I ran into Susan Tuttle's new book at Borders the other day. It is a "must see".  There is some amazing work in there and everything about it is top quality. 

You can purchase it here. You also have an incredible opportunity. Susan is giving away a copy, so go to her beautiful blog and check out her contest. Good Luck!!! I know ,I signed up to win one.

Once again LK Ludwig, from Gryphons Feather and The Poetic Eye has declared today a "sharing day".  Today is a day of music and song. What a task to try and come up with just one. I love so many different types of music.

A  few months ago my friend Maddie at Persisting Stars had a link to a You Tube video by Katie Melua, called Nine Million Bicycles. I fell in love with her music.

While checking out that song, I found the one below, that made me think of my husband, who loves to sail. I am dedicating it to him :-)......enjoy!

"The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain."- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I'm spending a nice quiet Sunday afternoon listening to the rain come down and playing with some photos I took in Rome of graffiti, by adding paint and various acrylic mediums.

The word graffiti comes from the word graffiare in Italian which means to scratch or scribble. Graffiti originated in ancient Italy as inscriptions and drawings on sculpture and walls. It was even found in Pompeii.

How are you spending your day?
