Week 52 Necklace Contest - One Full Year!

I can't believe we've been doing this together for a year already! Some of you have been entering each and every week - thank you. There have been some really fun necklaces created as a result of the clever sayings you are all submitting. Thank you.
I've decided the contest will go on.
Things here in the Two Dog Pond Sweatshop are already getting quite busy for the holidays, so some weeks you will have to be patient with me as it takes me longer to choose a winner when I'm, well, busy...
So ~ Here she is - this beautiful and contemplative woman in the forest is our contest image for the last week of Year One. You submit a saying, phrase, quote, word that you think would be perfect for the backside of this image. Snarky or Serious - you never know what's going to win! On or shortly after Friday morning a winner will be chosen by whomever is working in or visiting the Sweatshop. The winner will be awarded with a soldered glass pendant on a 24" ball chain.
It's been a great first year!

Waiting for my Knight in Shining Armor.

I'm not lonely ~ I'm peaceful.

Listening

Wise Old Owl

Sometimes the answer comes when we're quiet

Peace

Just Breathe

Even the trees rejoice!

Get away from it all!

Pining away the moments until he returns.

All dressed up and no where to go.

Be still and listen to your heart.

You don't have to blend in to be accepted....stand tall.

Stillness. Peace. Serenity.

Be still and know that God is God.

The groves were God's first Temples... (if it would fit, I would put the whole poem by Wm. Cullen Bryant on the back. But then you'd have a billboard and it'd be hard to wear without serious chiropractic repercussions.)

or -

Where is that Big Bad Wolf when you want him?

Hoping to meet the Big Bad Wolf

Hope waits for the Big Bad Wolf

I should've gotten that GPS after all.

(I am glad you are going to continue the contest, too. It is always fun to read people's ideas! I love this image.)

Mama K said...

This image makes me think of that old, old song, "I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood, I know I could always be good - to one who'll watch over me..." Remember that?

Looking for love in all the wrong places.

Once upon a time...

We'll always have Paris.

I'd ask you about love, but you'd probably quote me a sonnet.

Kiss me.

je t'aime.

Love begins with dreams.

patience is a virtue.

think what you know, and know what you think.

there's power in stillness.

waiting for eternity.

it's YOUR wedding day, embrace it.

when you are most lost, you are found.

Pan's Island said...

two roads diverged in a yellow wood and i, i took the one less travelled by

i met a traveller from an antique land

all that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream

do not go gentle into that good night

she walks in beauty like the night

i wandered lonely as a cloud

you dream in the green of your time

your memory is a row of sinking pines

*all of the above are lines from various poems :)
*p.s. love the image this week!

Shara said...

If a tree falls in the forest......
