Clouds and Tags

The prompt for this week over at the OUR BEAUTIFUL WORLD blog is CLOUDS. I have lost count of how many times I have photographed clouds over the valley here at the cottage in France. Every day I open the front door and look out over the valley and the view is different. Sometimes we are in the clouds, and the world around us is very hazy, sometimes we are above a low layer of clouds and the valley is gone, just mysterious little humps sticking up out of the whiteness. Sometimes the clouds are so very angry, black and grey and threatening a huge storm, and sometimes they are so beautifully coloured by the rising sun that it brings tears to my eyes. So here is just a random selection -

So many different moods, yet all taken from more or less the same place in the garden.

I have also unpacked the rest of my craft supplies and finished organising the craftavan. Had to, lol, desperately needed tags to send out with Etsy orders. And I also managed the tag for this week's Tag Tuesday. The theme was DOLLS. I decided to make a little paper and lace doll and attach it to a tag -

She has the sweetest face and I used her on some customer tags as well -

I made a Pierrot tag to go with the Pierrot tin as well -

I made a few more, but forgot to take pics before they went on their way.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, especially those of you who were celebrating Mothers Day yesterday ( UK had it ages ago ). Have a great week,

Hello Liz,

As you say, so many different moods from your cloud photographs and amazing that they were taken from the same spot. Cloud watching can be so therapeutic as one watches them drift by over the sky. You have managed to capture some fabulous images!

Your French style gift tags look so pretty. They would decorate any present so beautifully and, of course, can be kept as a lovely reminder for the future.
