2334 ♣♣♣♣♣ CHILDHOOD

A new theme over at TRY IT ON TUESDAY for you to join in.

Think of going to school/nursery rhymes/fairy stories etc.

I thought of a child's imagination and fantasy . The little girl who plays with a doll and imagines she is its mother.
A child's play is not just a reproduction of what he has experienced, but a creative fantasy story of the impressions he has acquired.

 Anything can happen, child,
Anything can be. —say's my sentiment.

 I will link this spread in my Letter Journal 4 to 
"A World of Fantasty" Yvonnes theme over at 
Art Journal Journey .

And for my lovely friends over at 
I want to show my new cup. Just made for my inner child.
I can see a little fish when I drink tea out of it! Isn't this lovely?
And as my soul is a child I drink nearly anything out of my new cup. Also my obligatory decaf ... here with delicious apple pancakes for breakfast.

 Happy T-Day!



  1. LOVE you new cup, pretty fishie and adorable journaling.xxx

  2. Stunning journal page Susi - love that sentiment.
    Your cup is fascinating, and I think I would drink frequently from one like that too, especially as most of my drinks are clear (herbal) teas.

  3. Wundervolle Journalseiten, liebe Susi. Deine Teetasse ist ja wohl der absolute Oberhammer, toll,toll, toll

    Hab einen schönen Dienstag, meine Liebe. Bussi

  5. A lovely journal spread Susi and I love your new cup, that fish looks so cute, I think I'd be drinking all day long if I had a cup like that.
    Your breakfast looks delicious.

  6. Oh my, your new cup stole the show for me, isn't it fabulous! That little fish at the bottom of the cup really appeals to my inner child too and would make me smile every time I took a sip of my tea - perfect 😁. Your pages are wonderful with the neutral colour palette and layers and that's a great sentiment too 😀. Wishing your the happiest of T Days dear Susi! J 😊 x

  7. Beautiful! The children have such a great imagination!

  8. Servus Susi, so ein entzückendes Kinderfoto, herzig dargestellt.
    Es soll schon noch ein bischen Spätsommer bleiben aber dann beginnt wieder Teezeit. Sonst mag ich lieber Kaffee in allen Variationen - Eiskaffee.

  9. Lovely art spread and delicious tea! The mug is pretty.

  10. Lovely page and thoughts of childhood Susi-but your cup had me smiling-so sweet-I just love it!! It must be so fun to drink out of it
    Happy T

  11. Your cup is fun how lovely to see a little fish at the bottom. Your spread is very interesting I like the idea of that relationship between child and doll and that Leonardo image of the child in the womb is one I have loved and used often its so beautiful. Great page to have to your journal. xox

  12. Dear Susi, I`m sure you know I love this , so very beautiful creation. Love the old book pages as background, for sepia and white- the cute child, and the almost newborn baby, whom could become everything, the world is open .Lovely thoughts behind , Susi , and your cup is just the sweetest , I would even use it for a cup of wine :-) . Hugs, Dorthe

  13. Susi I am in love with this page and the story you brought with the pages. Childhood is the most amazing time of our lives. Your words are lovely. I am so pleased that this spread is also for Art Journal Journey, it is fantastic for the theme.
    Your cup is awesome with the sweet little fish in the bottom. I think I would be using it all the time, it will brighten the day and bring smiles when the drink is finished.
    Happy T day wishes Susi.

  14. What a cute new cup to smile about as you enjoy that delicious breakfast! Your journal spread is so lovely and the story that accompanies it is charming. Perfect for AJJ and TioT both! Wishing you a great week and a happy T day!

  15. Wonderful images layered against the evocative book page background - beautiful spread.

  16. I want your apple pancakes! They look and sound delicious. And my inner child likes seeing the fish swimming in the teacup, too. :) Fun journal page for both challenges. Happy Tea Day!

  17. I'm not sure where to begin, Susi. This childhood fantasy is wonderful. It is so true how children think so much differently because they are as yet unspoiled by adults who want to take that fantasy away. This is a wonderful and remarkable spread. It's also a great addition to Art Journal Journey.

    I simply ADORE your new mug/teacup. I am so hungry and those apple pancakes look delicious. But that cup is the true icing on the cake. Thanks for sharing it with us for T this Tuesday.

  18. Wunderschön... und ganz nebenbei, dein Frühstück sieht oberlecker aus 😍
    Liebe Grüße

  19. A fabulous look at childhood Susi and I love that cup ! the apple pancakes look delicious too


  20. I'm loving your new cup, so pretty and the fish is such a fun touch. Happy T Tuesday :)

  21. What a wonderful spread Susi! This is so true - when I had a swing as a child I used to imagine being trapeze artiste!!
    I love your mug, my brother frightened me once by having a frog at the bottom of a mug I was drinking out of! Happy T day! Chrisx

  22. Your cup is just beautiful...and so fun! Who wouldn't love drinking tea just to have the experience of a fish in the bottom. I love it! And your apple pancakes sure look amazing. Sounds like something I would love. Fruit in and on everything makes me happy!
    Your journal page is lovely, Susi. I love both of the images that you chose along with that vintage paper in the background.
    Happy Tea Day,

  23. Susi that is the most extraordinary cup!!! Happy Belated T day!! Hugs! deb

  35. What a beautiful cup! And so unusual with that fishie at the bottom.
    Your page is very lovely. I like the sentiment as anything can happen, in the child's life as well as in its imagination.
    Sorry I am late in commenting. (Better late than never), but we are rather busy packing and getting everything ready for our road trip.
    Belated Happy T-Day,

  36. What a fun post, Susi. Sorry to be so late to tea. Both your journal spread and your cup make me smile. That little fish is adorable. I love everything about your childhood spread: the aged text and handwriting background, the two imaged of children - adorable - the bow and the sentiment. It's a very special spread.

    Belated happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

  38. Wundervolle Seiten zum Thema Kindheit hast du wieder geschaffen liebe Susi, wie immer, fantasievoll gemacht. Dieser kleine Fisch in deiner Tasse sieht ja zum Knutschen süß aus, ein richtiger Gutelaunefisch. Da fängt der Morgen gut an. So eine Tasse hätte ich auch gerne. Chai Tee käme bei mir auch rein.
    Hab eine gute Woche mit vielen kreativen Ideen, die dir Freude bringen.
    Liebe Grüße
