Marie has chosen TIDINGS OF COMFORT AND JOY for this week's theme at the Three Muses, so I thought I would take the opportunity to wish you all the compliments of the season.  So a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all my friends.

Thanks Marie for a great theme.

Marie (aka Ozstuff) has asked me to guest host this week for the Take A Word challenge and the word she has chosen is CELEBRATE.  At this time of the year CELEBRATE might bring the holiday season to mind but when I found this template of a man jumping for joy I knew the direction I wanted to take.  So here he is celebrating for all he is worth and in front of an audience too.

Thank you for a inspirational word Marie.

Thanks all for looking.

Have you seen this couple?  Masters of disguise and known by a number of aliases they have recently been linked to a number of petty crimes such as cupcake stealing and illicit cider making activities and the authorities are very keen to speak to them.  If you have seen this very odd couple or have any information about their whereabouts please contact Taluula and leave a message in the comments section below.

Yes, it's my turn to host at the Three Muses and I've chosen ODD COUPLE as my theme.  :D

CHILDHOOD is our word this week at Take a Word.  That got me thinking about childhood and when I do that for some reason it makes me think of deep or dark images, of the the real meaning behind nursery rhymes for instance, or being frightened by clowns may be.   I thought I might create a girl with her hands to her eyes (you know the one Judy) slowly counting to a hundred in a deep dark forest whilst her parents slip away.  Mmmmm ... a tad too dark do you think?   Yes, me too so in the end I went for a fairytale childhood : soft, dreamy and slightly out of focus.  :D

Thanks for another great thought provoking word Marie.

It's Bev's turn to host at the Three Muses and this week she has chosen FLOWERS as her theme.

A really interesting theme Bev, and this is my interpretation.

Credit to Efie for the flowers, eye and masks, everything else is from my own photographs .... in fact when I photographed this model, I had to make a hasty exit from the shop before the owner had time to eject me.    Ahh my poor long suffering family!

Thank you for looking.

This week's word at Take a Word is MAIL and that got me thinking about the type of mail that might have been sent out in years gone by.  And that reminded me of young Harold who once posted a letter (very much like this one) to Santa asking if he might have a pair of long trousers and a train set for Christmas.  I never did find out if his request was successful ..... but I do hope it was.

Thanks for another great word Marie.

Jayne (aka Peppapig) and I have a little ATC swap going each month and just recently this has developed into an ATC and Mail Swap.

This was the envelope I sent to Jayne for November.
and the ATC Jayne found inside.
