It just dawned on me that I had not included a link to the original “Word a week: Figure” post. I’m hoping you can/will join in the fun.
I could not choose between the two so I devised to use both.
There were a couple other figure(ines?) that I had at one time, but I’m not sure what happened to them. If they were here I would include them in this post as well. One was a small porcelain doll (which I called gladiola because she held gladiolas in her hand. She was a birthday present to me and gladiolas (as I understand) are the August flower. The other was a clown that, at one time, sat in a toy chair at my gma (Nonny’s) house. After she died I was given the choice of the clown or the chair. In my childish (stupid) youth, I chose the toy chair…. Thankfully, my father brought the clown home as well – something I would come to appreciate in later years. I only wish I knew where that clown was now.
The second figure was one hand made (if I am not mistaken), for my husbands parents.
