in the style of Maud Starr, aka Heather Murray

Heather Murray is a Chatsworth Ontario, Canada mixed media artist who is inspired and driven to create. She exhibits, sells locally and internationally and her work is in collections worldwide.
 A simpler world is her vision .  A world where good hearts rule She cuts pastes, paints and assembles what moves her and captures her attention.   Collage and assemblage bring out the inner scavenger in her, and she savours discarded finds and utilizes found objects in new enticing ways.

Take a word--Winter

Blue Winter

Winter uses all the blues there are.
One shade of blue for water, one for ice,
Another blue for shadows over snow.
The clear or cloudy sky uses blue twice-
Both different blues. And hills row after row
Are colored blue according to how for.
You know the bluejay's double-blur device
Shows best when there are no green leaves to show.
And Sirius is a winterbluegreen star

SPA--The Holly and the Ivy

Here is my postcard for this week's theme. I was without a computer for several weeks while mine was being repaired after being hacked.I lost a lot of stuff that was not backed up, but ...oh I get to go find NEW stuff!
Anyhow, the image is from the Graphics Fairy, and the rest from Google Images. the music is the carol, "The Holly and the Ivy."

Keeping Christmas in our Hearts

Yesterday my husband got to play Santa at the Connellsville Elks!

This is what he posted on Facebook,

"Yesterday I put on my super hero costume and played Santa at the Connellsville Elks Christmas Party. Unless you have been lucky you have no idea what a pleasure it can be to fascinate and delight a room full of kids, just by speaking kindly with them. Thank you, Elks."
