Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge: Week 18

When I was doing personal training, I had a lovely older couple as clients.  We would often walk for part of our time together and she shuddered every time she saw a lawn ornament (or at least when she saw most of them.)  I must admit I’m much of the same mind.  I hope I offend no one if I say that if you can’t see why these are oddball photos, I’m not going to attempt to explain.  🙂  These “beauties” were spotted in the windows of a lovely garden store in downtown Kansas City during a trip to the farmers market with friends.  Once we got past these guardians of the doors, the rest of the shop was not only normal, but beautifully old-fashioned and full of delights.

We’re now on week 18 of Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge.  Feel free to get your oddball photos and join the fun.

    well I agree – lawn ornaments are a very individual thing – and some are so – well – oddball indeed. nice post!!!

  2. Sandra says:

    The nicest lawn ornaments are, in my opinion, buttercups and daisies. 😉 These are really something else, Janet.

    I’m with Sandra on lawn ornaments…. 🙂

    I really like your odd balls!

  5. I’m with your client. 🙂 I can tolerate ‘animals’ in an outdoor scene but I don’t get the gnomes. They are scary little guys. LOL

  6. Dear Janet,

    Happy memories. 😀 I thought I’d go back down there and snag those biker gnomes. Don’t you think they’d look perfect guarding the doors of Jan’s man-shed? (Or not…maybe I just need more coffee or pain meds).



  7. Tis a bit funny isn’t it. Gnomes freak me out a little but suddenly they become a bit cool with kids and now I have 2 as he thinks they are magical elves. They may accidentally fall off the pot plant to their death, onto the concrete hopefully shattering into a billion pieces when the phase passes…

    ((( Shudder )))! 😀 Great examples Janet!

  9. Cee Neuner says:

    Such wonderful fun oddities. I really like your photos this week. 🙂

  10. A better class of garden gnome – goths? 🙂

  11. These definitely qualify as odd ball. 🙂

  12. The cow doesn’t seem to like the outfit….thus the disturbing vibes?

  13. hahaha … I don’t like lawn ornaments either but I can enjoy when someone else has them. If it fits the theme of the home I’m okay with it. I have a friend who lives on the beach and has a dolphin mailbox. I think that fits the lawn ornament category. : )
    The cow is adorable. Nice selection of odd ball pix’s.

    • Someone not too close to my house. 🙂 Yes, it depends what they are and mailboxes can be different. I say “can” rather than “are” because one that sticks out in my mind was an enormous golf ball!! :-/ To each their own.

    Quite the gnome party you have going on. Loved it!
