T sTands for This and That and a Tag for Tag Tuesday

Hi Everybody!

Today I woke up to a foggy morning. I wondered why it was so quiet, and then realised I couldn't hear any planes from the nearby airport. When I looked out of the window I realised why - fog. It has got much colder here, and that often results in fog and mist. But I love to see it.:




Today I am sharing a new tag for Michele's 'winter scenes' challenge at 
Tag Tuesday, made with elements from me and Serif. You still have a week to join us and it would be wonderful to see some more people joining in:



Today is also time for Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party, so here a warm welcome to all of the lovely ladies of the T Gang who visit. Yesterday I drank my coffee at Cafe Burghof, next to the castle ruins:


There are strange decorations everywhere:



And a wonderful view of the Rhine:


The yard outside is also full of old and rusty cars, I have shared pics of them before:



 I liked these painted doors leading to a yard behind a row of houses, I think I will enjoy having a coffee there in summer:



Cappuccino with heart:


And at the bakery:


Christmas tableware has been reduced:


But still rather too expensive for me:


We had mild temperatures last week, up to 15°C, and so I enjoyed my walks:










And I bought myself a bunch of daffodils for 99 cents to bring spring into my home:




 And the fog hasn't moved away yet, but at least it's now light:


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

    Lovely cups of coffee on your header!
    Your tag is sweet Valerie, I like the theme xx
    A pleasant (and quirky) cafe with such a lovely view of the Rhine.
    Lovely walks and how nice to have a bunch of those bright and happy daffodils.

  4. It's amazing to see those snowdrops. Here we have only the snow and will not be seeing flowers for a couple of months yet. Your coffee, as always, looks delicious. And I have to say, for 99 cents, who could resist daffodils for the house?

  6. Hi Val, another lovely post! You are brave going out into the icy fog to take photos, brrrrrrrrr! But they are very atmospheric! Love the beautiful tag, little S likes it too, she's saying 'wannit, wannit'. You have another fan! The other photos are gorgeous, too, and the daffs were a bargain, lucky you! I remember Burghof very well, especially the decorations in the toilets, it was a scream! Hugs, Sarah

  8. So many beautiful pictures to look at today. The fog looks so eerie. The tag is very cute and I love the sentiment. In warmer weather it looks like sitting outside the cafe to watch the Rhine would be a lovely spot. The hearts on your cappuccino made me smile, too. Best of all was seeing the pretty snowdrops and pots of tulips. Your daffs look so pretty in your blue vase. Spring can’t be too far off.

  13. Those foggy photos are eerie Valerie! Beautiful tag and photos. Love the snowdrops and daffodils. I am enjoying my morning coffee right now!

  14. Beautiful daffodils in your gorgeous blue vase! The Rhine is quite an intimate river - wish I could do a cruse in the Spring or early summer. But I wanted to experience the Christmas markets - so we had rain and lots of it. Somebody goofed - I was supposed to be beautiful and rich!
    As always, I enjoyed your pictures!

  15. The fog is always so atmospheric, especially with those lights coming through. And I really like the new tag. The little mouse is so adorable. You've shown us this coffee house I remember, and it is still unique. Those chickens in the car did make me smile, but it took me a minute to decide if they were indeed real. Happy early T day. I hope it is a fantastic new week Valerie. Hugs-Erika

  17. Beautiful fog photos. I love the trees in your art. Their shapes are wonderful. What a sweet little cookie to go with your coffee. Nice touch :) Those windows look out on the perfect view. It looks like spring is coming there. Bringing daffodils home sounds like a good idea :) Happy T Day!

  18. Your tag is beautiful Valerie, I love those icy colours. That fog is so atmospheric isn't it, it puts you into a bubble of your own little world. All these lovely Spring flowers are coming through, I bet Mother Nature slaps them back down in February though lol. Have a great week, Sue xx

  24. What a lovely tag you created. It was fun to see it, too. LOVE the photos of the Cafe Burghof. I remember that place with the old cars, the quirky decorations inside and out, and of course, your cappuccino.

    Great photos of the fog. For me, fog is hard to capture. Those Christmas tea and coffee sets were beautiful, too. Thanks for sharing your wonderful tag, your adorable photos of fog and shopping, and your trip to Cafe Burghof and others with us for T this Tuesday, dear friend. And thanks for your kind words, too.

  27. Oh this is kinda gloomy and a little eery but so beautiful! There's something so earthy about the mist in the early morning. I LOVE your tag - so wonderful and vibrant! The colors are just gorgeous. Those are some interesting models (decoration?) that are up in the store - great advertising! Put one some clothes and a hat and easy! LOL!

  29. Valerie your photos are gorgeous, I do miss spring flowers, especially the snowdrops, they never grow here, I planted loads when we first came here but they never appeared!
    A lovely tag, lovely colours and beautiful coffee cups, I love the heart, some of the cafes here do that too.
    Jan x Happy T Day

  30. beautiful tag art! Your cappuccinos always look so good and make a wonderful looking banner too:) There's something about fog that truly is lovely-unless you have to drive in it. Oh, and you have snowdrops already? Nothing here yet... but I'm watching. Happy T day!

  31. I'm not really a lover of fog. It makes me feel claustrophobic, and of course the humidity makes me feel even colder. But it makes for lovely photos.
    Your tag is gorgeous too. The quote is very true.
    We're on a detox so no coffee for us at this time. So I loved just looking at your cappuccinos. They look so delicious....
    Wow! Snowdrops already! I love seeing those. They come a close second in my top favorite 'wild' flowers,after the bluebells in the woods and parks.
    Happy T-Day,
    Hugs,
    Lisca

  33. The photos of the mist and fog are fabulous and I'm loving your wintry scene! I love the images that you used especially the pretty robin 😀. Your drinks look lovely and I enjoyed looking around the shops. The snowdrops are beautiful too! Happy T Day wishes! Hugs, Jo x

  34. Beautiful project Valerie! You have used that calendar perfectly!! Loving your gorgeous tag too. Wow what a blog full of eye candy today! Love your photographs. That cafe is something else!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. What a beautiful page and thought, Valerie. Simply beautiful!

    Cafe Burghof is always fascinating. Eye candy everywhere.

    Are the flowers snowdrops? I should know, but I'm not sure. Plus you might call them something else. I'm fascinated by all the dew drops you captured in the first photo of them. Awesome!

    Happy T-day! Eileen xx

  36. I always love mist photos. Your tag is lovely. I like the cappuccinos, and your new blog header showing them too. That cafe does have odd decorations. I like that vintage car outside. Those snowdrop flowers growing are one of the first signs of Spring! The daffodils you bought for yourself are nice. I realized my daffodils are just beginning to poke out of the ground. They're snow covered now, but they are hardy, and just keep growing, despite the snow and bitter cold. Happy T-Day!

  37. Lovely mysterious misty fog - nice that it makes your world more peaceful too with no aeroplane noise! - and the snowdrops and tree branch silhouettes are all so beautiful too.

    Your winter scene is really delightful - such a sweet little girl and birds and mouse - and the delicate snowflakes are gorgeous.
