Hi Everybody!

First of all I would like to thank all you lovely girls who linked to my  anything goes challenge at AJJ, I was overwhelmed by all of the wonderful entries, so many ideas, styles and colours - fabulous! And a big thank you to my teamies who supported me so well.

This is my last entry for AJJ. I started this page a few years back, and last week I finished it, wonders never cease! It's an A4 watercolour and ink sketch, the birds were stenciled:

I love this dog:

And these 3, too:

I am linking to Nicole's FFO and
Gillena's Friday art fun.

I bought this dark chocolate last week. It's very delicious, and it's a bit dearer than others, but  each bar that's sold provides a meal for hungry people: 

I will be back tomorrow as we are starting a new challenge with a new host at AJJ.
See you then!

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

Thursday Post

Hi Everybody!

Just a quick post today, I have an appointment with my neurologist and she is on the other side of town, so I need to get moving!

Today I am sharing a piece made with a magazine cut out, which I collaged and altered. I was thinking about getting older, and the changes it makes in us. I added scraps of paper to one side of her face and hair, and an eye, which looks rather myopic, cut from a drawing I made.  I faded some of the pictures, too - perhaps the feeling of fading away. I am linking to my anyting goes challenge at AJJ:

And some funnies / thinkies:

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

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

Midweek Post

Hi Everybody!

This was the view out of my window this morning - thick frost after a very cold night. I'm hoping we soon get sprng back!

And this was yesterday's beautiful sunrise:

And now I would like to show you another of the wonderful birds of Balconia-by-the- Rhine. This is a very shy bird, which is perhaps why so many people haven't spotted it. It's usually called the Fatboy bird. Yes, perhaps an unkind expression, but this bird is fat! He flies once a year to the North Pole and needs the fat to keep him going. His mate is always much smaller and rather dowdy, and prefers to stay home in the nest.

I am hoping that our David, AKA the Bird Man of Ontario, can tell me the latin name of this most interesting specimen.

I can never get enough of sunrise and sunset photos:

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

T sTands for coffee

 Hi Everybody!

Here's wishing us all a good, new week.

This evening we will be celebrating Elizabeth's T sTands for Tuesday link party, so here a warm welcome to all of the nice ladies of the T Gang who visit here. I have made a journal page, also meant for my anything goes challenge at AJJ, and of course it is all about coffee. The mug and coffee pot were die-cut from photos taken of sunrise as seen from my balcony :

And a nice cup of tea for the tea-drinkers, enjoy!

And so that nobody stays hungry or thirsty I have some more food and drinks:

Lino cuts / prints

Delicious cakes from a Greek friend:

Summer meals:

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