T sTands for This and ThaT

Hi Everybody!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend! Here it was very cold but with sunshine all day, so just right for walking!

Today I have a piece to share for Sheila's single flower challenge at AJJ:



And some of the single flowers I have taken pics of in the past days:







Today is also 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 here.
My drink is almost always cappuccino, so here some memories from the good old days:










Last week I baked cinnamon rolls at the clinic, they didn't last long!


Yesterday I baked a banana, chocolate chip and walnut cake. I forgot to take a pic, and by the time I remembered, it was too late, all gone!

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

  4. This is a great page Valerie. I like how you used that flower. Very clever. Its nice your clinic has these fresh flowers. That's a spirit booster. And your cinnamon roles look really yummy. I can see why they disappeared so quickly. Hope you have a great start to the new week and happy early T day too. Hugs-Erika

  6. So much happiness but my eyes zeroed right in on the coffee! I love your single roses - especially the red one by the door :) GORGEOUS and colorful craft project - she reminds me of the 80's girls you see in the videos! YUMMY cinnamon rolls! Hugs!

  7. Sounds like your baking is much appreciated at the clinic.
    Beautiful flower photos, love the red one glowing in the light there.
    Another beautiful art piece too Valerie.

  8. With all your baking they won't want you to leave! They might offer you a job in the kitchen, Head Baker! Seeing your simple pleasures of a cappuccino in a café, who would have thought these strange days would just keep rolling along? Hugs, Deb

  9. What a fabulous journal page for Sheila's theme at AJJ. I absolutely love her hair. And I like how you positioned the flower. Speaking of flowers, those you photographed from the clinic are stunning. It must be fun to be surrounded by such beauty. And the clinic is going to be sad when you go home because you contribute SO much, like the cinnamon rolls.

    Oh for those days again when we could go out like you did when you took photos of your cappuccinos in the village. It seems SO long ago since this pandemic started and yet, it's only been a year. Thanks for sharing these photos of drinks from days gone by with us for T this Tuesday. Yes, I will link you, dear.

  13. This is so dramatic with the lady in black, the colourful background and the flower looking just like its beautiful self.
    Great photos of the cafe past, this cafe looks delightful, and bright and airy.
    Your cinnamon rolls look delicious.
    Thanks very much for your Single Flowers, both arty and real.

  14. Single flowers in many variations, Valerie, and all beautiful, from your artwork to the real things. Wouldn't it have been fortuitous in the image above where there are two flowers in the vase next to your cup if there had been only one? This week you will return home and I hope that the long stay in the clinic has left you refreshed and reinvigorated, ready to face the world with new determination, free from the demons both physical and mental that might have tormented you in the past. Spring has arrived and with it the annual surge in hope that accompanies warm sun, gentle breezes and long hours of light. May you be well, my dear friend. Hugs and kisses. David

    1. Thanks David! I was looking forward to going home, but on Thursday I will be transferred to another department of the hospital as my pancreas is still making problems and I may have to be operated on. So I will have to be patient for a few days more! Not good news, but what has to be done has to be done! Take care, hugs to you both!

  33. I was not expecting what came before my eyes as I scrolled down your page but what a beautiful page it is. I love the face with the wild hair and then the single flower head beneath it. Absolutely fabulous!
    So enjoyed the flower you took photographs of. I love tulips and even as they open and begin to "flop" I find them beautiful.
