The fanciest couple

The Westons visiting the Paris Salon

Emma and George Weston were very fond of their elegance and when they went out they always took a time choosing the perfect outfit for the event. Back in those days, they were considered quite eccentric, especially when it took to hats, but, as wealthy as they were, nobody cared.

I had fun doing this digital collage to this week Take a Word theme: HATS.

Background is a photo of the Salon de Paris in 1869. His hat, their brooches and the texture by Finecrafted Designs. Lady on left is a Dover sample. Lady on right was provided by Art Creation Friday in one of their challenges. Her fancy hat came from a plate of a 1900 magazine . I can't remember where the gourgeous couple came from.

My sweet cherubs

Hi! These sweeties resting in their clouds are my entry for this week Take a Word challenge: ANGEL. 

The lovely cherubs are old B&W photos offered by Jamie Miller on Art-e-logy. I've fix them up a bit and put a little color. Clouds are brushes by redhedsotck. Quote by Terri Guillemets. Background is a free wallpaper.

Green: Mata Atlântica

Hi, folks. As the theme this week on Take a Word is GREEN, I decided to introduce you to a tiny bit of the Mata Atlântica, or at least, some of its inhabitants. A green paradise that we almost completely destroyed. Nowadays, the little that is left  is protected.

I used five photos to compose this collage, two of them by Luis Florit; I couldn't identify the authors of the other photos.

Sweet odd couple

- I love you.
- Harold... that's wonderful. Go and love some more.

Hi, blogfriends! I finally finished my essay (not very good, must admit).

Harold and Maude are my sweet odd couple. I love that old crazy lady and morbid needy Harold. So I imagined them enjoying a heavenly garden in a borrowed bike. :)

This is my contribution to this week theme in Three Muses: COUPLES.
