Wordless Wednesday Trickiness

For my fiftieth Wordless Wednesday, I had a little fun. Or let's say that London blogging buddy Tinsie and I had a little fun.

You see, somewhere along the line, we figured out that we were Wordless Wednesday-ing at exactly the same pace. At one point, she got a little behind -- but at my urging she posted a few extras to catch up.

The idea was to do something special for our 50th.

Well, neither of us came up with any extravaganza of an idea, but this is what ended up happening:

I scoured Tinsie's WWs for a photo that I especially liked -- in this case, it was one that quite literally called out my name -- and posted it as mine.

Of course, she did the same. And no one noticed a thing.

If you have a few minutes, do check out Tinsie's blog "Thoughts in a Nutshell" -- especially "Slaving Away?" her brilliant recent post about being laid off. She is a true eternal optimist.

PS: As I post this, the hyperlinks to Tinsie's blog don't seem to be working right. I'm not sure why. If you access the blog through my own blog And So Forth, (in the sidebar under "Friends From Afar") though, everything works well. I hope this problem is cleared up by the time anyone reads this!

Thank you for showcasing one of my fave WW photos! I really enjoyed doing the WW50 post and hope we do something similar for WW100 :-)

P.S. I went by the salvage yard today where I took the photo - there's no sign of Betty Boop, but the other lady's still there!

I did think that a Betty Boop was a strange thing to be on sale at a French vide grenier ... which is what I assumed the shot was of! Lots of assuming going on eh? ;o)

Well, you never know. I thought it looked like it could be in France. I didn't think Tinsie's photo (of mine, or my husband's to be more exact) could have easily been in London, though.

Tinsie, that's funny to know you went there recently! Also to know where it was taken -- I never knew that. Can you be more specific? Someplace near your flat?

Tinsie said...

Yep, it's a salvage yard near my home. It's an amazing place and sells some totally outrageous items - a life size camel statue is their latest pièce de résistance.

I go past it a couple of times a week, but I'm usually on a bus. Yesterday I decided to walk to a different post office, which is how I went by and noticed the other lady was still there :-)

p.s. I think you are fabulous and have something for you to prove it! Right here.
