CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – RAINBOW COLORS

Right off the bat I am apologizing for the quality of this photo.  But there’s a reason, and it’s not lack of talent – not this time, anyway.

I spotted this colorful pony in a shop in Atlantic City.  He (She?) is so me.  For as long as I can remember I have loved horses and, being a child of the 60’s, I spent my teen years flashing peace signs at everyone and anyone.

So when I saw this horse splashed with rainbow colors and a pretty pink peace sign, I had to have a picture of it.  Problem was I was approached by a sales person, asking me not to take pix of anything in the store. 

I had to do a skulky, stealthy, sneaky move, which accounts for the poor picture quality. 😦   Sorry, I know sneaky is wrong, but sometimes you just have to be a non-conformist and break the rules.

PEACE

Please make your way over to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge and take a look at more rainbow colors.  You won’t be sorry.  No Horsin’ around!

Cee, thanks for hosting and to all, thanks for visiting… 🙂

TRAVEL THEME – GAUDY

Currently, I am sans computer. ANNOYING! But there’s a good reason.

Anyway, this leaves me with no photos except what’s on my iPhone and iPad, so this will be a bit of a challenge for me for a while. But hey! That’s what I’m working on – challenges mostly – so I’m holding true to my mission.

Ailsa has thrown out the “gaudy” gauntlet so here’s my find.

Home Goods, if you know the place, has a plethora of fun furniture, a myriad of mirrors, and some really loud, flashy, showy, gaudy lamps.

Feast your eyes an this dazzler!

Gaudy, but in a funky kind of nice way, wouldn’t ya say.

For a good look at some gaudy, click on the lamp and it will take you to Ailsa’s blog @ Where’s my backpack.

(I’m having issues figuring out how to link on my iPad. In case I’m failing miserably, I wouldn’t want you to miss a trip to Ailsa’s blog, so here’s the URL: http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/02/08/travel-theme-gaudy/ )

TRAVEL THEME – WALLS

In a little cafe, just the other side of the  highway…

It wasn’t really a cafe, it was a diner. But that’s not how the song goes.

Then again, in the song, it was “the other side of the border”, but there’s no border here. Just highway.

Have I lost you, yet?  I’m confusing myself.  Nevertheless, the walls of this cafe/diner on the other side of the border/highway are decorated with a potpourri of items, that to me, seem to have no rhyme or reason. Yet I love to eat there, always looking for what’s new in wall ornaments.  As you enter the building you see a couple of paintings.  Then you see a myriad of trinkets, signs, bottles, and what-all-else hanging everywhere.  It’s hard to eat without spinning your head, Linda Blair style – well almost Linda Blair style. (are you to young for that reference?)

The wall paintings are pretty cool, but the artist made at least one error in each picture.  Can you guess what they are?

Need another brick in your wall?  Stop by Ailsa‘s @ wheresmybackpack and take a peek by clicking on the link.

Thanks to Ailsa for hosting another interesting challenge.  And thanks to y’all for browsing, liking, viewing, and/or commenting.  I do appreciate your visit.
