Three Muses - Happy

Making art is one of the things that makes me happy....along with being with family, lunch with friends, playing cards, chocolate,  autumn drives down country roads, finding little out-of-the-way cafes and antique shops,  the smell of coffee in the morning, meeting with my writing group, a good book,  chocolate, rainy days,  the fragrance of new mown grass, watching hummingbirds at my feeder,  the first snow (not the rest!), springtime,  a tidy house......and did I say chocolate?!   Can't wait to see what makes YOU happy!

Three Muses - Altered Card

My lady was in my archives, and I updated her to the Queen of Hearts.  She's mostly cybersurfed, with a bit from Eena's Creations.     Thanks for stopping by!

Take a Word - Steampunk

Bits and pieces of my punkmobile are credit to Finecrafted Designs, and the gentleman is credit to Land of Nod.  It's always fun to engage in punkery!

Three Muses - Roses

This little cutie is a vintage freebie, the grunge background is mine, the roses are flown in from Google, and the frame is by B Datema at Scrapbookgraphics.   This piece was inspired by the Shades of Gray work by artist, Carol Leigh, whose work I greatly admire.   Thank you for visiting!

TAW Window

Old windows make me think in rhyme.  Thanks for humoring me!

Ancient window, weathered and old
Speaking of mystery and stories untold
I wish  you could speak of the days of yore
And tell us what happened here before
Who called it home?  Were they happy here?
Did they live in peace, and free from fear?
What activities filled their days?
Did they labor long, or have lazy ways?
You hold their secrets, I think with a sigh,
But their spirits nod as I pass by.

Three Muses - TWO

Nothing worse than showing up at the party and seeing someone else wearing your gown, especially when you've been promised yours is one of a kind.....and a colorful kind at that!   Thanks for visiting my blog.  I appreciate your comments.

Take a Word - Birds

These "tweethearts" have been in my archives for some time.  They used to be just friends, but the spark of romance seems to have ignited!    Thanks for visiting.  Your comments are appreciated!

Three Muses - Autumn

I'm far from ready for summer to be over, so I hope it's a long while before I see these colors in my world.  Stuff from my stash, border from B. Datema, Scrapbookgraphics, clip art scarecrow superimposed on a photo from a country outing with friends.  Nice memories!   Thanks for your visit!
