Scavenger Hunt Sunday



Sam's been sick in bed all week, so I couldn't venture out for
this week's hunt.  I hate to use an archived photo, but I didn't
have a choice for #4...


1.  High Key

(I've had my Peace Lily for many years and I still love her!)


2.  Bedroom

(We have a selection of photos from past travels displayed on one wall.)


3.  Something Tiny

(Luke LOVES tiny toys...Squinkies, erasers, marbles...and
these 1-inch plastic animals.)

MellowYellowBadge



4.  Off in the distance...

(A replica of a Civil War site not far from our home.
September 2010)





5.  Stripes

(Max has a lot of strips PLUS a spotted belly.  Gorgeous fellow!)

I love your high key shot! I understood what I needed to do for High Key, but I just didn't feel like I was getting it just right. I'm sorry to hear you have someone sick in the family. It's never fun. I hope everyone gets healthy and well in no time!

Poor thing. I hope Sam feels better soon.

Haha, I love your interpretation for stripes --good one!! I love that you have photos up on your wall. I need to do more of that. :)

Great Scavenger Hunt, as usual! I love the travel photos on your wall...perfect for dreaming yourself away, when needed ;D Your 'distance' shot is awesome (what a cool place to live close to!), and Max is a handsome boy (stripes and spots, how cool! ...would love to see that sweet kitty belly some time :D)
