Art & stuff by Susie Jefferson



My theme this week is TIME. I can't believe it's Saturday again. The weeks seem to pass faster and faster - does time speed up as you get older?

I remember at school, the time seemed endless until the holidays... and these seemed to last forever until the last week, which sped by so fast I could hardly draw breath!

One minute I'm here... then turn around and I'm here...

Hardly time to turn around and draw breath, then I'm here...

Spin around again, more time passes...dances, parties...

And then I found myself here...except he wasn't the perfect man. So I divorced him...

Then I met and married the Perfect Man... we're still married...

...who gives me time for myself... loves seeing what I create... doesn't complain too much about the mess, and is happy to do more than his share cooking...

...never complains about the amount I spend on books and magazines...or the time spent online (although he does moan a little bit) which is where I found this fabulous quirky old house... the perfect place to be...if we ever win the lottery...

Finally, please visit Tina at Beansie Babbles. I just finished her blog makeover, which is Pinkness Personified, and I'm sure she'll be tickled to death to hear what you think!

    Hey Susie,

    I've sent many requests to *Father Time* to slow down!!! I do think that time is going faster with each year that I grow older. My body has slowed down but my mind is wide open. haha

    I love your post..I can so relate to it...I now have an angel for a husband and he like yours loves to watch me create...he even knows how to wash clothes [all by himself] who knew these men existed!!?? Took me 30 years to find him. :0)

    Stephanie ♥

  13. Hi Susie, Reading your post reminds me how we're all more alike than different. I too have too many magazines, not enough cleaning, too much time online, etc.
    Hope you're having a great PS! Suzie

  14. You and I sound like we married the same men lol
    Randy is a doll also. After all he let me go on a 3 week adventure!
    Thanks for coming by Susie. Now I know who the great artist is that makes all those banners so pretty.
    Happy PS
    Love Claudie

  15. Happy Pink Saturday! I so agree time seems to go so fast. I think we're being paid back for wishing away time when we were younger!

  16. Hi Susie! I am so tickled with how pretty my blog looks now!!.. And I just read your review on photo editing too, so I will definitely look more into those! I am happy to say, though it wasn't easy, I INSISTED that someone, at the help/support department for my particular camera, walk through every setting with me so that I could possibly figure out if it was my fault for taking terrible pictures, or if the camera was defective, or if the settings were just wrong. Well, having done that, so far, the camera is taking much better pictures now!! I still wouldn't buy this particular brand name again, but the pictures are looking better than they were, and I'm glad for that much! Thanks for sending your readers my way today. It was nice to meet them, and I'm so glad to hear people are liking what they see! I was wishing I could have done a PS post, but I didn't sign up in time.. Next week, hopefully! Thank you Susie!! ((hugs)) ~tina

  17. Happy Pink Saturday. What cute pictures. Times passes more quickly as I get older. Good husbands are hard to find, we are both lucky :)

    Happy Pink Saturday Susie Sweetie...
    Oh goodness I absolutely love this post. The graphics are just beautiful. I can see why you love this little cottage so much. If I won the lottery I would be looking for something along the same line. It looks so magical.

    Awesome job. Totally awesome. I thank you for sharing with me. Have a beautiful Sunday sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry
