Home is where the Heart is

Home is where the Heart is.
This is a different form of a home.
Someone lived here once, but
now it only holds memories and ghosts.

This is my home for April at the Dollhouse Project.
Each month I am portraying a different art form and a home.
The top picture is the original photograph and
the lower picture is an altered photograph on Photoshop Element.
I am just beginning to learn this new art form, but
I see all kinds of fun possibilities.

Soon I will be leaving my home for adventure,
but at the end of the adventure I will look forward to home.

Marilyn, I am having a hard time identifying this lighthouse. Can you give me a clue?

I've been thinking about your adventure this week --- and am wishing you GREAT TIMES!

Home is where my heart is.
Enjoy being home in Kansas.

Pleasant adventures to you,

I knew it had to be somewhere on the Oregon coast... so I looked it up... Yaquina Bay Lighthouse.

Marilyn said...

Yes, it is Yaquina Bay Lighthouse in Newport, Oregon. I love the lighthouses along the Oregon coast.

Have fun playing with photoshop...I have it too but have never sat down to learn it...way too time consuming and complicated for me...let me know once you got it all figured out my friend and maybe you can teach me a thing or two..hugs. xoxox

Tracy said...

A lighthouse! I've always wanted to say in one of those, let alone live in one! So sad that this one is boarded up... I like to imagine it alive with living again! Beautiful place--easy to see why you chose this one. Happy Weekend, Marilyn... and fun looking forward to your trip soon! :o) ((HUGS))

Jeanne said...

Love and hugs
That looked like a gorgeous home
It is too bad someone cannot move in and love it well.
Love you

A boarded up lighthouse? In Oregon? Somehow that does not seem possible. Happy photoshopping.

Relyn said...

I do love that lighthouse. I've only seen it once in person, but your picture took me right back there.

Trixie and Dustin said...

Looks like I shall have to politely arm-wrestle a few others for the chance to live in the lighthouse! Yes, I have been to Newport, long time ago and not on a sunny day as when you snapped your pic... boy, I would do great, loving things to and with that house... sigh. xo, travel funly,

Again, you inspire me with your interpretation of the dollhouse project! I love it! Today, I will return to my own project because of your nudge. :)

While you are traveling to the far reaches of the globe, I will be traveling, too. To Germany. Back in the 3rd week of May. I look forward to reading of your great adventure! And thank you for the lovely comment about my magazine.

xoxo, Graciel
