TGIF

Hi Everybody!

It's Friday and that means the weekend is almost here! Enjoy!

Today I am sharing a journal page meant for Mia's challenge at AJJ, butterflies. The butterfly lady is another image from Gecko Galz:



And I have a tag for Michele's faces challenge at Tag Tuesday. The image is from Mischief Circus:



I am also linking to Paint Party Friday

Some of my sky photos from 2020:















Here you can see the moon and Jupiter:







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

  2. I love all that intense color on your journal page! It really draws me in to have a look around. I like the face art piece also. She makes me wonder what it is she is seeing or thinking. Very nice photos.

  11. Oh My, Valerie, you have begun with the right note for me this morning with your call for everyone to appreciate wildlife in all its forms, and in the process come to a better understanding of our fellow humans. Then you follow with that enigmatic face, in some respects a little haunting, though tempered by experience and containing the mystery of the ages, knowing much but saying little. All of this is encapsulated in the unknown of the skies above us with unimaginable distances, and stars and galaxies beyond what our minds can comprehend. It is a fitting theme as we approach the summer solstice later this month. Hugs and kisses. David

    1. Thanks, David, I'm glad you like my wise words! I think most people don't even try to understand themselves, let alone other people and wildlife. The sky is always a source of delight for me, the view from my window is really the best thing in my shabby apartment! I felt very bad yesterday, had a reaction to the Vaccination, felt like I had flu. It's a bit better today, so that's good. But I'm having a rest day! Hope you have a wonderful day, take care of yourself. Is Miriam still forcing you to do garden work?! Hugs to you both!

    2. Sorry to hear you have not been feeling well, Valerie, and hope that you quickly improve. Miriam is an unremitting taskmistress and I am working my poor fingers to the bone!

    3. I want to see 👀 a photo of those bony fingers! I am enjoying resting and reading today!

  17. I want to first say I just love the new header Valerie. It is wonderful. So are your latest journal page and tag. The face on the tag is quite eye catching, and your page is stunning. I love the quote. Wish more people cared about wildlife, but sadly it seems so many people are ignorant. And your sky photos are amazing. You have some really good shots. Enjoy the weekend. Hugs-Erika

    1. Thanks Erika! The cows graze in the field at the end of the road, I love watching them. So many people don't care about our world and all that is in it, they need to wake up before it's too late! Happy weekend! Hugs!

    1. Thanks Tracy. Blogger has really been playing silly buggers lately, so many things have changed, and keep changing. I wonder why they never bother to say what they are doing? Have a great weekend, take care! Hugs!

  31. Your butterfly lady is very elegant and I do like how you have framed her with the composition which is just perfect. The colours are so complimentary to one another.
    Great tag with that face and the photos, as always, are superb. I always think how they would make a lovely calendar. It would be hard to choose which ones though.
