the 3 muses - "a song - any song"

i´m a huge fan of the grateful dead... hard to concentrate on a favorite song of them...
i also love their iconography very much... it´s all about skulls and roses, being the symbols of death and life woven together!
so for this challenge i decided to take these symbols - they are also the title of their 2-records album "skull and roses" from 1971.
(the stamp "skulls and roses" is custom made)

(back and front of the album)

and as i reall LOVE the grateful dead, this entry also qualifies for the wednesdaystampers challenge:)

the 3 muses - "time"

the sundial should show you the sunny hours, but there were only very few so far this year. we are soon at solstice and i haven´t spent a single day sitting outside in the evening so far... - too cold, too rainy...
wo ist die zeit geblieben? es ist schon bald wieder sonnwende und wir konnten noch keinen abend draußen sitzen, weil es dauernd regnet und kalt ist... die sonnenuhr hat dieses jahr beschäftigungspause...
