Taking a summer break

Hi Everybody!

June has sped by much too quickly And we are heading towards  July. In a few weeks the shops will be full of Halloween decorations and a few weeks after that the Christmas decorations will be everywhere.

But in the meantime I'm planning on having a break for the whole of July. At the moment I have 2 or 3 days where I feel more or less normal, then I get violent shivering fits and my temperature soars and I feel really ill for some days. This seems to be caused by my auto-immune illness. Anyway, to cut a long story short, I am taking time off till the beginning of August. I have one more tag for Sandie's holiday challenge at Tag Tuesday; this is what I want to do for the next 4 weeks:

Have a great month, take care, 
And I'll be back soon!

New challenge at Tag Tuesday

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday, and this time our lovely and talented Sandie is hosting. She helps a lot with the admin etc, too, for which I am very thankful. 

She has chosen  Holidays /Travel as her theme, very fitting for this time of year when many people go on vacation. As always, you have 2 weeks to link to us, and tags of all formats are welcome.

I chose Paris as my theme, as that's always a great place to spend some time. The first one has a stamped background, which was layered and sewed. The small pictures are from Crafty Individuals:

The second tag is made with an imge from gecko Galz which was stamped with stamps and stamps! This was also layered and sewn:

This one was a scan, so the colours are paler:

We have had ver changeable weather, from super hot to wild and stormy:

The evening sky:

And some funnies:

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

T sTands for Tuesday on Monday

Hi Everybody!

The weekend is over and gone and a new week is beginning - let's hope it will be a good one. Today I have another fishy painting to share for Mia's Fish challenge at AJJ. This is another A3 acrylic painting showing a friendly and colourful fish, living in a happy sea:

Here is my friend Heike at the Rhine:

This evening we will start celebrating Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party, so here a warm welcome to all of the other ladies who join us at the party. Today I have some coffee funnies for you:

A friend celebrated her birthday last week, and I was invited to a wonderful dinner at the Schnellenburg, a very nice restaurant directly next to the Rhine. Her brother and sister in law were there, too, and we had wonderful food and a lovely evening:

I sat right next to the window opposite Heike so I could watch the Rhine and the ships passing by:

Some funnies:

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

Thursday/Friday Post

Hi Everybody!

Hope your week is going well! Today I am sharing an A4 painted fish made for Mia's challenge at AJJ. The background is cream, and the fish in real life a bit lighter, but I had to take the photos with my smartphone as I can't find my camera. It's always awful if you clear up because then you can't find anything! I think this fish is the partner the lover lady fish was looking for!

I will also be linking to Nicole's FFO and Gillena's Friday fun

Some funnies:

It's a boy!

And this week my dear and much loved water pen, which I bought back in 2004,  started to leak, and I had to get rid of it. I have done so much with this brush it's really hard to lose it.  I do have a few more ready to be used, this one was just my favourite. Silly, but true!.

A cloudy sunrise:

I  was awake very early and watched the sun rise through the clouds. Then I made myself a coffee and went back to bed and slept for another 3 hours!


Lots of people enjoying the hot weather:

And ducks enjoying  the water:

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