The Three Muses Challenge

I had a lot of fun with this week's challenge!
 I found clip art of rainbow colored apples and couldn't
resist creating something fun with them! 
I hope you like my rainbow apple art!

Digitail Whisper Challenge

Little Red Wagon

My children loved their Radio Flyer and I can still hear their laughter as they took turns riding and pulling each other up and down the driveway for hours!
Thank you, Patti, for another fun challenge! You always know exactly what theme to post  next that will challenge our imagination and keep our creative juices flowing! 
This art piece expresses the deep emotions I feel as I face what every mother must face
when their children begin their own journey towards adulthood.
Am I prepared for the day when I will find that my little nest is suddenly empty ?
As the years quickly passed by,
 my children pushed  aside one toy after another,
now they are all packed safely away.
Sentimental feelings for those toys often overflow in my heart because
each toy holds a special memory attached only to the child that loved it dearly.  
I own great treasure for within those plain, cardboard boxes are many precious gifts,
moments in time that will forever be.
Theses are the gifts my children have left for me.

The Three Muses Challenge

You say I am discontented, proud and ambitious; that's true, and I'm glad of it. I am discontented, because I can't help feeling that there is a better sort of life than this dull one made up of everlasting work, with no object but money. I can't starve my soul for the sake of my body, and I mean to get out of the treadmill if I can. I'm proud, as you call it, because I hate dependence where there isn't any love to make it bearable.... I'm willing to work, but I want work that I can put my heart into, and feel that it does me good, no matter how hard it is. I only ask for a chance to be a useful, happy woman, and I don't think that is a bad ambition. Even if I only do what my dear mother did, earn my living honestly and happily, and leave a beautiful example behind me, to help one other woman as hers helps me, I shall be satisfied.

Digital Whisper Challenge

Telephone Booth
Patti gave us another fun challenge this week that reminded me of so much of the streets of London where there is a shiny, red phone booth on every corner!!  So thinking of England,  I began gathering my images together to start working on my entry.

 I started working and soon the words to a familiar tune began to go through my head! Oh, what was it? I knew it was about outer space and came from the movie,  The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty but couldn't quite remember who sang the song... was it The Beatles...maybe another rock group? I looked up the soundtrack and of course, it was the song, Ground Control To Major Tom!

Now my question is...how did my mind go from Phone Booth to London to Aviator Hat to David Bowie To Major Tom? Like daydreaming, I guess, looking through kits and images takes me from one memory to another which quickly feeds my wild imagination and takes me to another world waiting to be explored!!!!

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do
Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still.
                                     ...David Bowie

The Three Muses Challenge

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells.
Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. 
It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of the telescope.
Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities!
