Tuesday, March 27, 2012      "HUMPTY DUMPTY" by  Kimber Fiebiger   "Love all; trust a few; do wrong to none." ~ Unknown Author  And the nursery rhyme goes like this............  'Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall:  Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.  All the King's horses and all the King's men  Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again.'  Well, Kimber Fiebiger of Minneapolis, Minnesota made this delightful sculpture because she, "Just loves to put a smile on people's faces." Looks like Humpty Dumpty has been put back together again and is back on his throne, which I hope brings a smile to your face. The artist's official website is here: http://www.joanofart.com/?page_id=30.   In the words of a great gospel song by Donnie McClurkin, "We fall down, but we get up!"   Actually, Oprah Winfrey may have said it best: "If you should happen to fall, turn your wounds into wisdom."  Finally, this is the last of the public art series in Mesa, AZ. Thank you for your appreciation and patience, although there are a few more public art pieces which can be viewed here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/20517416_FzGW22#!i=1656884744&k=fw75TPW  Have a "well put together" and terrific Tuesday, my friends.  ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 12/28/2011)
Tuesday, December 27, 2011     "BROKEN, BUT BEAUTIFUL"  "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one." ~ C.S. Lewis  No flash and SOOC, other than the border.......final Christmas theme post of the year:)  It was Christmas in November when I received this!    My best friend (of 23 years) and I exchanged Christmas gifts when she (and her family) were here during the Thanksgiving holidays. I think she's started a tradition of giving me a Christmas tree ornament each year. Unfortunately, when I pulled this one out of the bag, it was broken (most likely during shipping), although you probably cannot tell in this photo. It's an angel inside the ornament that's suppose to sit atop the base and light up once the light switch is turned on. Actually, it's amazing how much I like the fact that the angel appears to be sitting at the base of the ornament holding a picture. Nevertheless, it's beautiful and I love and appreciate it. The frame was applied from PicNik.   View the 2010 ornament here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/Project365/Daily-Dose-of-One-A-Day-2011/15049328_sF4n2j#1192553561_ebJxx-A-LB  The glass bowl in the background is the one in the Thursday, December 22, 2011 post, which can be viewed here: http://godschild.smugmug.com/Project365/Daily-Dose-of-One-A-Day-2011/15049328_sF4n2j#1595885649_SVSM4TJ-A-LB  I wholeheartedly appreciate your comments on my photos and I enjoy perusing your outstanding photos.   Five days until a new year......2012.   Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!!!  ***#6 photo of the day***  (received ornament 11/25/2011; photo taken 12/1/2011)
Tuesday, September 6, 2011             "TIERFUL"  "Colors are the smiles of nature" ~ Leigh Hunt  Worthy of a return visit............"The Field of Zinnias"  Remember the zinnias in yesterday's POTD? Well, these were captured in the same field. I love how these zinnias appear to be in tiers, overlapping, and/or cascading. I also love the mixture of colors. The frames were applied from PicNik.  Always popular with gardeners for their lush and lovely appearance, zinnias are traditional symbols of lasting love and good memories. Zinnias are longtime garden favorites for colorful, round flowers. I was told that these flexible hot-weather plants don’t gain from being planted early and stand still until weather warms up.   You can view the entire gallery here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/16179827_QjTWRB#1460261892_3j4Pnpw  Have a terrific Tuesday, everyone!  ***#1 photo of the day*** and all-time as of 9/7/2011  (photo taken on 7/29/2011)
Wednesday, July 27, 2011       "GLOWS OF GRATITUDE"    "People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within." ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross     Remember yesterday's pic? Well, these are views of the solid colored glass windows on each of the three entry doors to the chapel (from the inside). I pp'd this one; it's my 31st remix.    My nephew attends this SEC university and is pursuing a degree in kinesiology; he's doing quite well, and loves it! It is one of the top SEC universities in Mississippi and the prettiest SEC university campus I've toured.  Also, the campus spirit is pleasant, warm, friendly, and accepting of various nationalities and ethnicities. The official website is here: http://www.msstate.edu. and the complete gallery of campus photos are in the "Colleges/Universities" album.     Thanks so much for your views and comments on my "Angel" post yesterday. I thoroughly enjoy perusing and commenting on your fabulous pics, also.     It's hump day; have a great one!!

