My Innaugural Wombat Friday

Some of you may already know about the Wombat Friday sensation that is sweeping the circle of Pre-Raphaelite bloggers of whom I'm fond.  It started when Stephanie Pina of the Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood posted a photo of her wombat plushie on a Friday, and since then, numerous other dear friends who are respectable Pre-Raphaelite enthusiasts and scholars have bought wombat plushies and celebrated the end of the work week by photographing them in Pre-Raphaelite inspired ways.

If you wonder, why wombats? this wonderful blog by Kirsty Walker is a good primer.

All this to lead up to my first Wombat Friday entry:

I Cannot Paint You, But I Love You.

Your stuffed wombat is so adorable, and he (or she?) is posed perfectly. Lovely picture, too.

Adorkable! I need me a wombat to get in on this fun. Normally I use an orange octopus toy for amusing photos, but I don't see it being possible to disguise him as a wombat.

Now, where did you get the pewter-y looking statue? She's gorgeous!

Victorian Librarian, the statue used to be sold by Past Times catalog. It's VERY rare to see them come up on ebay..thankfully a friend from England was willing to help me bid and ship it to me! :)
