Flower Seller

The Flower Seller sits with her hands in her lap,

When she's not crying Roses, she's taking a nap;

Her bonnet is queer, and she calls you My Dear,

And sells you the lovliest things of the year.

Good Morning! Just wanted to pop in and post my latest collage "Flower Seller" I would love to be in that collage...walking in that lovely little neighborhood....coming across the Flower Seller Lady. I bet she would have some stories to tell!

Looks like a good day to work in the yard! The weather sayssss it is going to go below freezing Mon. & Tues night here!!!! I have even heard there is a chance of snow showers! Of course you all know this concerns me. Keep your fingers crossed for meeee!

I just got back from Flickr where I was posting the collage and something really strange happened to me. I am bringing it up because I want to know if anything like this happened to any of you. I was posting the collage to my groups...clicking them on down the line...and all of a sudden.....some horrid words popped up as the title to a group in was in! I can't repeat them here and was totally appalled! Let's just say, it was pretty racial. I was pretty ticked off too! So someone sabotaged the group! I was so freaked out I ran and deleted myself out of the group...I don't even know which group it was! All the pictures submitted by everyone looked normal, and I had only submitted 3 pictures to the group....I think it might be a newer one I joined. It made me even madder thinking that people who I might have wanted to become contacts with or anyone looking at my profile would see that I was a member of THAT group!! Soooo...if anyone reading this saw that....they will now know why!!

I just wanna thank you all for coming by and hanging out with me! I appreciate you all every day and hope you know how special you all are to me!

Gotta get moving around here....hope you all have a beautiful day!

Your collage is absolutely stunning. Like you, I feel I could just step into it and soak up all the wonderful images there.
Yahoo Groups have a clickon "report this" button and I imagine Flickr has something similar. I play a game with a phantom group former on Yahoo who, most weekends, sends an invitation to join his/her group which is really an invitation to subscribe to a porn website. Of course, the username changes each week but the message is the same. I report it and it disappears quickly into the ether as Yahoo is very prompt in dealing with this stuff. It gives me a good feeling to see the porn peddler being dealt with, even though he/she will be back next week.

Hi Shelly. I haven't had your scary experience. Isn't it sad there are that sort of people out there in cyberspace, using it to spread hate and filth? But enough of that! This piece if absolutely gorgeous. I really enjoy your work!

Gabrielle Fabian said...

Hi Shelly!! Your collage is wonderful, I especially love the corners (why do I zero in on these crazy things?? I DON'T KNOW!!!). Sorry to hear of your Flickr experience - I haven't had anything like that personally but am on the watch for it, especially now :( Unfortunately there are a certain percentage of whack jobs out there...
Have a wonderful day!

I love this one so much and I love the poem too. Applause.

Just report your experience to Flickr and they should do something about it. There's always some 'anorak' somewhere who enjoys doing this kind of abuse.

Your blog is a complete joy. Real eye candy. Your artwork is pretty, fun and inspiring. I'm so glad I found your blog. I'm now following it.

Oh, Shelly! I love fairy tales, and this looks like it should be included in a vintage children's storybook! It's SO amazingly beautiful! Bravo!!! (Standing "O"!!!!)

SO sorry to hear about your FLICKR incident! Nothing like that has happened to me in FLICKR; however, I have had bad "google" experiences. When these unpleasant surprises happen, it's very disturbing and upsetting.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Terri xoxo
