Ahhhh, in my mind there will never be another male star with the masculinity and sexual appeal of Clark Gable. When he said "Frankly, Scarlett, I don't give a damn, there was a collective gasp in the theaters at hearing the word "damn" coming from the big screen. Imagine that! Even so, he caused female hearts to flutter for all the years he swaggered across the screen.

I can sympathize with my zettilady, in that now I'm a prisoner in my orthopedic wedgies, and I only dream of the spike heels and sexy shoes! Credit to RubyBlossom for the background of this piece, and Flickr collage free images for some of the bits and pieces. Great challenge, Ann!

The map background was scanned in from a wallpaper book, the books were Googled, and the lady in her vintage automobile is from my stash when I was careless about noting sources. (If you know, clue me in!). Don't you think she must have been a really independent lady in her day? Thanks for stopping by!

Our Sunday Postcard challenge was to feature memories in our art. These are my mother's hands clasping my father's, cropped from a photo taken on their 50th anniversary. The photo has always touched me in a special way, and this week's challenge seemed appropriate. Thank you for looking.

This week's image from ACF amused me. It would be fun to take her all around the world and giving advice in unlikely places! I took her to Kensington Palace to give a piece of her mind to one of the guards. Maybe next she can have a chat with Buddha, the Dalai Lama, Barack Obama or ..... well, you get the idea! Thanks for the fun, ladies of ACF!

Marie's challenge word this week is "Angel". The background doorway is credited to Land of Nod. Light beam brush by Obsidian. I don't know if this is my guardian angel, but I know I have one. I narrowly missed a beautiful stag deer who leapt across the road right in front of my car on my way home from my little vacation getaway a couple of weeks ago. My passengers and I gasped and breathed a prayer of gratitude for that flicker of time that kept us from colliding!

My ladies box of treasures for this month's Mixed Media Monday challenge contains special family treasures,--a cameo from a great grandmother, a bright turquoise piece from a favorite aunt, and mother's treasured rhinsestone clasp. Pieces of the past.
