T sTands for Tuesday and new challenge at Tag Tuesday

Hi Everybody!

Hope all is well with you. Another weekend has flown by and a new week is here. let's hope it will be better than the last one.

At Tag Tuesday we are starting a new challenge, beginning this evening at 9.30 pm. This time our lovly and talented Wendy is hosting and has chosen 'add a pocket' as her theme. So any theme or type of Tag is welcome, it must just have a pocket on it. As always our challenges run for 2 weeks and tags of all formats that follow the theme are welcome. I'm looking forward to seeing what YOU make.  This is my digital tag:

For Matilde's birds challenge at AJJ I have a hybrid piece put together from various photos, die-cuts, leaves and  drawings, with the colours digitally altered:

This evening we will be celebrating Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party, where we meet up with various ladies from across the globe, so a hearty welcome to all of the nice ladies who visit here. We went out for a meal again, so once again we enjoyed alcohol-free white beer:

And here and there I needed to drink a coffee:

And some funnies:

Ooops, I just realised I AM old - I can start misbehaving straightaway!

Last week I showed pics of the big flea-market in Neuss, a neighbouring town. Today I have some photos showing the past history of the town, going back to the time of the Romans:

The little river which runs through the town:

The old walls were built by the Romans and 'improved' in the middle ages:

This is the Hamtor, one of the few surviving Roman arches there:

Some models showing the town in Roman times:

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

Weekend Post

Hi Everybody!

Just a short post today, I am still reeling from what happened in Uvalde and the big meeting of the gun lobby. Sometimes it's almost too much to take in! 

Today I have another spotty-dotty piece with a rather colourful lady who looks sad. Not my fave piece, but here it is, an A3 piece painted with acrylics:

The photos were taken from my balcony over the past couple of weeks, I never got round to uploading them to my computer. Okay, I just forgot them!

Pigeons on the tree top:

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