Magical Deep Sea Aquarium


I made this for some little friends of mine, but I
like it too!  Only in your imagination can you get
a mermaid to live in an aquarium!

Happy Spring!

The Best Thing in the World

WHAT'S the best thing in the world?
June-rose, by May-dew impearled;
Sweet south-wind, that means no rain;
Truth, not cruel to a friend;
Pleasure, not in haste to end;
Beauty, not self-decked and curled
Till its pride is over-plain;
Love, when, so, you're loved again.
What's the best thing in the world?
--Something out of it, I think.

When In Doubt, Don't

I am SO looking forward to Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp!
This is my take on Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass.
I grew up reading those books. 
I choose sanity!

Butterfly Globe

For everyone who is cold, or snowed-in:
Something to cheer you, warm you and remind you that,
yes, Spring will eventually return!

The Fairy Party

Tinkerbell, mid-flutter, welcoming the guests.  Everyone wore sparkly jewelry, sipped on pink punch and nibbled on pieces of a birthday cake with wings (yes, the cake had wings, not the people!  except for the birthday girl, and of course, the fairies).  A fun time was had by all!

Garden Jewels

A little impression of summer before summer turns into fall. I'm so grateful for all the rain we're getting in Florida~ it makes everything so green!

Tea and Mystery

I thought I'd share a wonderful website I happened upon today~ all about tea, tea parties, etc., with lots of links. I love mystery, but I also like to find great info, and this has a wealth of it! Enjoy!