Friday, March 23, 2012  "FLOWERING STILETTO" by Mary Consie of Mesa, AZ  "If loving shoes is wrong, I don't want to be right." ~ Godschild (Me)  This was also among my favorite sculptures that reminded me of all the ladies who love shoes as much as I do (including but not limited to): my mother, my two sisters, my aunts, my best friend, a co-worker Shelia, SmugMug ladies Linda, Paula, Janet, Maryann, Judy, Nelli, and all the other shoe-a-holics in the world.  "Flowering Stiletto," by Mary Consie of Mesa, AZ, was donated in memory of Jane Binkley (1940-2007) by her family. It was dedicated to the city of Mesa, AZ in July, 2008. Flowering Stiletto depicts a 6 foot long stiletto with a flower growing out of it. The sculpture is made of steel.  Consie has said that due to having flat feet, she can't wear small shoes and creates large versions instead. Originally the sculpture was purchased by a resident of Tempe, AZ. The purchaser then donated it to the city of Mesa and dedicated it to his late wife, Jane Binkley, who had a large (in number, not in size) shoe collection.  TGIF!! Have a funtagious, footloose, francy-free, and high-steppin' weekend.  Located on the NE corner of Main St. and Robson Rd.

Monday, April 16, 2012         "FOUNTAIN"    “A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.” ~ Unknown Author    I appreciate your comments on yesterday's one pound (6,120 calories) "Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar," but after the milk chocolate bar and the five-pound gummy bear, no sweet treats for today. Instead, here's some much needed water.    Also, my hubby spotted this beautiful fountain and suggested that I photograph it. SOOC, this was taken at an office complex located on Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, Arizona.  Unfortunately, I did not get its name.     By the way, Phillip, this is a result of long exposure; I held my breath and the shutter button down for a few seconds while counting and then released it:). I've owned a tripod for approximately two years, but it remains packaged to this day and I have never opened or used it.    Have a marvelous Monday and a great start to the week.    ***#3 photo of the day and all-time***    (photo taken 12/30/2011)
Monday, May 28, 2012  (Memorial Day)    "AMERICAN FLAG"  (Legos)     "The work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dreams shall never die.” ~ Senator Edward Kennedy (1932-2009)    "American Flag," by Nathan Sawaya, is meant to remind us of the wartime turbulence of the '60s. In America, the sixties were a complex time of social change and uncertainty with issues like the unpopular Vietnam War, the struggle for civil rights, and the asssassination of several American leaders. Nathan Sawaya uses this image of a torn flag to represent a tattered but strong country that still endures." ~ Reprinted text from information card on wall    As I've stated several times in my commentaries that accompany my Memorial Day post, I know firsthand the sacrifices of the military men and women as well as the support of the families who love them. My father is an Army veteran. Additionally, I have a nephew in the Marines and a first cousin in the Air Force. Both of the latter young men have even served in Iraq!!!    Regarding our military troops, I think Senator John Kerry said it best: “We owe our troops the opportunity to serve in the best-planned, best-equipped, and best-led military force in the world, and we owe them the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they and their families will be taken care of if they sacrifice life, limb or the ability to sleep without war's nightmares. We owe them not just thanks and best wishes, but action, and action in our nation's capital.”      SPEAKING OF SPORTS: The San Antonio Spurs won Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals last night in San Antonio, TX against the Oklahoma City Thunder.  The score was 101 - 98. I am pulling for OKC in this series. Game 2 is tomorrow night in San Antonio, TX. Speaking of the Eastern Conference Finals, Miami Heat will hsot Boston Celtics tonight in game 1 of the finals. The family and I are pulling for Boston.    Have a safe Memorial Day!

