The Bus Ride

Three Muses Challenge -- Transportation

As, always thanx for stopping by to take a peek!


My Duncan's Eyes

Someone take the camera away from that crazy lady!! Yes, many a day it's more often in my hands than not and because of that, i have gotten some cool shots. Well, not to everyone though, it's usually just personal entertainment in having gotten a cool pic, lol :)  

Duncan, my standard poodle, is creme colored with some apricot streaks at his ears, eyes, and a small bit at his lucious tail which i have not had docked: it's long and curly hair. Well, last time he got groomed they had to take down more on his head and ears because there were some mats and i opt for comfort over beauty and told them not to try to get the mats out, just cut. So, I was looking at him a couple weeks ago and in the sunshine i saw this wonderful bit of very curly red hair above his eyes. Yes! My Duncan has the most awesome long, curly, red eyelashes, of all things!!!

My toy poodle Megan who passed last year had spotted coloration on her paw pads, "spots" if you will. She loved playing ball, could catch a ball mid-air off a bounce, could "kick" a ball with her front paws to send it flying from underneath the sofa if i rolled it to her, oh my so many good memories... She loved broccoli. My mini-toy red poodle Fred has deep red color around his eyes and muzzle, a bit like a racoon.  He's a rescue and when he came to me, everything went into his mouth with a playful bite so I taught him to "kiss" and hold his teeth back, so now he is the most kissy-est pup!! Friendly, loving, he thinks the world was created to play with him and give him love...not a bad perspective, really... And he loves tea with milk, earl grey hot or any other that's one hand. Duncan is still a puppy, so thus far I can only say that he loves sitting on the back porch, watching the birds. He loves tea and colby jack cheese.  He loves his 2 cookies and massage before bedtime and walks in the house with his head close to my hand. I could probably write on and on about these and other fur babies in my life but, this piece was supposed to be about Duncan's eyelashes.  Why I needed to lay down a background picture, well, it just seemed to naturally fit.  

As a loving mother would see each of her children in his or her own light, and hold in awe each's idiosyncrasies and gifts, this is how i see my fur babies. Maybe if I had grandchildren or more than 1 child, I'd spend less time with my pups.  Crazy lady... lol!

as always, thanx for stopping by :)

More of My Critters

I visited The Daily Texture yesterday and bought a few goodies. Needless to say I was excited to try a couple of the textures (overlays/backgrounds) out. Those of you who have followed me for any length know that fauna of all sorts keep me frequently amused. I had extracted the white owl and the cow some time ago but have not been able to create a background that pleased me. Using these new textures from the artist/photogrpher Jai Johnson at The Daily Texture, I created these 2 new layouts. I'm happy with them, really,  and though they are different from what I usually do, I like them and I love the new textures.  

Thanx all for stopping by to take a peek!

Take a Word Challenge - Fly

Credits:  Pic is mine of neighbor's Dogwood this year, hummingbird is adobe stock, 
overlays from 2lil owls

Words and Poems

My words hover over the paper
like hummingbirds
too skittish to land.
Words won't be gulled 
by red sugar water.
A poem must feed
on the clear nectar of the heart
to find its way to the page.

-Beryl Dov

As always, thanks for stopping by :)

Monochrome for Take a Word Challenge

Definitely difficult challenge...what would look good in what color? Water came to mind and i stayed with it, but looking at all the other entries, any topic could have worked well, and any color could have been used successfully too!

As always, thanx for stopping by to take a peek!

Zetti Me

Ok, I work differently and just pour stuff i like onto the PS pallette and then let it flow, deleting and adding along the way.  With this bad habit, it's sometimes hard to recall from which folder I grabbed a particular elment.  Here's my credit list, clearly cannot recall where I got the flowers or the chicken, though I think it's from one of Hollie's kits...

TFS: Funky Fairies, Little houses, Purple journal cards, My little Queendom, Holliewood: Somewhere else,
