Talk about lots of stuff

Coming up soon is my parents' wedding anniversary. I quilled for them a melting Dali clock. They love showing off all my work. You can check out his paining with the melted clocks, The Persistence of Memory here.




I really struggled with this one. So did my husband (we really enjoy this family game). Suddenly he had this idea for Talk on EMI. Of many olden media, the radio is still surviving. Why, what it is about radio? Anonymity? Can't be tracked as easily as we can be via the internet? Useful in the car, at work, in the shower, whenever we can't look but only listen? What do you think?




On Wicked Wednesday ATC, the theme this week is Pink & Black & White. Here is my tangled ATC in a pink frame:



Today, January 26, is also Australia Day. I found this pic that shows the more beautiful side of this country:

  2. But you ARE so brilliant. Love the idea of talk radio. Do you ever listen to old time radio programs from the 40's and 50's? I love those shows, especially the mystery ones. (I seem to permanently live in that era, although I wasn't around in the forties, because I watch old movies almost exclusively on TV). I found this one really hard too. Your pink, black and white tangle is lovely. Happy Australia Day! Great Koala. They always look so cute and cuddly.

    1. Oh, and I love your quilling. So beautiful. Maybe sometime I can do something as lovely (but not yet, as I'm still learning!)

    2. :) Thanks Kia! Of course I love the oldies. We have a station here - Gold FM, that plays only 50's & 60's (and some 40's). I wasn't around in the 50's. You are doing lovely quilling; I am still learning also.

I'm sure they will show it off to everyone! Rightfully so!!! Wishing them many more healthy, happy years!!! Every year we get with our parents at this point of their lives, is a true gift!!!

    Superb job with your Inchie!! I usually don't look at anybodies until I do mine, But I saw your quilled project and it led me to your inchie too!! And that, my friend, is perfect, for 'talk'!!!
    Have a beautiful week and thank you always, for making me smile!!! You would be an awesome friend to have nearby!! Until then, blessings!! :0) Annette

    1. Awww, thanks Annette! I think the only person unhappy with the result is me 'cause I don't think it looks like one of the Dali clocks. Oh well, everyone else likes it, so that's ok. Oh, don't speak too soon - you cannot imagine how horrible I can be..... on a regular basis :) Have a good one yourself and til soon.

  10. Magnificent work. I love the quilled clock, especially the numbers. The microphone is excellent. I am going to have to check out Wicked Wednesday ATC. The koala bear poster is hilarious (I love koala bears).
