The Three Muses Challenge - Book

When I saw the challenge last week my mind instantly went blanc. I have so many books that my house is a firehazard. Books are everywhere in my house and you might have guessed I love to read. There isnt really a subject that doesnt interest me. Except math. Numbers make me very nervous. So anyway, my mind went from a ziljon ideas to no idea in a second. And it stayed on no ideas for a week. lol. Still I hope you like the pic I made. Enjoy.

Odd Couple - The Three Muses Challenge

The steampunk grandparents got me going. But I "steampunked" my cat which was great fun.  Kitty has gotten a lot of extra layers. Then since it was about couples I needed a side-kick for her. I've gone through so many ideas but since I have always been a huge fan of 'Are you Being Served' and Molly Sugden I grabbed my chance. I set out with her head and started ading the body. That was so much fun. I went from robocop to tutu's, from clowns to victorian. The arms and legs were much the same journey.

For those who know "Are you being served" is the picture ofcourse not an 'odd couple' since Mrs. Slocombe always talked about her.. 'cat'. But no matter, I think Mrs. S and my cat are the perfect odd couple.

One important thing; By no means do I want or have I intended to insult anyone with this picture. If you feel offended by the use of the head of Molly Sugden as her character Mrs. Slocombe, please let me know and I will remove the picture immediatly.

So with this all said, enjoy.

Take a Word Challenge - Childhood

This picture is special to me. The two pages in the book are pictures taken by me from an old puzzle-blocks-thingie. I have no idea how it is called. Its a puzzle I have as long as I can remember and there are 6 puzzles to be made, all fairytales. As a kid I was always drawn in by fairytales and used to imagine I lived in the fairytale world so I made this picture for the challenge childhood.

All pictures used are from my private collection with exception of the bubble brushes.

The file is megabig. I am sorry for that. I tried cropping and resizing it, but the picture is best at this size. So a Big picture. Enjoy.

Credits for the bubble brushes:

The cow once more

My faithfull cow went to the beach once more, this time in the company of a very special lady, my mum. It is the same picture I used for mum & dad in the challenge. I have added stuff that was typical of her. She was fun loving and did weird things and the car really went into the water at one point. So a rather personal picture. Enjoy!

I want to thank a dear friend of mine, Bunneh, for giving me the inspiration for this picture.

Penny Farthing a voyage

This pic started out as a tribute to the penny farthing. Alas, it ended as a nightmare. Quite a jump I'd say.

It all started because the gentleman started dedicating more and more time with his penny farthing. Soon after he joined some club. This club, or rather a society, is only wispered about and there is no proof to be found it ever really exsisted or who the members were. Rumours teach us that only certain gentlemen could join and that there was some dark, sinister initiation ritual. But again, nothing is sure. Only rumours.

His wife was soon tired of this all and pressed her man to give her more attention. Did he listen? As the picture tells you, he did not. The lady, tired of begging for attention from her husband, drove out with her trusted aunt to the 'wise woman' who lived a few miles out of town. There she bought a spell. Shortly after she started to grow roses. The rest of the story is rather gruesome and maybe will be told some other time. For now it is left to your own imagination what the spell evoked. Enjoy.

The cow and the blanket

When I was a little girl, way way way back, my aunt used to tell me a bedtime story about a cow. This cow lived in a paddock just as other cows but This cow was not an ordinary cow. She liked to paint her toenails and longed to go to the salon to get her hair done.

One day she decided she had to get a warm, nice soft blanket. She wanted a pink one. (it might be a coincidence, but at the time that story was told to me, I had pink blankets!). Anyway, one day the cow walked to town and marvelled about all the nice things you could buy there. She even decided to go to a lunchroom to get a nice glas of 'chocomelk'. It might be again a total coincidence that I drank gallons of that stuff when I was a kid.

So, the cow got her nice, soft, pink blanky in the end and this story, when I think about it, still makes me smile and takes me back to those nights with my aunt. It inspired me to make the pictures below. Enjoy.

As you can see the cows are protected so the internet wont be invaded by my cows. If you feel you just have to have a picture, contact and me please and maybe you can convince me to remove the ugly layer.
