I love playing with gifs. I can't remember where I found this picture, but I'm using it on my website...

I can't get the gif to show up, Candy. Can you try again?

Dang! It was showing up last night. If it messes up again, I'll post it elsewhere.

Oh, doesn't that look inviting! I saw this at the Writers' Rendezvous, which I presume is your own website? Did you take this picture yourself?

Erm, no. I... nicked it. Yeah. Naughty ol' me. Yep, that's mine. I'm hoping to get some writers to join me. Thanks for the compliment.

Thanks. I do love animating images, though.

A couple of things about the nicking: if someone puts a message beside their image that says "Ask before you use," I will ask, and will attribute. If a person hides their images and only shows them to friends, I'll respect their wish not to have their image used elsewhere.

Anything just left casually lying around, though -- I'm taking it. I suppose that makes me an e-klepto or something!

Hey, fair's fair! Finders keepers and all that! Now the next time I hear someone use the word "eclectic" I'll be thinking "e-klepto"! :lmao:

I think you should! What are those funny definitions that come around now and then - you could add:
E-kleptic - someone with an irrational urge to steal a variety of stylish electronic gifs in the absence of an economic motive
(I got the dictionary definitions of "kleptomaniac" and "eclectic" and altered them) :lol:

Well... the image was static when I found it. I made the alterations myself. You can tell it began life as a JPEG if you look closely at the fireguard area, near the bottom. And there's a bit on the wine bottle top that winks.

I have nicked the odd animated gif, but I mostly make the animations myself.

I had to dig for a while to find the original. Here it is:

Wow, clever you! I hadn't noticed the bit on the wine bottle - nice touch to have it pick up the reflection of the moving flames! It's such a nice setting. Right now we're getting snow and it's hovering around freezing. This isn't a real common occurrence on the Island so we're all feeling very sorry for ourselves, even though the rest of the country is getting slammed hard by Old Man Winter! I'd love to just sit by a nice fire with my Hubby and a good bottle of wine!

We don't get it so bad over here -- the Gulf Stream keeps the worst of it off. We do get a lot of rain, though.

I presume you've got some way of keeping the house warm. We don't have radiators in the spare room so I'm using s small oil-filled heater on a low setting. The room is small, so as long as the door is kept shut, it's pretty warm in here.
