Scavenger Hunt Sunday - December 23, 2012

Welcome! - Won't you join me for the last Scavenger Hunt Sunday of 2012.
This weeks prompts:  Joy, Tangled, Silver, Guilty Pleasure and Angel.

Coleen wasn't able to get all of the prompts for this week but I am going to share the 2 that she did take pictures of first.

JOY:  She took a picture of our Christmas rug which we use as a wall hanging and then asked me to print the word "JOY" on the song book that the littlest snowman has.  She thinks they look so joyful and they make her smile with joy as well.  She hopes to do more SHS in 2013.

ANGEL: Her Sunday School teacher gave the kids Advent Calendars and this little Angel was one of the gifts from the calendar.  She worked very hard getting this picture to look exactly like she wanted it to.

Okay now here are my photos for the prompts:

JOY:  We spotted this among the many decorations in someone's yard the other night.
TANGLED:  - I decided to wear a certain pair of earring and a necklace to church this morning.  Unfortunately all I manged to wear were the earrings because this is what I found when I picked up the necklace.

Hubby worked patiently to get them untangled for me.  He must have spent about 1/2 hour working on getting all 4 necklaces untangled.  Wasn't that sweet!

Coleen picked out this Silver bird as her Christmas ornament to put on the tree this year.  I buy ornaments for her each year so she'll have a good collection by the time she grows up and has a home of her own.
GUILTY PLEASURE:  Okay I can't show you my real holiday guilty pleasure because if I made them they would be all gone by now.  I love Russian Tea Cake cookies but rarely make them because I can eat the entire batch all by myself!  Instead you get something else that is a real weakness of mine as far as resisting: Red Hot Cinnamon Taffy,  Yum!!!

ANGEL:  Spotted this one in another yard while out looking at Christmas lights. Snow added as it hasn't snowed here (yet).

Wishing everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS! - Thank you all for your wonderful comments this year and I wish peace, joy and love to you all.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday - December 16, 2012

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date...Scavenger Hunt Sunday that is.  - I almost forgot about posting. - Before I share the prompts and my photos I want to apologize to anyone who stopped by last week and left a comment and I didn't get around to commenting back.  I just couldn't swing commenting last week but hope to do better this week. 

The prompts this week are:  Sparkly, Door, Decorate, Stripes and A Few of My Favorite Things.

SPARKLY - This was an "accidental" shot taken yesterday as we decorated my mom's Christmas tree.  It's one of those blurry photo's but the unexpected Bokeh certainly is sparkly.

Wasn't sure about this one and then I thought the little door on my Christmas Cabin decoration would work.

This is something that we don't see much of around our house.  Hubby generally puts up the tree and puts on the lights but he doesn't do much of the decorating of the tree.  I buy ornaments each year for everyone so I tell him he has to at least put his own ornaments on the tree!

This little Gingerbread ornament looks so cute and that little candy cane striped scarf  and striped peppermint buttons are the perfect touch for holiday charm.


Ahhh...Christmas pillows and Sleeping cats...These are a few of my favorite things!

Don't forget to pop on over to Ashley's blog and check out the other participants.

Scaventer Hunt Sunday - December 9, 2012

Hi,  Yes for those wondering I'm still alive.  I've been absent from blogging for a couple of weeks now.  So much going on during the Christmas season that I just haven't had much time for blogging.  I've missed 2 weeks of Scavenger Hunt Sunday and decided this week I was going to participate if at all possible.  Some of my photo's might be a bit of a stretch for the prompts but I'm going with them anyway.

This weeks prompts were:  Season, Colorful, Weather, Silhouette and Calm.

SEASON: Tis the "season" for making and sending Christmas cards.  Part of the reason why I've been absent from the blog the last 2 weeks.  I've been making cards, 35 all different designs.  Still trying to get them mailed.


The lights between our house and my mom's make a colorful display in the neighborhood.


This sweet little squirrel braved the weather ( rain and a few snowflakes)today to eat some of the seeds and corn I put under the trees in our front parking strip.
SILHOUETTE:  Okay this one stumped me a little.  I think though my photo fits for the most part.

The trees in over the fence in our back yard look like silhouette's against the glorious sunset a few nights ago.


Same trees as above just at a different time of the day and a bit of a different grouping.  We had a lovely, calm looking day this week where the sun actually came out longer then a few minutes.  That had a calming effect on me and others longing for cheery looking skies instead of gloomy gray ones.

That's it for this week.  Be sure to stop by Ashley's blog and check out the other participants.  I hope to post again before Christmas and will try to get around to commenting on your blogs which I've also neglected to do so lately due to there just not being enough time in the day to do everything that I want to do or need to do.
