show how much snow you got. That poor little blue birdie looks frozen out there.

    LOVED the lemon cake. I am sure it is all gone now, but thanks for sharing it and your cappuccino with us for T this Tuesday. I really like that little cow in the background, too.

  22. So much lovely snow. Your lemon cake and cappuccino are beautifully photographed. I love your dishes!
    And your tag is stunning. That little girl really steals the show. I have never seen people in German scrap but I certainly would love to add some to my stash after seeing yours.
    Happy Tea Day

  23. Oh what a gorgeous tag! Your art is so beautiful... The sun shade looks a little forlorn in the snow, the photos are so lovely.

  24. Love your tag, great background with that G45 paper and that vintage Dresden scrap girl looks lovely! Love the little glittery bits! Amaing snow pictures too, - we have not had one flake so far....

  25. Love your tag, Valerie! The vintage little girl is the icing on the cake. She's charming. Nice Christmas Memories.

    Whoa, that was quite a storm! I hope you're staying warm and toasty inside.

    Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  26. Wonderful snowy photos Valerie, and your tag is lovely!
    Stay warm!

    Happy T-day

  28. I just love the way you displayed your tea (cappuccino) and cake- Lovely!

    Your tag is gorgeous! That little girl is exquisite! Is she Scrap? I just love her! I love your memories as well, thanks for sharing!
    Forgot to tell you last post, your new header is so beautiful- magical really!

    I feel your snow pain, we are getting dumped on here this morning,since last evening-just that time of the year!
    sending warm hugs my friend! Jackie xo
