Midweek post

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well. We had a dry day here, and it's very mild - 14°. Crazy for this time of year. The birds were happy, and busy singing all day, they probably think it's spring. I'm wondering how it's going to be in the last days of the year!

I have another tag for Sandie's challenge at Tag Tuesday, a vintage and masculine one, as it is meant for a neighbour who likes taking photos. The background images are from an ancient Sear's catalogue which is slowly but surely disintegrating. The other images are from C.I:




 Isn't this sweet?


The Rhine is very full:


I went for a walk along the Rhine and through our little town just as it was getting dark. The photos are not so good, I just took them with my phone:













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

  3. Hi Valerie :)) I LOVE the big anchor and that pathway with the lit lanterns is so beautiful! Your piece is so lovely, the pretty girls and the Sears catalog! Oh I remember we used to have the Sears catalog coming in the mail every year and I'd look through each page and dream of having those things! Nice memories! See you on Thursday!! :)

    1. Catalogues used to be fun to look through. But I think this edition of Sears is older than both of us together!

  4. Hi Val, just caught your post before I fall into bed. Love the tag, those old images are all collector's pieces in the meantime! Lovely photos, too, I love the look of Kaiserswerth in the evening. At other times, too, but evenings with the pretty lights it's really gorgeous. Goodnight, sleep tight! Hugs, Sarah

  5. Ah, the old Sears catalog. I remember it well. Window displays are lovely this time of year. Your night-time photos with those lights are beautiful!

  6. Love the tag.

    I think the night-time photographs showing the lights are lovely … they create such a nice atmosphere.

    Happy mid-week wishes.

    All the best Jan

  7. LOve the tag and the evening photos. Lights in the dark at this time of year for some reason look so much more beautiful than they do on a summer night. Maybe because we have so much dark or the cold air does something. Happy id-week. Hugs-Erika

  11. That tag is amazing. I love what you did with the Sears magazine and how you paired it with the camera and film strip of women.

    As I've said before, there's just something magical about Christmas lights at night. The homes look so warm and inviting, too. You live in a lovely area.

  20. Oh wow that tag is so gorgeous Valerie, pure perfection!! Your photos are amazing! You either have a brilliant phone are it's just your keen eye but I do love the light you have captured them in. We are in the midst of a really back storm here at the minute. Lashing rain and 70 mile an hour winds and building up to worse!! Batten down the hatches lol.
