  10. I had a reproduction of that painting hanging in my bedroom when I was a little girl - probably explains my attraction to the impressionists!

    nice take on TT

  11. Christine ~ hi...yes, I've seen the wrens! They're in the back of our property in the pine trees. I was back there picking raspberries and could see them...they've filled out with feathers and are looking a bit more grown up. So fun!

  13. Hi! Betsy,
    Thanks, for sharing!...The picture of one of my favorite artist painting(s)...Edgar Degas' Prima Ballerina Taking A Bow.

    All the words that you used to spell out the word stage is all you need to set the stage.

    Thanks, for sharing!

  18. Betsy said,"You know, I don't think I've ever seen this oldie!"

    Hi! Betsy,
    I placed that (The Univited) post in draft, but I just wanted you, to know that I did read your comment...Oh! Yes, I watched this film when TCM aired it...which is very rare!...because some of these classic films are very rarely aired
    on television/cable anymore...I guess they figure you, can purchase them on DVDs...I must admit I watch a lot of current films too!...but, I feel that "some" classic films had more interesting story to tell!... Oops!I'am so sorry for being so long winded!
    Take care!
    DeeDee ;-D
