Yes a little spring on its way here, at least my mermaid
shows it will soon bloom and grow, in my garden.

I used a lovely piece of driftwood, for her body, and
used the paper napkin to add a little more interest!!
Also on her wings  ,which is made from cardstock ,
I added paper napkin !

Her tail is old laces , and a bit of old found fishing nets.

She is smiling happily ,to welcome all good things!!!

Tulips almost finished, but so very beautiful, all the same!

How are you all doing, dear friends ?
I hope your weekend has been lovely, and 
wishes you a wonderful new week !!

Hugs and love

She's wonderful, Dorthe - I love how you used the driftwood to create her body, and the tail fanning out is so clever. What a sweet face too.

The tulips are fabulous - I love when they go crazy like that!

Now who would have thought to use a paper napkin or two for your mermaid's dress and wings? She looks so attractive dressed that way bearing the most pretty face and hair.
Her tail looks so full in all those layers of lace and doilies too. It may still be cold sweetie but surely creating these will help Spring to come much quicker.
Wishing you some sweet hugs with love across the seas where more mermaids might be!

Hi Dorthe,
She is a spring mermaid indeed.
She is more Spring, than the weather, here.
It is terrible. But the smile of your mermais, gives a real sense of spring.
She is lovely!!.
