A bird in my journal

 I love birds- specially drawing, stamping ord painting birds!

In order to see birds it is necessary to become part of the silence.

the page is meant for

Things with Wings over at

Art Journal Journey

and for Birds of a feather at

this week - click "weitere informationen"

I found some very old photos recently - 
this tea set my little daughter and I painted ( it was original white from Ikea)
in 2004

we have it still - it's such a nice memory
we often used it when we had our mom - daughter -tea

sometimes we had muffins for tea

or my girl made very " special " green cake for me in her kitchen!

meanwhile she is a teenie but still bakes cookies for me sometimes....



  1. Love your page Susi and the saying is so true!

  2. Ganz toll Susi! Deine Journalseite ist allerliebst, und die Fotos wunderbar. Die Kinder wachsen so schnell, es ist schön diese kostbare Erinnerungen festzuhalten! Dir einen schöne Tag, GLG, Valerie

  3. Lovely pictures for the Tea Time Susi.

    Great art page yet again with a very true quote

    Love Chrissie xx

  4. I'm SO sorry I've been unable to visit for awhile. I've been frantically working on that AB and it has consumed my life. I need to catch up on what you have been doing, but it seems I still don't have a lot of time to do so, especially since my computer is so slow and the pages load so slowly.

    Your bird is beautiful. I've wanted to participate more this month, but I've simply had no time. You have done this challenge proud, because each one of your birds is awesome.

    I laughed at the tea set. Looks like Julia got all the cups and saucers and all you got was the pot to put the tea in (grin). That was a fun set, though, and a great way to involve your daughter in art. They sure grow up in the blink of an eye, don't they?

    Thanks for sharing your tea set, your journal page, and your lovely daughter with us for T this Tuesday.

  5. Liebe Susi wie schön der Birdbild ist und was von früher in Ikea gab wurde jetzt umgemalt das Porzellan .. wie sie alle fleissig werkeln ob grosse oder kleine!Tolle Fotos zur Teezeit!
    Schönen Dienstag
