Vintage Lady of Leisure


I decorated the frame with
 yellow and blue flowers because
this vintage lady reminded me of a
late morning riser that has just
woke up  and found a vase of  
fresh cut flowers on her nightstand.  
 Perhaps her husband or  maybe a
"Secret Admirer" left them for her !!
But the look she has
on her face is awfully coy...
Discrett amoureux de loin!!!
That's what I think!!!

A Lovely Lady showing off her Vintage Lingerie

The beach scene behind her reminds me
that Summer is almost gone and
Fall is right around the corner!

Enjoy these last days of summer! 

Our life is so fleeting...
it only makes sense to live
every day as if it were our last
with the ones we love the most! 

Have a great weekend!

In case you haven't heard, Let me tell you about "THE "BLOG GUIDE BOOK"!

You'll Love This Site I Found!!!

When I first set up my web sites
and began writing my first posts,
 something incredible happened that 
completely caught me by surprise!

I never expected to bond so quickly with
so many special people that I have met
while sharing my vintage images and
posting about my artistic endeavors!
I have never met these people
 in person but  the close feelings
I share with them is the same feelings
 I share with  my friends that live
within miles from my home!

 We share our dreams,
our struggles, our joys, our fears,
 and give one another the courage to make a
difference in other lives as well as our own!

Remember "Field Of  Dreams"?

We all have dreams and as we
write daily and post about what we
most want out of life, and somehow,
many special people discover your blog site
 and are always there to give you the
 motivation and inspiration to help
make those dreams come true!

What a wonderful world we blog in!

what if I told you I have found a place
that will help direct more of those
 "special people" to your site,
help you learn more about how
 to create a successful blog,
how to network and meet new people,
easy ways to direct people to your site,
and the access to find new blogs that interest you!

Sounds Great? Right?

 The other day I was visiting some of
my favorite blogs and saw this
blog button on a side bar.

I was curious and immediately clicked,
and like Alice In Wonderland,
I found a wonderful web site,

 The Blog Guidebook

This great site is  owned and operated by
Sarah and Lynsay and they have filled it
to the brim with all kinds of nice
 "Busy Bee"

What I  liked about
The Blog Guide Book Site
was the
Help Center

 a question about,
free backgrounds
to give your blog  some extra pizzazz,
and the
 Give-Away List
becuase I would like to post several
 Give-aways in the future and having the
 opportunity to  place my Give-Away info
