Building Walls

Well the Wonder Wall has begun. Took me long enough but last week was rather hectic. So far I have a lovely photo of Peggy's Inlet in Canada from Laughing Wolf, Thrifty's gorgeous little three year old looking giggly and sneezy in autumnal leaves, a lovely drawing from Ces extolling the virtues of blog friendship and the totally huggable Kahlerisms and Brethred who come as a pair naturally. Then there's Moon with a very dozy looking Thai elephant, TCL about to 'sandboard' down an enormous Dune, the lovely and lanky Ropi in his Palotas uniform, worn during a school traditional dance, Forge Light's gorgeous little girls in their Snowman jammies. Next to them Christopher at 'Just Write' has mad a philatelic offering of Croatian stamps. Drop down another level and there's a Zebra that AV photographed just for me during her recent trip to Kruger National Park, the lovely Nick from Nickhereandnow and his partner Jenny (with whom I am having lunch on Sunday - they're visiting Sydney from Belfast! Wahey!) The ever anonymous and paraphobic Miles McClagan from 'Jungs Programme Notes' dressed suspiciously as a glamorous tennis player (I worry about that man's gender confusion) and Stan the Man with a beached Sperm Whale "Your Beached Bro!" A little schematic from Rattie Mattie from the COIN Helldesk and kj's reward poem for being her 20,000th commenter! Oh and can you see a picture of Bimbimbie's Yulewing? A little Felt decoration that is now adorning my Christmas Tree! I'll have to take an updated pic because I forgot Quickie's contribution although one is definitely not for the wall! (Very handsome Brasilian dude but due to his being in da nude . .not suitable for the office but definitely easy on the eye! And Grannymar has also made an offering that I'm yet to put up on the wall. You don't have to have a blog . . just be a commenter or even a lurker. Email your bits to bainbridge1610 at the g spot.

As you can see, there's plenty of space and the idea's originator Megan from "All I Need is Everything" has yet to send me something . . So if you have a photograph of something funny, meaningful, close to your heart, kitch or cute, clean and personal send it over . . . Your smiling faces, gorgeous places and silly bits brighten my little corner of the workplace!


Click to enlarge and have a proper look!

I think it best not to give you anything of me.

That is all.

Grannymar said...

Enjoy building your wall!

Here in Norn Iron we are still trying to break down walls!:(

Ces said...

I love building walls around me especially walls of love and caring. Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. You are special.

Quickroute said...

I love this idea!
Good seeing some of the faces behind the blogs too

kj said...

baino, this is a terrific idea! i just loved looking at your wall so far: when i saw charlotte and iris, i stopped in my tracks and broke into a smile.

maybe i will add a photo in some way. i'm thinking. meanwhile, thanks for being you...

:)

I know work place cubicles can sometimes feel like a prison cell and are in dire need of personalising, but surely not with my gammy head?

I know, how about a pic of MY bare featureless prison cell.

Moon said...

Brilliant stuff .. and Jo Jo wasn't dopey !!!

Miles McClagan said...

Foxy Lolo is a hurdler mate, her ability with a tennis racquet isn't known, although, tbh, her ability as a hurdler aint that great, she hit the last hurdle at the Olympics and fell over!

Baino said...

Maxi I admit most of your 'material' is probably unsuitable for anything other than an under the counter brown paper bag but what about your avatar? Outwardly clean?

Really GM I thought that was all done and dusted. I'll print your offering out today.

True Ces, there are all types of walls and not all bad. I love glancing up at mine during the work day. Thanks for the pics.

Nice init Quickie. I was surprised actually. I thought people would send anonymous funny or interesting things but quite a few are prepared to be 'outed'.

Cute as buttons aren't they in their little snowman pyjamas! I wonder if they realise they're on a wall 12,000 miles away where Santa arrives on a sleigh led by six white boomers and wears a red bathing suit! How about your book cover?

Whatever tickles your fancy Jack . . or maybe an historical shot of the 'band'?

Moon I said 'dozey' as in having a snooze! She's extremely cute, I had a lot of trouble selecting from your pics frankly.

Doh! Miley .. shows what I know about sport! Haha . . but she's better looking than Yana Pittman!

Megan said...

You shall have something very soon! Thanks for reminding me!

It looks great so far!

Melissa said...

This is great, Baino! What a fun idea -- I will enjoy watching your wall grow. I bet Milady will be sending you something as soon as her computer is up and going again. Wow, what cute kids in the snowman jammis! ;D

Paddy Bloggit said...

I like your desktop Baino ... :-)

Baino said...

Ooh good . . make it quick, I finish up on Friday!

Haha . .well I hope so Melissa and yes, they are cute, as is Thrifty's little giggler!

Paddy, you're supposed to be looking at the Wonder Wall . .so where's your contribution then?

Bimbimbie said...

Such a great idea your bloggiewonderwall Baino ... great to see Yulewings resting awhile amongst some exotic lookers ;)

Annie Ha said...

shame on Megan. Shame, shame, shame. (We'll forget the part about how I haven't sent anything, either).
Shame, shame, I know your name... Megan!!

Baino said...

I stole it from Megan Bimbimbie and she is YET to provide a tidbit as is her rather smug sounding sister Annie Ha . . .Shame on you both ladies . .pull yer fingers out!

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Aw, I love your wonder wall - and so glad your zebra is up there keeping you company too! It's such a brill idea - I'd go for it, but I already have a big cork board covered in all sorts of stuff! And the wall is also covered in "stuff". Actually, come to think of it, I wouldn't have space to do this! :-)
I think your wall is just totally cool!

Baino said...

Cool isn't it? AV I've had a few new additions today which I'll wait until Friday to post (last day at work and all) So folks, get crackin'. Again, it doesn't have to be a photo of you, I respect the anonymity that many of you want to retain, just a little something that means something to you because you all mean 'something' to me! So where are you Beati? Bear? Ashleigh? Ernest? Debs? Babysis? Ebony? RyanIam? Maria? And you invisibles . . .please, a little something so that you complete meeeee . . .

conortje said...

As soon as I escape work I promise to find something to send you :-) Oh and say hi to Nick for me!

Baino said...

Yaya! Onya Conor! And I certainly will!

i beati said...

splendid looking Sandy

laughingwolf said...

what a great idea... glad i came up with it ;) lol

steph said...

I've not forgotten!

Well, I had actually but you've just given me the kick I need to get going on this.

Really enjoyed the wall, as it stands.
