THE THREE MUSES


Our theme at the Three Muses this week is VINTAGE BATHING BEAUTIES so here's mine.  I'm not good at identifying fashion decades but I think this one might be from the 1950s.

TAKE A WORD


We have BLUE AND WHITE as our theme at Take a Word this week.  I was going to tell you I saw this girl on a white horse pass my window the other day (a week last Tuesday to be exact), but I'm not going to be because it wouldn't be true!

Instead I'll let you know there won't be any comments from me this week, because I'm going to be in Spain for a week!  Yay!

Our word for inspiration at Take a Word this week is BOTANTICALS!  Now I know you often think I'm not telling the truth when I tell you about the strange things I see but this one is definitely true ..... a week last Tuesday morning as I opened my curtains what did I see but three strangely dressed girlies actually picking the flowers in my garden, and it seems they especially liked the pink ones.

A TICKET TO RIDE

We have WHEELS as our theme this week at the Three Muses and that reminded me of very strange wheeled wonder I saw in our local park a week last Tuesday.  It had wheels, yes, but I couldn't find a door, or windows, and as there was a label with a Ticket To Ride written on it, I'm sure there should have been.  I would have loved a ride on that weird wheeled wonder, but in the end I just had to watch it move on by.  Shame that!