Sunday, February 26, 2012      "RED BARON SQUADRON"    "When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it." ~ Henry Ford     SOOC, polished to perfection, and built in 1943 comes this 69 year old Stearman E75, N802RB of the Red Baron Pizza aerobatic team. It carried Boeing construction number 75-6451. The Red Baron Squadron was established in 1979 as a promotion for Red Baron Pizza. The squadron flew vintage Stearman biplanes and was the oldest civilian air team in the United States, attending airshows throughout the country and flying formation aerobatics. Their base of operations and air museum was at the Southwest Minnesota Regional Airport in Marshall, Minnesota. In 2007, after 28 years of flying, the company announced the retirement of the squadron.

Sunday, April 22, 2012    "THE PHOENIX"     "Hold fast to your dreams, for without them life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly." ~ Langston Hughes     SOOC........a different twist, but nevertheless, here's my contribution to fellow SmugMugger L. Perry Fuqua's "Earth Day" Challenge.     Of course, the colors were the initial attraction to this work of art.  This photo was taken as we were walking through the airport to await the boarding of our flight for home from Phoenix, AZ to Houston, TX. Unfortunately, I didn't get the artist name.    DISCLAIMER: The following views are not my personal views, opinions, or beliefs. The texts are included as background, informational purposes only. A card was given to me by a young man who was standing in the store after I snapped this picture. The following texts were written on it. Coincidentally, when I uploaded the Arizona photos and started putting the dates on them, this one just so happened to fall on today. With that said........    "The Phoenix" is associated with triumph over adversity, and that which rises out of ashes. It is symbolic of hope, purity, faith, eternity, and light. The Phoenix not only represents immortality but also an individual who stands apart from the rest, a person of rare qualities."    Additionally, "Only one Phoenix exists at a time. When the mystical bird felt its death was near, it would rebuild a nest of aromatic twigs in which it burned from the heat of its own body. The Phoenix would be consumed by the flames and then would resurrect from the ashes. The Phoenix's flight has been said to represent the capacity to leave the world and its problems behind, flying toward the sun in clear pure skies." ~ Reprinted texts from the card    Thanks for your comments on the collectible "Salt and Pepper Shakers" that landed in the #1 spot yesterday.    Have a beautiful and blessed Sunday.    Sky Harbor International Airport  Phoenix, AZ    ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***    (photo taken 12/31/2011)
Saturday, April 21, 2012    "SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS"    “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi    A pair of distressed, rustic, collectible, vintage, Western tin cowboy salt and pepper shakers on the kitchen island at "my happy place."    There are not enough days in the weekend, but have a great one, my friends.    ***#1 photo of the day and all-time***    (photo taken 12/31/2011)
Saturday, July 2, 2011                    "1955 FORD FAIRLANE TOWN SEDAN"  “Vision without execution is just hallucination.” ~ Henry Ford  Here's my very 1st HDR pp image........best viewed in XLarge!!   A special thanks to Lgood's husband Bill (owner of a Ford Fairlane) who stated that this is "a 1955 (maybe a '66) but nearly certain it is a '55."  This multi-colored Ford Fairlane Town Sedan was my favorite in the show. I love the bright colors that changed depending upon the angle from which it was viewed. If you look real close, you will see reflections galore in this one, most notably a red Chevy pickup that was parked beside it.    According to Wikipedia, "The Ford Fairlane was an automobile model sold between 1955 and 1970 by the Ford Motor Company in North America. The name was taken from Henry Ford's estate, Fair Lane, near Dearborn, Michigan. Over time, the name referred to a number of different cars in different classes; the Fairlane was initially a full-size car but became a mid-size car from the 1962 model year. The mid-sized model spawned the Australian-built Fairlane in 1967, although it was considered a large car there." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Fairlane_Americas)   Check out the original here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/17330226_SSNF6P#1361726886_85RFQx2.  Your comments regarding my first "major" pp work on yesterday's T-Bird were both inspiring and appreciated. By the way, my hubby and our two sons are the "vintage vehicle/car buffs."   ***#4 photo of the day and all-time***  (photo taken 6/11/2011)
Sunday, December 30, 2012    "LIGHTS AND REFLECTIONS"    "How much you climb up the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain. And so it is with life, which, for many of us becomes one big gigantic test followed by one big gigantic lesson. In the end, it all comes down to one word.....grace. It's how you accept winning and losing, good luck and bad luck, the darkness and the light." ~ Philosophy    SOOC, other than the frames, which were created with Picnik.......unfortunately, the picnik is over. As announced earlier, Picnik closed on April 19, 2012.

