Well, this is a first! I don’t normally participate in this type of challenge, nor do I accept awards, mainly because they involve others, and that makes me uncomfortable.

My personal challenge is to see how many posts I can link to the Advent challenges before Christmas eventually arrives!
Last Saturday I visited Harewood House with my eldest daughter Victoria. Harewood is the home of the Earl and Countess of Harewood and for the second year running the house is open to the public for the Christmas period. This year the theme is Christmas Dreams 1920s style.
Week three of Artisan’s new Friday Follies at his site Proscenium.
My own entry was found during a visit to a 15th-century inn just half an hour’s drive from my home in Yorkshire, England.
Hobgoblins, with their dark colored shaggy hair, are thought to be one of the most benign forms of goblin, closely related to brownies. They are small tricksters that love to mess with human lives through direct influence or theft when they are really in a mood to pull practical jokes. ~mysticfiles
