Jientje from Heaven Is in Belgium, the creator of this meme, writes: "As long as people have been around, they have tried to communicate with each other. As a means of getting the message across as clearly as possible, idioms and sayings have found their way into our language. Now, because "a picture paints a thousand words", I thought it would be nice to make this a new photo challenge. The idea is to choose an idiom, or a saying, ( even slang is allowed) and illustrate it with a picture. Each week we'll cover two letters of the alphabet, okay?"

Here we go!

W is for Waiting in the wings

"If someone is waiting in the wings, or in the wings, they are in the background, but nearby, ready to act on short notice." (source)

X is for X-Factor

"The unknown factor or the unexplainable thing which adds a certain value to that object, element or a person." (source)

    Awwww!!! BOTH OF THEM!!!
    That first one made my heart melt, SO PRETTY!!! I read that one on the idiom site, and I remember thinking, how in the world could you depict this, but you did a marvelous job with it! And the last one is just oo cute, definitely an X factor!

  2. These are awesome!! I love the babies on Mom, soooo sweet, and the one of the dog is priceless too. She even looks like she's totally okay with wearing the wig. Must happen a lot, lol.

    I came by last week and saw your post though got distracted before I commented. It was also a fabulous post.

    Excellent my friend. Love the W. It is so cute and so is your X. We both did the same thing and I must say yours is a lot better :)

  4. These were Great Idioms Carleen, Waiting in the Wings could almost go with Thom's Bus Wenches. (Bad one)
