back to regular blogging... I think

I have been busy outside the blogosphere! the prior post was meant to let you know I am alive yet away from the keyboard, thanks to those who visited and more so to those who left a comment!! Now it's time for Jientje's A Thousand words in Idioms. "The idea is to pick an idiom, or a saying, (even slang is allowed) and illustrate it with a picture. Each week we'll cover two letters of the alphabet". Here are my choices, pulled -again- from the archives (the first one with a bit of fun editing). Skipped last week's letters as I was away...yes, it's been a time of very erratic blogging!

Move mountains
If you would move mountains to do something, you would make any effort to achieve your aim. When people say that faith can move mountains, they mean that it can achieve a lot.

French Alps
Not my cup of tea
If something is not your cup of tea, you don't like it very much.


  1. These are excellent and the pictures are fantastic. Great work :)

  2. Oooh, but I like them!! They are truly MY cup of tea!! Well done Mar!! Both excellent pictures, I love the teacup, I've seen it before on your blog I think, but it's a great picture!

  3. The cup is one of my favorite pictures, it was taken early in Dec 2007 and intended as a Xmas header only, but I keep using it :)

  4. The second picture is soooo nice and a real original interpretation. Of course mountains are mountains as you have seen on my blog, lol !

    I finished now to sort out all my pictures (1118) and get slowly updated in blogworld !

    PS Heute wollte ich per email meckern dass ich nichts mehr von Dir gehört habe und dachte Du wärest krank oder so was !

  5. There you go bringing to mind one of my FAVORITE songs! *sings* When I call on Jesus, mountains are gonna falllllllllllll... He'll move heaven and earth to come rescue me when I callllllllll Thanks! I LOVE that! And your cup o' tea ... with that beautiful little ornament... it just melts my heart!

  6. Magnificent photos to go along with the idioms! Have a wonderful day :)

  7. The first photo is fantastic... Wow - heavenly! Where was that taken exactly? That's what I miss the most about being so close to the Alps.. Scenes like that... I'm taken back of course! :)

  8. ps - any chance on emailing me? I've got a question for you.

  9. glad that you're back and love your pictures.

  10. I love the photo of the Alps. Such beautiful scenery to match your idiom!

  11. I enjoy what you come up with for the idioms so much. Great shots and post.

  12. Hi Mar,
    I give you the most elegant shot award for your idioms this week. These are wonderful illustrations of your idiom choices. The mountain shot is gorgeous. You and Gattina looked at them differently.
    Your tea shot is an elegant image!

  13. Love the Alpen! Sounds now I will visit the mountains of Finland since Anaïs is with Kalle, the finnish boy!!

  14. Stunning shots...paired with your idiom choices

    The mountains are glorious.

    The shot of the cup of Tea is very artful.

    Nice work!

  15. The first one we even have in Norway:
    Thoughts can Move Mountains

    The second one.
    It's not my Table

    Very similar.

  16. Beautiful pictures for a couple of great idioms. I love the Alps.

  17. Absolutely wonderful photos to describe your two idioms. You are always so creative.

    Take care.
