Tuesday- Wednesday Post

 Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well.

Today I have an A3 Mixed media collage page using washi tapes, wrapping paper and tissue papers from Jane Davenport. I started this when I was in the clinic, back in March, and 'discovered' it while trying to clear the many layers from my kitchen table. I finished it off with some stenciling and a sentiment, and decided to post it before I lose it again....

Last week I showed lots of the ancient buildings in Düsseldorf, this time I'm taking you to the new 'Media  Harbour'  with the fabulous buildings from star architect Frank Gehry:

The radio tower:

A bridge across to Oberkassel:

The house of the County Parliament:

The Triangle Bridge:

An old crane:

The beautiful Gehry buildings, crooked and with mirrored fronts:

The 'Flossis' climbing the house on the other side were made by an artist called Rosalie. In the meantime they have been taken down as they were starting to crumble. This photo was taken a few years back:

That's all for today, have a great one, 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 was hot and humid again, but not as bad as last time! I have been trying to clear up some of my stash and get my table ready to use again, but I still have a few layers to go before I can see the table top!

This evening we are beginning a new challenge at Tag Tuesday, and this time I am hosting. My theme is 'vintage'. As always, you have 2 weeks to join us, and tags of all formats are welcome. Hope to see YOU there. Our challenge goes live at 9 p.m. this evening.

My tag was made with some left over designer paper glued onto recycled card. The burlap and other pieces were all scraps from my stash, the little girl is an image from gecko Galz:

And then I magicked it onto a journal page and am joining Mia's butterfly challenge at AJJ:

Today is also Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party, so here a warm welcome to the nice ladies of the T Gang who visit here.

It's good to be able to drink my cappuccino at the Rhine again:

Pineapple upside-down cake - help yourselves, there's plenty there:

And a few pics from town and from my balcony:

The pavement is being dug up for new drainage, and I was pleased to see that all of the trees had been protected to prevent accidental damage:

I went into the Basilica to light a candle again for a friend:

My herbs are doing very well:

This strange plant is a juncus spiralis, and is growing very fast. No, it's not usually on the armchair, I just needed more light to take a photo:

And a funny from FB:

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