Midweek post and a tag

Hi Everybody!

It's Wednesday already, and I got woken up again this morning by the crows sitting in the tree outside enjoying the sunrise. I never need an alarm!

I have another tag for my 'anything goes' challenge at Tag Tuesday. I used a left-over piece of painted paper which I cut to shape, matted and sewed. The lettering in the background is from a sheet of very ancient rub-ons I discovered in my recent clear-out. They are hard to rub on as they seem to have dried out! The happy couple are from TH. They are both dancing on music, as they are off to a dance evening, and he has ordered some red roses to be delivered to her there - will he propose? You still have several days to join the challenge!





The weather here has been cooler these past days, with clouds and sunshine and rain, and I enjoyed watching the ever-changing skies. It's going to warm up again over the next few days:
















Sunrise this morning:


Nathalie and I went to collect our new spectacles:


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

  1. Hi Val, good morning! We all slept late today, what a treat, the kids are usually awake before even your crows wake up! Wonderful, romantic tag and gorgeous, atmospheric photos. Love how you take pics of the clouds and sky. Great shot of you and N, she's a pretty girl, and you both look good in the new specs! We're off to the park today for a picnic, so hope the weather stays dry. I'll be happy when the kids go back to school! Hugs, Sarah

  2. I love, love, love that tag. I love the background and the colors you chose. It went so well with the rub-ons and the b & w paper dolls. I've only had two sets of rub-ons and noticed that one set seemed to be less effective the older it got. Yours is still beautiful.

    LOVED the moody sky shots. They are wonderful. WOW, I like those new glasses, too. Have a super Wednesday, too, dear Valerie.

  7. We used to have some crows, but I haven't heard them all Summer. Maybe they flew over to your house. I like the colors on the tag. Your sky pics are amazing. I could sit and watch the clouds all day. I like looking for things in the clouds. Your new glasses look very nice on you. Nathalie, too. Enjoy your day.

  8. Gorgeous tag. I like the colorful background. It contrasts nicely with the B&W couple. Great photos. Your new glasses look nice. My weather is the opposite of yours: it will continue to be hot and humid for a few more days, then we cool off. Yay!

  9. And you both look very nice in those spectacles too. Love the cloud photos very much. And that's a great tag too. I added one that I started for the summer fun challenge and then never finished, but it is done now and posted over at tag Tuesday. Have a great Wednesday and enjoy your cooler weather while it lasts. hugs-Erika

    Glad you've had cooler weather.It had cooled enough for me to read on the porch yesterday evening, which I enjoyed.

  15. They are one of my favourite Paper Doll couples and you've given them a wonderful setting here... such rich colours and vibrant energy to the tag. Great cloudscapes today - amazing how they just hang there in the blue - miraculous! And very smart new glasses too!

    1. So true! It's very hot here again, too, and will be getting more so, but at least it's not a Bank Holiday!

  24. Hello Valerie, both yourself and Nathalie look brilliant in your new glasses, they're lovely styles too.
    I love the romantic tag - going to a dance, surprise red roses, all the ingredients for a happy time 💕
    I chuckle when I read about your feathery alarm clocks! Naughty birds, they must show some consideration for their neighbours ;D)
    So glad you've had the reprieve of some cooler weather - those skies look amazing and what a beautiful sunrise you show. Cheers and hugs