Monday, May 16, 2011  "442"  (pp version)  "It allows you to say things that sound very dramatic and get away with it. If you had characters in modern fiction say the same things as they're driving down the street in an Oldsmobile, they'd sound ludicrous." ~ Terry Goodkind  Here's another Lgood inspired automobile capture. This cobalt blue baby was one of my hubby's favorites in the show. Unfortunately, there was not an information card, but while we were at the car show, my hubby (who loves antique cars) informed me that this is a "442 Cutlass Olds." He also stated that the chrome on the rear bumper, in all likelihood, has been redone. You can see a glimpse of my black / white animal print jacket and red cape in the bumper. There was a chilly breeze and the temps had dropped to mid 50s. Yes, I did some pp with this one, but it is uncropped.   The original can be viewed here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/16609546_tdrqK#1274849706_xFHRmdP  Also, I did some research and according to Wikipedia, "The Oldsmobile 442 (pronounced four-four-two) was a muscle car produced by the Oldsmobile division of General Motors. It was introduced as an option package for F-85 and Cutlass models sold in the United States beginning with the 1964 model year. It became a model in its own right from 1968 to 1971, then reverted to an option through the mid-1970s. Oldsmobile revived the name in the 1980s on the rear-wheel drive Cutlass Supreme and early 1990s as an option package for the new front-wheel drive Cutlass." (Reprinted text from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_442)  Furthermore, I am overwhelmingly and humbly appreciative of your comments on yesterday's "Antique Chevy." It landed in the #2 spot. Congrats to my friend sharkbayte whose "Clouds" pic was #1. View it here: http://sharkbayte.smugmug.com/Photography/2011-Daily-Photos/15280496_zofpQ#1291649048_zdNjmgz  Enjoy today; a "blue" Monday may not be so bad after all (smile).  ***#1 photo of the day and all time***  Show Your Ride Car Show  Memphis, TN
December 21, 2010  "ROCKIN' AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE"  “He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.”  ~ Roy L. Smith  Today is the first day of winter. We spent last Christmas in Arizona (December 24-31, 2009) at the "home away from home" (aka "My Happy Place") and I photographed this gorgeous tree at one of the resorts while admiring all of its Christmas decor.

"HUMPTY DUMPTY" by Kimber Fiebiger

"Love all; trust a few; do wrong to none." ~ Unknown Author

And the nursery rhyme goes like this............

'Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall:
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the King's horses and all the King's men
Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again.'

Well, Kimber Fiebiger of Minneapolis, Minnesota made this delightful sculpture because she, "Just loves to put a smile on people's faces." Looks like Humpty Dumpty has been put back together again and is back on his throne, which I hope brings a smile to your face. The artist's official website is here: http://www.joanofart.com/?page_id=30.

In the words of a great gospel song by Donnie McClurkin, "We fall down, but we get up!"

Actually, Oprah Winfrey may have said it best: "If you should happen to fall, turn your wounds into wisdom."

Finally, this is the last of the public art series in Mesa, AZ. Thank you for your appreciation and patience, although there are a few more public art pieces which can be viewed here: http://www.smugmug.com/gallery/20517416_FzGW22#!i=1656884744&k=fw75TPW

Have a "well put together" and terrific Tuesday, my friends.
