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!

  2. Such a fun tag - I love it! I can imagine the little ballerina dancing to that song too - perfect ­čśü. Your radio inspiration made me smile, I asked my hubby as I just couldn't decide what to do ...lol! The spring flowers and views look amazing too, and your lilacs are beautiful. Take care and happy wishes! Hugs, Jo x

    1. Thanks Jo. It's strange not being able to decide a simple thing like that! Glad your hubby helped you! Hugs, Valerie

  3. i am not a huge fan of Julie Andrews but I don't dislike her either. In her day she had a fine voice and made her mark, of course, in "The Sound of Music" alongside that handsome Canadian, Christopher Plummer! Let me recount a little anecdote. Several years ago, Miriam's daughter was the official photographer for the Stratford Festival here in Ontario, and she did a photo shoot of Christopher Plummer. At one point she said to him, "Okay, Mr Plummer, let's go for your good side", to which he replied,"My dear, I only have good sides!" Wish I had just one good side! As for you, you Beauteous, Balconia Bombshell, I bet they coined the phrase "good side" based on you! I think you should have donned a tutu and used your own image for the tag. You could have mass produced it and sold millions! As usual the streets, pathways, meanders, detours, culs de sac, water, trees, blooms and buttresses all look enticing. One day, when COVID is but a memory, perhaps I will visit Germany and you will take me for a walk. I'll buy the coffee! Hugs and kisses. David

    1. Hi David! Yes, Julie Andrews had a good voice, but I just didn't like her way of singing and preening etc. Perhaps I was just jealous! I didn't know Plummer was a Canadian, but he evidently had plenty of confidence and charm! I don't think I have any sides that are good these days, my best features are always my shoes! I had a great walk this morning, it's getting greener from day to day and the birds were singling their little throats out, bless them! I hope one day Covid will really be just a memory. It's a long time since I took someone for a walk along the garden path.... Big hugs to you both!

    2. Well, if I am taken up the garden path, it should be with you!

  6. A sweet tag, Valerie! The cat is so into the music and her dance...in the zone as they say. I like how you’ve down toned the center of that background with just a hint of the many backup dancers. Cats do insist on center stage.

    1. Thanks Annie, cats are definitely always centre stage! My Kitty used to dance like that when she was trying to catch flies, but without a tutu!

  7. What a fabulous post! I adore that happy dancing cat - as for Julie Andrews I can take her or leave her..but...I do love the Sound Of Music! Your Spring photos are wonderful - we seem to have a lot of dandelions this year at the sides of roads - I think they look great but I imagine it's only because they're not mowing so much. Lovely to see blue skies - and sky trails - we have had a few more planes taking off recently - lots of trails in the sky at Tatton last week. Have a good week, Chrisx

  8. That is such a fun tag Valerie. The dancing kitty made me smile. And there are some beautiful spring bloom photos also. Lucky you to have a vase of lilacs in your home also. They must smell wonderful. Enjoy (hopefully) your beautiful weather. Hugs-Erika

    1. Thanks Erika! The neighbour along the road saw me sniffing at his lilacs and half an hour later he brought me a big bunch, so kind! The weather is sunny but still very cold. From tomorrow we're expecting rain and clouds!

  32. I love that dancing kitty and she looks as if she's dreaming of the 'purrfect' partner, so sweet.
    Lovely Spring photos, our weather has turned very cold so there's lots of buds just waiting for some warm sunshine before they open - I don't blame them!
