Don't take me Seriously

It is difficult to communicate via the written word so I just want to say.  Don't take me seriously!
Everything  I say is with a silly smile on my face and a twinkle in the eye!
I found these fun forms on line today...............

 I think they are a lot of fun!
Have a great day!

Thrift shop treasures

Today I went to the thrift shop in search of cool stuff for photo-shoots,photography and digital  photo make-overs being my latest passion....................
I don't know how or when I will use this stuff but you never know when it will be just the thing you were looking for!

this little cup is only about an inch high though you can't tell by the photo

the little angel is the lid to  a rose carved container

pink champagne anyone?
 I ordered my new camera today , I chose a Nikon 1J1,its for beginners who want to take better shots.
I was sold when I read two things "anti shake" and "thinks for itself"."Fast" was another feature that was important to me.
I did get my smart daughter to look at the specs before ordering.
Have a great day!
It should be here in a week,I am sooo excited!

Green Day

photo challenge,click to go to source

Planted  these 5 yrs ago and haven't had to touch them since

in my pond
on my lawn

attempting a challenge with Beyond Layers, these are in my garden

This is a new beginning for me a trying to find my niche exercise, I am not a photographer but I don't see why that should stop me from phoughing these fertile fields for like- minded people. A lot of people my age(61yo) are not PC friendly and I feel like a sad minority. Please say hello while you are here!

I see you at last! Welcome!

1. What makes you happy?….. in 5 words or less….?
2. Which talent would you most like to have?
3. Which words or phrases do you overuse most?
4. What is your favorite movie, book or both?
5. If you could go anywhere in the world for a creative retreat where might it be?

  1. Nature (one word) makes me happy, sunshine, the ocean, clouds, plants, animals and birds all fill me with awe and wonder and make me happy to be alive.

    2.   The ability to visually abbreviate, see and portray the true essence of things.

    3.          "Yes/no" ( it means yes, I understand what you are saying but no, I don't agree)

 4. I loved "In the Land of Blood and Honey" directed by Angelina Jolie. I loved that they used local actors and the raw conflicting emotions. Also it was an insight into a war I knew little about.
I also enjoyed Game of Thrones on TV and Homeland and the TV series "Work of art."

just to see if  you are paying attention LOL!

Book: A Fine Balance, the second book by Rohinton Mistry. Set in Mumbai, India
between 1975 and 1984 during the turmoil of The Emergency, a period of expanded government power and crackdowns on civil liberties, this book is about four characters from varied backgrounds—Dina Dalal, Ishvar Darji, his nephew Omprakash Darji and the young student Maneck Kohlah—who come together and develop a bond.Winner of the Giller Prize.
I read this book when my son was ill, it took some doing but it was well worth it!

5. I love solitude and I love the sense of lives gone before me that you get in a really old house, so I am supposing a ruin of a previous civilization in a remote and beautiful place would tick all my boxes. maybe Easter Island or somewhere like that?
Thanks for coming over,

 grab a cuppa

 and stay a while, look around and  while I am away at your place checking out your answers and getting to know you better, help yourself to a cake!

I would love it if you left a comment?

Have  great Day!

PS. While you are here do you think I should change the name to NOT just another middleaged blogger to create more interest?Let me know what you think?
