If I Was...


I've been in blog-limbo the last couple of months.  A series of minor health issues, work stuff and general blah-ness have kept me from writing.  Caroline from the wonderful Coeur de La posted her list of 'If I Was' and asked her readers to join in.  What a great way to un-limbo myself! So here goes (thank you Caroline):

If I was a month, I’d be late October.

If I was a day of the week, I’d be Friday.
If I was a time of day, I’d be dusk.
If I was a planet, I’d be Venus.

If I was a sea animal, I’d be a starfish.


If I was a direction, I’d be South.
If I was a piece of furniture, I'd be an old, faded ottoman sofa.
If I was a liquid, I’d be champagne.
If I was a gemstone, I’d be a moonstone.
If I was a tree, I’d be a beech tree.
If I was a tool, I’d be a super-sharp scissors.

If I was a flower, I’d be a tulip.
If I was a type of weather, I’d be an early hot summer morning.

If I was a musical instrument, I’d be bells.
If I was a color, I’d be purple.
If I was an emotion, I’d be reflective.

If I was a fruit, I’d be a blueberry.
If I was a sound, I’d be windchimes.


If I was an element, I’d be water.
If I was a car, I’d be Toyota Rav 4, what I drive now, preferably shiny black.

If I was a food ... I would be a mozarella, olive and basil homemade pizza (with garlic bread).

If I was a place, I’d be right here...south coast of Ireland.


If I was a material, I'd be a soft, luscious velvet.

If I was a taste, I'd be fresh.
If I was a scent, I’d be oakmoss.

Do feel free to join in over at Caroline's (Coeur de La ).

Hello Siobhan!
I just discovered your blog from your comment on 5 precious things. I LOVE your blog. It's somehow just right, just beautiful. I'm looking forward to more posts. xxx

Oh Siobhan, that was . . .delicious, no other word for it! Waht a wonderful way to get un-stuck! I love the images it paints & many of my what-ifs would be so similar to yours. The same day, month & gemstone for sure. I so am tempted to write my own down now! x x

Oh my...reading this was so *very* wonderful!

Really, don't you think that something like this is what we all should be carrying around, written on our T-shirts and business cards, so people could really get a feel for who we are, deep down inside?

Blessings, and thank you for visiting my own blog recently with your lovely comment.
