This week at the Three Muses Marie has chosen WORLD OF MOVIES as her theme ..... and here is my interpretation on her theme.   For me it had to be Charlie Chaplin of course and the iconic image of Modern Times which for me says it all.  So here we are with my entry this week.

Thanks Marie for another great challenge.

It's week five of Marie's new challenge TAKE A WORD and her word for this week is HOME.

That got me thinking about our weather here in the UK :  freezing and icy with that unmistakable silence created by fat meandering snowflakes covering our world in a fresh white snowy blanket.  Here is my HOME where the girl looks out on just such a snowy landscape.

I confess to adding the hand and the balloon but the mitigating circumstances are that my Muse made me do it!

Credit to CAJoline for the girl, the drapes and the landscape, Irene Alexeeva for the banister and NumbBum for the window frame and the balloon.  The hand and floor are my own.

Thank you for looking.

It is my turn to host at the Three Muses this week and I have chosen SHOES as my theme.

Here is my pair of dreamy ruby red slippers and I'm sure if I clicked my heels something wonderful would happen.  Wow, just look at those heels!

Thanks for looking.

June is hosting this week's Take A Word challenge and has chosen MEN as her word. 

Now this got me thinking about Harold who has suffered from many illnesses in the medical dictionary and his poor long suffering wife Madge.  Madge in exasperation calls his latest ailment cold but Harold argues in favour of flu.    Mmmmmmm!

Any fellows out there who are thinking this is a classic case of sexism against the male of the species please accept my apologies if that is the impression I am giving ........  I only ask that you take a good long look at Harold before you condemn either Madge or myself.

I used figures from two separate pages of a book donated to the Free To Use section of Flickr by the very generous Digital Sextant.  I made this little scenario then gave it some colour in Photoshop and added a comment from Madge using the font : Persimmon.

Thanks for a great word June.

Thanks all for looking.

It's Bev who is hosting our challenge at the Three Muses this week and she's chosen VEHICLES  as her theme.

As usual, I have no idea where this came from but it was insistent on being created and displayed and so who am I to argue ......... blame it on my Muse!  Don't you just love the elderly couple enjoying their afternoon watching the world go by?

Credit to Efie for some of the elements whilst the rest were my own (including the background) and the elderly couple who I encountered in a roadside park in Southport in Lancashire.

Thanks Bev for a brilliant challenge.

Thank you all for looking.

Marie has chosen MOON for our word this week so I thought I'd better hop over to Nasa images and see what lovely moons were on offer over there.  Mmmmmmm ...... this one took my fancy!  Over to Honey Designs for the architecture, to Efie's blogspot for the ladder.  I found the starry background and blended it with one of my own and then used a picture of a chess board to finish off my little moonlit night.

Loved your choice Marie.

Thanks all for looking.


This was the first piece of digital art I ever made.  A pictorial memory of my family past and present.

Thanks for looking.

Marie is our host at the Three Muses this week and she's chosen BLACKBIRD as her theme.  That got me to thinking  about Fred and Agnes, a couple of blackbirds who live in my neighbourhood who I noticed have been getting very friendly of late.    I can't be sure but I think love is in the air ....... don't you?

Thanks Marie for a great challenge.

Marie's word this week is ANGEL so here is mine : The Angel of the North a sculpture by Anthony Gormley here in the UK.    Yes, I know ....... I always have to be different ..... but it's not me, it's my Muse!

Thanks Marie.

Thank you for looking.


Terri is hosting the Sunday Postcard Art challenge this week and she's chosen Hats n Crowns as her theme.   So here is a bit of silliness from me.  :D

There is nothing will lift my spirits faster than a few show tunes blasting out at a level of decibels that should come with a  health and safety warning!    So here is my interpretation of Lisa Minnelli singing  Cabaret ..... so put down your knitting, the book and the broom..... time for a holiday .... life is a cabaret old chum ..

Thank you for taking the time to look.
