That's My World Tuesday - City Art part I

I totally LOVE this Meme! I did not know it was going to grow on me when I started participating, but it has and I look forward to it every week! I hope you enjoy what I share with you :)
My beautiful city is a resort town and there are many art galleries all over the place. Around the city there is also some great art - mainly sculptures, which are permanently displayed along the boardwalk (Malecon) for locals and visitors to enjoy.
Some are abstract art like these "Jelly fish"
Others are traditional like the cook's patron Saint
and there is also modern art - like these sails - with grafitti on it!

Next week I will share some more, I hope you come back and visit ~

Think Monday - Think ATC

I did not realize it is the 40th anniversary of landing on the moon until I went over to http://tmta.wordpress.com/ - the theme for this week is MOON!
And being the hopeless romantic that I am, here is MY view of the Moon:
Sorry about the poor quality photo, I just realized I am having issues with my camera, I hope you can still see the details of my ATC.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fantastic week ~

Friday 5 for July 17: Scattergories

I just found this Meme and it sounds like a fun one to do; this week’s 5 is inspired by the party game Scattergories, in which players have to come up with items, all beginning with the same letter, in several categories.

Here I go!

What random letter was generated by the online random-letter generator? (this doesn’t really count as one of your five questions) V
With what famous person, whose name begins with the letter in question #1, would you most like to be stuck on a desert island?
QUEEN VICTORIA
What food item, whose name begins with the letter in question #1, can always be found in your pantry? VANILLA EXTRACT
What song, whose title begins with the letter in question #1, always makes you feel good? VA TI ASPETTERO (Andrea Bocelli)

What is your least-favorite film whose title begins with the letter in question #1? VANILLA SKY
What unusual animal, whose name begins with the letter in question #1, would be a fun pet?
VIXEN (Better than viper! LOL)

My World Tuesday - XL

This is one of my favorite Memes because it allows me to share photos of my city! This week I will be sharing with you some beach photos.

I live very close to the water, if I go out the door and walk seven blocks down my street I will be at the beach in less than 10 minutes.

All these photos are of the Los Muertos beach, the oldest and at one time - years ago - most popular beach.

I hope you enjoyed the photos and if you wish to visit other blogs visit: http://showyourworld.blogspot.com/2009/07/my-world-tuesday-issue-xl.html

See you next week ~

'Three Or More - Tuesday'

This is my first time participating in the Three or More - Tuesday Meme hosted by http://gypsycorner.blogspot.com/ and here is my entry.
I collect hearts - among other things :) - and the ones I am showing here are some of my favorite ones. The red one is a typical Mexican tin heart and I love it because it has a cross - I also collect crosses! The vintage one I've had for many years, I think is sweet and the clear one is a glass paper weight my favorite cousin gave to me.
I can't wait to visit the other participating blogs and I will try to post again next week.
Thank you for stopping by ~

Sour

4. Of these flavor types: sweet, salty, bitter or sour, which do you have the most of in your home right now?

"What's My Question Wednesday"

The question for today is ..."if it were possible,what advice would you give your eighteen year old self "

I'd tell myself to SAVE more money, travel alone to farther away places, drop the guilt (Catholic upbringing!) and trust my sixth sense.

Aside from that I am happy to say I have no regrets!!!

My first post.

This is - what I hope - the first of many posts on this new blog. I have decided to separate the Memes and Challenges from my crafting/daily life blog as some of my regular visitors might think they are totally unrelated to the original theme of my other blog, soooo here I am.
I totally love comments so please feel free to write a little something, even if it's quick hello.
Thank you for stopping by, come back often!
