Down an Alleyway...



...the other day, Eldest and Middle happened upon a wretched soul.



(small, faraway, tinny voice, shouting in capital letters)
‘HELP ME, PLEASE! I’VE HAD A GHASTLY WEEK, I’M DRAINED AND DOWNTRODDEN AND FEELING OH, SO CRUSHED...’

So, Eldest and Middle carefully cradled Mr W Soul in soothing arms, took him to our home and placed him ever so gently in the recycling bin where he could therapise with the tomato and chickpea tins, commiserate with the squished milk containers and have a leisurely catch up over the newspapers. Don’t even bother not believing me.

‘Finding faces’ started here with the loveliest personalities here and here and even another lot here. They’re a bit of an ongoing obsession chez Myrtle & Eunice. And if you like voices with your inanimate object faces, the excellent Claire from Gugaw put me on to this little number.

PS. Curly Pops, this post is for you. This is almost (and certainly in the last six months) the shortest post I have written. I am chuffed to bits.

PPS. Except I’ve gone and ruined it with all the footnoting and postscripting about.

You crack me up - I so love all your footnoting and postscripting about!

I think I need to start opening up my eyes a little more to start seeing what's really out there... just like eldest and middle.

That is one sad looking fellow indeed. Glad he was rescued and taken somewhere he felt at home.

Hilarious!

Those chickpea tins, besides being a comforting shoulder to cry on, always have the best gossip.

too cute! poor sad can - I am wondering though how much coke has in common with chickpeas and tomatoes...

Mel said...

I reckon he's gasping to try and reach that ciggy that's just of his reach, having no arms and all. I swear I have been on the look out for faces ever since your first faces find but I CAN NOT FIND ANY! Perhaps I'm looking but not really "seeing"?!

crzylady said...

he certainly looks like the squishing took him totally by surprise. One would think they would prepare them before they leave the factory

Little Ted Canvas said...

That's so funny, I've since started seeing little faces everywhere!

zofia said...

poor little tinnie soul.
Hope he's feeling better now ;)

Madeline said...

I love your faces. You have a knack for photographing them well too. When I've attempted to photograph faces I've seen in things it didn't go so well.

Cath @ chunkychooky said...

I really just thought this was just me. I see faces in everything. I am shocked their is a virtual movement going on. Must join.

Cathy {Tinniegirl} said...

I love the way you see the world. You have such a unique perspective. It's fabulous.

flowerpress said...

Love this, and your other faces. Must start looking closer!

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

Ever since you started posting found faces i've been seeing them everywhere!

Lola Nova said...

Ooh, I love finding faces, it's a great game with the fam and I. Have you been caught by the principal? How would one explain that?

ecoMILF said...

Great entertainment with my cup of tea and biscuit. I really felt sympathy for the poor little guy! xo m.

Happydacks said...

What a great idea 'Finding faces’ is. I will be looking for some too.
P.S. Having been having great fun making your Chickummyjig chooks lately - thankyou! xx

You can see he's had it hard all his life. Probably bullied. Poor soul. At least he's good at cleaning toilets and stovetops. So Kootoyoo says.
