Shadow Shot Sunday #11

Aaarrgh! It’s still cold. I’m still freezin’ my butt off. And there is still almost another month left of winter. Ugh! I’ll refrain from moaning any further about it. Or admitting to how many beanies I’m now wearing. Thinking warm, thinking warm, thinking warm…thinking Shadow Gallery! Yay! The collage this week was created using one photo from each of the Shadow Shot Sunday participants from last Sunday. If you’d like to participate, shoot a shadow, post it on your blog on Sunday (or near enough to Sunday), add your link to Mr Linky & visit other players. Have fun!

Here's my Shadow Shot Sunday #11


An award...

Many thanks to Ali from Charlie & Grace blog & Jellygnite etsy shop for choosing to pass this Arte Y Pico award along to me. One of the reasons Ali gave me this award was for my 'funny’(?) poetry. So Ali, I chose to show my appreciation and fondness for all that you do by writing a little poem for you. Hope you like it.

Ali, the super blast of a chick of Jellygnite,
more Kraft-ee than a jar of vintage vegemite,
some paper ephemera & a big ol’ bottle of clag
a wiz on the Singer, she’s got sewin’ in the bag!
Creating adorable, cute and cuddly Little Jellies, oh-so-clever!
Kickin’ the butts of those tellitubbies or tubbytellies, or whatever!
Always on the hunt for thrifty retro treasures while op-shopping,
many can be found on Charlie and Grace while a-blog-hopping,
Sweet and so very talented is this sunny BrisStylette!
With the swanky little Etsy avatar difficult to forget!


Told you Ali not to encourage me…hehe. But hey, this one at least rhymes! I’m passing this award along to all Shadow Shot Sunday participants. Past and present players. I realise that some of you have already received this award, but for those who yet haven’t, you have now. You deserve this award for your inspiring & creative participation in SSS & the fun you bring to it. Thanks heaps!

I did promise last week that I wouldn’t post any more of my poetry. I apologise. It seems Harriet tells fibs. Happy Sunday!

Hey Harriet, this is bubble babble, my blog decided it would take over and not let me on any more so I fought back and made another one. I'm not sure what happened. Anyway... love your poem, it made me smile! And I needed that after the battle. ;)

Your shadow shot, it's soooo pretty. Is that the outside of your home? Or maybe a curtain? And great job on the collage, I swear it looks like it's getting bigger by the week! :D

Sandra Ree said...

Oh and congratulations on your award! See, I'm not in my right mind, well, I am really because I'm left-handed...I think you know what I mean! lol

M.Kate said...

Marie Louise said...

what a great poem!! hee hee - love it Tracey! I'm still giggling from it (and I don't mind Harriet telling little fibs!)
Love your corrugated iron pic - it has a very (new) Australian aesthetic - no rust, shiny colourbond, but still corrugated iron ....
And another great collage for this week!
Happy Sunday

Beautifully patterned shadow shot. Love it.

I'm sending you some of our hot and humid hot weather, over your way. Please send me your cool weather. I prefer that. ;-) I can't wait for Fall weather.

LOL! Love your poetry. Keep it up! Congrats on your latest award and thanks for sharing the love with us.

Hey Harriet said...

Victoria -

A poem written for me! Woohoo! Thanks heaps! I love it! We should join forces & do the world poetry reading circuit...hehe...dust off your beret ;D

Elizabeth said...

Your shot was poetic rather haiku and Japanese?-if you get what I mean?
I have posted some Morocco ones taken by Claudia and will find something for NY.
Sorry you are cold!

Rosebud Collection said...

This is what I love about Sunday's!

Sew Bettie said...

Great shadow shot. Love the poem too!

Karen from A`Musements said...

Hey Tracy!!! Maybe you should be a pirate, then all that arrrgh-ing (about the cold weather) would just fit in nicely! I love the Shadow Shots collection... Wondering WHY Miss Sophie's picture isn't up high in the column so we can always see her little sweet face greeting us? Please tell her to talk to her human about that, will you? ;-)
xoxo
