Okay, I'm early this week! So, you've got a little extra time on Mag 28. I've been playing with the templates today. Hope you like Maggie's new look!
Twirly and whirly!
Love the new look. And the prompt. Hey, you're fist! You beat the speed demons!
the new template looks wonderful...and i love that pic willow...
HI Willow, love the new look,I am really early this week, think it worked like therapy for me, lol, it typed itself, my one a bit lighter this week. Thanks for the great prompt.
Ooh... got an old one, but I shall try to knock out something new!
Jeff, your "old" ones are marvelous.
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...
Love your new very swirly, twirly, girlie look!I posted a little haiku....
Well, hope it's not too girlie, because I don't really like "girlie"!
Nice prompt, Willow, and the new blog design is cool!
Love, Love, Love the new look.I am glad you are early I have been ready for days....I love my magpie moments to create.
Love the new look! Feels like fall!! Thanks for this great photo prompt. ;o)
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)
Mine's a bit of fluff this time. But I hope it's fun. The new look rrrrrocks, Willow. :-)
Like the new look. Mine's prose and a bit longer than usual, but kept coming at me as soon as the prompt came up. Elizabeth
love the new look - I will have to put on my thinking cap for this prompt.....bkm
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.....Rick
This template reminds me of the plater work in my childhood home. It was a creamy white on sky blue.
Duh! I must be more exhausted than I realize. I did mean to write PLASTER.
The blog looks wonderful! Love the intricate swirls on black! Very elegant!Hope you're ready to brave a quirky Magpie! And this one of mine is really quirky!
Nice new look to your blog Willow ... it's Moulin Rouge-ish ...very opulent!Will need to mull over the new Magpie...but I will give it a go! Have a great weekend :)
Love what you've done with the place! Loved the prompt, oh yes...loved it very much.
I really liked this prompt. Thankyou :)
Moulin Rouge-ish! I like that.
Just love the new look Willow....thanks for another great prompt! :-)
I got slap happy with this one Willow and just had to post 2 different prompts for this one...so I hope its okay if I did it from 2 of my blogs....cause I did...:-)By the way, I absolutely loved yours!
I like the new look! I am enjoying the Mapies - it is great fun. :-)
Magpie is lookin' good, Willow! Thanks for the interesting prompt...- Dina
My toe tapping exploit isHERE
This image is very intriguing.
i am stuck...
smart move by posting the prompt early...cheers!:)
Joining in for the first time - be gentle ;-)
I thought it was an elephant's trunk, drastically shortened, between two feet........But I decided to use it as a bathtub. LOL
most of us do not appreciate what we use, but very useful. but because it was small things, then we forget.
I apologize for posting an older piece, but it was perfect...
My first Magpie ... I really enjoyed it :O)
Phew! I hope I'm not too late. This is my effort for this week's prompt.
I'm new...my first attempt. I love this place!
fun! found this through ny friend, just me. Am new to this, hopefully I can work out the kinks.The poem is posted at "Almost Normal"
Wow, so many new Maggies this week! Welcome-welcome!!
I tried, I tried. But don't count on it being any good.
wowee...new look! I wanted to peek at what others had done, but following my rules- had to wait to read everyone's until I was posted! Thanks once again Willow!
Another entry in!
Moms of young children everywhere love this wonderful sight!I ended up with more of a memoir than fiction.
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.
I thought everyone would like having an extra day this week!
Magpie Tales looks rich and raven-ish. Lovely.
Really couldn't resist this one..what fun!!
delight pas de deux!Btw Willow, Your new look is luscious.rel
I've been absent for a while but am back with an excerpt from my second novel. (How could I resist?) Will try to get around to everyone... eventually.
Someone is ALL WET here! LOVE IT, Willow! Today i NEEDED this thing, believe ME!
Water shock you are likely to get if I have this right...
Willow - this picture is just fantastic…and i thought i'll play again this week...
well it seems the party is in full swing already. smiles. mine is up.
Mine's in...finally. You caught me off guard this week.
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.
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......rob
Looks good and cool pic. :)My poem is in...
I agree with everyone else - love the classic new blog design and this photo prompt is one of my favorites! My Magpie Tale is ready!
Love the nail polish!
nice new template!i;m up and running, see you soon
hope you'll like my prompt.. im late this time :D
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)http://niamhboyce.blogspot.com
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!
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.QMM
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.PG
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 :)
Well, Magpies of Willow Manor, I am justa newbie, drawn here by the Muse Friko,but I like a poetic or prose challenge, andthis workshop, this platform seems an aptone for me. Hope to join in on some ofother Willow challenges on this minglingof poetics and minds. It is ironic that Ipost at the last gasp on the last day.
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!!
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!
