My word for “F” is Family.

My definition of Family is: People in your life who you may be related to by blood, or choice, and whom you generally agree to accept no matter what.

“E” for Exquisite

I have been learning many new things about “Letters” as I do my alphabet letters.

This is what I learned about the letter “E“:

The letter “E” is one of the most versatile letters in the English alphabet!  (See – we’ve already used it!)  It is the most commonly used letter in no less than eleven languages. “E” is derived from the Greek letter Epsilon, which was used for many of the same purposes as the letter that we use today. Due to the Great Vowel Shift—a mysterious change in pronunciation in the English language—the letter is pronounced in two varieties: long (such as in the word bee) and short (like in the word bell). Every educated English student must examine for etymology (that is, history) and exercise (that is, use)!

The word I chose for “E” is “Exquisite” meaning “Of extreme beauty” “Delicately beautiful” “Lavishly elegant and refined”

Would love to see what words you choose. Leve them down in the “Reply / Comments” area.

Happy Friday my friends! Great weekend to all!

The Alphabet Series


“A” Little Houses Series ~ Ink Drawing – © 2012 Dora Ficher

 “A” for Alyson

If you follow my Dora Ficher Art Page on Facebook you have probably seen some of the letters I’ve been creating with ink and pen which I then scann and finish up as a digital image.

I am working on a letter series and would love your comments. I will be making a book with all my letters and would like to have a name for each one. Each letter will have a specific name and a list of other words that start with that letter.

My 1st Series is called “Little houses Series”.

I will start from the beginning with the letter “A”. Remember: what I need from you is to leave me words that start with this letter in the comment section below. 

I named the 1st one “A” for Alyson.

Apart from the book, I will be offering these letters either individually in different sizes on paper, quilted fabric and…more later….Check in often to get the details.
