Time ... when we're young, it seems to go so slow; when we're old, it seems to go so fast; and in the middle, there's never enough of it! Credit for the clock faces to Jen U Designs, and the image is a vintage freebie. Happy New Year everyone!
This is a blend of a Klimt background and a Waterhouse image. I enjoy harvesting pieces of classic art and creating something new and different. It was fun introducing Klimt to Waterhouse! This was originally created for the Digitalmania Flickr site.
Somehow, the concept of Santa riding a rainbow struck my fancy, and I was off and running. Trying to get Santa and his sleigh to curve exactly right was a bit of a challenge, I admit, but I'll bet the old fellow had the time of his life! Everything cybersurfed, of course. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah or Joyous Kwanzaa, whichever fits your faith! May the holiday season bring you rainbows and lollipops!
Winter is an anomaly this year in my part of the world. The past three days have been in the 60s, when the norm is as it appears above. We have the distinct feeling that winter will come with a vengeance when it chooses. In the meantime, we're enjoying the balmy weather, so I had to borrow a photo from last year. Anyway, MERRY CHRISTMAS from my house to yours!
My favorite game is Scrabble. I play several games on line every day, and I've spent many pleasant hours with family or friends kibitzing at the Scrabble board, from a sandy beach in Florida to the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, to my home, wherever it might be. The photo, one I use in some way every Christmas, is of my childhood church and superimposed on it is a wood Santa I crafted many years ago. Scrabble letters and letter bag were googled. Thank you for sharing my memories!
I've always envied women with hair a rich, chestnut color some call auburn, but which is like a luxurious, polished sepia. I've a friend and a niece with hair of that color. Both bring sunshine with them when they enter a room, their smiles infectious and their outlook on life always upbeat. The beautiful woman pictured here has been in my archives forever, and I've long since forgotten the source. I think Fancy's pensive look must cover a fiery spirit and a wondrous smile! Thanks for visiting.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at our house, and I'm getting in the spirit. Christmas always conjures up memories of the little country church of my childhood, and the hard-working folk of faith who gathered there every Sunday. Somehow everyone found time to attend church on Christmas Eve to hear the reading of the story of Christ's birth from the Bible, and to raise their voices in the old traditional hymns. Today's big churches and noisy modern music make me long for that simple time. When the amplifiers are turned up, I often wonder if God is wearing ear plugs!
Musical Theatre is the challenge this week at Dezinaworld. Credit to Tangie Baxter for the curtains and chandelier. The dancers are from my stash, source lost in the mists of time. Thanks for visiting!
