CAUTION: Wear gloves.....

 Went out to take a picture of my peonies and found a surprise in the tiger lilies.....

a litter of feral kittens that had wandered out from under the back deck.  We caught 3 of them (wearing gloves) but, the others ran back under.  I worried about them all day in the heat with no water but couldn't get them to come out.  Not sure what we are going to do, too much stress with Gary's accident now.

Did remember to get a pic of the peony....

Girls Just Want to Have Fun

While leafing through one of my mags I came across an ad for Manolo Blahnik shoes and several ads of models wearing designer clothes when an idea for a collage formed,,grew and wouldn't let go until I finished.  Years ago a movie was made starring 2 very young ladies, Helen Hunt and Sarah Jessica Parker called Girls Just Want To Have Fun.  Loved the movie and loved the song.  I started clipping ideas and putting them in my collage pile.   This was my first collage so I wasn't sure what I was doing but arranged, rearranged, painted, used oil pastels, etc until I was happy with the end results.  I was fortunate to find a pic of SJP but ended covering it up but, I know it's there.  Let me know what you think.

Signed up for the art journal e-class In the Sun....Looking forward to it.
