Tagline Roulette - Volume I, Edition 26 - "House"

I have a list of words, currently numbered at 146, and each week I go to an online random number generator to get...(Wait for it!)...a  randomly generated number! I use this number to point me to the tag word that I'll use to create a pool of images by Etsy POE Team members.  It is this pool from which I will select the images that will populate that week's feature.  It should be noted that the "tag word" in no way dictates a theme, it is merely part of the search criteria used to create the image pool.

This week our random word turned out to be "House" which produced a list of 7 pages and 274 listings.  

Originally, my target in this feature was to put together a collection of 10 images or so, but I've never been able to hold the line here at only "10 images", so I decided to lift the target number and just go with what I feel.  Ten images is now my minimum, and my maximum depends on the number of images in the pool and how I feel about things.  I don't want to feature so many images that folks might get bored looking at them, and once I start approaching 20 images, posting them starts to get to be a drag, so now my limit falls somewhere between "10" and "folks might get bored / this is getting to be a drag".

This week we ended up with a collection of 20 images.  Please take a look; I hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

Oh, and as always, please feel free to send me your word suggestions; the list is by no means limited to 146.

  2. Wonderful collection, Steve. Honored to be part of it.
    All are great but I'm particularly lovin "no right angles" and "5 crows"

  3. Wonderful theme this week. I too really love "no right angles" and Gary's photo, "Farm House" is a long time favorite. "What Sally Saw" by Amy is whimsical and just brings a smile to your face. There are so many great photos here I can't mention them all!
