Pimping: My Girl Kate

Listen up.  Our wonderful Country Girl Kate is having another giveaway.  Get over there.  And vote for your favorite textured picture.  The contest ends on Thursday (2/26).  She's been on a texturitation mission.  And, yes, I have just decreed texturitation a word.  So there.  My favorite texturitized shot is Mr. and Mrs. Goldfinch on Valentine's Day:

And now that I have looked at it,
I think it might be Mr. and Mr. Goldfinch.
And that is a-okay in my book.
Go be who you are, and
go leave a comment.
What's your favorite shot?
Tell her Mental P sent you.
And may the best pimp win.
Have you noticed that I like to start sentences with the conjunction, "And"?
And what are you going to do about it?
I thought so.

Texturitation, you say? Qwah!

I was just going to say... Aren't those two males? Oh, who gives a hoot. They're pretty and I get a huge kick out of birds & their funny little personalities & quirks.

I love that word! Texturization. It conjers up such luscious layered thoughts. Think I'll go *texturate* now.

Living on the Spit said...

Yes, it is a word in a scientific sense, but not as of yet recognized by Webster's Dictionary...I hope they give you credit for it though.

If I ever need a pimp, I want you to be mine!

I have a texturiation handicap. I can't do it! I've tried and tried. It's easier to win one of Kate's photos. My pick is Daisy in Texture. It goes well with my print of A Whiter Shade of Pale. Or perhaps the Queen Anne Lace. Arggghhh! I can't choose!

Deb said...

Oh, we all are pimping...nasty girls!

Grandma J said...

I love that picture of the birdies. I have no idea what texturization or texturitation is but I do know I don't have those skills.

TSannie said...

The Rainbow Coalition....it's a good thing...even in the birdy world.

Joanie said...

Wow, I went and looked and they were all so great! Have a good night!

Kacey said...

I think it's a word too. Pay no attention to spellcheck... And I start a lot of sentences with and too.

Mary Lee said...

I thought only old people looked at birds until I got a feeder... now I love attracting all the birds to it. My favorite is the hummingbirds. Maybe I am old.

Thanks for linking to such beautiful photographs.

numberonesistah said...

She's my next spot! I'm blog-hopping now.

Oh! I just realized that is probably one way to tell we are getting old(er)! We blog-hop instead of bar-hop!

Deb said...

Hi ~ this is my first visit here and I had fun! I love making up words - it drives my husband crazy especially when I defend my word making abilities. I can't wait to throw texturitation into a sentence today! Enjoy your day!

I thought "texturitation" was something you did to your ceilings~never~mind~I'll just go leave a comment.

Daryl said...

AND so do I ..

asthmagirl said...

Loving the texture! And the boy birds!

big hair envy said...

I'm a big fan of the conjunction "And".

Pimping? I guess you had to take any job you could get THESE days...

Caution Flag said...

SO every semester, my students proudly announce that no sentence should ever begin with a conjunction. BUT I always correct them by saying, "Not so. You should just read my blog. I try to begin every paragraph with a conjunction." "AND we know that bloggers are always right." SO there.

Meg said...

Conjunction junction what's your function. Yeah, thought you would enjoy a little Schoolhouse Rock.

I love making up new words. I may adopt texturization.

Ellen said...

I will notify Noah Webster that you have created a new word.

Sassy said...

Cool word...love it! TEXTURITATION...it's a mouth full for sure...I will pop over and check it out...I love this photo...I could sit and watch birds all day!

noble pig said...

My fav is the daisy!

imom said...

I made my way over and left my vote for the Vestry Windows. Love that shot!

Camellia said...

and I love an and at the beginning because the end is never the end.

Debbie said...

I love the Mr & Mr and I headed over and voted for you :)

I loved her lighthouses too!

You sure have a way with words, my dear.

kim-d said...

I, too, am fond of starting sentences with "And." And occasionally "But." So I will not be doing anything about you doing the same thing. And I love the texturization and Mr. and Mr. Bird; it's beautemous.

Poutalicious said...

But I'll probably win and then I'll have to send it to you. OK. I'm there.

Country Girl said...

And maybe you're right. About the Mr. and Mr.
And maybe you've sent like a million people over to my blog.
And now I'm going to have to choose more than one winner.

Suz Broughton said...
