The “L” Word…

Pin It

Lfairy1…As in “LIKE” of course! Today’s the start of the drawing. But first!

I would like to thank the fairy that graced my porch last night. My dog Teddy has three barks: The Ballistic Bark when a stranger comes to my door, the Bark of Greeting when my sister Julie or Brother-in-law Scott come knocking, and lastly, the Something-Invisible-to-the-Human-Eye-is-Out-There Bark. These are the barks that I never check out, because when I do there’s nothing there. What is Teddy barking at? A leaf? A fairy?

No, I only look when his bark is Ballistic or Greeting, otherwise I would spend my days going up and down the stairs to see.

So a dainty and sneaky fairy put beautiful Fall treasures on my porch, right next to the door, and Teddy didn’t go Ballistic. Therefore I am SURE: FAIRIES!

THANK YOU, FAIRIES! What a fun surprise!

And now for The Contest:

The GOAL:Lmill

for the “Hazel Twigg” page on Facebook. We are slowly but surely gaining and currently at 81. Can we get to 150? YES!

The PRIZE:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A vintage cup and saucer from the 50’s FILLED with mini Cherry Mash. Why Cherry Mash? Because one thing Julie and I noticed as transplants to this fair state is that Iowans love Cherry Mash candy, and no wonder! Why, in 1918 it was the favorite candy in the whole country! Iowans are simply a loyal bunch!

Also attached to the handle is the very first printing of our “Hazel Twigg Original” tag with our official logo. The FIRST! Tied with vintage ribbon, because I’m all about vintage. The tea cup represents what the Hazel Twigg series is all about: a simpler time with simpler pleasures.

Don’t Say It!

LikeThe 1985 Oscars. Almost 30 years ago, and still I cringe. Sally Field, up for Best Actress for her role in Places in the Heart. She wins, and in her acceptance speech uttered those immortal words…

“You like me! You really like me!”

It was the recoil felt ’round the world.

I vow to never utter those words myself. And, yet! Could you, pretty please, go to Hazel Twigg on Facebook and “Like” me? I mean, really like me?

Like1See? DIFFERENT words! Not the exact ones!

I wish I could think of something clever to say so that you would chuckle in delight as you go to Facebook. “Oh, that Ruth!” you would say to yourself as you toddle on over and type into the search window. H-a-z-e-l-space-T-w-i-g-g, enter. LIKE!

I wish I could! But my mind, it is

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seriously. I came this close to writing another Haiku. Happy Tuesday!
