It's weekend, and it's sunny; not too hot, not too cold - just wonderful!
I went for a very long morning walk and came back tired, hungry and happy.
Hope your weekend will be great, too!
Today I have another tag to share for Wendy's theme over at Tag Tuesday
I don't have any stamps for apples and pears, so carved myself two quick ones. They didn't turn out quite as I was hoping, but they are usable. I stamped them using oxide inks in twisted citron, lucky clover and pickled raspberry. The tag is about 6". I used colourful stripes for the background, matted with coordinating colours and all sewn together. The extra leaves are textile ones:
Linking to Simon Monday challenge, stamp it.
Last week Elizabeth commented on the different sorts of stones used for paving the roads and paths here, so I went round and tried to get pictures of as many sorts as possible. People kept asking why I was taking pics of the stones, but I could not be bothered to think up any answers! I took so many photos of the various cobble stones and bricks that I decided to put them together to make 2 collages. I included a couple of street views and a couple of gravestones built into walls. The little bronze plaques are there to remember the people who lived in those houses before they were deported by the Nazis to the death camps. When I visited Berlin I found the names of many family members of my grandmother engraved on the stones:
Then I had a bit of fun playing at Tuxpi to make some patterns:
This morning's sunrise:
Masses of people streaming along the Rhine - it's 'Dreck-weg-Tag', literally translated 'dirt-away-day' or the twice yearly clean-up by volunteers. I didn't take part this time, but plenty did:
And I had a quick visit to the basilica to light some candles for all friends near and far:
And took a few photos of the golden shrine of Saint Swidbert from the middle ages. It's hard to get a good shot, as you have to keep your distance to avoid setting off the alarms:
There is still time to join in my giveaway if you want to.
Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by.
