Tagline Roulette - Volume II, Edition 1 - "Paris"

I have a list of words, currently numbered at 161, 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.  As words get used, I cross them off the list, give the other words a chance, you know?  Well, it's a new year and we're starting over.  I've added a few new words and un-crossed the crossed out words.   

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 "Paris" which produced a collection of 6 pages and 203 listings.  

Originally, my target in this feature was to put together a collection of 10 images or so, but holding the line here at only "10 images" proved difficult, so I decided to 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 26 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!
