When the son is looking intently into an old dog dish,
one's eyebrows droop and furrow in concern...
one's head tilts in an attempt to understand...
one finally gives up in utter lack of knowledge
or even imagination
what are you doing with that old dog dish?"
"I'm looking at my new pets."
"Aren't they beautiful, Mommy?"
And the winner is:
The King's Daughter!
Congratulations, Anna, on winning this plaque and bird's nest with eggs
NOT the dog dish with slugs.
(Although, he'd think it was the better gift, for sure).
Thank you to all who entered.
Hopefully you will win next time!
