Here at gemmashouse there are many books and many journals.
For awhile now I've been saving images for my creative discovery journals.
So today instead of starting to read a new crop of books like I'd planned....
I did the serendipitious grab of images from my style file and pasted them on the page.

The first image I grabbed....
A copy of an old Sarah Bernhardt photo.
Yep that certainly fits my style and my mood!

Signs and symbols are everywhere.

School starts tomorrow.
I'm excited and feeling
somewhat dramatic like Sarah.
Yes I am!
Moving on to some more images I gleaned from my file:

Some tea stained tags sent to me from Paris
an old clock
words "My body is a work of art"
or piece of work
something like that!
Lots of synchronicity.

Having fun
How about you?


  1. Gee, she looks familiar - I think I've seen that look in the mirror before... :)
    Wishing you a wonderful start back to school! xo

  2. Love that picture. I know you are probably not as happy as I am that school is starting. For me it means MY vacation. Ours start on the 10th. The 2 oldest and I are looking forward to it. Not real sure how the 2 youngest feel about it starting. Will keeps asking me "Ninnie how many days til school starts?".

  3. School starts for you as I start my vacation finally! I hope you have a great year! :)
