Fun Monday - The Challenge


Whoo-hoo! I'm hosting Fun Monday this week!

Your assignment for Monday, 9/17 is this:

Brush off your interview skills. Talk to everyone who lives in your house. I want to know what their, and your, favorite piece of art is in your home. Photographs do not count. If there was a fire in your home, everyone would grab photographs, but what is the non-photographic piece of art you would grab on your way out - and why? (Edit: These don't have to be paintings - these can be wall hangings, statues, lumps of clay by your child, anything that is artistic expression of some kind EXCEPT photographs.)

EDIT: Lil Mouse Jill posted hers early because she's going to be busy this weekend. If you'd like a taste of Monday on Saturday, go visit. She's also requested that you participate in a poll she's taking when you go visit. I'm on my way, Lil Mouse!

A few brave people have already signed up, assignment unknown. If you'd like to join the party, leave a comment saying so and I'll add you to the list.

Lil Mouse Jill - Lisa (Lisa's Chaos) - Debs - Nikki - Lisa (The Food Snob) - AlisonWonderland - Kaytabug - The Ex - AmyW - My4Kids - Kitten - Dawn - Myanderings - JenniBoo - Bethany - SwampAngel - Dallas - Tiggerlane - Tracy - Wolfbaby - Arkansas Songbird - Min - Pamela - bs - Hootin' Anni - Susan - Karisma - Anglophile Football Fanatic - Karmyn R - Blue Momma - Karina - MJD - Tiger Lamb Girl - (33)

Count me in!

Lisa said...

I'm in, this sounds very different, good thinking!
(To everyone: anytime there's a need for a host for Fun Monday I will do it, I haven't done one yet!)

alisonwonderland said...

sign me up! (although i'll warn you right now that "art" to the people who live in my house is not likely to match any traditional definition.)

Kaytabug said...

I'll play...I may be the only one in my family to grab art on the way out though. Oh who am I kidding.. I have to say my photo albums will be taken first before any art...but I will still play...

The Ex said...

Totally in! What a great idea. :)

Amy W said...

I'm in...

my4kids said...

So I really don't have any art in my house that anyone really cares about. Can we use anything else in the house that may not be art? If so I'm totally in! I'm curious to see what the kids would get out.

remzkie said...

kitten said...

Hi! I know you don't know me. I met dawn http://coloursofdawn.wordpress.com/ at TDJ and I saw this fun Monday on her blog. I went to Nikki's blog and found out you were hosting this week. I would really like to join.
Thanks!
Kitten

Remzke - I'd love to add you, but your link doesn't go anywhere but to a "No Profile" page. If you have a blog, I need the link so that I can add you.

dawn said...

I don't am with My4kids. I will see what the kids would drag out and try to think if their is actually art in our home that we actually cherish. I am in.

Sayre said...

Ya'll know the rules... and that they're made to be broken - art is on my mind lately, so that's what I'm asking about, but you can bend the rules and take anything out of the fire you want to...

Myanderings said...

Bethany said...
