Suspend [illustration friday]

Peek-a-Boo Mermaid
Suspend you disbelief.

Mermaids are real!

And how do I know this? Because Bean told me so.

The other week, coming home from our play group, she was retelling the story of how the world was made, which they had read for story time.

She says to me as we drove home

"He made the trees first, and then the animals."

"And then what?" I asked

"The humans!"

"And what was next?"

She thought about this a long time.

"Then he made the mermaids mama!"

My children's obsession with mermaids is alive and well, last week we went to visit my Gran in Newcastle, and we had a fabulous week. And every time we drove past, or walked along the beach the hunt for mermies began. Bean saw lots of them, as did her sister Bug, the mama was to slow to see them, cause they went under the waves when ever I looked.

And who am I to say other wise?

Have a great week, tomorrow, I have a super give away surprise so make sure you pop back in!


  1. I've fallen in love with your work! The collaged background is so beautiful. And true, no arguing with mermaids being real! :)

    1. Thank you for leaving such a lovely comment Roshini x

  2. Someday if Bean stays interested in Mermaids, you will have to take her to Coney Island near New York City for the annual "Mermaid Parade." (There are lots of photos online if you do a search). Plus there is a cute children's picture book about participating in the parade ( Warning--this book contains instructions on sewing a mermaid tale...

    I continue to enjoy your whimsical art :-)

    1. @journey2wonder - thank you so much for that information! Bean would love it - it's her birthday soon, I think I'll grab the book for her. We are planning a 'one day' trip to the states, so I think we'll have to make sure the parades dates coincide! Thank you for visiting and taking the time to leave me such an awesome comment x
