I Have a Poppet!
So, the rest of my package for the Once Upon a Time Challenge arrived safely. Yay! I actually got it yesterday, but the batteries in my digital camera were dead. I wanted to take a picture of my poppet, and as you can see, the poppet is already doing book duty. I also found my good charger, so no batteries should not happen again. Anyways, the prize package is awesome, so my very ecstatic thanks to Carl for both hosting a challenge in a genre that I love, and then rewarding me for reading books in that genre. It was like Christmas!
In the first picture you can see my poppet on the Spectrum 13 book that I am still in love with. I cannot believe it took me 13 books to even find out it existed! (I have been 'browsing' back issues of it, but I know for sure I will be picking up Spectrum 14 when it comes out this fall.) He also sent along the key that is pictured. There is something fantasy-related to an old-fashioned key, isn't there... I'm not sure how to explain it but I understood as soon as I saw it.
I also did in fact reread The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I started a discussion of sorts over on Twisted Kingdom instead of rehashing the plot, I hope you will click over there and join in.
