top 10 pictures from the week

A little while back I said that I get pretty tired by the time Thursday rolls around and just want to post pretty pictures. I've mostly been taking them from books on my bookshelf...but, ever one to change my mind (surely not!) I've decided...for the moment at least...that Thursday will be devoted to posting pictures that I've seen over the past week on other sites. Pictures that have made me go aaaahhh....or oooooh....or on some occasions have rendered me speechless (no mean feat that one!). Not that I'm qualified to judge these things really, but does that matter? No. Didn't think so.

Naturally, as I only just thought of this yesterday, I haven't been putting aside jawdropping images all week (no, that would require organisation and forethought) so it's taken me a while to put this together, which kind of defeated the purpose. And I have no doubt that I've seen many pictures this week that should have made it to the list. But...as this is my first attempt you will, I'm sure, cut me some slack.  Next week though, I'll be stockpiling as I blog stalk...that's the plan anyway! Enjoy...

Thank you to all of these wonderful bloggy places and websites for giving me such tingles!

  24. What a great idea for your Thursday posts! I love that porch swing from Abby's blog and all the other images are lovely too.

  25. I think it is a great idea. Especially to take it from sites online like blogs. Because we can all look at a magazine. But we probably haven't seen it on a blog. Gives the blog more traffic. And we have new friends to read! (That's how I find friends for my Friday features. As I'm surfing the web and see that they're new, I label them as such and have a place to refer to come Thursday!)

  35. Hi there. I noticed your site title, "Blogger: A Tranquil Townhouse" doesn't really reflect the content of your web-site. When composing your site title, do you believe it's
    most beneficial to write it for Web optimization or for your viewers?
    This is one thing I've been battling with because I want great search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my website visitors.
