Post No 2111 .......Magical Shopping Tours and more

We have a new theme over at TRY IT ON TUESDAY :  TRANSPORT Anything you can take a ride on or in. / Wir haben ein neues Thema bei TRY IT ON TUESDAY : Transport -Irgendwas worin oder worauf du dich fortbewegen kannst.

 I came up with a spread in one of my Altered Books made with used teabags  and labels  that I collected from my daughter Julia's purchases. We had , as so often a 
together. We mostly take our car and drive to Vienna to have a fantastic shopping day there.
It's all very exciting for us - all the shops the young folk loves are there - like paradise for a sweet sixteen teenie.
Ich hab eine Doppelseite in einem meiner Altered Books gewerkelt mit gebrauchten Teebeuteln und Etiketten, die ich von den  Einkäufen meiner Tochter Julia sammelte. Wir hatten, wie so oft eine MAGICAL MYSTERY (Shopping) TOUR zusammen. Wir nehmen meistens unser Auto und fahren nach Wien, um dort einen fantastischen Einkaufstag zu erleben.  Es ist alles sehr aufregend für uns - alle Läden, die die jungen Leute lieben, sind da - es ist natürlich wie das Paradies für eine 16-jährige.

 And the best - and now comes the part dedicated to TSFT of the Magical Mystery Shopping Tour is to have coffee at one of the most oldfashioned coffee house chains of Vienna named AIDA.
 Und jetzt kommt das beste an der Magical Mystery Shopping Tour, gewidmet TSFT, nämlich Kaffee bei AIDA, der wohl altmodischsten Kaffeehauskette  Wien's.

 Cinnamon Roll and Apple Strudel - yummie! Zimtschnecke und Apfelstrudel - köööstlich! 

Happy T-DAY!
our current theme of "Magical Mystery Tour" is still running for five days.
unsere laufendes Thema "Magical Mystery Tour" läuft noch fünf Tage.


  1. Happy T Day Susi

    Great idea to do a spread celebrating your shopping trip. Terrific car and great use of the white spots

    Love Chrissie xx

  2. Wonderful art jounal spread, Susi! Looks like you and your daughter had a great time :) And those treats look yummy! Happy T-day <3

  3. I love the monochromatic look of Shopping With Julia. I really appreciated the use of labels from her clothes. That makes a great collage, along with the tea bags.

    The trip must have been wonderful for the two of you. Some bonding time together seems perfect, especially now that she's a teen. They are harder to reach at that age.

    Wonderful shop and beautiful food (cinnamon roll and apple strudel are YUMMY) compliment the coffee beautifully.

    Thanks for sharing your TioT and AJJ entry, and thanks for joining in for T this Tuesday.

  4. Liebe Susi,
    was für eine tolle Seite und
    es freut mich so, dass ihr eure
    "Shoppingtour" so richtig genießen konntet.
    Ich wünsche dir einen sonnigen Tag.
    LG Sadie

  5. Bei dem letzten Foto läuft mir gleich das Wasser im Mund zusammen, hmm, ich liebe Apfelstrudel und Zimtschnecken!
    ... und eine schöne Shopping-Collage zur Erinnerung an den Tag mit deiner Tochter - diese labels hebe ich auch immer auf und musste grinsen über superpushup!
    Schönen Tag von Ulrike

  6. I'd go shopping just to have that coffee break. YUMMY! I remember those teenage shopping trips. My daughter would have gone 3 times a week. Or maybe 4 or 5. :) I love your page. Wouldn't it be fun to go into town in a car like that? Maybe even with a chauffeur so you wouldn't have to find a place to park? Not that I need all that fussing but for one time it would be a blast. happy T day. hugs-Erika

  7. Such an amazing spread Susi! I loved the colors and texture! Looks like you had fun! :)
    Suchi xx

  8. haha, kann mich Ulrike wörtlich anschließen;) klasse Collage, und ich hab hier auch eine labelsammlung, frag mich grad wozu;)
    shoppen ist für mich schon ziemlich zum Fremdwort geworden, mangels einer tochter im entsprechenden alter erst recht
    hab eine schöne Woche, Susi!

  9. So wonderful spread page Susi !! love those textures!!! love shopping too jeje.... The breakfast is super!!, I think I could visit you tomorrow morning ! :D Happy afternoon, big hugs.

  10. Great collage celebrating your shopping trip. I think shopping with a teen (granddaughter) is a whole lot of fun. Your treat in the coffee shop is making me hungry.

  11. What a fun shopping spread and haahaa had to laugh at the PINK store- our granddaughters favorite!
    Oh that Strudel looks absolutely Yummy!! Was it?
    love to you xx

  12. Lovely journal page and the cafe looks wonderful. Happy T Day!

  13. Dannn kann ich ja auch mit shoppen kommen, hihi. Wien ist bestimmt einen Trip wert, mit oder ohne shoppen. Leider bin ich dort noch nicht gewesen. Deine Collage ist sehr schön und eine tolle Erinnerung an einen wunderbaren Tag mit Deiner Tochter.
    Liebe Grüße

  14. Great journal page. Happy T day!

  15. I take my coffee black, but I'll take pastry however it comes ;) Yours looks delicious! Happy T Tuesday

  16. Ooh, I would have trouble choosing between the cinnamon roll and the strudel... as long as the strudel has plenty of cinnamon too, that would probably win! Sounds like a magical shopping trip to Vienna indeed - Julia seems to have found plenty of bargains - and I do hope you were in a fabulously glamorous car like the one on your page - that's the way to travel!

  18. Happy T day Susi and a happy post to read.
    Yvonne xx

    Donna xx

  27. Liebe Susi,
    so eine schöne Seite und ein herrlicher Ausflug. Bestimmt fiel die Auswahl schwer, bei all den bunten Dessous ;). Die Zimtschnecken sehen so lecker aus!
    Liebe Grüße

  28. Great journal page to remember your special shopping day with your daughter. I bet Julia had fun and the two of you I'm sure had some quality time together. For me it would be worth the trip just to go to the coffee shop. Cinnamon roll and applestrudel are both very yummy
    Happy T-Day,

  29. I had to laugh when I saw the "push up" tag on your "magical" page and then scrolled down to see a Victoria's Secret-type store. That's when it clicked.

    Glad you had a fun shopping day with your daughter. I love a good day shopping myself! Apple strudel is my favorite pastry. I used to make my own strudel dough. Haven't done that in years because I don't have a big kitchen table anymore.

    Happy T-day, Susi! Hugs, Eileen

  30. Shopping in Vienna.... nope not jealous at all.... lol Your goodies look great for this T day! Yum! Hugs! deb

  36. Ah, du bist also auch mit dem Oldtimer unterwegs? :))
    Shopping mit einer 16jährigen ... eine echte Magical Mystery Tour, sagst du - das entgeht mir alles! Irre, wozu man die Etiketten und Preisschildchen verwenden kann, sie pushen, lol, sogar eine Artjournalseite auf!
    Apfelstrudel und Zimtschnecke - ich will auch! Und das im Wiener Kaffeehaus, wunderbar!
    Bussi, Rike

  37. Belated T Day Susi, love your journal page. Thinking that it's a pink/victoria secret store. It is always fun to shop with daughters. I hear Vienna is beautiful, maybe I will make it there someday. I will be looking for advice.

  38. Your spread is magical - wonderful transport - and it looks as though your shopping trip was incredible. May I admit to a tiny bit of the green-eyed monster?!

  39. Wonderful art journal pages Susi...love the dots :)
    Yummy...coffee and sweet, you can't go wrong there :)


  40. Yummy, Yummy! You always give me something to swoon over!
