Wondrous Words Wednesday

May 27, 2020

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love.  Feel free to get creative!   If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!

I found this word in THE PLAIN JANES by Cecil Castellucci.

1. vernissage – “Will you send me an invitation to the vernissage?”

A vernissage is a private viewing of paintings before public exhibition.

    Hi Kathy,
    Probably not a book I will be adding to my list, however I really like the cover art and the word is amazing, I had no idea there was a specific word for this event. Now, if I ever get the opportunity to mix in such illustrious circles, I won’t let myself down by just calling it a ‘viewing’! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing and hosting and I hope that all is okay with you.

    That’s a new word for me.

    I’ve never received an invitation like that, although I did receive an invitation to an artist’s public viewing (I wonder if there is a word for that…probably) and I did attend.

    That would be no.

    Hi,
    I’ve read the word, but never knew what
    it meant…have a great day!

    I don’t remember ever hearing/seeing that word before. Sounds like it would be a neat thing to do.

    There is a reason I didn’t know that word. Too fancy 😉

    Seems like a word I’ve run into before, but I wouldn’t have been able to come up with the definition.

    Hi,
    New word for me…thanks for sharing.

    Hi there Kathy! I saw this meme on Yvonne’s page over at Fiction Books and I think it’s wonderful.

    Do you mind if we use it until you open the linky again?

    Here’s a link to my post if you want to have a peek Wondrous Words Wednesday
