Woodwork Wednesday

There seems to be something of a tradition of alliterative blogging customs; the Nablopomo people have suggested 'Wordless Weekends', so that people doing the daily blogging marathon might have a small respite from their wordsmithing and just post pictures instead.  Since I might in fact be more likely to try to string a few possibly worthwhile words together (no promises mind) at weekends than other times, and since signing up officially at the site is about as much commitment to joining a group activity as I'm prepared to make, I'm not inclined to opt for 'Wordless Weekends'.  I have, however, noticed that I do have a number of what I regard as interesting photographs of things made from wood, which I have not hitherto been able to find a time and place to post, so I have decided to institute a 'Woodwork Wednesday' here on this blog.

Anyone else can follow suit if they wish, of course, though I never saw myself as a trailblazer or anything.  You might  wish to do your own thing along the same lines: 'Textile Tuesday', for example, or 'Fresh Fruit Friday' - the fruit bowl is often a good source of inspiration I find, and it is often replenished at the end of the week - or what about 'Mugshot Monday' where you could post scans of old passport photos of yourself? Perhaps one could give one's jaded readers a break and have a 'Thankless Thursday', when no one would be obliged to leave comments or even visit... no, perhaps not.

For now, though I'll just stick with the woodwork.  So to start, here are three pictures of lovely things made from wood which I saw in Cambridge.

I really like the door in the 3rd picture. I would like to suggest Ice Cream Tuesday. The story behind that is an old friend of mine was making extra money while at university teaching English as a 2nd Language. She taught the food services group and went into a class to cover days of the week and asked what day it was. It's Ice Cream Tuesday. After a little thought she remembered that the previous class the covered deserts including Ice Cream Sundae.

What's in the second pic? i love it! I had tried some 'themes' like wordless, habits, love-inspired but had not stuck to them constantly..I decided to do whatever I want since I can't really comply to rules..hehe. I'll miss your words in the wordless posts I'm sure!

Thanks people.

Weekend Wednesday, now there's a thought...

Actually Ice Cream Sunday would be good, as I prefer puns really to alliteration, but it then I'd have to eat ice cream every week and it would be the same problem as with the cupcakes, I'd get too fat.

Hliza, they were some really nice polished wood bowls I saw on the market. I took a few photos on the market there. Yes, I agree that themes could a bit of a nuisance quite quickly. I'll only do this one for this month. The beauty of blogging should be to please ourselves I think. I like doing Naplopomo because I get a sense of achievement from fulfilling the challenge, and it uses stuff up!

Never mind all that wood, how about that blog label - Whimsy? It would cover just about everything I post. May I steal?

This alliteration thing could be catching. If decades, why not days of the week? My mind is buzzing with them. But I won't inflict them. Yet.

I've been thinking that I want some strings of silky shiny wooden beads. Do you think they exist? I can't seem to find any. I want to rub my cheek against those bowls
