Three Muses - PhotoPlay

This is a photo of my great nephew.  Background beach scene was googled, layered and filtered a bit, palm tree was from my stash, and poetry is an excerpt from a poem by Amy Lowell.  I liked the word imagery.   Thanks for stopping by!

Sunday Postcard - Anything Goes

"Anything Goes" is the theme at Sunday Postcard this week.  I was in the mood for something pretty!  Background is from a 1700's still life, drapes Christina Renee Designs.   Thanks for your visit!

Take a Word- Numbers

This fellow is a generous freebie from Land of Nod. I've given him a ledger to clutch, eyeglasses, and an antique ledger background with numbers from Oscraps.  Border is credit to Scrapbookgraphics.  I'm glad you took the time to visit.  I always appreciate comments.

Three Muses - Mail Art

A time to sort out all the glitter and glitz, the frenzied shopping, the overspending and overeating, and take a quiet moment to think about the true meaning of the Christmas season.   May the spirit of Christmas and Hanukkah be with all my blog friends.

Digital Whisper - Gypsy Soul

My mother used to tell the story of buggy rides to the part of their farm that was river bottoms to see the gypsy encampment when it was there.  She said her father liked to horse trade with the gypsies.   So, of course I had to enter this challenge!

Three Muses - Lighthouse

There's something magical about lighthouses.   The famed radio newscaster, Walter Winchell, used to start his broadcast by saying "Mr and Mrs America, border to border, coast to coast, and to all the ships at sea, let's go to press".   All those ships at sea frequently depend on the welcome sight of a lighthouse to guide them.  This is a compilation of snapshots, and the nautical boy is credit to Kubivet, who no longer designs.

Take a Word - Winter

From my home to all my blog friends in cyberland, may your holiday season bring you peace in your heart and joy in your world!!   I've taken the liberty of using a scene from last winter.  At the moment we have no snow at all, so whether or not we'll have a white Christmas is a winter mystery!

Three Muses - Vintage gothic arch

I decided to turn my arch into a mirror on a dressing table, and spent an inordinate amount of time finding appropriate wallpaper, vase, flowers (Eena's Designs), jewelry (Alexeeva),  perfume bottles (Google) and a lovely lady image from my stash I've had for ever so long.   Thanks for your visit!

The word of the week is Angel.  My angel is from a catalog, the background is mine, and the border is L. Bavin with a few borrowed blooms from C. Renee Designs.   May your guardian angels be looking over you this week!   Thanks for visiting me.

Three Muses - Swirls & Twirls

This sassy fellow seemed to fit the challenge of swirls and twirls.  He started as a coloring book guy, and I spent some happy hours zentangling him.   You may have seen him before.  He has a way of cropping up from time to time.  Thanks for visiting us!
