  10. As that makes me think of Peter Pan, I've got another oldie!

    And, as usual, I'll see what I can cook up.

  11. I'm so jealous of all you wonderful writers who can see an image like this and have a story spring to mind. Maybe someday my fiction writing muse will awaken. Meanwhile, I do enjoy yours.

  16. Willow, I love this bust. Love it! Please tell me about it. You know, the posts I read took it as a horrified expression. It doesn't strike me that way. I don't know - she's obviously more than just surprised, but I love it somehow. I'd live with it and look at it every day if I could.

  17. This is my second magpie tale. It's fun and challenging at the same time. Thanks.

  18. Relyn, I bought this metal bust in an antique shop in Marion, Ohio, about 20 years ago for $15. Like you, I was drawn to her. I did some research and found that she was originally wired as an electric cigarette lighter, with the lighting mechanism in her mouth. I've always thought she looked as if she was singing.

  30. This message is for Inkblot - when I opened your blog, somehow my computer got into a loop, re-opening again and again - no amount of 'closing' stopped the loop. Now I'm afraid to open and read your post - maybe you want to check that out!
