Transported back in time.

Hello T day friends and everyone who calls in to see me today.
You are all very welcome.

First of all I am sharing another hybrid page,  and a reminder for the
current challenge theme at Try it on Tuesdays.....Transport
The base layer was made with stamps and stencils, then I added one of the photos
from our outing before adding a few digital additions.[information in my side bar]

Just before Easter we went  to the Beamish Living museum again ...
it was for the Vintage transport  weekend.
So I have lots of photos to share today

These vehicles we saw driving around at various time of the day. The noise they made made me appreciate our modern cars
An array of old bicycles including some old motorcycles
It was a fantastic delivery bike with its large baskets.

Grand old cars, all highly polished and  cosseted like old family members.

We both loved the steam engines and it would be very hard to describe the smells, but  they were memorable.

The old station was quiet today

The last two photos were of the butchers delivery van.
I was pleased to see that the rabbits and birds on display  weren't the real thing.

Now as its T Day over at
 Bleubeard and Elizabeths

and we are all made very welcome with a drinks related post. I have added a collage of my photos and what we had for a snack that day.
Its another sausage sandwich for me and a cup of tea, which we ate  in one of the rather old fashioned cafe's on the site. I thought I had another photo of the inside of this one, but  it must have been deleted from my camera.
I have to say the sit down was very welcome and the little silver teapot was refreshed with hot water so I could have a second cup.

  I am sharing one last photo collage, to end up in the present day.
This past  week we have been away  in the caravan, I have a lot of  blog visiting
and catching up to do.
Staying at  one of our  favourite destinations,  not Grassington as we thought,
 it was getting a make over.
This we found when we arrived and were re located to Strid Wood beside Bolton Abbey
To add to my cycle loving family's  joy,
 the Tour de Yorkshire
 race passed right by the site and one of out son's came to join us for the weekend

This was the third/last day  of the race, those guys sure are fit
 as the hills go straight up in parts of that area.

Thank you all for calling in today and I hope you have a Happy T day.


  1. Amazing pages are this and such interesting photos of the Beamish Living museum! Thank you for sharing! Happy T-Day!

  2. What a lovely post - lots to look at, fabulous pages and lovely photos.
    xxx Hazel.

  3. I was going to say just the same as Hazel, it is a lovely post. There is something magical about old cars although maybe they would not be so comfortable as today's cars - but lovely to look at from the outside. Loved the photos of the cycles and the butcher's van and steamroller too.
    Your art page is beautiful with lots of lovely layers. Wouldn't that be a great card design for an anniversary.

  4. What a gorgeous post, I especially love the photos from the transport museum and the one of the sausage sandwich, yummy. Love the journal pages you made, too. Have a happy T Day and enjoy the rest of the week, hugs, Valerie

  5. I think one of those old cars would be fun to ride around in on a beautiful day. But, in the day to day, I'm with you about modern cars. :) That's a fantastic new art piece today too. I love the layering and especially how those people have that those plaid clothes. :) They look very retro. :) Looks like you had great time away, even if your usually spot wasn't available. Hugs-Erika

  6. Love the photos of the old vehicles and bikes. What a fun time it would have been looking at all of them. Wonderful pages, and I'm sure you all enjoyed seeing the bike race!

  7. What a great post, your transport page is lovely with the layers and sentiment! I loved exploring the old vehicles with you and steam engines are my favourite too :-) . How wonderful to see the Tour de Yorkshire, I bet it was fantastic and you took some wonderful photos! I remember seeing the Giro d'Italia when we were on holiday in Sorrento - it's such an amazing site to see them racing! Wishing you a Happy T Day Yvonne! J :-)
