  4. HI Willow, love the new look,

  7. Dear Willow,
    LOVE the new look.

    I am afraid, this magpie ruled me. I kept thinking bliss, but my fingers typed something I did not like very much.

    The more I wanted to steer away, the more stubborn the poem got and finally, the poem won...

  9. Well, hope it's not too girlie, because I don't really like "girlie"!

  13. I wrote a simple poem which is not easy for me, lol. I hope you enjoy. I could not link directly to the post so the correct post is entitled, "Me Time".

    Thanks,

    Kristie (just me)

  17. Nice look. I wouldn't mind this for efficientagony. Problem is that I use color on the text and the standard templates screw that up.....

  18. This template reminds me of the plater work in my childhood home. It was a creamy white on sky blue.

  40. Moms of young children everywhere love this wonderful sight!

    I ended up with more of a memoir than fiction.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I got caught out by you posting early, Willow. I tend to look for you on Thursday evenings and then have a mad rush to produce something instantly. Still, I had a go, and what I've posted is very close to reality on many occasions.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I thought everyone would like having an extra day this week!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  52. So many posts, so many points of view. I'll never be able to read them all.

    I wanted to again join the party then slink away awaiting Willow's next prompt.

    Bernice again had a dance through my brain. She's stealing my time.

    Thanks Willow. Always interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  53. The new look is good, but the prior look blended your header more seamlessly -- but I understand the need to change things occasionally... your Magpie Tales continues to offer excellent inspiration Willow...

  58. Apologies to anyone clicking my link - It seems to go to a religious webpage - I've tried twice to remedy it - very confused - hope its not permanent! Niamh ( Words A Day)

  59. Niamh, I tried replacing your links in Mr. Linky to see if that helped, but still get the strange religious site. I'm not sure how to tell you to fix it!

  60. Love the new look. Don't know what happened to my link up. I sure messed it up. I liked this prompt and it looks like a whole lot of folks did.

  61. I'm coming in a little late, but about par for the course for me. Lots of fun here.

    I guess I'm in my 'dark period', but I'm still Prayer Girl.

  62. This Magpie was awesome!!! And although I was totally short of ideas when I downloaded the image, I ended up writing whatever I did in a matter of 45 minutes or so!!! The more I looked at the image, the more IT penetrated my mind :)

    Here is what I came up with... Enjoy it, while I begin my Magpie reading expedition :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Well, Magpies of Willow Manor, I am just
    a newbie, drawn here by the Muse Friko,
    but I like a poetic or prose challenge, and
    this workshop, this platform seems an apt
    one for me. Hope to join in on some of
    other Willow challenges on this mingling
    of poetics and minds. It is ironic that I
    post at the last gasp on the last day.

  64. I really got a kick out of so many of you thinking the faucet looked like a weird snout!! I'll never look at it the same way again!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I am sorry I am late my site was done and the spicket does look like a snout LOL! But it made for a great prompt!
