Happy Blog Anniversary! I am new to Magpie Tales, I am here by way of Angie Muresan's blog and decided that I wanted to join in on the fun! I love this - it really gets my writing juices flowing! :o) I am looking forward to writing many more tales!
Whoo-hoo!Love the house. : )My wv is boolia.How fitting.
Welcome, Girl! Looking forward to enjoying your Magpie Tales!
It's a house that reminded me of another house, perfect for this week's Magpie.
Happy Anniversary! I enjoy this exercise very much. Darling little house.
Hurrah for blog anniversaries! This is my first time participating in Magpie Tales, and I'm very excited.I wish I lived in this house :)
My first time too, love the photo prompts.
Emily and Christine, welcome to Magpie!
First timer here too, excellent timing I suppose with the anniversary! (congrats!)
It's a beautiful scene. Congratulations on a whole year!
Wow, so many new Maggies this week! Welcome, Sarah!
Got this one right off - the idea at least. great image, I love the green painted brick and the chimney that needs tuck-pointing - I failed to bring these elements into it - but it is there for others and I may expand on the three verses as of yet.
My first time to play, also. Magpie Tales are popping on the blogs I read regularly, so I thought I'd join in. Happy Blogaversary, Magpie Tales. -- and many more!
One year chained to my computer.Thanks alot, Amelia.
Happy Blogaversary! :-)I love Magpie tales and am glad to be here again the week. Susannah :-)
A whole year! Its almost my Blogversary too - must have been something in the air a year ago!

Dear Tess,Can't we have an Anniversary Ball? I am blue from reading and writing too many folktales.
Happy Aniversary.Really enjoy it here Tess.
Congrats to you Tess for this terrific blog..always a challenge!
Happy Blogoversary! I wrote something quite dark, but interesting for you all. I hope you like it!I aldo have a twitter, so follow my username (MsMatsui)!
Sort of on prompt, i.e. house, but season and location shifted. Sorry, Tess - it's a beautiful picture! And Happy Birthday to the Magpie!
Doesn't time fly when you're having fun?! :)
Looks like my home town.
This time for Magpie I have written a 55-fiction
Not sure why, but this turned limerick-y on me. Hope you all enjoy. It was rather fun to write...
Phil, I was at a loss over "Amelia" until I read your brilliant post. :)
Happy Blogoversary! I've been having a great time with your photos! They're beautiful and thought provoking. Thanks so much!http://lolamousedroppings.blogspot.com/2011/02/theres-something.html
Congratulations! Tess. I've been on vacation in Tucson and have missed my bloggy buddies. Attended the GEM Show and brought back lots of goodies to play with. Love your photo for this one. So many thoughts hit me when I saw it, but this time it was a male essence that won out. I'm looking forward to reading everyone's offerings. I've missed you guys.
Tess - thank you so much for such a great prompt! And Happy Blogoversary!
Happy blogging everyone!
Happy birthday to you!Happy birthday to you!Happy birthday dear Magpieee!Happy birthday to you!And many more...
I actually found this Magpie very difficult. too many choices and none of them sprang to mind.
For me this is my all time favorite prompt for the past (almost) year. I have lived in so many houses just like that one. The charms of houses like this can not be beat. LOVED IT! thank you
This was an easy one for me. Based on a real person from my childhood. Great prompt.
Count me in, Tess.
Congratulations! Many many more
My magpie was prompted by your paean to Edna dearest, finding my own feelings about Charles Bukowski related to your feelings about her. Sometimes the image itself is less prompt than your poetry.
For this one, I apologize to Mr.Schwarzenegger . . and . . . and . . . lots of other folk.
Congratulations on a year of Tales. You've created a good thing here, Willow. I still feel a bit 'new girlish' but am enjoying the adventure.
Congratulations! So glad Magpie tales are still flying!
Mines up!!! Hey ... can you remove my number 35 entry? I have the wrong URL on it!!! Congratulations Magpie!!!!
Happy Anniversary!!!I love the colors in this photo.
Tess,This one was accruing over three sheets of draft. Bits and pieces that didn't cohere until now. It managed to discharge itself, for which I owe M.T. its prompt!Trulyfool
And may I also offer felicitations upon the Most Glorious Aniversary of Magpie!I do so love to play along!
Our post is up. Oh, are we evil, or was it that photo that made us think of Thomas Kincaid that brought on our posting? Either way, it was fun and a great prompt
what a potpourri of colorful details, tess, to contrast the sleepy season. happy blog anniversary!
Another interesting Magpie. And Many Happy Returns.
I loved this one. And would like this little house! As always your prompts are very special! And congratulations on your year!
Mine is a story this time.
I wrote about not knowing what she saw. The she being who lived within this small cute house. No one knew her world.
Happy Blogaversy...thank you for the challenges and for all your wonderful photography!!!
Happy anniversary! My house is finished.
Oh boy I have a lot of Magpie reading to do this week. Had to share a thought. Wouldn't it be great if Magpie Tales could be published or made into a book for its anniversary? I would love to have a copy of that. The snow is falling right now and I have to say it really is beautiful. I still hate the cold but the white stuff is gorgeous!
Thanks for the prompt. Images like this are delightful to write around.
That's very good to hear! Congrats!
Congrats on your 52nd week of blogging!
this is a wonderful photo--and what a lovely house too. Is that from your neck of the woods?
Happy Anniversary Willow - it has been great being a part of this adventure with you and all the other fabulous writers.I struggled with this one a bit... but I am finally up.
Yaaayyy... HAPPY MAG-Anniversary, Tess!! For me, this has been a joyride thus far, and I hope to keep riding it for a long long time to come!! Best wishes to you, my friend...
'I will mark which must be mine....' is my submission...Congratulations, Tess, on your anniversary here. It's a remarkable achievement!
A pause.Name of poem and also of this week's process. I had to pause and ponder this little green house.
Happy blogiversary! Not sure if I will do this Mag--maybe!

I love how Elaine expressed celebratory first blogoversary wishes: "Happy 1st Year of Inspiration" because you are such an inspired and inspiring writer and photographer, and have in turn inspired so many others. Excuse me for gushing, but Magpie Tales means so much to me!
Keep on blogging. Happy Anniversary!! Thank you so much for bringing writers together with these wonderful picture prompts.
On such a ordinary photo I tackle the monster
Thanks, everbody! Magpie Tales is a success because of your lovely creative spirit. xx
