Just a Pretty Face


Just a Pretty Face


“Do you really like it?” she shyly waned. Biting back irritation, she tired of this cat and mouse game. He hadn’t hired her for design advice as much as he’d hired her to accompany him to luncheons and dinners. These older men were all the same. Deep pockets, lonely, and looking for a pretty face to accompany him around town and parade in society.

Companionship was a service she could provide. Coupled with her high hourly rate, she’d happily redesign his home in an updated version of the past; designs his wife, and likely mother before, had loved so well.

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use – Links provided 🙂
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I’ll try to read them all, but I can’t post your submission in the Weekly Windup if you haven’t posted before the end of the weekend but I’ll do my best to catch ’em all!
  5. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions 🙂

  1. Old men and new models. I enjoyed this picture and even searched the internet looking for suppliers -none. So either the stoneware is no longer manufactured or else has not reached antique status yet.
    In your story I am not sure which character fares the best, the lonely rich man or the expensive companion chic. It is a strange world indeed.
