TIOT meets AJJ , MMM , 99 Faces and TSFT

Our new theme over at Try It On Tuesday is: 

Spots , Splashes  and Dots

my spread is also meant for the"Journeys" theme at Art Journal Journey 

and linked to
"Quotes" at Moo Mania & More.

 and pinned to  99 FACES (96)

Hello to all my friends at TSFT -
I always forget my camera at home when we meet with friends to have dinner outside, but on 
May 1th we made a little trip with friends to a big fleamarket and "Volkswagen" Meeting in 
Eggenburg (Lower Austria) and I thought about my camera.

I enjoyed the fleamarket

After the fleamarket, where we didn't buy anything, but loved to look at all the nice old things
we had fun at the VW ( manly VW beetle ) meeting....

I felt in love with the seablue model from 1966 as we had exactly the same car as I was a young kid.

I loved this special beetle covered all over with Austrian postage stamps  (2400 stamps!)

And those faux rusted Porsche .. amazing real .. you had to go near to see that it just was a special foil - fabulous!

After  all this we were very hungry and visited a  restaurant where we enjoyed
 Schnitzel , Lights ( yes - my friend Herta - left behind the big coke) took "Beuschel"  with bread dumplings - we call that "Beuschel mit Knödel" - something you don't get often nowadays in restaurants here - an old  viennese speciality)

and I had boiled beef with  horseradish with apples, potatoes and vegetable - one of my big favourite meals ever..sorry Elizabeth
all this is not meant for you as a vegetarian .. really sorry - forgive us.

Thank you for visiting froebelsternchen!!!


  1. Wow, Susi, you covered every base there is today. Very impressive a great way to make up for lost time. That face is wonderful, and those "splats" really DO look like spots or dots.

    That flea market was very enjoyable to see. I'm amazed at the goodies people get rid of. It was all so fun to peruse and I enjoyed it as much as I'm sure you did!

    OK, your meal looks disgusting! BUT, as long as YOU were happy with it, that's all that matters.

    I LOVED those old Beetles. I have a friend who has one to this day that looks the same style as the red and blue one. And my heart went pitter patter when I saw that rusty (faux rust) Porsche. Golly, even up close it looked real!

    Thanks for sharing your great art, the flea market, and your meal and drinks with us for T this Tuesday.

  2. Guten Morgen Susi,
    ich werde das jetzt mal Punkt für Punkt kommentieren ;-)
    Deine Journalseite ist super geworden, diese Weltkarte als Hintergrund zu verwenden gefällt mir sehr gut.
    Auf einem Flohmarkt würde ich auch nichts kaufen, aber es ist toll sich alles anzusehen und zu staunen, über manch alte Sachen, die man ewig nicht mehr gesehen hat, ich zum Beispiel vor einiger Zeit diese alten "Schellack-Schallplatten"
    Ein Wiener Schnitzel geht immer, vegetarisch hin oder her, da lege ich mich nicht fest ;-) und diese VW-Käfer sind einfach cool, ich hatte als ich gerade den Führerschein gemacht habe ein altes Modell BJ 1959, Wow wo sind die Zeiten geblieben.
    Summa summarum ein toller Beitrag.
    Schönen Tag für dich.
    Lg Sadie

  3. Die Journalseiten sind toll, und gleichzeitig für so viele Challenges, gut gemacht! Die Fotos sind sehr schön, und das Essen macht appetit, aber vielleicht nicht auf Beuschel!! Hugs, Valerie

  10. Beautiful page Susi, I just love the map design in the background! What a fabulous trip to the flea market! I'm the same way, I love to go look at the old things, but I rarely purchase anything! hugs :)

  11. A beautiful spread and wonderful photos.
    xxx Hazel.

  12. Love your face journaling today, and love seeing your photos too. That flea market looks great.What fun things- I guess people everywhere like to collect things and decided they don't need the anymore. And cool VW bug show. I love seeing all those old VWs. You rarely see them on the road any more here, but as a kid I remember seeing so many of them. Looks like you had a lot of fun going out. Happy T day-your lunches looks yummy. Hugs-Erika

  13. Look your splattery journal page Susi....I love splattering paint everywhere,very satisfying! The market and food looks fab too,bet you had a great time too ;)

  14. I absolutely LOVED seeing all of your flea market photos! The VW Bugs were my FAVS!!!! And your work of art is very gorgeous and thought provoking. Yes, life definitely is a journey and has it's ups and downs. Thank you so much for visiting my blog, too. Hugs!

  15. Die Flohmarktfotos sind ja klasse, dort wäre ich auf jeden Fall fündig geworden!
    ... und so super, diese knuffigen Käfer zu sehen - ich habe meinen Führerschein noch in einem Käfer gemacht! Der mit den Briefmarken Beklebte ist ja der Hammer!
    Aber auch deine Journalseiten sind wieder der Hammer, hast wieder ganz geschickt 3 Challenges miteinander verbunden!
    LG Ulrike

  16. looks like you're back into the swing of things Susi. Beautiful portrait and journal spread! Your outing looks like a lot of fun-so many different offerings. And those cars-wow! Glad you got to enjoy such a favorite meal too. Happy T day!

  17. so viel schönes hier... das 96. gesicht, die käfer... Flohmarkt geht immer, ob mit oder ohne kaufen, schon die Atmosphäre taugt mir... eine autorostfolie sehe ich auch zum ersten mal! und Tafelspitz mit Meerrettich bestelle ich mir auch gerne!
    hab eine schöne Woche!

  18. You have a knack for skillfully and artfully combining those challenges!!
    I wish I had been there for the VW's!!! My dad used to buy, fix up and sell VW's when I was a kid. My 3 of my first 4 cars were bugs, then I had a couple of VW Rabbits. Mr. G and I even had a VW pickup truck when we were first married. Our car died and my dad gifted us with the pickup. :)
    Happy T day!

