Cowart's Common Room
Avatar resolution

I'm know it's early and I'm supposed to be writing Christmas cards but I'm already thinking of my New Year's Resolutions and one of them definitely will be to create an avatar (why do I want to transpose that word so much?). To help me in my thinking over the next 11 months, and before I finally get round to it, my question is why did you choose yours?

Blossomcottage's Avatar Mine is Doris Mc Squirter my JRT who was so terrified of the horses, one day when she was being very pathetic I put her on Ralph our Welsh Cob, and she though she was the Bee's Knee's and asked each time she came into the yard to go up their by putting her paws on his front legs. That is my Avatar Doris and Ralph I just love the picture.

Exmoorjane's Avatar Don't ask.....they will all wince! It took forever.....and a few changes of heart. I suppose because my dog, Asbo, has become well-known on PC and he's a JTR (I like the sort of perky self-assurance of my avatar - and would like to emulate it!).

Patsy's Avatar Patsy is my alter ego... Wink

Doris McSquirter, Blossom? ...Just love it...I'll never be able to look at a JRT with a straight face again..Laughing

Blossomcottage's Avatar Yep named after Norris McWhirter of Guinness Book of record fame... we said she would get in the book for peeing on the carpet a record number of times as a puppy!!!

Sometimes, first thing in the morning mainly, I look a bit like you @themill but yours is taken. Love the Doris McSquirter Blossom and all of the animals, think I'm being drawn towards an animal, but which one,? Obviously can't have a JRT Jane or a salmon Bradan, definitely not going with a hippo or an elephant. Shame Patsy's taken and I can't play bridge ARose, maybe something to do with snap, I can do that? Hmmm...

Cait's Avatar I can't say I chose it as an avatar as such, I just nicked it from my blog avatar type thingy. It's a pic of a local wood. I don't know what I would choose to represent me - a witch I thinkSmile

Preseli Mags's Avatar I like sunflowers! Although it was once Timmy from Shaun the Sheep. I may yet change it. I'm fickle. I love Blossom's avatar. I've got a picture somewhere of a chicken on my late thoroghbred, but it's not nearly so cute.

Withy Brook's Avatar When I finally got brave enough to try an avatar I had recently taken a picture of a handsome lily in my garden. I do NOT think it represents me in purity etc Laughing but I am a gardener and I was proud of it.Embarassed

Westerwitch's Avatar Ah I live in an area called Wester Lix - and I am considered a witch - or was when I used to do Reflexology.

TIGGYWINKLE's Avatar I chose my mine to match my name, Tiggywinkle, which in turn I chose, because I love Beatrix Potter, and my favourite character was Mrs. Tiggywinkle.

Lampworkbeader's Avatar I make beads so I chose....some beads. nothing like being original is there?

Camilla's Avatar I chose mine because I adore animals and children, dog in the picture is a JRT which we have with Daisy Boo, the picture is entitled Suspense of which I like a bit of now and then.!

Faith's Avatar I keep white garden doves but I try as I might I couldnt reduce one of my own pics for the avator so had to pinch one from the internet. When you are thinking about what to have, consider what it will look like reduced. Of the ones above mine in this post, I like Preseli Mags' best because it stands out so well.

Thanks everyone, it's now a work in progress!Very Happy

Milla's Avatar I came across that poor hunched crone and thought, ME! It was part of a small animation which ended in said hunched crone collapsed, bleeding, on the keyboard but the machine just saved the pre-watershed version.
