Of course, being a mermaid lover I couldn't resist creating an underwater scene showing a mermaid's house.  For the challenge this week, I am sharing my mermaid dream home.

  5. The sea ponies were out back so you couldn't see them. The water-proof cupcakes sound delicious! I'm so glad you like my mermaid house.
