whoa, that really long straw shot was awesome! well it still is

I didn't get anything for pink. If I had put up a tree I might have had a pink ornament, but I don't have any cool pink flamingo ornaments!

And that is a seriously long straw!

Only you would have pickles and flamingos on your tree. :)

Wonderful photos as always, Tink. Love the perspective on that straw and I'm curious about the pickle ornament origin but the provided link goes to the WWC page.

Dang, that's an impressive amount of smoke! The long straw is excellent.

Great shots! Mine are up, I can just imagine the smoke, my dad has done something similar...ugh.

Oops. The pickle link has been fixed. Good catch Hilary!

The same thing happened over at the Parker's house on TBS yesterday. Ralphie's father wasn't too happy about that. ;)

Wonderful pics... pickles and flamingoes in the Christmas tree - that's a new one for me ;)

Your friend didn't burn the whole place down, I hope? That's a lot of smoke!

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

(My pics are up!)

I'm partial of course to the pink flamingo. But I love the beaded ball picture. It's quite excellent in a visual/spatial sense.

Lovin the pink flamingo!!

Merry Christmas all!

Mine are up, too.

your flamingo rocks, and that fireplace shot is funny.

I am sure after you all had cpr you thought it was funny too ;)

The bead ball looks nice and gosh! that's a lot of smoke

I love you flaming-o. And we have one of those pickles on our tree, too.

I played!

I love the flamingo ornament!
I have had that fireplace problem too, good luck to your friend in getting rid of the smoke smell. Vinegar and cinnamon boiled on the stove with water helps some.

Ahhh I am back in action. Thanks to Jay who informed me that I had not missed the WWC. Holidays can get us hectic eh?? :)

Well anyways, I love the ornaments of course, and the lighting is very nice on this week's photos Tink!! Mine are not my most "artsy" but alas I am present and accounted for :D

Excellent photos. My wife's uncle has the same pickle. I will miss looking for it this year. My mom did the same thing to my house with the flue many years ago. Cute dog. :) Mine are posted.

Excellent picutres. I cannot believe all that smoke! Your pups are adorable and your tree certainly looks festive. I cannot wait for your Christmas update! My photos are up too.

I am going to post mine late. Look for it tomorrow!

I love that really long straw pic! Hopefully that Fireplace Mishap didn't cause any damage.

 
At 26 December, 2007, Blogger Alex said...

We do the pickle thing in my family, too!! Whee!

I love the photo game, Tink, I really do. I don't know why I don't participate. Probably because I'm lame. Maybe one of these weeks.

Happy New Year!

I have a lobster ornament on my tree :)

Lucy is such a cutie - can I swap her for one of my kitty clan?

 
At 27 December, 2007, Blogger Nettie said...

what is with you and Newt and the pink flamingo's?

Lucy is just adorable.
