Weekly Challenge - "Melange"

after a day of hard labor in the yard i decided to treat myself. i made a cup of tea & stretched out with my newest edition of somerset studio. looking for inspiration for this week's challenge, i came upon the section called "melange".

the definition is.....

noun, assortment, conglomeration, gallimaufy , hodgepodge, jumble, medley, miscellany, mishmash, mixed bag, mixture, olio, pasticcio, pastiche, patchwork, potpourri, salmagundi, variety.

a little secret about me....i once was a spelling bee queen but i'll be honest.... i only know half those words. they sound pretty cool though, don't you think?

MELANGE!!!! take it & run!!!! leave me a comment that you're up to the challenge & i'll gather them all next sunday by noon. be inspired to create! have fun! show your talent!

have a wonderful week!!!!

Intriguing theme, Pat!

Right now, my work space is such a 'melange' of jumbled objects, I'll have to get busy and clear the conglomeration so that I can work on this pastiche ...lol! Sorry :)

Perfect theme! Gina, you took the words right out of my mouth. My desk is a collection of things I love and definitely a MESS, so I think I am just a lover of "beautiful messes"!
Count me in!
