Mermaids and Side Tables....




Yes, it is a combination you see all the time! Especially when perusing the bottom of the ocean.  Yep, just mermaids hanging out, resting their cups of sea urchin tea on top of practical yet stylish side tables. 

They probably buy their furniture from some kind of underwater Kmart equivalent.. Sea-Mart..or CMart.  Gosh, here I am exposing all the homeware purchasing secrets of the every day mermaid...

Things That Live In My House, But Would Probably Live Under The Water, If I Were To Throw Them In The Ocean:

Side table - Kmart
Pink Mermaid Illustration - By ME, yes, I drew it with my own feet, I mean hands... I am very dexterous.
Vanilla Jafilla Candle - Supreme Boheme (I have never in my life wanted so much, to shrink myself and climb inside a candle.  It smells THAT good.  But I try not to shrink myself and climb into candles because the wax is hot and the flame is burny.)
Vase/Candle Holder - East West Design, South Fremantle

MERBABES...........



Who doesn't love mermaids?  I mean, apart from Ursula, I cannot think of anyone that does not love them and by love them I mean want to be them. I mean, want to dye their hair the same colour and sew their legs together and use permanent marker and bits of alfoil to draw scales on and sticky tape flippers to our feet and grow our hair long and learn to breath under water.  It’s essentially the entire plot to The Talented Mr Ripley, but if they were mermaids.  Hey, that’s a movie I would pay to see!

This illustration was done with my two favourite Instagram merbabe’s @sunfilledream and @lanbriget in mind.  I stalk their Instagram’s whenever I need some mermaid inspiration and they ALWAYS deliver.  

You can find this on my Society 6 also, wahh wahh wee wahhh

Counting down the days to summer when I get really get my mermaid on…

where is my margarita, and where is my wand for that matter??



It is 3.03pm on a Friday afternoon.  There is no margarita in my hand, or next to me, or on my desk or anywhere in my vicinity.

What is the problem here everyone?? Where is a margarita for me to drink and be merry with?

This is quite distressing.  I am not quite sure what to do with myself.


I have drawn about 5 pictures of margaritas in the notebook next to me, but so far none of them have magically come to life.  Is this because I'm not REALLY a wizard?  Have I been living a lie all this time?


There is a lot for me to contemplate it seems. 

But how are YOU doing?  Yes, it has been awhile.  I hope you are still a wizard and surrounded by margaritas on this winter Friday afternoon.

Well, hasn't this been pleasant.  Good day.

pictured: ink and watercolour illustration one of these is ALMOST a margarita, but it is mostly a hedgehog in disguise...

Mr Bird's Adventures.....

I have not visited blog land for a while, but the good news is that I have brought Mr Bird back to life! Hooray! Hoorah, what adventures he will go on, his legs are very long and he walks on them to places.

lets pretend its still summer by wearing summer dresses with winter knits....




 
 
It is the only way.  Good golly I miss summer.  It is STARTING to get slightly lighter earlier in the mornings and that is a good sign.
 
Don't you love how strategically placed the dogs look in the first photo? They are models.
 
This was a lovely sunny day a week or so ago.  Tomorrow it will be sunny also.  Sunny is good.  Life is good (even though it is still winter).
 
That is all.
 
P.s: if you have been wondering what Mr Bird is up to lately, he has made a reappearance over here, with a new sparkly makeover. Ooh Lah Lah.
