covet: verb

to want to have something very much

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I discovered a new challenge blog called DragonsDream Tag It On through one of my WOYWW friends May from May's Happy Daze. ( she is on their design team!! )

Their challenge this week: #114 is called The Secret Garden, after the book title. Good thing they let you go "beyond the obvious" because not only have I never read the book but I am making a tag for my mermaid altered book for Elizabeth's AB class from Altered Book Lover.


What a mermaid might covet for her secret garden:
a butterfly
palm tree
camera
wine
keys that represent a house and a car
flip flops for legs she will never have
holidays:
   snowglobe for Christmas
   chocolate bunny sucker for easter
   a fall leaf for Thanksgiving
   a box of chocolates for Valentines day

Looking at my tag makes me think I ended up more with a treasure chest than a garden but it is where the inspiration took me, plus I just realized that I forgot to use a stamp. Sorry, next time I will try and follow the rules better ;)

If you come back tomorrow you can get a peek of the page from my AB where I will be using the tag.

This is TOO funny with the flip-flops and the car keys. I look forward to seeing your AB page, especially since I've been so late getting here today/tonight.

Actually, many water people do indeed have legs, although depending on the culture and genesis of the individual it could be once in a lifetime, once a month, only at night, or anytime (some also have webbing between toes and fingers).
