"T Stands For Teddy Reading Vogue" - Photograph

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for this week's T Stands For challenge found here.

This is my summation of the past week:

Teddy said if you look closely, you'll see a coffee cup and pot on the table in this magazine photograph. Teddy said that counts as our ticket into the T gathering this week.

I don't have much to say since last week. I took some photographs, but that's about it.

Over the weekend, we watched A Shriek in the Night (1933) and Sorry, Wrong Number (1948).

No Sightseeing / Abandoned Factory Buildings - Photograph

This is 1 of 2 posts of photographs that I took recently of abandoned factory buildings on N Main St in Redding, CT. The Norwalk River runs past the side of the "triangle" building. Train cars used to offload their contents at this building. Unfortunately vandals have broken windows and left trash in this area, which is probably why there is a "No Trespassing No Sightseeing" sign at the gate that leads into the expansive property.

The first photograph is my entry for the following:

"T Stands For Teddy With Garden Issue Magazine" - Photograph

I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for this week's T Stands For challenge found here.

This is my summation of the past week:

Teddy said if you look closely, you'll see glasses and a bottle on the table in this magazine photograph. Teddy said that counts as our ticket into the T gathering this week.

I continue to struggle with artist's block, so I didn't create much artwork this week.

The temperatures finally returned to normal highs and lows for this time of year, so the weather was more pleasant, and most of the snow has finally melted. (It's unusual for coastal Connecticut to have snow on the ground in mid March.)

Sunday we had corned beef, cabbage, carrots, and potatoes to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day.

Over the weekend, we watched The Black Raven (1943), The Blue Dahlia (1946), Double Indemnity (DVD), and The Return Of The Whistler (1948). As an FYI, I have a list of free online movies toward the bottom left side of my blog.

"T Stands For Teddy's Saint Patrick's Day Wish For Everyone" - Photograph

 © All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for this week's T Stands For challenge found here.

This is my summation of the past week:

Teddy wanted to wish the T gang a Happy Saint Patrick's Day, by showing everyone this card. Teddy said the green tea cup with shamrocks in it counts as our ticket into the gathering this week.

Once again, I found Teddy looking through a magazine that came in the mail addressed to me. Teddy asked me how come we don't have a yard and gardens that look like this. I told him I don't know how I got on the mailing list for this magazine, because only rich people can afford the lawns, gardens, and homes shown in it.

This past week I went to the Bellarmine Museum of Art at Fairfield University in Fairfield, CT. The small museum is located in the basement of Bellarmine Hall. I've gone to this museum a few times in the past, but this was the first time that I noticed how stunning the architecture of the building itself was. I need to visit here again when everything turns green, to get more photographs.




I mailed a postcard to Lisca and it should get to her in a week (according to the US Post Office). (Note: I mailed the postcard Thursday early afternoon, 3/7, and Lisca emailed me to tell me it arrived Monday morning, 3/11.) I still have artist's block so I haven't created much artwork this week.

After last Monday's snow, the temperatures here turned unseasonably cold with wind chills on top of that, so it's been quite unpleasant. Sunday we got a rain storm that began as snow and sleet.

We watched IT! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958) (part 1 and part 2), which the plot of Alien (1979) borrowed heavily from.

I took this photograph of the stag statue that is encased in glass in Bellarmine Hall at Fairfield University in Fairfield, CT this past week.

This photo is my entry for the following:

The Weekend in Black and White

This is actually a color photograph. Because the sun was shining in through the windows, it gave everything a black and white silhouette effect.

I will post more photographs that I took here later this weekend or next week.

"Mail Art (For Lisca)" - Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
(Click on image to enlarge)

I made a mail art piece for the backside of a postcard. Lisca receives postcards from people all over the world, so I asked her if I could send her one of mine, and she said yes. I mailed the postcard today (3/7/2019), so it will be interesting to see how many days it takes for her to receive it. The US post office told me it would take about a week. (The front side of the postcard is this.)

I created this using GIMP 2.10.8.

The vintage images are from an Internet search. (See the side of my blog for links.)
