A little trip to town centre

Goodmorning everybody!

Hope you all had a nice weekend and charged yourself with new energy for this week.
Weather here was a bit strange the last couple of days. But for a bright note, temperature was real nice! Only suddenly Saturday evening it started to rain, but I mean serious rain! And with it some lightning and even a few thunder blows.
First things first, I had a blog award again, from http://matsscrapbooking.blogspot.com/
Thanks Mat, I really appreciate it. Now up to me to pass it on to 5 other blogs and of course let them know they can pick up this award on my blog and then they have to pass it on to 5 other blogs.

Okay here are the blogs:

Oh, Jan did an awesome find in the garden. He found a very little bat! The sad thing about it was, that it was a dead one. But I never knew they lived around our area! It was great to see it and in his own way he was quite cute too. And once in a while we still see our summer guest, the toads, around too.
But you can notice that summer is almost at it's end, in the garden and in the streets and parcs. Leaves are falling, changing color, and though autumn has it's own charm, I am not hasty to welcome it yet.
Yesterday we planned to go to town centre, there was the yearly market of the opening of the theatre season, then there are lots of stands with documentation of their programs and here and there also some little perfomances, mostly of music and cabaret. First we weren;t sure to go, weather was a bit cloudy, every now and then with a little drop of rain, but finally we did go(and we were right to do so, nice temperature, sometimes a ray of sun, and we catched just a couple of lost raindrops).
I must say it looked a bit smaller in comparison to last year, which certainly has to do with the cutting in money for cultural events by the government. Still we had a nice time, and I even could make a few pics. Here we go:
This was at the entrance of the event, a HUGE bronze statue of a guy sitting on his knees and hands, beuatiful made.( there were some more statues standing in between, part of a exhibition)
This poor guy or girl had to walk in this stork costume all day, but I thought it looked funny.
I liked this statue of  Japanese fighter.
 This was was real nice. It was a stand to promote the city of Delft, very known buy it's porcelain fabric, the Delft Blue. Don't you think the dress is awsome?
 And what a great idea, to make a big lamp( it even gives light in the evening)
 And here we had great fun to watch. I think it was around a stand for some kind of theatre program, but I just loved the policeman on his iron horse. The horse even made horse sounds! The guy perforamed a little show, at a point being very "annoyed"because his "horse" had dropped some stuff. And looks at his costume! They even didn;t forget the horses tail!


 Then walking towards the tram, we made alittle detour through a little park, whaere there are a lot of deer. They are just beautiful creatures, hey?

We were home again about 4 o'clock, so time enough to give our poor feet a little rest and then I had an easy but tasteful dinner for us. I had an alreaydy roasted or grilled small chicken, which I warmed up in the oven, made a potatoe salad to it and then we had strawberries with cream. That all made our stomach full enough!
Between all that I had some great time at the computer too, as I did all the "necessary house stuff"a bit on Friday and the laundry on Saturday morning LOL. Made some nice stuff I think, some of it will be offered in seperate downloads, two very different kits that will be.
But today I have a fantasy kit for you. In it just 8 papers, almost like premade backgrounds, I suppose, I tried to catch the 4 seasons in fairyland. Here a better view on a couple of papers:

There a lots of elements in it, I hope you can make some nice layouts with this kit. The papers are made a bit like stacked papers.
Here the preview and then downloadlink of the whole kit, named "Through Faerie Seasons"
Have a wonderful Monday and some great creative moments!!

Good morning Kyra:)
CONGRATULATIONS on your blog award!! You really do deserve it.:)
WOW..so many interesting things in your trip to the town center. LOVED them ALL but especially the man with the horse.LOL The huge lamp comes in second.hehe You got some really COOL photos from there.:)
The cable TV companies are always figuring out ways they can make more money.Get you hooked on some shows and then take them away and make you pay to get them back.I think the only extras we pay for now are the local channels.Can you believe we have to pay for LOCAL?LOL We stopped the movie channels because they were playing the same ones over and over again.Christy likes the Red box at Walmart or our local grocery store.You can get a movie for a dollar and take it back the next day ..get a different one for a dollar.At least you can get the ones you want that way.:)Jim likes Netflix.:)
Sounds and looks like you had a great weekend!!YAY!!

Hugs,
Valinda
