T Stands for....Tunes and a treat...

Hi everyone. Elizabeth starts her T post with a question this week and I have a page with a little quiz!

If any of you have seen some of my Travel Journals, this is a style I like to use.

I used metallic paint and pens to colour in the little vignettes that all have something to do with songs with Golden or Gold in the title.

I have provided some word clues for you - I hope you can have some fun with it!

I'll provide the answers next week at T Time!

It is of course for Valerie's 'Heavy Metal' theme at Art Journal Journey.

There's still not much going on around here and I'm in danger of beginning to put back that weight I lost..especially if we keep treating ourselves....

I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth at The Altered Book Lover blog for T Stands For Tuesday.

I still haven't found how to link this image to Elizabeth's post - it was so was easy with 'old' blogger

It did look rather more attractive before I dipped in my spoon then remembered that I should take a photo! this isn't the only treat either...I had Almond Croissants delivered today for a treat when hubby gets back from taking the car to be serviced early tomorrow!

We have promises for restrictions to be lifted and things to begin to open up - the Government is being cautious and I hope that this time folk won't be as silly as the last time and try to stretch rules as this will only put us back to the start again!! (please notice my restrain here in describing these people)

Next week T Day will coincide with Second Look on the 2nd again but I'm thinking...why wait for some more sunny pics!!

These are a few gardens we visited in France in 2015

By a lake in Azay le Rideau chateau grounds

A cool park in Tours

Walk near the  Gallo Romaines site Poitiers
Another cool spot in Troyes - watching a game of boules

Floral Market, Paris
Jardin Des Artes, Paris

There, that's lifted my spirits - happy memories - I hope you enjoyed them too!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Hi Chris, lovely photos of memories of your holidays , let’s hope we can do it again soon if everyone is sensible.
I’ve been struggling with the new blogger and it’s even worse on my MacBook!
Happy T Day

Fun journal page, but I am not good at guessing songs! Thanks so much for linking to my theme! Lovely photos, too. Happy T Day, have a great week, Valerie

Your hot chocolate looks like a real treat, especially in that pretty cup. I look forward to making new memories during new outings soon, hopefully soon :) Happy T Tuesday!

Your photos make me think of some of our trips to France, where we have been during those trips, and how beautiful it is. Thanks for posting them.

be safe... mae at

Fun journal page Chris. I've figured out a few but am stuck on a few also. Hmm. I'll be looking at this for awhile. It's a perfect page for Valerie's challenge. Oh that coco and whipped cream sure looks good. And thanks for sharing some photos. I am enjoying some armchair travel lately. Hope it was a happy T day. hugs-Erika

Linda Kunsman said...

well you certainly made a real challenge to name that tune:) Fun page and I look forward to seeing the answer.
Almond croissants-yum!!! My first favorite and then the chocolate ones!
Thanks for a lovely revisit to the French gardens- so beautiful.
Happy T day!

CJ Kennedy said...

I'm hopeless with the song lyrics. I'll just enjoy all the green and growing pictures while sipping hot chocolate. Happy T Day

Iris Flavia said...

Found some tunes, but look forward to your answers!
I think no one is happy about the new blogger...
Lovely pictures, mood-lifting, thank you.

Lisca said...

I enjoyed all those lovely parks, all that green is so hopeful. I long for the spring.
Your chocolate looks yummy. I have just had a milky coffee and I have put some cacao in with it. But I haven't got squirty cream, alas.
That quiz is a real tough one. I haven't been able to identify any. Perhaps I am doing it wrong. Are those lines of the actual lyrics, or a clue to what the song is about. In which case i can link the long hair with the weakness and from there to the song about that particular lady. But that is it.
I will look forward to the answers next week.
Happy T-Day,

Such fun and a great way to spend time with my cuppa this morning! I think I see Heart of Gold by Johnnie Cash, Golden Years by David Bowie, Gold by Spandau Ballet, Golden Brown by The Stranglers, Goldfinger by Shirley Bassey, Fields of Gold by Sting and Goldeneye by Tina Turner. Beautiful photos too 😀. Thanks for the fun post and sending you Happy T Day wishes! Hugs, Jo x

DVArtist said...

It is so cold here this AM that I could drink that coco right now. I love seeing your photos. Have a great day.

Rita said...

They certainly do look like happy memories.

I think I know a few of the answers but not all of them. :)

Elkes Lebensglück said...

this is beautifully designed this page with the great memories again! I love it and your photos too!
Have a beautiful day, hug Elke

Sharon Madson said...

Thanks for sharing the photos. We were in Paris 30 years ago, these bring back memories. Happy belated T Day!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

My apologies for visiting so late, dear. I had a 24 hour bug and had trouble sitting for any length of time without being sick.

Sorry, but I don't know any of the songs, so I look forward to seeing what they are. I DID enjoy seeing more images of France. I never get enough of these lovely photos.

Your hot chocolate looks wonderful with whipped cream on it. Thanks for sharing your art, your photos of France, and your hot chocolate with us for T this Tuesday. Again, SO sorry I was late visiting.
