The Letter I for Ibis & Ivy

I is for Ibis & Ivy

I wanted to do another letter I, but I words were not inspiring and I was at a loss. 

There not many I words that are tangible things. 
Okay, there is iguana and iris, but that is about it after ivy and ibis. 

I had to look up what an ibis looked like. To my surprise the birds were not only white, but some are a marvelous RED

One was not enough. Of course once I added a second!  There had to be a little romance happening since Valentine's Day is two weeks away. 


So there we are, my IDEA for the letter I.

January Blahs


It has been very cold and snowy in Ohio during this month of January,
not to mention the endless gray skies!

Snow at Christmas is festive, but not in January when the reality of winter hits. 
Heavy coats and boots weigh us down as we try to make our way out of the comfort of our homes.

The bright side is this: there is less than a week left of January and February is a short month!
The days are getting longer!

Both January and February are those months of recuperation, collecting our thoughts, and cleaning out closets of unwanted stuff. It is the preparation for Spring!

Maybe January is a necessity.

The Letter H - H is for Hose and Hare if You Dare

H is for Hose and Hare if You Dare

Okay, it is January and we are having record freezing temperatures here. Brrrrr just doesn't describe it. So rather than bemoan the cold, I tried to think of warmer thoughts. So here is a new letter H for my illustrated alphabet series. Don't ask me how I came up with hose in this weather, but the days are getting longer and I have spring on my mind.

My husband, Norm, and I will be doing a show together! Our work is cut out for us the next couple of days! Lots to think about and lots of work to hang!
