3M..Hello sailor!..

 Miss Susie bear was taking a little stroll along the promenade wearing her new red shoes to go with her new red dress.Out of the corner of her cute button eye she spied a small platoon of sailor bears out on exercise.  She made her way down to the beach just in time for the photographer of Bear Times to take a shot of them. This'll make the front page of Bear Times I'm sure! ....

                      And for this one I made a montage of olden day pirates, including their cat.
Made for the challenge on Three Muses
Thanks so much for your visit.
Love and Hugs

Wish you were here!

Dear Mona was approached to see if she would pose for a Poster advertising a new Nudist beach opening on the East Coast. She graciously agreed, even going so far as to pose undressed, much to the delight of the photographers.
Well......it is Summer and it is hot.....!!

Take a Word....PINK..

Here are my collages for the PINK challenge
The top one I just had a play with images on Google.
The  one above I did for the Digitalmania challenge on Flickr and I've
altered the colour slightly to give it more pink.
Most details from Aria's ColourPlay elements.
The one below I found the gorgeous wealthy looking black lady
on Google and made the collage around her.

Thanks so much for looking.

A Land of Magic...

The Land of Dragons.

Dragon's Breath.

I was feeling in a fantasy mode when I made these.
I'm sure that somewhere in the world, as yet unexplored, there is a Cache of Dragons. undiscovered and peacefully going about their business.
I hope it remains so....

Three Muses Challenge..Fun with Insects!

Well I had a bit of fun with my insects this week as you can see.
She should have married a Grasshopper instead of falling
for the Incredible Wasp man!
All images Googled.
Algie had his Auntie Debbie come yesterday to give him his bath,
haircut and nail trim etc. It's very short but is probably much
better in this hot weather for him. I must admit I like him better
when it's a bit longer! But of course he's still beautiful!
Were you all glued to the TV to see the new Prince of Cambridge
being brought out for the public to see? I was!!
Thank you for you visit,
Think cool thoughts darlings,
Love and Smiles,

Tale a Word..Memories

The Challenge this week on Take a Word is Memories.
As we grow older there is so much more behind us to remember,
the things we've done, places we've seen and
Family! There is always Family!
This picture is me when I was busy teddy bear making.
Hence the name 'Junibears'.
 And this is a real happy day, as you can see.
A lovely memory of Freddie and me,
Thanks for visiting,
Love and hugs,

Happy Weekend..

The Old Storyteller.
The Green Face.

A Joyful Day.
I am still feeling very sore and fragile after a fall onto concrete.
Luckily no broken bones but a long wait for help to come....
So I'm wishing all you dear friends a Joyful day and a
very happy Weekend.

Altered Art...

The challenge on Digitalmania over on Flickr is to make some Altered Art. This was a painting of some old Pope or Cardinal and I replaced his head as you can see. I also placed the little dog in his arms.
Speaking of dogs.....Meet Lucy!

The newest member of the Greg/Finnie household.
Another little rescued dog, 2 years old.
I know she has already captured their hearts and
will receive heaps of love in return.
Welcome to the family Lucy!
Have a great day!
Hugs and smiles,

3M..Black, white and red....

For some reason my Muse let me down this week.
I couldn't come up with anything new or exciting so I tinkered
around and came up with these, a bit of a hodge-podge!
The background on the top one is a cut glass vase.
The bottom one has bits from my stash.
Thanks for visiting,
Love and Hugs,

Even little fairies can find it chilly
when they have a dip!
The background here was made by a dear friend of mine and
this is his daughter with a few of my own additions.
I think the expression on her face is priceless!
Thank you so much for your visit and wonderful comments.
Wishing you all a wonderful day!

A Free Spirit...

I'm feeling a little whoozy and light headed this morning
so perhaps I'm floating away like a Free Spirit!
A change in the weather here. Again we have the white cloud
and no sign of the sun.
Algie is cuddled up on my chest with his head on
my shoulder so I have to type with one finger!
I hope your day is special!
Hugs and Smiles,

3M Challenge..Mirror Mirror on the wall..

We all know the old fairytale...Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?
I thought I'd give it a different twist that's probably been done
many times before!
Someone or Something is desperately clawing to get out of that mirror.
Don't turn out the lights!
This is my collage for theThree Muses challenge this week.
Thank you for your visit.
Happy days and hugs,

I thought I'd show you today one of the challenges I do on my Flickr site.
I belong to a group called Digitalmania and they set a weekly challenge to make something in the style of a particular artist.
This week the artist is Kevin Sloan and these are three of the challenges I've made.
If you Google his name you will see some of his fantastic work.
Sometimes the artist's style is completely out of my comfort zone
but that is the challenge to yourself!
Hope you're all looking forward to a great weekend.
Love and Hugs

And this is a collage I've made entitled funnily enough...
Where I live!
Thank you so much for your visit.

Having a Silly Moment!

You'd think I had nothing better to do, wouldn't you?
 I saw this old B/W pic of Queen Victoria and thought I'd change
it into me! My inner child is laughing! Junie as Queen Vic.
Now I'll go and do something more serious......
have a lovely day
