well, the holidays already seem like a distant memory and my creativity pretty much stopped with the wall painting, nevertheless it's done! But by far the most exciting thing to happen was the arrival of these lovelies in my part of the world, none other than my blogging buddy Patty and her Mr Magpie, I'm under strict instructions NOT to show the pics I took, they're a little camera shy...
we walked and walked and walked and I saw the city of Zürich with fresh eyes, how those two never fell over I just don't know, they were always looking every which way but forward! I saw beauty in things I take for granted and Mr Magpie lived up to his name by demonstrating his ability to spot treasures at fifty paces! We didn't have time to make any art (too busy walking and sampling cheesy delights...) but their wonderful visit inspired my journal page. Under all that paint are tickets, labels, receipts and my found stuff.
Swan lover Patty spotted them everywhere, who would have thought Zürich had so many?! More swans than any of us knew, in the lake, on buildings, swan shaped water fountains, statues, signs and more! I think she found every one and it was only the fact that she had to clear Customs that stopped her taking them all home with her!
Where would Patty be without her tea?! Watch out for her Tea Tuesday posts as the cup (safely covered with bubble wrap!) has seen some miles and sampled the very best of Switzerland!
What a pleasure to meet you both, yay!to Blogland and the lovely friendships it brings!
