Thursday/Friday post

Hi Everybody!

Hope your day is going better than mine. I had a nasty fall this morning (Wednesday), and now I'm hurting in places I never knew I had, but it will pass! 

Today I have 2 pieces to share. The first is a journal page meant for AJJ, where Chris and Erika have taken over Eileen's theme of inspired by, as Eileen is sadly no longer with us.  This page was inspired by using up leftovers. The background was painted, textured and stamped, and was a part of a huge piece made some time back. The head was very fussily cut from a magazine, it was a lot of work, and I didn't get rid of all the white bits!
Anyway, it is as it is! I am also linking to Paint Party Friday.

And for Tag Tuesday , my theme of anything goes, I made a tag book, using up a set of tags printed onto paper. I glued them onto some cardboard tags I cut to fit them, with pictures front and back. I used some crackle varnish on the images, but it didn't crackle well, perhaps it's too old.

First some photos from the super moon. I watched it coming over the horizon behind the airport, so beautiful:

On my walks:

I love how flowers push their way through cracks in walls and paving stones:

My favourite cherry tree in the park of the Diakonie:

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

New Challenge at TIOT

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at TIOT, and this time our theme is
'inspired by a song'.
As always, projects of all formats are welcome, and you have 2 weeks to join us. Have a look at the lovely projects of my teamies at our blog!

I made a tag, inspired by Julie Andrew's song, 'I could have danced all night'. Strange, as I am neither a fan of her or this song. I was just thinking about what to do and the song was played on the radio - fate! I am also linking to Tag Tuesday, anything goes:

And a few spring photos:

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

T sTands for This and ThaT

Hi Everybody!

Hope you all had a good and safe weekend, and that your week will be wonderful, too. I had a restful weekend, enjoyed my walks, and also my time just pottering about at home.

For our theme of 'inspired by' at AJJ I have a hybrid piece. Erika and Chris are hosting using Eileen's theme, as she is sadly no longer with us. I was inspired by coffee and Leonardo - what else?! Leda is longing for her morning coffee....

This is also meant for Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party, which begins on Monday evening, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Gang who visit here. The shops are always full of tempting items:

Here at the restaurant only take-away is allowed:

The weather was sunny, but cold:

The flower boxes are always well kept:

The way home along our street:

And a neighbour has a palm tree - in winter it's always wrapped in burlap:

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