***imagination is in the eye of the soul***

we can be who we really want to be only if we can de-clutter ourselves.....

costumes and jewels can camouflage but cannot hide what others see

origianl images from but I have altered them for my artwork

take time to reflect and know that others can see you too.....

***since here last***

since I was here last I have been getting creative finishing making my puppet and a paper doll....
watching the lime trees coming into blossom and smelling the divine perfume drifting on an evening breeze....
since I was here last I have had me time reading and thinking and taking photos....working and shopping and cooking
since I was here last the apricot tree has produced it's first abundant crop after being planted for 16 years.....needless to say I have been indulging
since I was here last I have enjoyed family times with daughter one....eating and chatting and sharing thoughts and plans

since I was here last I have been re evaluating my life plans my goals and my dreams....what is important and what is not
and since I was here last I have been packing up boxes with books and bedding and my favourite textiles....why? you may wonder....well I will tell you soon.....but not just yet.....not just yet....

***bastille birthday gifts***

one of which was this lens for my camera

the other was a drive out for supper

after which we walked along st. ouen's beach and saw a storm brewing

next door to here is where I chose my roberts revival radio in cream

and then I decided to play with photoshop

so there you have it a pretty chilled day for me tho I know a little sad for some....

***pretty maids all in a row***

a couple of weeks ago we went down to a little cove on the island where these old maids were lined up on the quay ready and waiting for their next trip out..... they are used for towing small fishing boats down to the beach which are then launched into the sea....
they appear to posses their own personalities which inspired me to take their fact I almost felt like I had to ask their permission first....can you imagine any passer-by over hearing me talking to a bunch of rusty old metal relics?....they would have thought me certifiable...
perhaps i am!!

***bringing back Billie-Jean***

and memories of times long past....that is why I wanted to post this clip as it holds many memories for me as well as others of that I can be sure....... Micheal will be missed by millions and even tho I was never a huge fan of his I really liked a lot of his music and considered his dancing second to none....he will be remembered in whatever capacity people want to remember him......and whether good or bad...he will remain a LEGEND...
