Scavenger Hunt Sunday

 Sunday, November 20, 2011

The themes for this week's Scavenger Hunt Sunday are: Mainly One Color, Around the House, Reflection, Writing, and Water.

I had intended on driving somewhere cool to try to get these shots.  But today's the day LA decided to pour! I'm glad one of the themes was "Around the House" because with the rain, ALL these shots ended up being taken Around the House.  And it is very challenging to find interesting things to take pictures of in my messy apartment! But here's what I came up with...


Mainly One Color
I keep all the books on my shelf organized my color.  So here's the "blue" shelf! :)

Around the House
Love having my morning coffee in my Starbucks mug.

Reflection
I love how this vase reflects light in different colors.  I actually got this vase at an estate sale at Lloyd Bridges' house after his wife passed away.  I like to think she yelled at Jeff and Beau as kids when they were running around the house to not break this vase :)

Writing
I have a framed print in my living room that has the entire play of Hamlet printed on one page.  My brother got it for me in high school when I was going through my Shakespeare phase and I still love it.

Water
This one was easy because, like I said, its pouring rain outside!

Hope you guys are getting some sunshine wherever you are! :)

Northern CA is getting rain today too. I love your Shakespeare print, and the great story about the vase. And that you organize your books by color, what a neat idea!

I love the books photo! I see you have Lovely Bones, I thought it was an interesting book, I enjoyed it. :)

No it's raing here too. Nice series

Nice job getting them all inside the house! I love the photo of the vase and the history behind it. Good idea to organize books by color - when I'm looking for a favorite book, I know exactly what the cover looks like, I just can't remember where I put it!

The rain on the window is fabulous- it's rare for us to have rain too.

Absolutely LOVE your mainly one color& reflection photos!

That water shot is beautiful as is the vase. I laugh at the organizing of books...you must remember them by their color-not author or title. Great idea.

Love your photos and your commentary...they both have a fun edge to them. Hope the rain ends soon in SoCal.

YOu must truly have the heart of an artist...you organize your books by color. I LOVE that!

It rained here for most of the day, too. I didn't mind, though. :)

Lovely shots!!

It was gray and ugly here and it's just getting started. I'm in trouble I'm already in desperate need of sunshine. The Hamlet play printout..I would LOVE to have one. What an awesome brother you must have ;)

that vase is very unique! sounds like a yarn-of-a-story! ha! ha! can almost visualize that happening! oh - maybe it did? nice set of photos.
it rained in Sunnyvale & was raining when I arrived home in Pismo Beach... actually enjoyed the rain following me down Hwy 101.

Great job girl - I love reflection.

No rain here in the midwest, but no sun either. Nice mix of pictures! Usually I end up taking a lot of my pictures for the hunt around the house, too.
