j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

Teaser Tuesdays (4 for me)


Introduced to me by Bookworm Barista
Hosted by Should be reading

Here's the teaser:

An hour later, their hunger sated by cheese and oatmeal cakes, the remaining cranberry tarts and some good Guosim cider, everybeast adjourned to the ford bank. Kubba pointed out the hornbeam tree, around the leeside of which hung a red tassled rope, its length going off, up amid the foliage.
~ Lord Brocktree by Brian Jacques, pg. 151

*My note:

I'm currently enjoying reading this book to my children at bedtime. It may take us a while to get through it but it seems fun so far and the animals make it seem interesting because their voices are enjoyable! Another plus is the tiny illustrations at the top of the chapter headings. So far, a likable read.
Be sure to look at the links above for instructions on how you can join in on the fun if you want.

About this blog

Welcome Readers~to my blog! A tiny extension of myself and my life. Here, I'll share this journey through my top passions in my life - reading, writing, and creating. You can expect to read poetry, view my papercrafts and read design related posts. Every once in a while, I hope you'll grasp an honest feel of my heart. If you haven't noticed, I love flamingos! I think they are beautiful birds. *Thanks for your attention.*
She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
