Celebrate – IF

Celebrate to me always involves music. I mean really for me, a celebration without a song, a lyric, music, a ditty…well it just is not a celebration! So for this week, in honor of love, take the one you love, put on a tune that you can hum together, dance together or look at one another to and celebrate, because love is always a cause for celebration.

So here I’ve provided the instruments, the singer and a microphone, now all you have to do is improvise…celebrate!

Love, Happiness and Peace to you all!

  1. Beautiful illo, yes, I love music, so can see a celebration with no music.!!

    Thanks for your visit in my blog and nice comment.

  3. Thank you for your welcoming to IF. I am always interested in works of other artists. It’s always, in my point of view, very enriching and give me a lot to think.
    Thus said, I scrolled down your blog and discovered your multiple talents, your sense of colors, your humour and your texts…

  21. Hey girly, I know how it with posting. It’s hard and I really have no time to do this. I just have so much artwork saved up from other projects that I can post at least twice a week. It’s still not easy with a hungry husband and a daughter who says,”I’m so bored mommy!” It’s a wonder if I get the chance to go the ladies room by myself. You are doing VERY well as far as I can see I’m your 70th person! You’ve been very busy he he he!!!
