Q is for Quirky

quirk·y
[kwur-kee]
–adjective,quirk·i·er, quirk·i·est.
having or full of quirks.

If I take pictures through windows of weird books ...

Ah yes … The one word that my Mom uses to describe me … her “Quirky” child …
I guess if I had just one word to describe myself I would also choose quirky …

and dead flowers ...

So Mom, I concur … just as long as you mean it in the fanciful, whimsical way … and not the odd, eccentric or idiosyncratic kinda way …

and become part of the art installation ...

And yes, I am being rather quiet with my post today … short, sweet (well kinda) … Signing off this week as quintessential “Quirky Jo” …aka the real McMe…

does that make me quirky?

This post has been brought to by the Letter Q and the Alphabe-Thursday meme at Jenny Matlock's blog. Stop on by there and check out all of the other Q entries!

Quirky run in my DNA. It looks like it is in yours too.

I love quirky! Never boring, and usually loads of fun. Great choice for Q! Kathy

I'm sure your mom meant quirky in the most nicest possible way. That's a lot better than being boring LOL.

Nothing wrong with being quirky! I would rather be quirky than boring!

Tina said...

Quirky is great! As the line in "Runaway Bride" goes, "There's quirky weird, and then there's quirky mysterious." I think you're the best kind of quirky! Nice post!

Jackie said...

Quirky people keeps life interesting, and fun. Nothing wrong with it..Ah, the last picture shows the "quirkiness" touch too :-)

Anna said...

Maybe your Mother used the word "quirky" when she really meant "original", "special", "having a strong and independent train of thought".
Blessings,
Anna

Hi Jo,

Thanks for stopping by. Cute post. It reminds me of being more mindful of what I say to my kids sometimes. Sometimes I will say things that are meant as fun but I can see in their eyes that I touched a raw nerve without doing it on purpose.

Thanks for stopping by and yes, the "naughty" side of me wants to make all kinds of holes in the walls just to annoy him! After all, there should be some spontaniety in the world right:)

From one quirky person to another!

Your blog is beautiful!! I love the background...thank you for your sweet comments. You have helped me learn since becoming your friend! I have also been described as quirky...but not to my face:) I think it means that we do what WE like to do and we don't worry if it fits into everyone's else's idea of what to do. We have a unique perpective on the world and ourselves...Am I close? I think you are a very special lady and I look forward to more posts!!

Birgit said...

Quirky is a great way to be. When I think of quirky I think of someone who is fun, and outgoing and willing to do something a little silly to bring joy into others lives.

Quirky - unique, interesting, interested, unpredictable (in a good way!) and refreshing!

Its ok to be yourself. I need to do it more often myself. Wanted to also tell you I love the layout of you and your mother in the post below.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
I had someone describe my second son as quirky last night, and I took it as a compliment.
So should you!

mub said...

Nothing wrong with quirky! I'd rather that than be dull ;) I like taking pictures of strange things through the windows too. I love the name of that book you snapped!

H said...

Quirky pictures are good. From time to time, I like to take photos from odd angles :)
