The Letter M for Mermaids

M is for Marvelous Mermaids

Finally another idea for the letter M. 
My last approach with the letter M was M is for Mustache. Although fun, it seemed a bit limited as to my only M offering. 

I thought of map, but I have done the map theme before with C is for Compass and G is for Globe, although I may do one yet in that as it could become a theme. Thought of mountains, morning glories, and marigolds as well, but mermaids won out.

Looking for Spring

Looking for Spring

The "polar vortex" has kept my yard pretty much covered in snow this winter. Usually there is a spring tease somewhere in February, but alas, this has not happened. The only relief from the winter doldrums is that the days are getting longer and we have had a few days of blue skies to accompany the sunshine. 

Here is a little something to brighten up the last dregs of winter. I am keeping and eye out for my robin buddies.

Tea for Two

Tea for 2

I am done with winter. 
I started this design in the middle of gray skies and snow. I kept wrestling with the color. Guess I needed to see some green. 

Today the sun was out and the snow was melting and I was finally able to finish this design.
Yes, it is supposed to get cold again and I am sure there will be plenty more gray skies, but my thoughts are in Spring and warmer weather.

Make a Wish

Make a Wish

Well, I was going to design a daffodil, but I wound up with a dandelion.
I think I need a wish for Spring to be on its way.

Looking for Spring

Sweet Spring!

Yes, I am tired of the Polar Vortex! 
Tired of snow! 
Tired of freezing cold temperatures! 
Tired of gray skies! 
Tired of boots, gloves, and heavy overcoats!

I know the ground hog said six more weeks of winter, but my thoughts are flying toward SPRING!

The Letter I for Ibis & Ivy

I is for Ibis & Ivy

I wanted to do another letter I, but I words were not inspiring and I was at a loss. 

There not many I words that are tangible things. 
Okay, there is iguana and iris, but that is about it after ivy and ibis. 

I had to look up what an ibis looked like. To my surprise the birds were not only white, but some are a marvelous RED

One was not enough. Of course once I added a second!  There had to be a little romance happening since Valentine's Day is two weeks away. 

He IDOLIZES her! 
Sigh! 

So there we are, my IDEA for the letter I.
