sittin' there, lookin' pretty



a favorite online friend and writer extraordinaire, debi darlin' of texas, is having a little give-away today. she asked any willing souls to interpret the phrase~ "just sit there and look pretty" and post our vision online. in exchange she would add all names to a hat and give away an original painting of hers to one lucky sitting pretty participant.

a free painting? from a real live artist? baby, i'm in.

so here he is, my book gnome, sitting, reading and looking real darn pretty. i stacked him on some of my favorite books, on a blue painted chair (that's for you, debi!) in front of lace curtains.

say a prayer that my name jumps out of the hat.

if you'd like to see other visions of sitting pretty, click on debi's link and head to the side bar.

  9. Okay, I'm praying for you to win the painting. (And for everyone else too - what a wondrous afternoon I'm having in this realm of creativity!)

    Some of my favourite books are under that Gnome: A New Earth, Gifts From The Sea, A Return to Love, The Celestine Prophecy (not necessarily in that order).

    He's sitting Pretty AND Wise! Well done!!
