Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Golly another long absence....but one plum full of family and travel time, all bound together with photographs. It has been a very good few weeks. 


To get back in the swing of things, I thought I would start with Ashley Sisk's, Scavenger Hunt Sunday.   When I first read her "challenge" words I silently thought, "not sure."  I should have had a bit more confidence. I just had to mentally step "outside" the box a bit to illustrate today's five words.


Simple:

Visiting Chicago, we stopped at an Ace Hardware Store where we used to do a great deal of shopping.
Lined up outside like rows of rainbow colored icy-pops were plastic chairs. 
Simple chair. Simple line. Simple color.

Grain:


Golden bursts of grain.

Transportation:


In the last month we have moved about on:
airplanes, cars, wagons and carriages. But most reliable of all are feet!   

Bubbles:


Charleston, SC has an amazing fountain for children and adults alike to splash and dance about....more like a roller coaster with nozzle strength spray.....this was fun!

Stitch:


There was a time when my Bernina sewing machine and I were inseparable. Those years are now long gone. But I still fancy extraordinary stitchery like these costumes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.  

Gosh feels great to be back......hope you enjoy these simple photos from simple moments.

Heart to Heart: have you ever wanted to relax in a lavender colored chair, or run in a sky high spray of water?

  7. Welcome back! You've been missed.
    Whenever I see those chairs in a store, I want one in every color! They're so cheery, and surprisingly comfortable to sit in. I love "grain" and "bubbles" and the two-toned toes in "transportation". Nice set altogether!
