Happy Mother's Day!



The Mermaid
Say not the mermaid is a myth,
I knew one once named Mrs. Smith
She stood while playing cards and knitting,
Mermaids are not equipped for sitting
~ by Ogden Nash

Beneath the waters green and cool
The merfolk keep a swimming school,
The oysters trot, the lobsters prance
The dolphins come to join the dance,
But the jellyfish who are rather small
Can't seem to learn the steps at all
~ by Marchette Chute

Mermaids, sweet mermaids!

Greetings, friends! It is Easter weekend and I decided to finally do a bit of baking. I had bought a couple of edible mermaid tails a few months ago and was saving them for when I had gotten a chance to bake again. Today, I baked two small-sized vanilla cakes ...

And, a batch of confetti cupcakes as well ...

Wishing everyone a swimmingly fantastic weekend!

From the Treasure Chest

These little beauties were actually gifts from friends and family at Christmas and Yule. I thought that I would share them with all of you!

A cute Mermaid bank ...

A lovely mermaid wall portrait with a LED light ...

A beautiful Dragon Journal ...

And, a Mermaid hand towel ...

These two cool treasures were found at one of my favorite stores, "Celtic Myth & Moonlight" - a gorgeous Celtic Dragon Box ...

And, a Dragon-themed Wheel of the Year bag ...

Happy treasure hunting, my friends!

Mermaid fun!

Greetings all! I just wanted to share these really cool items which I found last weekend at our local "Michael's" store ...

A mermaid tail tray/mold that can be used for various uses - candy, jello treats, ice cubes, etc.

Small candy mermaid tails for cake and cupcake decorations ...


I plan on using these candy mermaid tails as soon as I get the time to begin baking again! Can't wait!

Have a swimmingly fantastic day, everyone!

Greetings all! I want to share with all of you a very beautiful haiku written by such a talented artist and one of my dearest of blogger friends Jan who had thoughtfully created this one for me - making it even more special to my heart! Thank you, Jan. I feel truly blessed ... and thank you so much for allowing me to share it with everyone here!

(Written for my favorite mermaid...Kim)

so pretty the mermaid
in spangles and shells
found among deep sea treasures
along with many mermaid tales ~ JFM

I would also like to share this video from the movie, "Dream A Little Dream" in honor of all of us who truly enjoy keeping our dreams alive forever. This one is for you, dear Jan, I hope you enjoy, my friend!
