Do you see what I see?

Hello everyone! Well, I am sorry about that blimp in my last post. It was typed in a flurry of emotion and Cinner you were right! I was far too busy today to even remember writing about it last night.

Until I went for a snoop on my bloggity blog blog, to find lovely words of uplifting thoughts and kindness. THANK YOU. I am sitting here now thinking, "Sheesh, you are a silly fool, Claire"I dare not read over the post. I am a wee bit embarrassed. you know, like the morning after the night before, with blurry visions of a drunken karaoke session in a dive, and snatching the microphone, while security dragged me to the exit. You know, that kind of feeling.

So let happiness reign on this blog again, and I thought I would rev it up by showing these to you. Well it is the month of November and over here, that means fireworks for Guy Fawkes night. And boy, we were in for a treat. Big fella and I were blessed and lucky enough to have a fireworks displays fill through our windows as we sat in the living room one night. I immediately grabbed my trusty point and shoot and snapped away. Here is watch I captured.
This is what the pictures generally looked like before I got my mucky paws on the crop picture button! No photo shop though, I am too afraid and IT stupid to join forces with yet. It could end up in disaster.
But here's what my wee eyes could see: (By cropping the picture hopefully you will see as well! If not, I am may be going mad.)


Green butterfly fairy

Mermaid fairies floating through a waterfall

The tree of oak folkMidnight scorpion

A deep sea octopusThe star that leads the way
and a fairy looking through my window!
Thank you once again for your lovely thoughts, and for coming here to take the time to read my words! You are brave! I hope all is well in your world!

Bella Sinclair said...

Ooooh! Fiery delights right outside your window, just for you! I love that you were able to see a fantasy parade in the sky.

Is there a name for the wee lass who often appears in my drawings? Well, a lot of times, I draw my personal thoughts or fantasies, so....

As I count my blessings this Thanksgiving, I am grateful to know you. As weird as it sounds, I think bloggers are a bit more genuine in their affection and respect for each other. It's a nicer place to be. :)
