A Note From Marie

To my fellow bloggers I am sending my first bulletin regarding my situation, health-wise.

I deeply appreciate the good wishes you have sent me and it is touching to know I'm not forgotten. I have had a very illness-free life so it was a surprise when I had a life-threatening medical emergency necessitating surgery followed by two months in hospital and another 4-5 months under the care of a hospital-in-the-home service. I am improving from day to day. I am pleased to report that I have regained strength in walking (now without aids) and I am becoming more independent and almost well enough to cope with living alone.

My daughter saved my life in so many ways. She refused to give up on me and she nagged and bullied (in the nicest possible way)and persuaded me to believe the fight was worth fighting. She lives in the same street only a minute or two away if help is needed.

My problems melt into insignificance with the pandemic now affecting the lives of every person living on the planet. I wish you all a safe journey through the mayhem of life changing rules and the attack on the economy.

A big thank you to all of you for your thoughtfulness and good wishes.

STEAMPUNK MAKEOVER



Hi, it's me Ann, and this week we have STEAMPUNK MAKEOVER as our theme at the Three Muses.

Will you choose a film or TV star, a character from a book or perhaps someone closer to home?

I'm sure you will be bursting with ideas for this one but just in case you need a little help, here is a sample or two to get you started.

Looking forward to seeing what you create.

Enjoy!

Credits for how I transformed Marilyn and Johnny (phwaar) can be found on my blog.

  13. Ann,

    I already posted comments on flickr about both of your great steampunk pieces. They are fantastic. You have inspired me to try my hand at some more steampunking of friends and family.
    Here's one I did so far; it's on my blog.
