The sun is shining here this morning, although it's really cold. Sounds like good weather for walking!
I have another tag for my 'anything goes' challenge at Tag Tuesday. There is still a week to join us, so hope to see some of you doing just that!
This one has a painted and glittered background, and is 11 1/2" x 4 1/2". I matted it with some orange card to give a contrast and sewed it together. The little skellies are die-cuts from Sizzix,and the owl frieze has been punched. The black bats are also Sizzix die-cuts:
Today is also time for Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday party, so here a warm welcome to all of the lovely ladies of the T Gang who visit here.
I drank my cappuccino at various places.

Here on the market square:
And on the Market Square at Xanten, an ancient town founded by the Romans:
We did lots of walking last week. On Saturday Nathalie drove us to Xanten, and there is lots to see there, including a large archaeological park. The Romans called the town 'Colonia Ulpia Traiana' after the Roman Emperor Marcus Ulpius Traianus. Xanten also has a wonderful Cathedral and lots of quaint streets and houses to visit. And there is a lake near the archaeological park, and we had fun walking all round it. On that day I did over 22,000 steps:
Here we are on a 'selfie spot' with the roman walls in the background:
And here at the lake:
I took a lot of pics, here are just a few, the rest I will show in another post.

We saw a lot of old pumps:

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