When sightseeing in Glasgow I came across this interesting art mural. I love wall art! This one happened to be on a building right next to the tour bus I was about to get on, so I didn’t get to see if Glasgow had a plethora of wall artists or if this was just one of a few. I came across an interesting article titled The Wonderful World of Glasgow Street Art and Graffiti. It looks like there is plenty of wall art in Glasgow, so I’ll definitely keep my eyes peeled on my next visit to this wonderful city!

Orange You Glad It’s Friday!
There were even some creatures at the Artisan’s Fair!
One more week till Spring!
Here’s a puzzle I made this past week; or I should say, finished, as it took me more than a week to put together!
This is a watercolor pencil drawing of my back patio overlooking the woods and lawn. In a few months my little garden should be aburst with color – couple of hibiscus, rose bushes, Cape daisies, gladioli, and ornamental grasses and hosta.
Tender flowers bloom
Grass grows green and bright
Spring is almost here
It seems like Friday was just a few days ago. My, how time flies when you are having fun! I am sharing with Orange You Glad It’s Friday.
Since Autumn is coming up this month I made a little Autumn Mini Bird House. It’s in my Etsy store Mosaic This And That.
And last year I made a mosaic butterfly that you can put on the wall and hang your keys on it. It took from last year to last week for me to finish it – and all that I had to do was grout it! But now I’m inspired to do some more projects. I started painting a small jewelry box today but haven’t decided whether I want to mosaic it, decoupage it, or or….. Usually I’ll start working on a piece and somewhere take a sharp turn in another direction and when it’s finished it doesn’t look anything like what I started to do. But sometimes that’s what it takes – just get started and then fresh ideas come to you!
Have a nice weekend!
Remember the 1965 New York World’s Fair? I do. I lived in Hialeah, Florida at the time and Mom lived in Miami. When she heard New York was going to have a World’s Fair she applied for a job right away – and got one in Germany’s Rathskaller serving beer. After it opened and she had a brief vacation time, she invited me to come stay with her so she could show me the Fair and New York.
I flew up and stayed with her for several days. We took in the whole World’s Fair; I remember seeing “It’s a Small World” – the same one they have in Disney World. It was quite exciting! Also, Mother took me to see the Rockette’s in Radio City Hall and afterward we ate in Sardi’s Restaurant. I’ll never forget my dinner was turkey tetrazzini – absolutely delicious! It’s hard to believe it is close to fifty years since then!! Where in the world does the time go?
Go to Flashback Friday if you’d like to see more flashbacks in history!
While looking for some old photos for Flashback Friday I came across some negatives that I converted to digital prints – but had them on the wrong setting or something (can’t remember exactly how it happened to tell you the truth!) and ended up with negatives in my computer. I had a lot of fun seeing what I could do with them. If I had wanted to turn them into positive prints Picasa has an invert which will turn a negative into a positive – or vice-versa.
