New Challenge at TIOT

Hi Everybody!

We are enjoying a few days of warm and sunny weather here after a cold and stormy weekend. But over the Easter days it's going to be cold again....

Today we are starting a new challenge at TIOT, and our theme is 'Hello Spring' . Spring is here in full swing, the trees are blossoming, fresh green leaves are sprouting and the gardens are full of daffodils and tulips. In the woods I saw violets, too. Lots of inspiration for creative pages, so hope to see YOU there. As always, projects of all formats are welcome, and you have 2 weeks to link to us. Have a look at the great creations of my teamies on our blog!

I made an A4 mixed media page in my journal. The bird is one of the widely unknown species which are only found here in Balconia-by-the-Rhine, and is a yellow billed blue whistler:

And some photos of my walks from the past few days. I'm a lot slower than usual, but the main thing is I can get out and about!

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

T sTands for This and ThaT

Hi Everybody!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Here it has been cold and very windy, and there were even some hail showers yesterday. But I got out for a walk through the fields on both days, and that's good!

Some spring tulips painted on a textured and collaged background:

This evening we will be celebrating Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Gang who visit here.

Today I am sharing photos of a visit to a 'Chocolate Café' in the Altstadt of Düsseldorf, taken in the week before Easter in 2017. It is possible to drink coffee or tea there, but even I couldn't resist the delicious hot chocolate they were serving:

And yes, the home-made cake was delicious, too!

White hot chocolate:

"Give in to your hunger for chocolate without having a complex or false feelings of being guilty. Remember, no sensible human being is without a spark of madness!"

It was impossible to leave without buying delicious chocolate to take home:

A chocolate fountain:

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

Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

It's weekend - enjoy! I am slowly feeling more 'normal', whatever that might be, and as we had lots of sunshine I was able to take a walk and snap some photos with my phone. I'm still rather slow, but it will improve!

For Sheila's single flower theme at AJJ I have another hybrid journal page. I used a ready painted background and some painted bottles cut from an old painting. The lettering, bubbles and flower were added digitally:


And I have another tag for Michele's 'mostly monochrome' challenge at Tag Tuesday:

And these are the photos taken on my mostly sunny walk today:

There was a lot going on at the market:

Lots of trees are blossoming:

Spring in the shop windows:

I went into the Basilika and lit a candle:

Lots of spring flowers:

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