SPLICKETY LOVE 1.2 & WELCOME

 

Greetings all! I’m pleased to show you the cover for the latest Splickety Love 1.2 magazine! I’ve read quotes from the stories in this addition and I was thrilled and impressed! There was not even one that I didn’t like. In fact, I’m happy to announce that I also have a story published in this magazine. The name of my short story is called Welcome. Here is the quote the editors shared on FB and Pinterest!

 

I’ve prayed for Christian media for years and now I’m excited to be a part of it! If you happen to desire to download a copy from Splickety magazine you may do so at http://splicketymagazine.com/subscribe/
Or
If you can order a hard copy—like old fashioned me—I would love for you to return and leave a comment about how you liked the Splickety experience!
Splickety * Splickety Love * Havoc
Are the magazines which are available for you….

Fairy Tales, fairy tales, and nursery rhymes galore...But what if there were tales with angel’s wings and wisdom born of holiness; as well as tales with moral fiber and intrigue that would demand courage? Okay you have convinced me—let’s do it Penzers! I will lead a teaching inspired not only by Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, Red Riding Hood, and Beauty and the Beast, but also from the vibrant, moral integrity and adventures found in the crisp pages of the Bible.

Prompt – Peek inside some childhood books and peruse a few of your favorite stories. Then bravely write one of your own.  Some of the Fairy Tales I found were only two pages long.  Let us aim for that length.  Or, if you prefer nursery rhymes and only need one page that is fine also.

Disclaimer: Warning you may end up loving to write!

Visit a local shop and bring your coffee or cappuccino with you.

Let us know if you’re attending so that we can save a seat just for you.

If you have questions or concerns leave a comment.

God’s blessings upon you as you write for His glory!

MAGNOLIA MANOR BED & BREAKFAST INN -- WILLIAMSBURG, VA



After my sister and I left the superb elegance of Monticello, Virginia we drove almost another two hours to a charming bed-and-breakfast called Magnolia Manor in Williamsburg, Virginia. With the Garmin as our navigator, we had no difficulty finding our bed-and-breakfast at the corner of Richmond Road and Dillard. We had driven all day, so both of us were weary and eager to relax in the comfort of our room.

We entered through the back door and we were immediately impressed by the charming d├ęcor. A fireplace rested to our right and an elongated table stretched out before us. A doorway opened to our left, which led into a public living room. There was another fireplace and cozy couches and refreshments of coffee, cookies, and water available to those visiting. Also, books lounged in bookcases for those thirsty of mind. We then followed the steps to our room, which was called the Gardenia Suite.
As we pushed open the door and could not have been more pleased!
I just experienced a victory sweet reader! Yes, I figured out how to get a photo from my email to the photo file, so that I could apply it to this blog post! If you knew me, you would realize what a grand victory that is indeed! Originally, I had planned to point you to the WEB  page where you could see the fireplace photo displayed. Magnolia Manor's webpage. http://www.magnoliamanorwmbg.com/



 

The bed was  huge and enviable since it was the type you hope to find at the end of a weary journey.   We've never experienced a more comfortable mattress on a vacation. There was an actual stepstool which could be used to climb onto that tall mattress and when we spied it we laughed out loud! Truth be told we both agreed that if we had only stayed in these rooms for the duration it would have been a very pleasant visit indeed!

Our host prepared wonderful breakfasts and all the visitors sat together at the long table in the dinning area. Each morning we met and  conversed with new visitors. People from California, New York, West Virginia, Virginia and maybe a couple of other locations also seemed quite happy with their rooms and care.

If I were asked if I would ever revisit the Magnolia Manor Bed and Breakfast Inn in Williamsburg, VA I would heartily agree!
