Mermaid Tea Party & a Giveaway



Today is the day, it's the mermaid tea party!
A lovely event hosted by Lisa Kettell of Faerie Enchantment. Be sure to stop in and visit her today, and see the list of mermaids participating in this day of salty escapades and swimmingly sweet giveaways!

The merfolk have been abuzz with chatter and excitement, and there is even a rumor going around that the handsome and charming Frog Prince may make an appearance!

*

Guests were greeted at the door by Flippy Frog offering a tray of the finest caviar and tobiko served with clam crackers. Mmmmmmmmmm. Thank you Flippy.




A Hawaiian mermaid did the hula while playing the ukulele, she was a sight to see!




Lokelani has been waiting for this day for months. Now that she has all of the merfolk together she is ready to deliver her call to action.



Lokelani (lo-kay-lan-ee) is a Hawaiian mermaid activist. She started a group called MPETH (like "empath") which stands for

"Mer People for the Ethical Treatment of Humans".


Lokelani speaks out about speciesism, focusing on the poor treatment of humans, who are believed to be of low intelligence, and are known to be very gullible.



MPETH is particularly concerned with the sirens, a group of merbeauties who lure human sailors out to sea, often causing them to be lost or drown. The sirens' have been known to sink a ship, then loot the treasure for sport.



Lokelani holds a pearl of knowledge and hope. She implores all merpeople to end speciesism, and to work with her to build a bridge of trust between the mer people and humans.


*

Well, now that that seriousness is over, how about a show and tell from Merinda, a sweet and silly little mermonkey who has quite a treasure to show off:


Merinda found a gorgeous and sizeable ruby in a shipwreck recently. As far as she knows no sirens were involved.

*

And now for the grand finale:

The Frog Prince!



Everyone was concerned about the Frog Prince because he recently traveled to Anaheim, California to participate in the CHA show. That went quite well, however he was injured on his return home and had to undergo some surgery.
Everyone is so glad to see him back in action. He's such a charmer, when FP enters a room, all eyes are on him.




Lokelani got his support for MPETH, and he has his own plan to consult with her and the merpeople about the humans' pollution of the freshwater (which of course ends up in the ocean). He is hoping they will be able to team up and find a way to implore the humans to stop polluting. Some of his people are being born with mutations now, such as two heads and no feet!!! It really is quite scary. But that is for another day.


So there is just one more item on the agenda.
You did hear me mention something about a giveaway, right?


Just leave me a comment here, and I will chose (by random number generator) one lucky winner to receive a love blossom magnet similar to this one:

But that's not all, there will be two winners.
This mermaid event would not be complete without a mermonkey giveaway, and this little mermonkey was created just for this purpose.



She is a mini mermonkey ornament, just 2.75" tall, with an armload of fantastic treasures to offer you. She has a beautiful amethyst, a piece of a Sunrise Shell from Kauai, and another favorite shell she found at her favorite beach.




This morning she has been frolicking with her best friend, Lola, who will be showing up in my etsy shop later today.

Leave me a comment to be included in the giveaways. You must sign up by Sunday April 19th (tomorrow) at midnight!
Winners will be posted on Monday by noon.

Thanks for visiting, I hope you had a lovely time!
