T stands for Snow

Hi Everybody!

Today we are starting a new challenge at Tag Tuesday.
Our lovely Joan is hosting and has chosen
Christmas Memories as her theme.
As always, tags of all formats are welcome.
This time the challenge will be running for 3 weeks
instead of the usual 2, and the next one will start on 
January 2nd 2018.

I made a simple tag, which reminds me of my
childhood. At school I loved singing carols,
and when we went singing to collect
money for charity we wore old fashioned
coats and bonnets, which inspired my
tag today. I used DP for the BG and the little
girl is vintage German scrap:




Today is also Elizabeth's T stands for Tuesday
so I would like to welcome all the nice ladies of the T Gang.
My drink is, as always, cappuccino,
served today with lemon cake:


Yesterday we had a snow blizzard which lasted for
5 hours, so I had to stay home again. I took the photos 
through the window:












Somebody didn't put the sunshade away!




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

Christmas / winter holidays at Simon Challenge Blog

Hi Everybody!

It's time for a new challenge at the
Simon Monday blog!
This is my second week as guest DT,
and I am happy to be joining the fabulous
team there!


The theme this week is Christmas / winter holidays.





One entry is chosen each week and can win a
fabulous voucher for the store.


For this week's challenge I made 
 a wreath for my door. The substrate was made with twigs from a willow tree, soaked in water to make them more pliable and then bound into a circle. ( I cut the twigs on one of my walks!)The leaves were recycled from old decorations, and sprayed with silver. I used hot glue to hold things together. I used ribbons and decorative wires to wind around it. The cherub was cast in a mold and the flowers were cut using a Tim Holtz Tattered Floral Die.







Hope to see YOU joining in the challenge!

I have some more cold and snowy Photos for you:













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

Snowy Saturday

Hi Everybody!

It's a freezing cold day here. We had a lot of snow in
the night, and it's been snowing more this morning,
so I've declared it to be a stay-home-and-keep-warm
day. I'm not as steady on my legs as I was a year ago, 
and I don't want to slip and hurt myself. The pics were 
taken early this morning; standing in the cold taking
photos in your pyjamas is a great way to wake
up quickly. The snow will probably be gone by
tomorrow!

I have another of my heads to share today. This is 
number 6 in this series, and probably the last one for
 the time being, but who knows? I did make quite
a lot of other ones in the course of the year, so
perhaps I will put them together to make a collage.
The quote is from Harry Potter  and the Order of
the Phoenix by J.K.Rowling:

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