Hope your week got off to a good start. We had a weekend of glorious weather. Today is a bit cooler but still very pleasant, and I was able to enjoy my walk.
Yesterday I went on an outing with some friends to the neighbouring town of Duisburg - more about that later!
At Tag Tuesday we are beginning a new challenge:
-Black and white and a spot of colour-
Tags of all formats are allowed, and as always, you have two weeks to link your creations to us. There will be a little prize this time, too, for one lucky participant. I made a tag with an elegant evening outfit in black. It's years since I wore anything like that as I find my baggy old jeans more comfortable for every day:
It is also half time at TIOT's 'recycle something' challenge, and here I have another recycled/upcycled notebook. I covered the torn and dirty cover with crinkly bronze paper, added some bronze structure paste around the edges, and used an iron on beaded owl to complete the picture:
When we arrived in Duisburg on Sunday, after parking the car our thoughts turned to food and drink to fortify ourselves for the walk through the masses of people who were there to enjoy all the fun of the fair, lots of good things to eat and a well stocked artisan market. We started off with rolls filled with freshly fried fish, with Turkish baklava for dessert. Then we went across to another cafe for some cappuccino. Today is Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Gang .
The fish booth:
I must say that we did not stop at every eatery we saw along the way!
There were lots of good things to see at the artisans' booths - here some cookie moulds:
And some rusty art for Elizabeth:
The opera house:
Freshly smoked salmon:
To complete the day we went on a boat-trip around the wonderful harbour, but I will show the photos in my next post:
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
