Quick Saturday Post

Hi Everybody!

Have a great weekend, enjoy and stay safe!

Today I am sharing a tag made for Pinkie's 'flowers' challenge at Tag Tuesday. I used lots of scraps to make it:

And I have some photos taken in our neighbouring town of Duisburg:

A reminder of the history of coal mining there:

Have a great Saturday, take care,

and thanks a lot for coming by!

Thursday/Friday Post

Hi Everybody!

Yesterday I showed the last journal page for Alison's challenge at AJJ, and today I am showing the very last one. Once again sunflowers play a big role in my summer:

And I have another one of my strange book-print faces inspired by Karen O'Brien:

I collaged it using a magazine cut out and an older journal page:

I am linking to Paint Party Friday

And I have more photos of my summer walk through Neuss:

There is a street by the Quirinus Minster where the Mint used to be, and these huge 'coins' have been set into the  cobbled pavement:

A town gate from the middle ages, which now houses a museum:

And after walking so much, I needed a cappuccino in my fave cafe:

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

Hi Everybody! 

We had another very wet and stormy day here, the weather is crazy everywhere. And in Leverkusen, a town between here and Köln there was a huge explosion in a chemical factory there, with people killed and missing, and huge black clouds poisoning the air. 

Today I am sharing another woven piece made just for fun:

Today I am sharing some photos from our neighbouring town of Neuss. The town goes back to the Romans, who called it Novaesium.
It's still possible to walk along the old walls and enjoy the shade:

I love the manhole covers there:

A town model:

The model again with the Hamtor Roman arch in the background:

Love the mural on the house wall:

A beautiful door:

I will show more photos next time.
Have a great day, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