  19. Adore your splashes Susi! As always beautiful inspiration!

  20. I love everything about this post! Your journal pages are delightful...always enjoy some artful splatters and a sweet thoughtful face. And flea markets are among my favorite things to do. Happy T day!!

  21. Love your splashed and spattered page Susi! The flea market and the beetles look like great fun! I'm not a great meat eater but a meal with family and friends is always good! Hugs, Chrisx

  22. Wonderful creation, Susi. Thanks for sharing the interesting photos.
    Hugs ❤

  23. Wowww, was für eine schöne Doppelseite. Einfach nur klasse.
    Der Flohmarkt scheint ja wirklich interessant gewesen zu sein. Cool finde ich die Autos, besonders das mit den Briefmarken.
    LG Carola

  24. What a lovely time you had...thank you for sharing the photos of all of the fun treasures and oh those beetle bugs!!!
    We are a VW family on both sides that goes back years and years.
    My Onkel Sepp and Onkel Zeno studied in Germany and moved to the US and opened a VW garage. I could go on and on. Mr M will enjoy your post later on too. The postage stamp one and that cool faux rust!!!!
    He was always a Carmen Ghia guy and enjoyed working on VW engines too. That was years ago...oh how time flies.
    I could have made a meal of those beautiful veggies and knodel ♥
    Happy T Day
    It is so much fun to see some of your surroundings.
    Oh and with all of your challenge abbreviations what a brain massage *gg*

  25. I enjoyed reading your post and looking at the photos of your outing. The fleamarket looks fun with all those old things. And the VW meeting would also be somethingI'd enjoy. I love Beetles, although I never had one. I spotted one with the split back window, which means it's probably the oldest one there.
    I did a double take when I saw that Porsche! It looks very realistic.
    Your meal looks delicious. (I'm not a vegetarian). I love a good schnitzel and in Austria they do them very well. I know what Knödel are but Beuschel? No idea.... (the photo does not give much of a clue).
    Thank you for visiting,
    Happy T-day,

  26. Great pages with an amazing background, Susi! Love the photos of the flea market, I'm sure there were lots of interesting things to see.

  29. Aaaah Susi as you can tell from my post i really do love me a good flea market or in my case a yard sale. Loved seeing everything you showed us. Hubby and i miss Yagerschnitzel from Germany. Its been many moons since we had one.. We were married in Copenhagen and spent the first three years of our marriage around the Kaiserslautern area in Germany. Many , many happy memories.. Love your post. Happy happy t day! Hugs! deb

  30. What a wonderful art journal page Susi - love how you have integrated the the various themes into the one page.
    It looks as though you had a great day out!! Love the VW's, and the faux rust on the Porsche!! ... the food looks wonderful!

  31. Loved reading your post Susi and seeing all the photos. Your dotty pages and face are gorgeous, such a great spread and the visit out looks amazing. I remember having a beetle car soon after I learnt to drive, it was a great run around. Xxx

  32. Hey Susi! I had been MIA because of cold and fever! I am back in action! Your spread is brilliant! Looks like you enjoyed the tour- the stamped covered card is extremely rare and cool! :)
    Suchi xx

  33. Life is absolutely a journey- Your face is fab,Susi!!
    Omgosh, I was drooling over here looking at all of those wonderful photos of the flea market!! How much fun!! And then the VW's!! Love the stamp covered one as well- too cool!! Ah, the blue one is beautiful for sure and made such sweet memories for you I'm sure!
    Then onto fabulous feasting!! WOW I am exhausted by the time i have finished this post- but what a fun trip to have taken with you!!
    Thanks Susi for sharing with us- I always love to see what my internet friends are doing in their part of the world!! huge hugs,Jackie

  34. Ach wie schön Susi daß du nach dem anstrengenden Brudersitting mal ein bißchen Flohmarkt schlendern und leckeres Essen genießen konntest. Der Briefmarkenkäfer ist der Hammer, aber auch die Rostoptik phänomenal echt.
    So einen blauen Käfer hatte ein Bekannter in meiner Jugend, den durfte ich einmal fahren zu Karneval, weil ich die Einzige war, die keinen Alkohol getrunken hatte. Schnee lag auch noch, aber ich habs gepackt.
    Deine Journalseiten sehen auch wieder so schön aus, klasse die Textur der karte im Gesicht, das hat Was.
    Liebe Grüße und eine erholsame Restwoche.

  35. Beautiful journal spread, fun fair, old bugs, and a good meal--wow!
    My dad had a Beetle when we were kids in the 60s. I loved that little car--except when we traveled cross country with three kids in the back seat! ;)

  36. What a stunning page spread, Susi - the face is magnificent, with such life in the expression, and I love the dramatic black spatter.

    I've always been a huge Beetle-lover, so that's my favourite bit of the flea-market, though it looks as though there were lots of interesting things - and delicious schnitzel too!

  37. How fun! I love your page, love all of the pics from the flea market. The VW's- we do not see too many beetles on the roads now a days.... so fun to see this collection of them, and love the one with the postage stamps : ) My family had a VW van when I learned how to drive, so learned on a stick shift...... Your dinner looks delightful! Looks like a fab day!

  38. Your journal page is really beautiful, love the colours.

  39. Oh great and I love all those splatters and splashes. Look like you had a great day at the flea market too!

  40. It looks like you had an interesting day! And I love your art!

  41. All in all quite the outing. The old VW's are terrific. How did you walk away from that flea market with nothing??? And lovely food with friends, that's what it's all about. xox
