Journal Page and Inchie

Here we at Monday again already. Seems like every Monday I have the same title for my post and they do seem to go well together.

At Art Journal Journey I am hosting the Winter Wonderland challenge and I amazed that there are so many entries already and such terrific and varied ideas.

My page today is pure indulgence on my part as it represents a very wonderful winter for me in 1989/1990. Everywhere seemed to be snowy and icy, Vic and me had almost become a couple. He would drive me down country lanes in the snow and always had music on the radio or on tape. We seemed to liked the same music and sang along with whatever was on. One day he seemed a bit eager to drag me out into the cold car and he put a tape in the machine. This page is part of the song that was being played. I hadn't heard it before but it did become our song and still is even after 26 years of marriage.(to each other)lol

If you would like to hear the whole song it here 

Now for second inchie of the year for Every Inchie Monday where all the words this year have been chosen from Hitch Hiker's Galaxy. I have never even read it but Vic is a real fan so knows what every word represents. The word for this week is Sun. Another piece for my jigsaw.


Thank you for calling in and for the comments you leave 

Love Chrissie xx
