Unicorn phaves

1. IrenaSophia 2. jessgonacha 3. sheridesthelion 4. AustinMichael 5. gatheringspriggs 6. mountoctopus 7. justalittlecreepy 8. ellenshipley 9. nutandbee

So, er, unicorns. I know they don't technically exist. But they are cool just the same. Or maybe that is why. No. 1 is my numero uno.

Rabbit phaves

1. retrowhale 2. kikiandpolly 3. pengpengs 4. LilyMoon 5. SepiaLepus 6. theblackapple 7. KatrineK 8. poordogfarm 9. TummyMountain

Rabbits... often a bit twee, but I think I've found a bunch that are just a couple of skips from oTT twee-ness. ;-) No. 3 is my favourite. That RED colour is awesome!

Quail phaves

1. apak 2. JustinRichel 3. StephanieFizer 4. matouenpeluche 5. OrangeWillow 6. zutsut 7. UrbanSplendor 8. artgoodies 9. ArtFlair

Oh Q. Not the most popular animal letter. To be honest, I am surprised that I found this many nice ones! But nice they certainly are! No. 1 is my favourite, but those shoes on the quail in no. 7 just crack me up!

1. exit343design 2. kbillette 3. WhatCheer 4. JoSpaul 5. erinaellis 6. madebykaty 7. Cakeasaurus 8. falldowntree 9. withremote

Penguins are cool. Nos. 1 and 3 are my favourites. Of course, my favourite penguin is Pizza the Penguin, but he's not part of this mosaic... ;-)

Narwhal phaves

1. eggmanstudios 2. NoosedKitty 3. stellarbaby 4. tugboatprintshop 5. juliepeach 6. SepiaLepus 7. marystreacle 8. sheridesthelion 9. StephanieFizer

How awesome are ALL of these? Pretty DARN awesome if you ask me. However, no. 3 is my favourite by a really long shot. It is amazing!

Monkey phaves

1. NoosedKitty 2. MisNopalesArt 3. matthewporterart 4. Wakulla 5. OrangeWillow 6. sheridesthelion 7. rottobee 8. altardbeast 9. yoote

This one took a bit longer to put together than most of these. You would believe the amount of sock monkey related stuff is out there! Not too fond of sock monkeys to be honest. There's something a bit freaky about them. Perhaps because they are a bit similar to clowns? Really don't like clowns!

Llovely llama phaves

1. falldowntree 2. Toxicguineapigs 3. artsharkdesigns 4. brettisagirl 5. PatriciasPalette 6. AnnRan 7. mockingbirdlane 8. nordicpeek 9. hybernate

Llamas are some of the funniest creatures! 1 and 4 are my favourites. Phew! I does take some time to put these mosaics together, but I love it! Although I don't think there'll be a daily one in March, I definitely want to keep making them. Any suggestions?

Jellyfish phaves

1. doctorpinky 2. tugboatprintshop 3. momentofstars 4. arcanearts 5. yellena 6. strawberryluna 7. ricksbigart 8. arcanearts 9. kendrabinney


Of course, JELLYFISH! Thanks to (Rosie (no link?) for the suggestion. And what awesome selection of jellies to be found on Etsy, don't you think? Not sure I can pick a real favourite, but I'm quite drawn to no. 1 and 8.

Ice cream phaves

1. nikscarlett 2. pspress 3. skullbunny 4. rkdsign88 5. audreypongracz 6. bluebirdiesinger 7. 3LambsGraphics 8. acrylicana 9. kirby

I was going to use insects as Mela suggested, but I'm just not an insect person; creepy crawly things make me very uneasy! So, it's ice cream instead. Enjoy! ;-)

My favourite is no. 1. Great colours and cool image altogether. No. 9 reminds me of our honeymoon, oddly enough! In Rome it is not uncommon to see guys in smart suits coming out of a gelateria with an ice cram in hand. Much like you'd see his English counterpart with a styrofoam cup of tea or coffee.

Goaty phaves

1. echarrow 2. BradBunkers 3. thewildwoodflower 4. bridgetfarmerprints 5. berkleyillustration 6. apexpredators 7. thepoppytree 8. borzoiart 9. olofsdotter

Not all animals are equally represented in the artwork available on Etsy (and not all of it is, well, nice, he he). But I am still surprised that so far I've only once had to change the animal I had chosen because of a lack of good-enough artwork. There is more goat artwork than I imagined! My favourites are 1 and 2. No. 1 is just amazing!

Flamingo phaves

1. zand2ohs 2. surrealprints 3. minkeeprints 4. cristantecreations 5. KatyHolmes 6. Abunnyaday 7. MultiplePersonality 8. dogartstudio 9. tstellanova

Flamingos! One of my favourite birds. Number 1 and number 7 are my favourites.

I hope you are enjoying these ABC art mosaics as much as I am. So much fun looking through Etsy to find some cool prints.

Being the job-less bum that I am at the moment, I can only pretend-buy all the phantastic art I see. Here is the result of my latest pretend-shopping spree. I'm really liking yellow at the moment.

Snowy phaves


1. HidenSeek 2. HidenSeek 3. vusova 4. naokosstoop 5. sarahjanestudios 6. HelloMeMy 7. ouou 8. obsoleteworld 9. pipodoll

Oh wouldn't it be lovely with some snow? I sure would like some, but there's not much chance of that happening. Booo!

Sorry about the quietness on the blog... there's just not a lot to blog about. And as in 'real life' I prefer to be quiet instead of mindlessly chattering on. We are going to London today, so hopefully, at least, there will be some interesting pictures. Maybe some Christmas decorated shop windows... :-)

Squirrels are funny. When I see one (or two or three or four even!) in the church yard on the way to work, it always makes me smile.

"Phaves"?!
