The First One to Pop into My Head~~Lyrics

It is funny that some days certain songs or poems or movies or just memories just pop into your head.  Nothing really spurs you to think of them they are just filed away in your head like a little filing cabinet I suppose.   What do you think ?  Possibly filed under pleasant  memories ?   Maybe a butterfly floats along in the sky and makes you think of a peaceful place where you have been and butterflies were in the picture.

On my art journal adventure, I do believe art is an adventure, Zinnia had the prompt of Lyrics.  So many subjects could come up.   Growing up in the , shall we say middle 40's to 2011 there are a lot of songs you could think of.  Well, some of them you could get out of your head as soon as you heard them.  Even "Down At Pappa Joes "is a pretty catchy one.

I remember going to the movies and for a whole 25 cents you could get a coke and popcorn and see the movie.   Cartoons were shown first or second, not for sure now and always Tom and Jerry was one of them.  Then the newsreels, we saw the world news, not that a child of few years would watch that part. There was no TV you know.  That was before Bennie and Cecil  or even Howdy Doody.   I bet that shocks some of you. We actually use to listen to the radio and listen to Little Orphan Annie, The Shawdow and other goodies like that. 

One of my favoites was Roy Rogers and Dale Evans and his wonderful horse Trigger.  One of the songs he sang was------"Don't Fence Me In"  Why I thought of that I don't know.  But I did so that is what I chose to art journal on. 

Don't Fence Me In---- I had to use rafia around the edges, didn't have any leather laces to play with.  This was from a knapkin and the horses were to pretty to trash.   I even found a little map of Texas and marked where we were. 
I used some of the tape that you use to fix sheet rock with.  Hey it is texture. 

I hope you enjoy it and thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world.    I guess I could sign off with Happy Trails.


  1. I so enjoyed reading your post tonight my new friend! Your work is amazing and I am inspired. I look forward to the two of us getting to know each other better and seeing what you have in store in the future. Keep creating and sharing!

  2. It is so true what you say about songs, they just enter somehow in your mind and keep tuning for hours..if not days!
    I don't know Roy Rogers really, only heard of him through a line in a song from Elton John saying " Roy Rogers is riding to town..." .
    Your creativeness is great, you made such a fine little art-piece.
    Have a very nice week Anette. Hugs from Milan.
