Weekend Photos, Musical Monday & other ramblings

Is it Musical Monday already?Where did the weekend go? 

 Watched Repo Men last night. It was a bit meh but had this great tune from Unkle on the soundtrack. I haven't listened to them in ages so popped over to their site. Some great stuff on the Standalone player - worth opening a tab & running in the background. (That's what I'm doing right now)

Denise over at RunDMT resurrected Music Monday's last week. If you get a chance pop over later, add your own tunes & check out what others are playing today. I love MM! It can be a great way to find new faves or enjoy some classics.

So what did you do this weekend? It was party time around here.  We started Friday night with the Museq art opening at the Tampa Artist Emporium. Fun show! Lots of color plus a variety of styles and mediums. Little Dude played official photographer. (Oops - I just realized we forgot to shoot my 2 pieces.Well, you can see them on the previous post if you are curious.)

 R.J. Runas  ( & assistant) work on a clay dog sculpture.

Check out this Leonardo bust by the same artist. Fantastic texture!

Some great guitar kept the party moving. Visit TimMullally.com for a listen.

A grand time was had by all! We made some new friends and ran into many old ones. The rest of the weekend was spent at various birthday celebrations & relaxing.

"I have been wanting to" is the theme for the new MixedMediaMonday. I love this prompt! I've been taking too long to start a few projects that are outside my comfort zone. I'm going to see about working on this later today. Click the banner to add your newest creation or see how others are pushing their personal envelopes.

I'll let you in on a not-so-secret. I am a big chicken. I can't tell you how many times I hear of an opportunity & fail to follow through until it is too late.  So, taking the MMM challenge to heart. I'm getting my paperwork & photos together for assorted artsy opportunities. Will anything come of it? Probably not....but what the heck.....nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?

On that note, I best get myself moving today. Wishing you all a creative and fun filled week!

By the way, I'm hosting 2 random drawings right now. Click links for more info:


  1. Those bright yellow walls look so inspiring!! And I like the sculptures. Can't believe your energy, keeping up with all these... memes, is that the word? Like Musical Monday? I admire people who do but to me it feels a bit like pressure!

  2. Very cool song! So you live in/near Tampa? If so, we're neighbors! That emporium looks fabulous. I'll have to check it out sometime. My oldest daughter loves art.

    Thanks for the MM link up and shout out! Sorry I didn't make it over here last week.

  3. I've never heard of Unkle before. I enjoyed the tune and the video my friend. I enjoyed the photos are excellent and that Emporium sounds like a wonderful place. Thanks for sharing. Have a great week :)

  4. FUN! I wish I had known about it! Did I know you were a fellow Tampanian??

  5. I like this song, it got my blood pumping!

    It looks like you had a great week.

    Happy MM.


  6. I let deadlines come and go too!! Ha! I think and think about a project and then it is too late! Sigh!! I have to start jumping in on these things as soon as I hear of them.
    Luck to you dear one
