T-Stands for Memories on Biology Lessons

I wasn't a very interested schoolgirl - but I liked some subjects  much more than others. Biology was a neutral zone for me since I found it quite interesting and one thing I learned each year again was a simple form of the  Recapitualation Theory.  This will be in my head forever!

I painted a little watercolor birdie in one of my Altered Books which happens to be an old book about  natural sciences and wrote down the sentence about embryonic development and evolution that our teacher repeated so often. 

It's meant for Elizabeth's lovely theme of BACK TO SCHOOL over at

And today is T-STANDS-FOR -TUESDAY as well.
I hope you like poppy-seed strudel or walnut strudel which I can offer you this week . 

Thank you for visiting me today!


  1. was für ein keckes Vögelchen. Du schaffst Kunstwerke mit einigen Pinselstrichen! Großartig!
    Liebe Grüße

  2. What a gorgeous wee bird Susi, and a great spread. Iwill take the walnut strudel thanks :-)

  3. WOW was für eine geniale Seite, irre gemacht. Das Vögelchen gefällt mir sehr.

    Viele liebe Grüße
    von Anke

    Ps.: Da ich Mohn nicht so gerne mag, entscheide ich mit für den leckeren Walnussstrudel, herzlichen Dank !!!

  4. Beautiful journal spread, love the birdie, and thanks for the cake, I have taken a slice of each....looks great! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  5. amazingly drawn ,biology was my favorite subject too it made me visit insidious world of living things

  6. Liebe Susi,
    tolles Biologiebuch ;-) aber
    der Strudel schaut auch lecker aus,
    ich würde den mit Nuss bevorzugen ;-)
    Lg und einen gemütlichen Tag, hoffentlich hört es bald
    zu regnen auf.

  7. Love your sweet birdie on this fun page Susi, lovely choice of book too. Your strudel looks yummy!

  8. Ah love the little birdie Susi, I loved biology not so much physics or chemistry though!
    Oooh the strudel looks mouth watering :)

  9. Es ist schon erstaunlich, an welche Sätze man sich aus der Schulzeit erinnert...und du hast alles wieder klasse festgehalten in rot-blau auf passendem Papier! Dein süßes Vögelchen staunt auch. LG Ulrike

  10. Beautiful and cute AJ page Susi! Thanks for the Strudels...they look yummmm!! :)

  11. Wow, Susi, I had never heard of the Recapitulation theory, so had to look it up. It's fun to learn something new each day, and I learned this theory today. I certainly love your birdie and the way you outlined your spread. It's the little details that make all the difference.

    I truly LOVE that you are back home and sharing T with us, too. I'd love to join you for tea and poppy seed strudel. It looks marvelous.

    Thanks for sharing your AJJ art and your great strudel and tea with us for T this Tuesday.

  12. I'll take the strudel- it looks like a slice for my breakfast right now would be perfect. Compared to my usual breakfast drink. What your biology teacher used to say is so funny because my teacher used to say the same thing, but I never say it. Great little bird...glad to see you back and looks like you had a great little visit with Valerie. All that coffee you both drank. :) Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  13. Terrific journal pages Susi. Never heard of the theory so must look for that.

    The strudel looks fantastic and I have so enjoyed seeing you enjoying life with Valerie

    Love Chrissie xx

  14. I forgot to tell you how much I understand that your time is limited this month. After everything not blog or art worthy I've been through the past three months, I can totally empathize. Please don't think I don't understand, because I truly do!

  15. sweet little birdie :) I used to like biology too. Your strudels look delicious!! I used to make them but not any longer-they are so time consuming! Hope you're settling back in after that wonderful trip to see Valerie. Happy T day!

  16. Your little bird is such a cutie! I love the colours and how the piece flows around the page - wonderful! The strudel looks yummy and delicious! I'll swap you a piece of my Victoria Sponge for a piece of your poppy strudel, it would be perfect with my mid-morning cup of tea! Wishing you a Happy T Day! J :-)

  17. A quick visit to say, the pages and the bird look lovely, as does that studel. I'd love a piece with my cuppa.

  18. Biology was one of my favorite subjects too! Along with English but you can have math...lol Great journal page my T friend. Hugs! deb

  19. Ummm gorgeous strudel... thank you for sharing liebe Susi!
    Your birdie is sweet/tweet!
    Subjects like that make my eyes glaze over *gg*
    I know I have missed alot while I was busy working away from the computer. Missed you and your creativity.
    Happy T Day oxo

  20. Oh I tuned out of Biology when the class was supposed to dissect frogs...I just couldn't do it!

  21. Fun AJJ page, funny how things we learned, and thought useless at the time, have stuck in our heads for years!!

    The comment you left about the washer being self employed had me had me laughing.....so true!!

    Happy T-day

  22. That strudel looks amazing! I wish I could buy poppy seeds in a large quantity as I'd love to make some pastries or cakes with it. Yours looks very yummy! Well done!
    Your biology page looks great. I remember learning about that theory.
    Happy T-Day,

  23. your strudels look delicious! I will the that recapitulation theory to you, nice work though!

  24. I love that sweet bird, and yes, please I'd like a poppy seed treat ;) Happy T Tuesday!

  25. ohja,biologie mochte ich auch sehr,dein vögelchen ist soooo süss,und von dem leckren nusstrudel möchte ich bitte ein stück:-)
    einen schönen abend susi.

    lieben gruß jenny

  26. Susi....thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment! I'm glad I stopped by yours! I love your little water color birdie on your altered book pages. I enjoyed reading your blog post and boy, could I relate to not particularly being fond of science in school! I really like how you combined the watercolor bird on the pages of a natural science book and then included the sentences that your old biology teacher used to say all the time to the point where you've remembered them over the years!

  27. Deine Seite ist wunderschön, süßes Vögelchen. Gefällt mir wieder sehr gut.
    Also ich nehme dann mal den Mohnstrudel :) hmmm lecker.
    LG Carola

  28. I love your cute bird Susi! I always preferred the science subjects!
    Alison xx

  29. Love the bird and the Strudel looks so yummy!!!!! Thanks for sharing with us.

  30. Your little bird is so sweet and clever although I don't know what he is saying, but I'm sure it is wise!
    Strudel looks delicious, I don't think I have ever eaten a Strudel.

  31. Wow - selbstgebackener Mohn- und Nussstrudel, lecker! Ich komm mal rüber :)
    Biologie - bei uns Naturgeschichte - mochte ich auch sehr gerne! Diesen Satz von der Evolution kannte ich noch nicht, du hast rundherum ein kleines Kunstwerk geschaffen, das Vöglein ist ja so süß!
    LG Rike

  32. Toller Spruch den du dir da gemerkt hast und der kleine Vogel ist so süß. Ich nehm dann auch etwas Mohnstrudel, mh lecker. Ich hab den auch schon mit Mandelmasse gemacht, Haselnüsse vertrage ich nicht so gut. Ich will in den nächsten Tagen mal wieder ein Früchte und Nußbrot machen mit Ingwer und Zimt gewürzt.
    Liebe Grüße

  33. als ex-biolehrerin kann ich nur sagen: volle Punktzahl!
    und die strudel kannst du gerne rüberwachsen lassen... ich nehm´s nicht so genau mit den Kalorien wie du *g* (warum eigentlich? nachdem ich die Fotos auf val´s blog gesehen habe, frage ich mich das wirklich).

  34. Yummy treat and a great page...your little birdies always make me smile.
    Sorry I'm so late in visiting...

  35. I shall have a slice of the walnut strudel thank you!! Yummy! xoxo
