Take a Word - Two

This sweet pair was a freebie from Land of Nod.  Background is a blend of several from my stash. 

Digital Whisper - Books

Where would we be without books?   I put aside my Kindle any time for a treasured book.  I love the smell of old books,  and musty old book shops are a favorite haunt.   Great challenge, Patti!

Algeron was a thoughtful man
Who wanted to set to sea
He considered his mode of transportation
And what in the world it could be
But Alergron was resourceful
And  covered all the bases
He manufactured his seagoing vessel
And set off for  foreign places
The ships that he encountered
On his way to distant lands
Were known to admonish their sailors
"Quick!  On deck!  All Hands!"

I have to admit I dredged Algeron from my archives, but his mode of transportation seemed worthy of a second look.  Thanks for your patience with my nonsense, and my rhyming!

Take a Word - Fly

In this bit of fantasy, the "passenger" is extracted from a Jesse Wilcox Smith painting, her flying hearts are from Finecrafted Designs.  Thanks for stopping by!

SPA - Black and White

I LOVE to do black and white, but I'm always compelled to add a touch of red.   Thanks for the challenge.
