Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Going Surreal

marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream; also :unbelievable

Digitalmania is having us dig deep into our imaginations
 having us create in the style of Liz Huston.  I always have so much
fun with these.  

Most elements are from Sharing Tubes or Googled.

Am I Blue......No

Maybe a little tired but not blue.  I've just returned from
a trip to see my family.  My first stop was LA to see my daughter.

Next stop Reno to see my son.


And, last to Montana to see my mother.

I had a wonderful time.   

I have more pictures that I will share along the way.

Sticking with sharing pictures this is my entry for

Sail Away to Fantasyland

Sailing Away with Crazy Amigo Challenge.
Theme Flags

Sail Away to Fantasyland

My banner/flag is made from a picture of gossamer fabric that I found
on Google Images.   I wanted something frilly and this worked perfectly.
Looking at it now, the banner reminds me of aprons hanging on
the line to dry.

Barbara Streisand sang two of my very favorite songs
about memories.  

Light the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were
Scattered pictures
Of the smiles we left behind
Smiles we gave to one another
For the way we were

From the movie "The Way We Were".   


Memory, all alone in the moonlight
I can smile at the old days, I was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

From the stage play "Cats".

My digital collage using beautiful browns.

Shades of Brown
Question: What is a monochromatic color scheme?
Answer: monochromatic color scheme uses a single color on most every surface. In this type of scheme, various darker shades, grayer tones, and paler tints of the main color may be included in the palette. In addition, the one color is often paired with white or another neutral.
Now, don't be thinking it sounds dull because it isn't.   

Sunny Yellow

Firery Red
Elegant Purple
Our interior is painted in pastel is painted a
lovely lavender similar to the last paint chip.  

The 3D cube and kaleidocope were done in 
LunaPic using the following images.

By the Numbers

I tried so many things before I ended up with this for
Take a Word and their numbers challenge.
Who would've thought working with numbers would be so
difficult.   But, then, I've never been really good with numbers or math.

Vintage Fashion

is a new to me challenge.  I love their
Vintage Fashion theme this week.

I've been doing some clothes shopping these last
few days.  The Labor Day sales were really terrific.
I decided I needed a few new things to spark up
my wardrobe for my upcoming trip.   I'll be on my
round robin trip to see my daughter in LA, my son in
Reno NV and mom in Montana.  I think I'll be in the air as
much as I'll be on the ground.    That's what I get for moving
way over here to South Carolina.
