THE THREE MUSES


Our theme this week at the Three Muses is POSTAGE STAMPS to be used however the fancy takes us.  I thought I would send you something along Oriental lines before I take a fortnight's holiday break in sunny Portugal.

See you on my return.

THE THREE MUSES


We have STRIPES as our theme at the Three Muses this week and as our Union Flag is comprised of stripes what could be more appropriate!  I added a few more stripes (the London Underground Map) and a modern day barcode just for good measure!

TAKE A WORD


Our theme at Take a Word this week is SHADES OF PURPLE and that's when I remembered the little fairy queen I saw from my window (a week last Tuesday).   There she was all shimmering purple in the moon light!!!!  What!

THE THREE MUSES


Our theme at the Three Muses this week is DANCER and that made me think of all kinds of dancers, from ballet to ballroom and even to Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire, but then I wondered if Elvis was still in the building!  And he was!

TAKE A WORD


Our theme at Take a Word this week is TWO and here are my two.  Here was a couple of women in New Zealand watching their children play in the sea whilst having a chat between themselves.  It was one of those snaps I knew would end up being the basis of a piece of art later!

THE THREE MUSES


So, it's MODES OF TRANSPORT across at the Three Muses this week and that reminded me of the lovely green striped fish I saw riding his bicycle clean out of our garden pond (a week last Tuesday).  Not like any fish I've ever seen before and in fairness I'm not sure whether he was a fish since he swore he was a butterfly.  and who am I to disagree!  I loved his crown though.

TAKE A WORD


Our word for inspiration at Take A Word this week is BALLOONS and yes, I admit it, it did remind me of the girl I saw from my bedroom window (a week last Tuesday).  There she was as large as life floating sedately by apparently without a care in the world.  I think she was having a wonderful adventure!

TAKE A WORD


We have TIME as our word for inspiration at Take a Word this week and that reminded me of a strange sight I saw, a week last Tuesday, from my bedroom window.  There in the darkness I saw a gentleman's pocket watch hanging there in the sky.  As I watched I noticed the timepiece was disintegrating before my very eyes as birds began to fly from it, or out of it.  I couldn't tell which.  But even stranger, as I looked closer, I saw a man desperately hanging from the minute hand of the timepiece and wondered where he was bound.  I never did find out because the very next moment the watch disintegrated totally and disappeared from sight.    One question ..... could it be the cheese I ate before bedtime?

Credits : timepiece and birds from the public domain.  The brave gentleman and the background are from my own stash.

Thank you for looking.

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.)

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.
