Scavenger Hunt Sunday




1. Vintage

Only a few years before she died at age 101, my grandma wrapped up enough little spoons from her collection to give one to every grandchild for Christmas.  She didn't choose who would get which.  I got this one with a little angel.  So sweet.

2. Word or Quote

I love the quote on this calendar page to go with the painting by Debi Hron.  The whole thing is so filled with hope.  These record-breaking warm days have made me feel even more that way than I normally do.

3. Nature's Own

We went to the zoo today, along with a zillion other people enjoying the summer-like weather.  
This lynx was sitting in perfect light.


4. People

I have been taking tons of pictures of other people lately for the yearbook and basketball.  
I thought I'd photograph my three favorites for this one!


5. Photographer's Choice

Bethany made a scarf out of old t-shirts today--
a project begun in her recycled art class after school.
I couldn't resist this shot.  She's my rainbow girl.

I don't think I've ever seen a lynx - great capture.

That is great lighting in the lynx photo, and I think your philosophy in the quote at the top of your blog is very true...

I love your vintage spoon, and wonderful captures of both the Lynx and your rainbow daughter.
