Well, Linnea came very, very close by saying it was a white appliance like a freezer or a washing machine, but ultimately Fancy Pants got it right. At 10pm, after taking about 20 photos and failing to get a clear shot, in utter frustration I slapped (okay, I didn't slap it, but you know, literary license) the bracelet on the range and to my surprise the photo came out just fine.
Okay, I have to admit, I asked this question off the cuff last night - I have a design ready, but I haven't actually made the little surprise for the winner yet! I'll post a photo in a couple days and get your details then, okay, FP?
Thanks for playing my little side game!! Remember, though, the drawing for the bracelet is still on until next Wednesday.
ps. Don't look too closely at the photo, please - we deep-fried tonight, and the range could really use a good scrub...
pps. I completely forgot - apparently, it's International Talk Like A Pirate Day today. Be sure to say "Arrr, you scurvy dog" to someone you love. Or something to that effect.
I am an intellectual property lawyer by training and have a background in English Renaissance literature. I love science fiction. I primarily watch Sesame Street these days and find myself humming "Pop Goes the Weasel" at odd moments (guess why). I can happily eat ice cream in the middle of winter when the wind chill is 20 below 0. I have been making beads and designing jewelry since 2007.
