Three Muses Challenge 48 - Music, Music, Music

Marie chose Music, Music, Music as her theme for the Three Muses this week and as you can see I just couldn't stop at one entry.

Above, Marilyn sings her famous Happy Birthday Mr President, whilst below, the Musician plays on the piano keys and imagines the music he will create.

Please enlarge for a better view.

Great theme Marie.

Thanks Bev for a great challenge theme, and thank you to all those who take the take to look.

Three Muses Challenge 45 - Bye Bye Blackbird

Marie is our host for the Three Muses Challenge this week and she has chosen BYE BYE BLACKBIRD as the theme. My Mr B Bird has taken me at my word, donned his most favourite hat, bundled up his belongings in his spotty hankie, tied it to his stick and is ready to fly. I loved this one Marie.

Abbey Music

Late last year I attended a music festival at Kirkstall Abbey, the music and the lighting effects were fantastic. What can I say, I was inspired.
