Three Muses - Me

You might think that's Mary Poppins, but actually it's me!   When I'm bored,  I just go up, up and away for a change of scenery.   Truthfully, on rare and wonderful occasions, I've had flying dreams very like this, in which I just seem to elevate and fly upright over the world below, gently landing on my feet when and where I please.  I wish I could recall those dreams on command. They were wonderful!!

Collage Obsession - Winter

So far my world has escaped snow, and our Christmas day was sunny and crisp.   I've taken one of the images and put her in a new setting, and added a bit of green compliments of CreateWings Designs.  Thanks for the challenge, CO!  Happiest of New Years everyone!

Take a Word - Print

There's nothing like nosing through a used book store and finding treasures.  I love the scent of old books,  and I always wonder from whose library they've come.   My lady here is courtesy of Ms. Inman,  book page from Maya at Scrapbookgraphics, elements from Irene Alexeeva.   Thanks for stopping by!

Three Muses - Angel

Sunday  night my son and his wife picked me up and we drove about town looking at Christmas lights and displays.   I love this time of year.  It's as if an angel flew over the neighborhoods spilling jewels of light and magic.   My angel is a clip art freebie by Pamela Perry.   Her jewels are from Lorie Davidson at SBG, and the holly sprig is from CreateWings Designs.   May the peace and magic of Christmas be with you and yours, my blog friends!

Sunday Postcard - Vintage

This sweet image of children is from Flickr Collage Images.   It made me think of my son, who could NEVER go to sleep on Christmas Eve.   It made for some late nights for Mr and Mrs Santa, waiting for him to be sleeping before they put the gifts under the tree!    There's nothing like the eyes of children on Christmas morning to bathe us in the warmth of love and good cheer.

Three Muses - Tis the Season

Each of us has our own special Christmas memories, traditions that vary from family to family, from religion to religion,  from country to country.   It's a time of good cheer, love for our fellow man, and a time to savor the gift of giving.   It's about worship and gratitude, children and magic,  good food  and family,,,,,,,and a time of year that brings out the very best in us.    I wish we could bottle up these good things and make them last all year!.   
Credits:  Santa is from Flickr Collage Images,  the window from Jenn U Designs, and the child from Jesse Wilcox Smith, and the background is mine.  All else is googled.
