Will you marry me, Mr Sam?

Today’s the day that tradition says women can make their wedding proposals, and if the guy refuses he has to buy her a silk gown!

The work dates back to 2014 but I only discovered it in 2020 – click here to see it in production

Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

  1. Cool mural. But.. isn´t it a tad unfair? If a womann says “no” does she has to give something?
    And can´t a woman ask every day, too. I know, not the point! Cool mural, very sweet.

      1. I read up a bit. In some areas the gift was twelve pairs of silk gloves so that the lady could cover her ringless fingers every month of the following year … In Germany, 29 February is only associated with bad luck (if you graft trees on this day, they will only carry every four years, marriages started on this day will not last, and leap years are said to be particularly cold … HA!) . I like the Mexican superstition that working on leap day brings nothing but bad luck. I’m going to be very lazy today!!
        That’s why I prepared my Six Words in advance: https://picturesimperfectblog.wordpress.com/2020/02/29/oh-how-the-mighty-have-fallen/
