Virgins, Creativity & Gratitude #7

 This has been a surreal journey 
of dizzying heights, I'm seeing Mary
from every angle in all her
beauteous forms.
Thinking on Mary and the glitter
of the season as I leafed through
some magazines I couldn't
 resist the temptation to tear a few pages 
for my favourite art-form collage.

Day 7 contribution ~
Collage Mary, Queen of the Heavens

It also happens to be my sister's wedding anniversary,
we are out celebrating tonight,
I dedicate this collage to Dallas who was a
beauty queen herself once,
and still is!

Grateful for sister love.

'Virgin a Day'

Love your creativity. Is that your sister's photo in the center. Looks like a real person. My only sister died at age 32 when I was 34. That was almost 40 years ago. She is a saint in heaven to me. This makes me think of her.Blessings

Love your Mary collage!!!
Sue,
This is your creativity at its best. So beautiful and full of love and light. I am so uplifted by it. And of course it has to do with the celebration of a loved one. You are so connected to family and Mary has made that connection ever stronger. I love the butterflies in this collage ~transformation, always transformation and dreaming forward. Beautiful! Thank you for your lovely words today. I couldn't get here till now because of work. Much love to you and have fun tonight with your sister.
xoxo,
Noelle
Collage is my own favorite art medium and I love your modern day Mary. Congratulations to your sister-in-law and brother.

Hello

A friendly street light illuminates the dark path as does bright hellos! Just dropping in dears to say hello to all at Haiku my Heart, everyone in the haiku home, to say you are never far away from my thoughts those of you in the circle of friends in the birthplace of my ongoing love for small words with large meaning. Have a lovely weekend... love from foxysue Recuerda mi Corazon

Gathering Myself

Today I'm taking a little me time, doing what I love to do, just digital doodling. My mind has been on dolls, motherhood, Mary and the coming season. Recently an acquaintance posted about  ' Rag Doll ',  this is me at the moment, I feel a bit like a rag doll, the stuffing has been knocked out a little. So I'm taking time to just be, to gather myself, to see where I can patch things up a bit, maybe a dash of rouge will do the trick!  I'm giving myself some 'Mary mother love'. I'm sending back my thanks via Virgin a Day Recuerda mi Corazon I once had a sweet little doll, dears, The prettiest doll in the world; Her cheeks were so red and so white; dears, And her hair was so charmingly curled. But I lost my poor little doll, dears, As I played in the heath one day; And I cried for her more than a week, dears; But I never could find where she lay. I found my poor

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends... By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering... On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'
