Nikki McDonald 8/14/2009 6:32:20 AM

Well the response to this entry is bringing some very warm and wonderful feelings to me -- thank you all so very much. I was worried that this version was too dark but maybe it's not :) I even got a couple of personal e-mails from friends who had commented here in the thread but wanted to make sure I knew they REALLY liked the image -- means a lot when that happens. One of those friends is Mel and she shared an original poem which she said I could share with you as I liked it so much.

As I Sat Upon My Day Bed
The Breeze Began to Blow
Chasing Away The Cobwebs
And Urging Me to Go

I like the idea that the outdoors is beckoning through that open window. Thanks, Mel. #7847411

Jayne Martin 8/16/2009 12:36:34 AM

Me again!! LOL One more question...The wallpaper..velvet? You know how I bought my parent's home -- that same pattern is in the master bathroom; it's very gauche, but I don't have the heart to rip it down!! black and gold velvet...The 70's called, they want their paper back.........LOL #7851791

Dianna Murphy 8/16/2009 11:43:18 AM

Thank you Marilyn, Jean, Rona, Randy, Phyllis and Chris -- and everyone else who has been so generous with their comments on this personal favorite. Yes, Chris, it did final again (I tried one last month and it did not so I know Finalist is not automatic on a resubmission).

Thank you all so very much for sharing my pleasure in this win with me. I don't get many favorites and this one had way more than any other image in my gallery so I knew it had broad appeal; that's the main reason I decided to give it another chance. I really have to share this win with everyone who has ever let me know -- in any way -- that they like the photo. And Michele, I have also had several 8x12's made for people and it does print up well. I'm sure I'll have one made for myself one of these days.
I'm smiling for sure :) #9105707
