Flowers: Rock, Paper, Scissors

A flower post of a different kind. Not that the real thing ever disappoints, but just for today, I’ll let art imitate nature πŸ˜‰

Ceramic flowers: key hooks

A strip of pre-historic wallpaper. My friend has just bought a flat that hasn't been re-decorated since the 1950's. At least...!

OK... not quite scissors... but it's metal.

OK… not quite scissors… but it’s metal, and part of a lampshade. I’ve played around with the colours, evidently.

    Love the little colourful key hooks!

    (just so you know, I didn’t click twice to read and comment on your post. everything is done in the new stupid reader by WP) Do you have any idea if this counted as a view on your stats?

      Hmmm… if you just did it now, then it didn’t count it.

      However, I’ve noticed something interesting re. stats. Since last Friday (Nov 1st), my search engine hits have plummeted. I used to get 50-60 a day from that source alone, mainly for my food/beverage related posts (who drinks the most beer, etc), and since then it’s been in single figures. I have no idea how this stuff works… has Google changed its algorithms????

        I don’t think it’s Google. I’m 100% sure it’s the new WordPress Reader, “they say” that if someone clicks on your post title in the reader it’s counted as a view/stat. HOwever, I’ve been following along in the forum on this subject matter and there’s a lot of people who say it doesn’t count. I think we’ve just proved them wrong. They want people to stay in the reader, on their page as it would count as more views for WordPress. My stats have drastically changed, by mid morning I would have well over 150 hits, today at noon I was sitting at 60. WTF?

        From my observations, a click in the reader (e.g. on the “like” button) didn’t seem to count as a view, even before the “upgrade”. I could be wrong. But I don’t think I am.
        Aw, it’s all very disappointing 😦

        I hear you. I’m not at that point yet… I’m still exploring where I want to go with this blogging stuff and what I want to be writing about… I also very much enjoy the WP community.

    Love the second photo. I’m actually really into old school wallpaper. Sadly, no flower wallpaper here. Just depressing beige patterns.

      LOL, you little eccentric, you πŸ˜‰
      We had hideous flower wallpaper (enormous big orange and yellow flowers) when I was a kid. I can still see it every time I close my eyes…

    Jesus woman. I started following you because you’re Lady of the Cakes. CAKES. Not bloody wallpaper, flowers or skies. Seriously. (OK, I’m a bit boozed but the point is still valid πŸ˜‰ )
