This is a picture of the snapping turtle pelvis which I decorated to make the dragon mask for Splendor House. He makes me grin with his composite self. Headress from China, eyes from Greece, beard & tongue from Egypt, glass ears and bell teeth from India and the turtle shell from Georgia. He's quite a funny little guy.
I wrote a 7 Chapter story entitled Splendor House. I have posted every other day starting April 1 and I will post Chapter 7 the end of the tale on April 13th. I have had some interesting comments and guesses as to how the mystery will end. I also have had some "disgruntled" (but not really) readers who did not like the cliff hangers and the break between chapters.
I must admit, I don't think I will do that again. I was as anxious as many of the readers. I can't stand the waiting either. So I came to the conclusion that I should use yet another of my blogs Bell, Book and Candledrippings as the location that I will place all my "novellas", serials and articles that I have written, and also for anymore challenges or blog parties that come my way. So beginning on May 1, I will launch Bell Book and Candledrippings and all of my written work will be there for you to read (complete stories even). The gypsy Cybella's tale as well as the other fantasy pieces will be included.
Now to the giveaway part of this post. On April 8th on Pagan Culture, Ms. Magaly offered my altered book "prieres squelette" - Skeleton Prayers (here's the link to that post). The inspiration for this altered book was the image of a skeleton praying....what would he/she ask for? I think the cover answers that for me. The skeleton would pray for life, blood, essence, not just bones. I used Graphics Fairy's picture frame on this piece.
If you follow the link you can see not only my sponsor item but those of others. There are so many different kinds of offerings and I know you will love them. The drawings for all will be April 17th, I believe.
Happy Weekend, Smooches and Squoozes, Oma Linda
