Calamity-Kim celebrated mermaids last week. Mermaids fascinate me, so I thought I’d continue the celebration this week on my own blog. To start, here’s some mermaid music to enjoy:
Mermaid Paper Doll created by the ever-amazing Calamity Kim herself via her Etsy shop.
I’m collecting mermaid fabrics to make a quilt and will use this gift of Laurel Burch mermaid fabric given to me by my dear friend Kristie (web site and Etsy store).
Glass mermaid wine bottle stopper, a recent gift from my brother-in-law Jeff.
Artist and musician Lisa Thiel painted this portrait of me as a mermaid in 2003.
Replica of an old mermaid tavern sign from Boston, a gift from my husband who strangely enough found it in an antique shop in Bisbee, AZ.
I framed three mermaid pictures for our master bath and found bits of poetry to go with each. This sample picture has a quote about mermaids from Alfred Lord Tennyson.
Dish towels I’m embroidering using Aunt Martha’s Hot Iron Transfers (The Mystic Mermaid #3984). So far I’ve completed four, only three more to go.
There’s much more to my mermaid collection, but I’m pretty sure you get the idea of my love for all things mermaid.
