It was hanging on the wall at our local antique mart. It was ten dollars. It was calling me. I’m quite certain it’s not actually an antique, but oh, how I love it. As soon as I saw it, my imagination took over and it seemed the perfect setting for a good story. And that was my plan…to post the picture, and spin a tale for you. But yesterday I got to thinking that it might actually be more fun to post the picture and let you do the storytelling. So here’s how it’s going to work:
Comment to this post and tell “the story” in five sentences or less. Study the picture and use your imagination. Next week, in one of my posts, I’ll repost each of your stories with a link to your blog (if you have one) and you’ll get the chance to vote for your favorite tale. The winning storyteller will be interviewed here within the next couple of weeks and will get the chance to tell us about her family, her home, her craftiness, her blog, her handmade goods, and the like. Sound good? Remember…no more than five sentences, (and I don’t mean run-on sentences) so make every word count! I’ll close this post for comments on Monday evening.
I’ll be busy updating “the regulars” and working on the second edition of Silhouette for Monday (which some of you will be appearing in) so I’ll only be posting over here tomorrow. Then I’ll be back here on Monday. Now let the storytelling begin!
