Dezinaworld - Old Lace

Background is googled lace, image is from a vintage magazine cover.

Three Muses - Roses

Mary planted roses by the door
In that time so long ago
Through lace curtains at the window
She watched them bloom and grow.
Those days are long since gone
Faded into pages of the past
But still the roses vine and bloom
Each year as beautiful as the last.
The lace now hangs in tatters
The cottage vacant and still
The oaks still overlook it all
From their spot upon the hill.
Mary is but a memory
To those who loved her best
But still her roses vine and bloom
Since she’s been laid to rest.
So we, too, leave a legacy
In small things we have done
And we leave a gossamer footprint
That lingers after we have gone.

The cottage is a photo my daughter took in Brown County, Indiana.  I've altered it a bit and
"planted" roses by the door, and written the poem above to tell its story.  The tattered lace curtains at the window seemed to have a story to tell, don't you think?  I hope you enjoy visiting!

Take a Word - Yellow

Yellow is such a cheerful color.   It makes me think of wheat fields, straw bales, sunflowers,baby chicks, corn-on-the-cob,  yellow delicious apples,  butterflies,  and lemon pie!   I wonder what yellow brings to YOUR mind.   Thanks for the visit.

Digital Whisper - Watermelon

This is a collage composed of a vintage seed packet and a vintage postcard. And isn't this the best way to eat watermelon....with the juice running down your chin?!

Three Muses - Book Cover

Anything written by I. Will Skayr is sure to "skayr" me!  (It's always fun to have a bit of word play in the author's name.)  This is the sort of book I'd be sure to take from the shelf.  A little murder and mayhem is sure to capture my fancy for a quick evening read.   Everything cybersurfed!

A bit of a twist on the silhouette challenge.   Mask is by Kubivet.

Take a Word - Circles

I'm often accused of "going 'round in circles", so this was great fun.  A nephew by marriage has said our family motto is "When in trouble, when in doubt; run in circles, scream and shout!"   I'd like to think this is a gross exaggeration, but there is some basis in fact!   Thanks for visiting!
