THE CONSEQUENCE of INSOMNIA (178/365 DAYS, 4.0)

Since I can't sleep because of the pain, 
despite the handful of pills I take daily... 
Why not have some fun 
to keep me from getting bored out of my mind. 
You may appreciate what I've come up with...


"Channeling Warhol

There is this group on Flickr that proposes a challenge. 
They suggested 3 artists to inspire ourselves with, 
and rework one of our picture in such a style. 
I chose Warhol as it is the era I grew up in 
and I adapted a recent picture of roses I took last week. 
I'm pretty pleased with the end result, 
but something else came to mind while I was processing my pictures...


"Childhood Memories

Yeah, 
something came to mind alright!!! 
Like those ugly vinyl tablecloths my mom used to buy, 
possibly at Woolworth or Zellers[?]. 
Whatever the case, 
I always disliked those 
and my mom knew that... 
but she felt it gave the place a festive look. 
Right now, 
a little festive look would be welcomed to brighten up my long days and nights,  
even if it comes in garish colors and patterns... 
Funny the things that pop in one's mind. 
I often think of my mother, 
but I'll say this: 
I never think of her tablecloths!!! 
(Except for today...)

    1. I am!! These were fun to do, despite the ungodly hour...
      To me, tablecloths are there to give a finishing touch to the setting,
      not to outshine neither the food nor the company...
      My mom and I sure had a different philosophy about such matters...
      :D

  2. Oh, but if your mother's tablecloths were this chic, it would have been a different story. I'd use one of these! So sorry about the pain and insomnia but grateful for the creations!
