3M Lighthouse challenge

The Ghost Ship at Split Rock Lighthouse

I would not have thought of using a lighthouse in a picture 
so it stretched me.
When I read up about all the ships that were lost there before this 
Lighthouse was built in 1910, I thought there may be a ghost
ship haunting the place.
So all this was in my mind as I made it.

Thanks so much for your comments.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Algie and I are getting into a Christmas mood.
Not many sleeps left till he hangs up his stocking.........


If I think of winter, I think of snow.
I don't want it as I should be housebound
but it is beautiful in pictures.
The background here is a photograph from a dear friend in the States.
The rest was Googled.
Thank you so much for your visit and I send you 
Christmas Blessings.

3M..Whirls..Twirls and Spatters...

Whirls, Twirls and Splatters! What lovely words!
And I have gone the whole hog this week with my selection!
Thank you so much for your visit and comment.

To those who enquired about Freddie, he is not settling down at all
at the moment. I know it is early days but I have asked that he be seen
by a doctor and possibly be prescribed anti-depressants, hoping they
may help a bit.
It is still an ongoing trauma in both our lives and I pray
that it will get easier.

Thank you for your kind thoughts.

TAW...Something Organic...

Something fairly simple for the Organic Challenge.
A few flowers.
All items from the Shabby Rose Kit by
Peaches and Cream designs.

I'm hoping Freddie will soon feel a little more settled in the new Home.
It's much nearer so I can visit a little more often
and Algie is welcomed. He steals the show!

Three Muses quote...Time...

A lovely challenge and I found a quote about Time 
 I hadn't come across before.
So nothing different or way out, just conventional.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone else on the
Three Muses site has made.

Shadows on the wall...

This was going to be something glamorous to start with
but this was the way it finished up, where my Muse took me
This is what happens when you are just 'moodling'.

Have a good day......

3M...White Space...

White Space is the challenge on Three Muses this week.
The background here was gifted me from a dear friend and altered a bit by me.
The fairy tubes I bought years ago from I can't remember where.
I'm not sure if this is the right idea but it's my effort anyway.

Thanks so much for your visit.

Song Titles..


The inspiration behind both these pictures came from Country song titles
I used to sing when on the 'circuit' several years ago.
I know so many songs and it it is an easy way for me to
find inspiration.

Well now Freddie is no longer at home my life has changed considerably.
It feels very strange to be alone, just me and the dog.
I don't know what I'd do without him.
We are now going out for a 'walk'. me riding and he is walking
and riding.

Have a lovely day.

TAW..Pink or Shades of..

This is my Pink picture for the Take a Word Challenge.
The background is made from a picture of a wave my sister sent me 
from Australia a few years back. I've used it several times, this time
with the addition of the heart. The woman was Googled.
I like the mix of pinks and turquoise.

Thank you for your visit.

We Will Remember Them...

Remembrance Sunday is just around the corner once again.
This year has been especially emotive as we have celebrated the
Anniversary of the start of the Great War...100 years ago.
The war to end all wars...so they said.

They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn.
But at the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
We will remember them........

lace curtain at her kitchen window.
She sent me the photo and challenged me to make a picture with it.
So here it is and Jennet was pleased!

Fright....Three Muses...

What are you afraid of?
Interesting challenge this week.
Some may be afraid of spiders,  or mice.  I knew a girl 
who was afraid to touch a feather.
Some people are afraid of injections or they may faint at the sight of blood.

I get this queasy feeling in the pit of my stomach at the sight of clowns.
At this time of year we seem to be bombarded with clowns and Hallowe'en.

So I made this.....it is my Fear...

Thanks for your visit and comment,
Big Hugs

How oftendo we see new babies let alone hold them?
I am thrilled that my two young friends brought Betsy to see me 
and gave me the chance to cradle her in my arms. 
Wonderful to see another of God's miracles.

TAW...Masculine challenge...

This is my 'Masculine' challenge for Take a Word.

Almost all family portraits from this era show the father standing upright and all are stiff and starchy.
I thought this picture found on Google was fabulous, with the father looking so relaxed and sitting on the floor with his children! Just look at the little boy peeking over daddy's shoulder.
Thanks for your visit.

Blowing the Cobwebs away...

Most of you know I cannot leave the house without my buggy as I cannot walk far. Here is Algie taking his 'walk' with me yesterday. He rides on the footplate if there is a lot of traffic or if he gets tired. otherwise he runs beside me.

We were on our way to the quayside to share a 'walk' with the family. He is so disappointed when it is wet and we cannot go out.

Have a great Sunday everyone.

The Three Muses...the Printed Word...

It's always nice to do a challenge with the printed word
as a background. This week the Three Muses have asked for a picture
to include the printed word.
This is a piece of vellum with Latin words. Both this and the woman
found on Google images.
My own frame and overlays.

Thank you for your kind words last week. There isn't any
change at the moment. I am taking one day at a time.

Thanks for your visits and kind comments.

TAW Challenge...Umbrella

It's nice to join in the Take a Word Challenge this week
.Anyway I made this at the beginning of last week.
Again it shows a very high tide over the quay where I live.

Things at home have been very stressful and now to cap it all
 Freddie has a water infection and probably a chest infection too
 and was taken to hospital this afternoon.

Thank you very much for your visit.

My Son...

My son was a Police diver.He had some awful, awful jobs. We have so much water in Norfolk with the Broads there are often accidents andhe has retrieved many bodies from the dangerous reed filled waterways.

In the top picture he is waiting to be hosed down after coming out of a slurry tank.

I am so proud of this wonderful human being.

Life is far from easy these days. Last night I had to call on two neighbours, Guy and Tony to help me get Freddie off the floor again. They even helped me to get him to bed and undressed. Wonderful neighbours!  Thank you.

And a couple of pictures recently made.
I love the New Look and fashion from the 50's.
And of course Paris has always been an icon for fashion...

And above is my favourite vintage style....smile....
Have a great day everyone,

3M...Autumn Colours....

A lovely challenge this week from the Three Muses...Autumn Colours.
It's almost upon us, with it's beautiful array of colours and the last
 whispered warmth of summer.
So this is what came into my mind this week.
Thank you for your visit.

It's been a very stressful time this last few weeks, with Freddie being virtually blind But he has had an operation on his eye and already can see a wee bit. Early days but we're hopeful. Unfortunately he has lost still more strength in his legs which I find even more of a worry. The consequences don't bear thinking about.........
