What does this Mean To You?

Sew I have been trying to learn.. Why just because I love old fabric and love the color of thread running through fabric, with words of poetry written on the old worn fabric..No it will not be perfect, but it is what I want it to be..Just like me imperfect but with inner beauty....LOL...
So you ask why this little tiny tie and the words Tie On One..If you are from the south there is a saying He or She really tied one on..Which means really had too much to drink...

No, this is not what this one means..First I love ties, I collect them mostly vintage and strange.
I wear them sometimes.
is really a strong word and to put around ones neck and to tie it on.
You are creating a bond. To unite in a relationship where it be of Love or Friendship. You are making a connection of two things. An attachment..
So many words can relate to the word tie.. So to me it is just a symbol of Life..
All these words are needed where it be in friendship or Love. Which really are just one word created into one.

Have a good week and tie one on and see how it feels..

What does your Throne look like???????

This done in pastel..I love pastel yet I always never work in it..When I do I remember that I love to work in the touch of its softness and bold beautiful colors .
I have been working in my house trying to motivate my self and paint pieces of furniture that have been waiting..I finished one piece and it is red and I love it..It was my great grandmother's. I do hope she would approve that I painted her furniture Red.
So this piece which is not perfect but it is for me and it made me think ..To be a Queen you must have a throne... Throne's can come in all sizes and shapes. So tell me girls what does your throne look like?

Have a great weekend.
May you always dream in Color.
There is but one cause of human failure, and that is man's lack of faith in his true self.......William James

Beauty of Corrosion



Corrosion.. These are photos taken through the walk of yesterday.
All Nature is but Art, unknown to thee,
All chance, direction, which thous canst not see.
All discord, harmony not understood.
All partial evil, universal good.
And, spite of pride, in erring reason's spite.
One truth is clear, Whatever Is, Is Right.
Alexander Pope...

Dreams and Fears

For our dreams sometime haunt us. Dreamers and believers of dreams when they awake and recall the dreams. I pick up the pen to recall my dreams seeing them and remember the fear of them and the not knowing what they mean to us.. Traveling at the speed of light locked inside trying to get out realizing I am alone and trapped. ..Then we come unto another fear the door and not knowing what is behind it and when we do enter the rain is pouring down so hard and we can not see only feel the darkness and feel the cold of the rain that is soaking our body..Walking toward nothing but hoping for peace and light..Then until we realize I am dreaming, wake up, wake up..Is dawn..Your are traveling in the spirit world..

This piece is titled Spirit...It is a dream and sometimes our dreams are fears. Fears are large at times and they make the night long when we are traveling in the Spirit World of the Unknown.

May your dreams be of peaceful things but when they are not and are filled with fear..Just realize I am dreaming...Wake UP....And hope it is just a dream.

The sound fear,
the door with no knob.
