The challenge on Take a Word is STARS.
So I made this little collage.
Thank you for your comments.

Here I am with my darling daughter Sally at a Birthday family lunch yesterday.
So many old friends to meet, hugs and kisses all round.
I sat next to my best friend from school, Maureen and we had so much
 catching up to do.
Today I am shattered, my legs will hardly hold me up, 
too much walking even with my crutches!
But it was so worth it!

And here is a pic of three generations, soon to be four.
My beautiful granddaughter Rebecca is expecting in July.
I hope your weekend was as fantastic as mine.

Recent work......

Here's a couple of my recent works.
The top one is what I call 'doodling'!
Just fooling around to see where my muse takes me.

The bottom one is a bit more structured and I had a bit of an idea
where I was going with this!
I can never say what I'm going to do unless it's a given challenge
and then you have an idea in mind. I'd love to know
how other artists work!
Have a great day,

3M...The Age of Steam..

The challenge on Three Muses is to create something with Steam.
My mind immediately turns to Steampunk.
So here is my collage for the challenge.

I hope there is enough steam to satisfy! LOL!
Thank you for your visit.

Something quiet and gentle today....
Algie and I have been for our walk and it's clouding over now.

The American writer Mark Twain had the gift of hitting on truths
and expressing them in the most delightful way.
He once said Always do right and you will please someone--
and astonish the rest!'

Playing catch up...

The lovely Maude Fealy again....

You can keep your hat on....

Marion had a wonderful send off. The Service was lovely.
Afterwards, meeting up with her family that are like my own
there were so many hugs and many tears shed.
And seeing people I had not seen for years was wonderful.
Again so many hugs, tears and then laughter as we all told our 
own stories of fun with that beautiful, well loved lady.
She will be greatly missed.

Hope you've all had a lovely Saturday.

I posted this picture on my Facebook page today.
Wishing all my dear friends love and togetherness!
I am attending my dear friend's cremation this afternoon
and we shared much 'togetherness'.
Saying Goodbye will not be easy.

Wishing you all love and togetherness too....

The Three Muses Challenge is Spring and what it means to us.
My first thought of Spring, is it was my Mother's Birthday, March 21st.

I hope you like my pictures this week.

Party Night!

Every once in a Blue Moon I live it up!
The earrings here I've had more than 40 years.
The necklace I made with  freshwater pearls and real turquoise.

A Birthday Lunch party coming very soon. 
What can I wear?

Ghost Riders in the Sky...

I made this 2 years ago but it has
remained a great favourite of mine,
and this is my new bed that I don't sleep in!
Freddie sleeps well and says it's very comfortable.
You can see the handrail to help him get up.
Have a great day,

I like a bit of Zetti for a change. Not something I do
regularly though. I just don't think of it.
I love the quote above and I've used it before.
I sometimes feel that way myself!

TAW Blackbird

The Challenge on Take a Word this week is Blackbirds.
For some strange reason my mind took a sudden lurch towards
Mr. Poe and ravens and darkness and mystery.
So I have done two pictures this week and I am
looking forward to all your blackbirds........
Freddie is progressing, albeit very slowly. The gaping wound on his
foot is closing slowly and all looks well at the moment.
He is not walking as much as they or I would like but what can you do?
The help will finish on Friday so we'll see if I can manage.
Love and Hugs

These are three very recent ones. I hope you like them.
The weekend is almost here again. I can't believe
how quickly the days fly by!
Take care dear friends,

A Certain Smile..

I've had Johnny Mathis in my head for days singing that song
so I thought I'd better do something about it.
Hence this picture. Funny where ideas come from.....

Marvin again..

Since that Fancy Dress party, costumes have gone to his head.
Marvin has taken to wearing this uniform around the house!
I don't know where he gets his costumes but his hat is too big.
If he didn't stuff it with newspaper it would fall over his eyes.
I have to turn away so he doesn't see me smile.......

3 M.. Bon Voyage Card..

Here's my Three Muses Challenge for this week.
'Bon Voyage'
Thank you for looking.

HRH Prince Marvin

Marvin was recently invited to a Fancy Dress Party.
It was a bit posh as Marvin has some well to do friends,
some with a button in their ears....say no more....
He really went to town and I was so proud of him!
Don't you think he looks very regal?
I think Algie was a little bit jealous!

Miss Mona again.....

I love to play with dear Mona Lisa and put her 
in another costume or era.
I was happy how these two turned out.
Thank you for your visit.

Perhaps my numbers are a little less obvious but I thought
playing cards acceptable.
And Mr. D'Arcy sure played his cards right!
This is my collage for the Numbers challenge on Take a Word.

Hope you've all had a good weekend,
Thanks so much for your visit and comment!

Love and Hugs
