Three Muses - Stylish Ladies

We're asked to feature stylish ladies in this week's art.  Well la-te-dah, how about this pair  and their little poodle, stopping to chat outside the Cafe Le Metro.    The poodle looks quite bored with it all, don't you think?  
Credits:  Tangia Baxter at SBG for the ladies, and Finecrafted Designs for the background.

Take a Word - Leisure Time

I've been spending my leisure time reading "The House Girl" by Tara Conklin, great historical fiction!   Also, I just finished "Brain on Fire" by Susannah Cahalan, a non-fiction page-turner.  I highly recommend both.

Three Muses - Shoes

I've been wearing my attitude shoes the past few days getting used to Windows 8.1, so this seemed appropriate.  I feel a bit like Mama Bear, as if somebody's been eating my soup!!   Thanks for visiting and commenting!    Some bits credit to Irene Alexeeva, the attitude girl is my sketch.

Take a Word - Wings

This is a bit of fantasy nonsense.  Sometimes I just scroll through my "stash" until something ignites my imagination, and that was the case here.  The wee magician is from a Jesse Wilcox Smith painting, and the scenery from Finecrafted Designs.   Thanks for visiting!

Three Muses - Lime & Turquoise

A quickie!  Please forgive me if I'm absent from comments this challenge.  I have purchased a new computer,  which will be set up tonight, and then I'm going to be battling with Windows 8.1.  Prayers are welcome!!!

Take a Word - Birds

We're asked to features birds in our art this week.  For the first time this week, I heard the birds singing -- no doubt rejoicing that Spring FINALLY seems to be arriving!   I feel like bursting into song myself!!

I had a great time putting this one together.   The background is a composite of 3, other elements are credit to Christina Renee Designs and Dover.  Sorry, I can't remember where I acquired the car for my stash.    Thanks for stopping by!

Three Muses - Vintage Photo

"We all grow up with the weight of history upon us.  Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains, as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies."   ~~ Shirley Abbott
I thought of this quote as I created this one.  The old house is credit to Swainboat (violets added), and the lady is my grandmother.   I hope everyone enjoyed this challenge, and considered for a moment those who came before.   Thanks for stopping by!
