Mermaid Monday : Holiday Weekend Delights

Happy Thanksgiving from somewhere in the sun!!

I hope everyone enjoyed a long, luxurious weekend
full of delicious food, fun, and autumnal delights!!

Thanksgiving morning found me enjoying a blissful bike ride on the beach, 
sipping hot tea in the sand, 
and generally enjoying the chilly morning air before the festive cooking began!!

It's a back-to-work Mermaid Monday now, 
so I thought it would be nice to share a few snap shots of my holiday adventure=)...

Have a beautiful start to the week!!

Mermaid Monday : Autumn Wishes

The woods are full of fairies; 
the sea is full of fish; 
the trees are full of golden leaves; 
let's make an autumn wish. 


It looks like the fall faeries have been busy around town this last week...
sprinkling a bit of orange 'n gold magic wherever they landed!!

...So I thought an early morning adventure to capture them in the sunrise
would be a beautiful way to start the week!!

Friday Flower Pick - Clover Sunrise

...It's late November,
and it's the calm before the storm of Holiday splendor (that I much adore).

So I thought it was best to keep it simple=)
 Simple can be stunning too!!
...Just like this darling little clover flower,
 captured in a bokeh of sunrise sunshine, 
on a carpet of green grass.

Wednesday Words of Wisdom

“That which God said to the rose, 
and caused it to laugh in full-blown beauty, 
He said to my heart, 
and made it a hundred times more beautiful.”

Friday Flower Pick : Ivory Bougainvillea

It is November after all...
and it's a little slim pickins out there on my Friday Flower Pick walks,
at least as far as colorful, bountiful blooms are concerned.

...But anyway, I'm looking for something a little different!!

When I stumbled upon these stunning bougainvillea leaves in a creamy ivory color, I knew I'd found just the botanical thing to suit my autumn mood!!


Happy Friday!!

Wednesday Words of Wisdom

"November is usually such a disagreeable month...
as if the year had suddenly found out that she was growing old 
and could do nothing but weep and fret over it. 
This year is growing old gracefully...
just like a stately old lady who knows she can be charming 
even with gray hair and wrinkles. 

From Anne of Avonlea

Hello, November!!

I can't deny that I haven't enjoyed spending October weekends 
swimming in the ocean,
or that it wasn't perfectly lovely to plan my Halloween ensembles without having a single 'coat' worry!!
...But today we are finally enjoying our first chilly Fall day!!
Time to break out all the capelets I had been industriously crocheting during those summer evenings at the pool. 

...I really loved this fun 'n fabulous little November outfit that I put together today, so I stopped to snap a pic before heading out the door!! That's the Mystical Cape by Red Heart that I'm rocking, and I blogged about my heather grey version a few months ago right here.

...And that's the way I'm welcoming in what I hope will be a cozy, cheerful month of long nights, twinkling stars, and maybe even a little rain shower here 'n there!!

A girl with a penchant for rain boots and umbrellas can only hope=)

Hello, November!!
