Artist Unknown

Out of the lake/river/sea and into the POND! With everyone seeming to have had a fair bit of fun with our last theme, I thought it could be fascinating seeing how each of you might depict such a little body of water. You could show it from above or below, for example. No idea but I'm sure we'll all figure it out after some reflection

See you back here on the 19th, if not sooner. By that time we'll have de-cluttered even further after our big yard sale this coming weekend. It feels good lightening the load, so to speak. Best of inspirations to everyone and, as always, thank you for playing along! I'm really looking forward to seeing what you do.


Well, our CT "Time for Tea" was a smaller gathering this time around, but hey, that can be cozy too. Speaking of which, I forgot to initially mention that Alex and I had our very own Summer Tea Party for neighbours and alike the other week. I'm pretty sure our guests had a good time and it certainly put me in the mood for my own artistic contribution for that theme! (If you're at all interested to see how it turned out, you might like popping over to our couple's blog.)

Onto Father's Day: mine was just wonderful. We all went out to a lovely restaurant I've not been to before, compliments of the kids! My fave part? Just being there together, laughing and enjoying that closeness. Their cards too always make me cry. (Yes I'm such a mush.) Good times anyway...and good food! While I'm not terribly a sea-foodie, this place served the most incredible entrees. It truly was fantastic.

With all that said, it occurred to me that, hey, we've never done a CT theme on FISH so how about we do that now? Of course, yours could be in the ocean, not necessarily on a plate! Perhaps, they're even jellyfish instead? Hmm.... the possibilities are as varied as these delightful fish above. Enjoy.

See you back here, July 5th. Maybe one of you might cook up some fish for the 4th? Now, that would be novel.
