When I lived in Moline, IL I visited the studio of a local sculptor, Isabell Bloom, one day with a friend. This cat was not to be resisted, from it's shiny eyes to it's whimsical smile.

Here's my contribution. A bird that not only is but seems to find himself too fancifull. Wat does it is the strange fringe like thing growing up from its beak... totally useless but fascinating Then, just before that an orange... uhm, watchamacallit, the BIG, round eyes, the colours, the scalp of a balding man... and the total posture... you can't get more fanciful, funny or extravagant in birdland Photo taken in August 2005 at Avifauna, a Dutch birdpark.

Happy Birthday Cheryl. On a whim, I decided to completely blow apart the rules and submit a collection this time . But it is all on the same theme, and I hope the amusement it generates will make up for it:

For seven years, daughter Gilly and I co-existed with remarkable good humour in the same household. This was a gentle hint I left for her, suggesting she bear her share of dish-washing. She took it in good part!



And here's a very recent, disgustingly twee pic of my son's new boxer pup. He's in disgrace for chewing a Red Hot Chilli Peppers cd. And, by golly, he knows it!

I guess this topic was a challenging one, as there were fewer participants!

I don't have specific comments this week, except to say that I do like all the concepts of whimsy that were presented, they definitely all fit the topic.

Yeah, fewer participants indeed Come on people, take the challenge!

AnnMarie, I love the little dragon and the fact it has a flower in its mouth!

As usual there's a little anecdote with one of Ligras' photo's. I always enjoy both

I'll try to contribute... but I have to wait until the husband comes home
You see it's HIS computer.
And when ours died we had all our files etc backed up on a disc. but I'm not sure how to extract only certain things.(i.e my pics from my camera)
And he has all sorts of nifty programs and such he hasn't shown me how to use etc.
SOOOOO I'm not touching anything until he can show me.

The plus side is today is the only day in the week we have evening/nights free as tomorrow is his only day off in the week.(Have I mentioned he has a very crappy schedule *sigh*)

Oh and do I need to *officially* join this group?

What is more whimsical than a clown and a child?
