THE THREE MUSES


We have TEA CUPS as our theme at the Three Muses this week and that reminded me of the loving cups I saw recently (but not through my bedroom window).  They were quite charming.

TAKE A WORD


Our theme at Take a Word this week is COLOURS OF THE RAINBOW and that reminded me to tell you about the lovely rainbow tree I saw from my bedroom window a week last Tuesday.  I swear I'm telling the truth .... even though it had completely disappeared by the following morning!

Our theme at the Three Muses this week is ANIMAL (which Bev says can't be either cat or dog).  Mmmmmm!

Anyway, luckily for me I had seen, by the light of the full moon a week last Tuesday evening, a cow making a giant leap across the sky and I knew then which animal I would use.

It's SONG LYRICS at the Three Muses this week and that made me think of Frank Sinatra and Fly Me To The Moon!

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter or Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, baby, kiss me

Fill my heart with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for
All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, in other words, I love you

THE THREE MUSES


Our theme for this week at the Three Muses is ZETTI and I remembered seeing this very strange girl, a week last Tuesday, who I think could be described as a Zetti.  Stripy stockings, colourful and strange clothes, though no wings to speak of.   Still she did seem to fit the description otherwise.  I was most taken up with her spectacles!!!!

Credit to TumblefishStudio and bit of my own stuff here and there.  (I believe the background was a blog freebie, but I can't recall from who.  So if anyone recognises it let me know and I will credit.)

TAKE A WORD


We have FISH as our word for inspiration at Take a Word this week and that reminded me of a new fangled bicycle I saw a week last Tuesday.  The designer had obviously thought about oncoming traffic hazards when trying to head out into traffic from a side road!  Oh did I mention a fish was actually riding this bike?  Honest!

WORD FOR JANUARY

My chosen word for inspiration this January is KINDNESS. 

I confess to often being too busy, too rushed, or too selfish to think enough about other people.  In an attempt to be less selfish I will try my hardest to be kinder, listen more, smile more and be more warm and generous to others!  I promise!

May I wish you all a very happy, healthy and peaceful 2018.

TAKE A WORD

Our theme this week at Take a Word  is to remember ABSENT FRIENDS this Christmas time.

Because this particular photo allows me to remember so many of  my 'long ago' family it remains one of my all time favourites. 

It's my parents' marriage, a happy time after the end of the second world war, and also a pictorial record of so many of my family including grandparents, great uncles and aunts and also second cousins.  It wasn't until I began to research my family history and I was able to put faces to names that this particular photo became as precious as it is.

Thank you for looking.
