Living The Dream

"Living the dream"
I heard this saying twice last week, by two different people. When I asked how they were, the response was "living the dream". At first I thought they were being sarcastic, but I realized later they were not. I think it is wonderful. What a nice way to live your life, to be so positive and happy. And then I realized I am too. So from now on when someone ask me how I'm doing, this will be my response. Of course it is easier said than done, but I will try.

I bought this lovely book about Gretta Garbo in an antique store. The photos are great. I got this photo from the book. Obviously I altered it somewhat in my photo editing program. I guess it is OK to use this photo here on my blog. I don't want to break any copyright laws. I was wondering if it would be Ok to sell some of the images like this one on my etsy shop. Can anyone tell me if I would be breaking any laws if I did?


  1. I'm not sure about breaking copyright laws...but if a photograph is altered and it's not the original...seems to me that would be all's not the "original" any longer.

    As for living the dream...that's a lovely expression, isn't it? And what we should all strive to be doing...I love that you are going to!!

  2. Don't Dream It, Be It... same song, different words. LOL.
    This is a lovely image and I am looking forward to seeing what you make of it.
