Saturday Evening Post Fest...

I accepted the invitation by Dorothy at Musings at 86 and went to the Saturday Evening Post Blog Fest. It was great fun. And there is a lot of great blog posts to be read from the last year. Mine was listed in the 80's but don't let that deter you!!! I know each and everyone of you who read this will have a post that should be added to the list!!! JUMP on BOARD!!! It was great fun!!!

Thought I'd add one of my favorite Norman Rockwell pictures. It's from an old calendar, 2007. Click on the picture to enlarge and enjoy Mr. Rockwell's handiwork.

Thanks be to God!!!

Picture Puzzle Day

Click to Mix and Solve
Quebec City
June, 2000

Truly a lovely city!!! What struck me most about the city was the language. French is a lovely language. I am sorry to say I have never mastered any language well, not even English, but hearing the French language spoken was like music. The shop keepers do very nicely helping the tourist. But the most difficult thing for me on the trip was to walk into a book store and find NO books written in English. I had to confront my own "American Pride" that day and turn it from "How dare they not have any books written in English" to "Thanks be to God for the diversity!" It was a real education!!

Again I say,
"Thanks be to God."

Here is the link to JigZone so you can create and submit your puzzle. And Mr. Linky is available below for you convenience so we can enjoy your puzzle.

You are invited to leave a comment, too. Please join in the fun!!! I can hardly wait to put YOUR puzzles together!

Optical Illusions

Optical Illusions have always been an inspiration to me. I am awed by the skill an artist has. They can make something FLAT appear to have texture, form and beauty. Here are some pictures sent to me by a friend, Juliene. You may have seen them before but if you have not I hope you will marvel at them the way I have. There is real art and beauty in these BIG trucks.

Here are 7 pictures of European trucks whose trailers are decorated to look like the sides are missing. The products they are hauling are painted on the outside, side and back, but it looks as if you are looking at the interior of the trailer.

The first one is of a beer bottle and looks so real. It looks as if the bottle is coming out the side of the bottle

Here is a canvas tote bag.

The Pepsi cases look as if they are stacked on the ceiling

Here is another truck with the windshield faceing the back, a drived painted in the drivers seat looking back over his shoulder to appear as if he is diving backwards. (How this one is just palin scary, even when the German reads, "On the wrong way?"

Here is an aquarium with fish in it.

This one is of a bookshelf with books lined up in it and a post-it-note with an advertisement on it with the advertisement for the book supplier no doubt.

Finally, here is the ad for Pringles Hot and Spicy. The "inside" of the trailer has the appearance of having been through a fire.

This gift was sent to me with this Chinese proverb attached. "When someone shares something of value with you and you benefit from it, you have the moral obligation to share it with others. " Of course, we all have different thoughts on the value of things. I have placed a relatively high value on this gift from Juliene. It was entertaining. It is artful. It means that she was thinking about me, because she knew I would enjoy it. So, each of you that see this, please enjoy. I'm wishing you a grand day, for I place a great deal of value on each and everyone of you!

Thanks be to God!!!
