if i were...

I saw this post from She at the blog
 She may be the song that summer sings.

If I were a month. 
I'd be October.
Me in October 2006

If I were a scent. I'd be Japanese Cherry Blossom.

If I were an expression. I'd be a smile.
Photos taken with tripod, and self timer, when I was in another state,
at our old house, on the backyard patio.

If I were a pair of shoes.I'd be these Fringed Wedge Booties.
If I were a color.
I'd be midnight blue.

If I were a liquid. I'd be water.
What my guy saw,
 on his bike ride the other day.

If I were a flower. I'd be a daffodil.
An object my guy captured in photo.

If I were a fruit. 
I'd be a strawberry.

Strawberries remind me of my husband.

 To see my strawberry blog post in November 2010 look here.

My guy looked at the grove of trees.

If I were an object. I'd be a stained glass window.
My guy watched the sun set over the lake.

If I were a gemstone. 
I'd be an Opal.

It has many colors, depending on the light.
It's my birthstone.
It was my great grandmother's name.

Little me, with my great grandmother's boyfriend, and my great, grandma, Opal.

If I were the weather.
I'd be sunshine with a gentle breeze,
on an
Autumn day.

My husband captured the colors of the leaves.

If I were a car. I'd be an electric Mustang in blue,

(no, they don't make those yet, although some people are converting
 their Mustang vehicles into electric cars).

My art journal pages inspired by these art journal pages by Donna Downey.

If I were a taste. 
I'd be peppermint.

If I were a musical instrument.
I'd be a guitar.
She welcomed the sun.
After all the grey.

If I were a sound.
I'd be laughter from a baby.
from Wednesday September 19, 2012

If I were a song. I'd be Imagine by John Lennon.

To see Imagine art by or inspired by John Lennon
 post from March 2010, look here

Imagine by John Lennon

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

And the world will live as one


  1. wuwuw I'm loving this post, seems like a fun game to play, I already made my choices in my mind.. if I were a month, fruit, song and so on as you did.. though in liquids I think I'd be red wine definitely.
    And good thing you're not a fruit, 'cause I'd be allergic to you! Strawberries make my face turn like Hitch's ..not a pretty sight haha
    Anyway..thanks for the always awesome comments on my illustrations, I appreciate them so so much.. digging the journal page as usual :)
    take care october!

  2. I love that song! I really like this if I were... Idea. It was fun reading your answers :)


  3. very cool idea
    i might have to borrow it soon
    loved your items that you would be

  4. Your great grandma Opal looks a lot like my great grandma Mrytle.

  5. What interesting statements! Now you've got me thinking about which month, color, and flower I'd be. It's a totally different question than your favorite...

  6. hey, Teddi! I think it's one of your best posts ever. I really enjoyed reading it and I feel the same about many of those aspects you've pointed out. and gosh, how much I like the photos of you (taken in 2006) and also the photos taken by your guy. he's definitely good at it! such beautiful views!

  7. What for a lovely name, Opal! And I love the stone too!
    I'm amazed by the pictures your husband takes! The flower and the river? were just awesome!
    I love water, so I totally agree with the "liquid"! Also strawberry and Imagine! Do you know Seduberry? It's a strawberry in the shape of a heart!
    I loved this post, it's really beautiful! Because you have such a beautiful soul!

  8. you can tell a lot about your personality by these answers...i like this post!

  9. nice pictures of you, and yeah I would be a pair of fringe booties too!

  10. Now I hear "Imagine" in my head....

  11. I love your every post Teddi! It's always unique and very interesting! Beautiful photos as usual! ^◡^

  12. Aw yay!! Thanks for doing this, I loved your answers and pictures, I'm totally analysing you right now ;)))
    Imagine ALWAYS makes me cry <3 Xx

  13. This post is very thought-provoking. Does it make more sense to answer our favourites things for each category, or what seems to best suit us as a person. All I know is that if I were a month, I'd be September. You look really gorgeous in the photos with the orange jacket. They really captured your pretty smile.
