Hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend as I did. It rained all day on Sunday here, but I was invited to a friend's for a wonderful meal, so enjoyed my day very much.
On Tuesday we are starting a new challenge at TIOT -
Recycle something. We want to see things which have been re-used or re-purposed, and you have 2 weeks to link your creation to us.
I recently found a pile of shabby notebooks, which had been stuffed into a drawer and forgotten for many moons. I made some covers for them using a sheet of printed card which a neighbour was throwing away, and offered to me. The little tag was one sent to me as part of a gift, and I fitted it to the cover as an embellishment. The ribbon was tied onto a free sample in a magazine. I used the last scraps of card to make a pocket inside each cover:
I am looking forward to seeing what you create for this challenge!
At Tag Tuesday you still have a week to enter our 'diamonds are forever' challenge. I have a small owl tag with pearls for eyes:
And Tuesday is also time for Elizabeth's tea stands for Tuesday, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T gang. Last Friday, which was a warm and spring-like day, I went for a walk with my buddy G through the wild-life park in Grafenberg, Düsseldorf, and afterwards we went for a pizza. G had a 'quattro stagione' pizza and I had a small margarita one. I had a diet cola with mine and G had a 'real' cola:
The wild life park is in a hill-top, wooded area, and we enjoyed walking around in the sunshine, eating ice creams, and of course, watching the animals.
The wild pigs and the little squeakers were fun to watch:
Lots of deer:
This notice was on a lot of the enclosures - be careful, we bite!
The raccoons had just woken up and were thirsty:
The frog was sunning itself on a path. And before you ask - no, I didn't try to kiss it - who needs a prince?
The trees are still bare:
More photos to follow another day!
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
