Scavenger Hunt Sunday



Another warm and beautiful week, here in GA...and I 
was prepared for the hunt...

1.  Decay

(Oh, how I love my hydrangeas!  And, they are lovely until the end.)



2.  Group of 3

(3 of the super-cute magnets I won from Tara's challenge!)



3.  Kitchen

(The boys LOVE raw veggies.  And, I really liked the 
reflection on my granite.)

Photography love...

4.  Things that make you say, "Hmmm..."

(Tuesday afternoon Sam said, "There's a hole in the sky, Mom."  That made
me grab my camera...and then say, "Hmmm...")


5.  "Me" time!

(So, I have to be honest.  I get a lot of "me time".  And, this
was actually hard.  In the end, tho, I decided to go with the 
most "me" event ever.  In 1999, at 25-years old, I went to 
Europe by myself.  7 days in London and 5 days in Paris.
This was a souvenir that I still dearly love!)

Lovely shots Dina and you have to cherish that "there's a hole in the sky" one - what little cute things kids come out with. I love hydrangeas aswell - I just deadheaded mine this week.

What beautiful shots this week Dina :D I love the tour bus! I spent a semester of college in England. It was one of the BEST experiences ever!

Julie said...

I never knew decay could look so beautiful--love the hydrangea shot.

deb duty said...

Hydrangeas are one flower that looks good alive or dead! Love the souvenir photo. Sounds like a wonderful trip.

Shannon said...

What a fun hunt! The hydrangeas are gorgeous--one of my favorite flowers.

Neat magnets!

And I love my hydrangeas, too.

Melissa said...

All great shots but the last one gives me fond memories of living in London the summer of 2000 all by myself while there for work. That is one great souvenir you have there! P.S. Isn't Harrod's the best?

Tara said...

Great shots!! Going to London and Paris by yourself had to be an amazing experience!! That is awesome! I have never eaten at a restaurant alone.

Jessaca said...

Love the camera magnets!!! Great little momento to remember your fun time abroad.
Have a good one!!

Kat Sloma said...

Oh, I love those magnets, and I love how you arranged them in the shot! Perfect! I enjoyed all of your shots. (You will have to do more with that reflection in the granite!) Thanks for linking in to Exploring with a Camera this week.

Kathleen said...

What a fun "me" event!! I think my favorite of yours is the hydrangea shot - gorgeous! I would never have thought of them as being pretty when they aren't showing off their gorgeous blooms!

Linda R. said...

What great photos.. I just love your hydrangea shot.. And how wonderful that you got to go to Europe all by yourself.. How cool is that.. I would love to do that.. Hope you are enjoying your day!!!

Cecily R said...

Oooooo! I'm so jealous of your Me Time!! I say that, and then in the same breath remember that I am a wussy traveler and probably never go alone to Europe--even now. Still, it's very cool.

Your hydrangeas are even pretty in the end, I think. :)

Jan B said...

Love dried out hydrangeas, too. So vintage-y looking. Great shots!

Chrystal said...

Wonderful pictures. So jealous of your "me time."
