I have been so inclined by looking at other art and feeling like it was high time to get off my dead and do a few soulful peices that I have been wanting to create.
I ran across this picture of the older couple who are still close together and holding hands so warmly for their picture, it made me envious of their will....
wether it 's truth or just the fiction running amuck in my brain it would be wonderful to know you could have but one true love in this life.
Something that would stick like glue with a little hard work...... and just exist forever!
Hence the Name of this peice is "Promise of Love Everlasting".
In a throw away society wouldn't it be kvell to have such promise.....
I guess somewhere in my ramblings I should have established where and why this came about. I had done these pictures of old abandoned ..... worn out..... places many moons ago. They are my favorites and a series thet is near & dear to me.
It's a group I keep coming back to because let's face it they are how I usually feel anymore in this life.
It just seems to me that these are more serene moments where there is only you & your soul standing in the middle of nowhere, wind whistling, sunlight warm on your face and no more trouble of everyday life to procure.
Just you the sunlight and the wind wondering aimlessly about just happy to breath in and breath out, no cares , and no worries.
Of course it could be that I have been listening to Mad World by Gary Jules (Tears for Fears)
Anyway, the apples signfy love, prosperity, fertility, and growth. the feather is a uplifting of thoughts. The water signifies keeping their love above water and eventhough there are some ripples they can still see their reflection as a couple together still holding on. Life is about keeping it all afloat whether it is in the past, present or future ......
Some days it's sitting on that sill waiting for you to notice it's presence
but wherever you are, it's there waiting for you..... you just have look through the darkened room and notice.
OK. enough of this deep dark meaning behind my merky mind.
I hope that you will enjoy the images.

hmmmm she is going to be on one tag one locket and she will also be part of a larger collage I like her so much! Yeah! I always fall in love with some of my creations it almost makes me giddy! LOL. I almost think I should do just a whole wall of heads...... My children may go into protest they always claim they 're being watched...... is that a bad thing? (I have a few flea market buys of people I don't know hanging on my walls BECAUSE I like them! my oldest claims it's creeepy..... so far be it from me to make her more paranoid..... *enter evil laugh* moohahahaha ~evil mom! )
OK. anyway..... I don't go into steps they are mine as well as my creation so just let me infringe this is a copyright of mine just in case the zillion watermarks aren't reflecting that.... sorry but some people don't know that NO MEANS NO!!!!!
OK. here is my rant for the day ~since another blog brought it up (well about the gym...)
What is with people who go to the gym & wear the skanky-est cheap ass floral perfume??? seriously I'm on the next treadmill gasping for air here! OMG!!!! seriously when you sweat the stuff personifies!!!! I'm half way through my workout and unable to stop my pace and this chick who is super runner gets on the next treadmill with the worst cheap ass perfume..... dear god just kill me! WHOA! I would almost rather smell BO for godsakes! and the thing is your breathing deeply & can't hold your breath..... dear god just shoot me! (did I just say that again?) any how I go & do my thing after the gagging at the treadmill and I'm about to leave and three little girls are walking the track & one of them has some nasty cheap perfume on too..... and she doesn't just pass me they kinda linger so I canNOT pass them prolonging the torture! (it's kinda like being stuck next to a pig truck in rush hour while your extremely hung over!!! yes, I've been there too! right after the all you can eat burgers (don't know if those are good are not oops!) and all the beer you can drink for $5. nite it was seriously ugly!!!!)
BUT dear god was there a perfume giveaway or was there just a memo on how to torture me at the gym circulating without my knowledge???? DAM!!!!
and what is a potlicker anyway??? sorry a co-worker just said it & wouldn't give me his 10 min definition.... but then do I really want to know??? I'm going with Nooooooo. hmmm OK. I'm done ranting (I think)
anyway, so I'm off to the races so much time so little to see.... stop wait ~reverse that!
you can see how my day is going to be!!!!!!!

My my where are my manners!!! at any rate I have a few I can show off today..... Can you tell they are dieing for SpRiNg to have sprung??? (these lovely ladies went to a swap~ however they have some friends who are about to emerge on the scene they will first be announced on flickr and make thier appearance on ebay! somewhere towards the end of this week.... I Hope!)
I am also in the "experimental stages" of pickling these lovelies...... so they may accompany you and see the world! But I don't know as of yet if I have it all quite right! Hmmmm they are tricky little ones and it's hard to get them to sit quite right when they are wiggleing so much! I may have to wait & see when they are right between that place where they are awake & asleep so they will be more inclined to let me work!!!! But here's the girl who gave me a fight! Mercy! she was a tough one to pickle! but still isn't she lovely just the same? Hopefully I shall have some answers soon so these wee little ones maybe on thier merry way! (to ebay that is! you''ll have to watch my flickr for a heads up though..... you'll only have 5 days once they come out to play!!!) these look to be most promising too! she looks far better than her captured reflection......
Oh what is a girl to do!?!
