She has several ways to win.

Good Luck!!

Happy Halloween from both of us!!!



Happy Monday- Drive by photographer

Happy Monday. Drive by photographer, Marie Segal here.

Hope you all are having a wonderful holiday weekend (4th of July here in the
good ole USA).

We will resume life tomorrow. The governmental offices are closed and the
post office is closed, Ups will not deliver or pick up, but spending money is
allowed. All stores will be open at least sometime during the day today and most
likely they will be holding huge holiday sales to get you to come in and spend
the money you do not have! I live in California, a couple of the people might
have money though. They all live in Hollywood. ;-D

Tonight my one cat will be buried as far as she can get somewhere,
freaking out about the noise. Thunderstorms and fireworks do this to her.

It is the birth of our nation.

Happy Birthday Nation!!

Eat hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, chips, coleslaw, fruit salad, corn,
watermelon, and do not for get the dessert, till you are in a coma! Then go
shopping. ;-D

I thought since this is the day that commemorates the birth of our nation,
what better place to show you than pictures of West Virginia and Virginia?

I took these from a moving vehicle so this qualifies me as a drive by

Those red, white, and blue banners hanging from the porch are the thing to do
in this area.

What a gorgeous home and yard. I am, though, curious to know the significance
of the horse. Ah, the perils of drive by photography.

Cemeteries and rock buildings are also a part of this area. I approve, it
looks so nice, doesn’t it?

This one was especially nice.

Cemeteries are everywhere actually. Hey, I see some rock on that building on
the right too!

Churches are also prevalent. Everywhere.

Some of the issues of drive by photography are the angles your wrist and
camera has to be in to take photos. ;-D I photoshoped for you though.

This looks like it might have been a church at one time! Just a beautiful
place. Missed the front of it though, moving too fast.

The beauty of the land must have made our ancestors cry after being in a boat
for months and months.

I wonder what they would think of the massive houses now?

This land is our land and it is a gorgeous place, sometimes you just have to
search it out. We need to cherish it and take care of it. Look for the beauty
where you live, it is there.

Happy 4th of July!!


Have a very Merry, all of you!

This is what helped my holiday blues, good friends, cookies and a dieter’s nightmare.

Oh and Christmas music.

Whatever winter Holiday you celebrate, whatever winter Holiday you have celebrated, or whatever winter Holiday you are going to celebrate, may it be with people you love.

May there be food in your stomach and heat in your hearth.

May you have friends by your side.

May you have love in your heart.

My heart is filled with gratitude for each and every one of you!

I sometimes forget that when a door to change is getting ready to appear that the change feels intense and chaotic right before the opening.

This is almost a daily occurrence lately, do you feel it too?

It does not mean it is bad, just uncomfortable.

Maybe the universe is conspiring to help me.

Ya, I think I will choose to think that one!

Love and huge hugs to you all.

I will be back soon to show you some of what I did over the holidays and getting ready for it.

Thank you to two beautiful women who shared their day with me.

They know who they are.

You helped so much!


I am taking a small break

Tattoo you new in my shop art from my heart. I can still get it to youin time in the states ;-D

I am tired and in need of a small break to catch up on things.

Take some time for myself and just take some of the pressure off.

I also need to get the caca off my desk so I can keep working. LOL!

It seems like I have been blogging non-stop lately.

I am not taking long and I will probably post again this weekend.

I have some new stuff in my shop Art from my heart if you want to check it out, I am grateful for you looking.

I will see you soon, all of you have a wonderful friday.

I am searching for some holiday cheer, see you soon!!

Love and hugs.
