"She watches herself in a black and white dream,
as she searches for love through each valley and stream;
along each city street and each ocean shore,
she searches each paper and each book and more ...

... she's very aware that time is dancing by,
and if in dreams she could, she would make herself fly;
so she might better look for him, this man she's not yet met,
she knows it will happen soon ...
it just hasn't happened yet ..."

Could she be you?
She knows she's probably passed him on some busy city street ...
and she dreams every night of the day they finally meet.

Hi everybody!
The "COULD SHE BE YOU" series
is always fun and inspiring for me
 and I hope for you, as it takes us away ...
and maybe your answer to the question
is sometimes yes!
Since it's Valentine's week,
I created this fantasy is especially for those of you
that just haven't met THE one yet.

Dreaming up different scenarios always opens
creative doors for me as an artist ...
by travelling to different places and circumstances
through words and photos, ideas begin to flow
for illustrations.

On another note ...
did Mother Nature pay you a visit last week?
If so, it probably made for very snowy Valentine shopping!

Don't forget!
There's a free illustrated fortune cookie gift tag
to add your own fortune to and
 attach to your Valentine's gift (see below) ...
In case you missed the simple instructions
 for assembling the tag, just go to this post.

click on the fortune cookie tag link.

See you Wednesday, lovelies!

Gorgeous photos, Sandy! I always dream in color (preferably in pastels or in pink), but black & white photos (and movies like the Roman holiday) will always be the epitome of chic and glamour to me!

Hope you're having a lovely week!

I've always been a fan of black and white photos. These are all beautiful but I especially like the Arc de Triomphe one.
PS It's actually just started snowing here - very pretty!
