 Hi Everybody!

Today we are staring a new challenge at TIOT and our them is winter blues.We have had a real wintry weekend so this theme is very fitting just now. Please pop over to the TIOT blog and see the beautiful pieces my teamies made. Projects of all formats are welcome, 'real' or digital or hybrid, and you have 2 weeks to link to us.

I made a wintry tag:



I am also linking to Tag Tuesday, Michele's faery garden challenge

I have a selection of photos, mostly taken in spring, a time many of us are looking forward to:





















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

  10. I have searched and I have searched, Valerie, but I don't see a bird anywhere, not even a stray feather on the snow, not an unused nest of a Balconia rarity, not a hint of avian anything! How can this be? No doubt you will immediately wish to fix this egregious omission and immediately set about modifying your wintry tag. I am happy to know that you have snow all about you and will look forward to your pictures of these winter scenes - perhaps even with a bird or three! Vielen hugs from across the ocean. David

    1. Hi David. The birds are there, of course, you just can't see them because they're sitting snug in the ice skates. Here in the clinic we have a little robin who always hops into the kitchen porch for some crumbs, we call him Kurt! I will try to paint some birds for you soon! Have a great day, take care, hugs to you both!

  12. I love that tag. The little winter fairy really works for this TIOT challenge and of course Tag Tuesday too. I am behind tag making this year so far!( Frown face for me.) And thank you for the spring photos. We have been having too much grey skies this January. Hope all is well. Hugs-Erika

  13. Love your tag Val. Fascinated by the winter scene. I had to enlarge it to take in the detail of course. Just wonderful. I am with you on waiting for spring. I am mindful of the Covid in this area. It is not good. I pray you are getting better. Take care and stay safe.

    Hugs and Blessings,
    Jim
