Emporium

Hi Everyone!

Have you ever walked into a store and think where am I? You can’t even see the end of the store. Shelves are from floor to ceiling. There is room to breathe. You don’t bump into people looking for what you would like to buy.

Are emporiums seasonal? Yes, they can be.

Christmas all year round,


Flowers in containers, bulbs, seeds.
How about a plant in a decorative pot to take home and add to the perfect spot you have at home.

It is fascinating to walk into an emporium filled with antiques. From rocking chairs, antique pillow designs, tables, footstools, lamps of all designs. It’s like you are walking through a different century of furniture.

This emporium would be my favorite. And I’m sure it would be your favorite also.

Have a great day! Hope

Gossamer

Hi Everyone!

Very interesting word!
How to explain what it is – hmm?

Here’s a clue – it’s created by an eight (8) legged creature.
What they create comes in all different sizes and shapes.
Their creations you can find both outside and inside.

Their creations are beautiful after it rains. Each layer of creation shines with the colors of the rainbow.

The raindrops look like pearls.

The work that little creature does is unbelievable.
What do you think?

Have a great day! Hope

Fecund

Hi Everyone!

Who thought of this word? Well if you look at Etymonline.com, it started off as a Latin word “fecundus” then adjusted to Middle English “fecond” spelling, then Middle French (“fecond”), old French (“fecont”).

Look how fecund the apple trees are. Watch out here comes an apple!!

Abby: Boy Hope sure has fecund discussions at our seminars.
Mabel: Some times she sounds like the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz. Don’t you think?
Abby: You are so right! Full of straw.

Have a great day! Hope

Hi Everyone!

Ahoy! Come aboard the mighty ship of, hmm I forgot the name.
Hey, Salty Jack look over the side and let me know what the name of our ship is.

I! I! Captain Sparrow!!!!
Captain Sparrow ship’s name is Rocking Robin.

Rocking Robin, who in the heck gave the ship that name?
Me, my darling husband, after I saved your life with all the back and forth between our ship, Black Beard’s ship, then to Anne Bonny’s ship, over to Captain Kidd’s ship, then to Barbarossa Brothers ship, where we almost lost everything, including our ship.

Word Salad Bar – Pink

I can’t believe what I am seeing!
It just can’t be,
A pink mansion, no it ‘s the glass in my sunglasses,
Sunglasses off. Oh my gosh! It is a pink mansion.
As we walk inside and before my eyes I see,
a pink elephant here, below an indoor pink window with a unique bubble design,
turn my head and guess what I found,
another indoor pink window with a unique bubble design, with another pink elephant.
Walking through the hallway we hear people’s voices,
Lo and behold, everyone we know is there.

Guess what they are looking at?
Yes a pink elephant, under an indoor pink window.

Indoor pink, the glass, people’s voices, these words are from Creative Word Prompt #4 by Wolff Poetry.com

To tell the truth I’m not sure if what I wrote above is a form of poetry.
This was a challenge, enjoyment, adventure, learning, discovery, the opening of a new door for me.

This will brighten anyone’s day when they walk into a room.

Ikebana is the art of Japanese flower arranging. There are a number of different schools of ikebana, each with its own unique requirements. The requirements can involve angling stems in a certain way or choosing specific kinds of arrangements for different types of vases. The flowers used in all the schools are similar. Certain flowers have symbolic meanings in Japanese culture. Combining different flowers gives each ikebana arrangement a symbolic meaning.
