Today's theme is: exhaustion
My word today is: bibelot: [bib-loh] (noun) a small object of curiosity, beauty or rarity
It was finally the end of the week and I could barely keep my eyelids raised enough to see what George placed on the table. He lifted the lid of a small box, and the diminutive artifact inside baffled my eyes wide open. I wondered how George knew that only a trinket of this magnitude and pristine beauty could make my mouth water with desire and my imagination soar to unreachable heights.
“A bibelot of temptation I knew you could not resist,” George said.
I looked at him in horror. He’s found it. Not only does he own me, he now has my life’s blood in his hands!
This weekly word lovers and prompt writers blog hop goes like this:
1. Create a lovely blog post that links back to The Feather and The Rose blog - our host.
2. Pick an old word you want to save from extinction to feature in your blog post. It really must be an old word, not just a big one. We are trying to save lovely archaisms, not ugly giants (for example, "Dihydrogen Monoxide" is not an acceptable choice). Luciferous Logolepsy is a great database of lovely words if you're having trouble coming up with something on your own.
3. Provide a definition of your word. Use your word in a sentence (or even a short paragraph) vaguely related to the theme we have chosen this week. You may also add visual or musical interpretations of your word or your sentence. In fact, add anything that moves your creative spirit.
4. Add your post to the linky list below (sometimes I add it later in the day). Then hop to as many other blogs as you can in search of as many wonderful words as possible!
5. Use as many of the words as you can on the people in your life. Do leave us a note or add something to your own post to let us all know what wonderful old word you whipped out to befuddle your friends and relations.
