If I Were........

First, a Meme and then a giveaway by Miss Janice!

his is a nice meme I found that you might wish to join in on your own site. Might be nice :) I think memes are a nice way to get to know about others.

If I were a gem stone I would be an Amethyst.

If I were a pair of shoes,I would be Mary Janes.Like these from Etienne Aigner

If I were an animal I would be a snow leopard.

Thomas Kinkade painting

If I were a time of day, I would be twilight

If were a month, I would be November

If I were a place,I would be Tahiti with its clear baby turquoise and violet waters.


The falls at Ein Gedi, Israel where King David was refreshed.

If I were a taste, I would be sweet like Baklava.

If I were a sea animal, I would be a clown fish.

If I were a food, I would be Spanikopita. (recipe below)

If I were a color, I would be London blue like the topaz.

If I were a musical instrument, I would be a Steinway grand or the organ in the Mormon Tabernacle.

If I were a flower, I would be a Violet

If I were a song , I would be Anne's theme from Anne of Green Gables or Libertango by Astor Piazzolla Or his Adios Nonino. Depending on the mood of the day.(songs below)

If I were a liquid, I would be Asti Spumonte or a glass of iced tea.

If I were a planet, I would be the Moon.

If I were an object, I would be a Tiffany lamp

If I were fruit, I would be Pineapple (not sure pineapple is a fruit.)OK googled it! Yes it is indeed a fruit and the only Bromelaid fruit in the world. Cool. Bromelain is good for digestion.

If I were a sound I would be Glass Wind chimes . You know the old Chinese imported ones .. squares of hand painted glass glued onto thin red string ? They made the most gentle sound.

If I were a day of the week, I would be Saturday.

If I were a pattern, I would be dotted Swiss.

OK Your turn, how about it?

    You've inspired me, I'm going to do one of those memes.


  2. Hi Annie,
    What a great meme :) Hope you had a great weekend!! Iron Man 2 was great! I really loved it! As I said before I am not a action hero or comic book fan at all. But I was really impressed with the first Iron Man and this one was even better!! Have a wonderful week ahead.
    Hugs, Dru

  3. Hi Annie, beautiful meme. :) May I have a slice of Spanakopita? It's one of my fav Greek dishes. Have a lovely day. Cheers!

  4. Hello Annie, I love your answers to the meme. The photos are perfect too. I love amethysts. Thanks for the Spanakopita recipe, I may try it this weekend. Have a great day, hugs

  5. Hi Annie! Enjoyed reading your answers to the meme and seeing your recipe and hearing "your song." Don't think I'll find a Darylynn song. That photo of Tahiti reminds me that needs to be on my "to-do list!" I always wanted to stay in one of those thatched huts over the water. (((Hugz)))

  6. Great entry Annie;

    The photos are pefect for the meme. We have a lot of the same "If I Weres" :) Blue Topaz is one of my bithstones (December) and a favorite of mine. Asti Spumanti is the only sweet Champagne to celebrate with. Coming from an Italian home that was the only kind to have. I love Spanakopita and haven't had it in years. I love Anne of Green Gables and own all three of the dvd's. I also have a couple of the TV series Avonlea dvds. Enjoyed the music videos.

    Have a lovely day my friend. Hugs

  7. Ciao Annie, happy Friday! Zeno and I did the meme too at our blog. Hum, now I've noticed the one we used is a bit different...
