Scavenger Hunt Sunday Photo Challenge - June 26, 2011

Time for this week's scavenger hunt.

1. Windows/ Doors

My husband made this cabinet and used an old
window for a door.

2. Eyelashes

As a kid these kind of dolls fascinated me. I loved
how their eyes closed when they laid down and,
of course, they had eyelashes. Very low tech but
I am easily impressed.

3. Paint

The art table at the Kindergarten Field Trip.
Ready to paint.

4 Leaf Veins

When we stand under this tree, the veins
in the leaves are seen very clearly.

5. Faceless Portrait

My daughter and her dogs.

Mommy, please push me!

Scavenger Hunt Sunday Photo Challenge - June 12, 2011

Scavenger Hunt Time again

1. Long Exposure

This was a difficult one. This is the best I could do.

2. Shape

I found the shape of this combine(harvester) gear to be so interesting that I
took it out of the barn and am using it on my desk for a paperweight.

3. Green

Green trees, green lawn tractor, green grass.

4. Fruit

The only fruit I have on hand today - an apple.

5. Childhood Memory

These egg baskets used to be used everyday when I was
a kid to collect the eggs from the chicken coop. I remember
shooing the chickens off of the nest, gathering the eggs and
bringing them up to the house in these baskets. They now sit
on top of my desk hutch and are filled
with nothing but memories.
