TAW Window

Old windows make me think in rhyme.  Thanks for humoring me!

Ancient window, weathered and old
Speaking of mystery and stories untold
I wish  you could speak of the days of yore
And tell us what happened here before
Who called it home?  Were they happy here?
Did they live in peace, and free from fear?
What activities filled their days?
Did they labor long, or have lazy ways?
You hold their secrets, I think with a sigh,
But their spirits nod as I pass by.

Three Muses - TWO

Nothing worse than showing up at the party and seeing someone else wearing your gown, especially when you've been promised yours is one of a kind.....and a colorful kind at that!   Thanks for visiting my blog.  I appreciate your comments.

Take a Word - Birds

These "tweethearts" have been in my archives for some time.  They used to be just friends, but the spark of romance seems to have ignited!    Thanks for visiting.  Your comments are appreciated!

Three Muses - Autumn

I'm far from ready for summer to be over, so I hope it's a long while before I see these colors in my world.  Stuff from my stash, border from B. Datema, Scrapbookgraphics, clip art scarecrow superimposed on a photo from a country outing with friends.  Nice memories!   Thanks for your visit!

Take a Word - Arch

Our challenge this week was to use an arch in our work.  This arch seemed to lend itself well to my little flower girl, whose been in my stash for some time.  I lightly tinted the black and white photo.  Don't you wonder when you see these vintage photos if children ever smiled in those days?  Everyone always looks so somber!   Thanks for stopping by.  I appreciate your comments.

Three Muses - Disguise

Milady is from The Lost Gallery, the mask and frame are googled.   Paul Laurence Dunbar said it well in his poem "We Wear the Mask".....In his words (in part), "We wear the mask that grins and lies, It hides our cheeks and shades our eyes.  This debt we pay to human guile; With torn and bleeding hearts we smile."....   It seems to me we are all careful to hide our true selves.  It is difficult to be truly vulnerable.  Don't you agree?  Thanks for stopping by!

Take a Word - Moon

Moon is our challenge word this week at Take A Word.   My moon is compliments of Terri Kahrs (thank you, Terri!), body is a paper doll, and other elements from Scrapbookgraphics.   I'm reminded of the song lyrics:  "I see the moon, the moon sees me The moon sees somebody I want to see.  So, God bless the moon and God bless me And God bless the 'Somebody' I want to see"  
Thanks for stopping by!   I always appreciate your visits and your comments.
