Scavenger Hunt Sunday!

I saw this on one of my favorite blogs this morning and thought it was a really fun idea! I get so busy with Shaun and cleaning and everything else, that I feel like I haven't gotten to practice with the camera in a VERY long time, and this is a great way to remind myself to get creative. And since I loved the themes this week, I did a quick scan of my house to come up with some pictures to join in today...maybe not the most original or the best, but fairly decent for how long it took and hopefully in future weeks I can devote a bit more thought and be creative. Either way, I hope you enjoy.


I actually took this yesterday, not the greatest picture, but fitting...he was watching his own shadow as he rode his bike!!


When I first read this one, I immediately thought of this picture:

Or the one in my header...or one of the many I have like them. Living with an autistic toddler, we know a little something about repitition and patterns in this household and I am always finding something lined up- from trains to cars, signs to chicken nuggets. But while I love both pictures, I wanted to share something new and so I give you:

My favorite of my four new (okay, gently used) Vera Bradley bags. So many great patterns, I am now in love with them. (And I got a great deal, 4 bags and 1 wallet, rarely used for $40 total!)

Bright White:
This one was a tough one, but I finally decided to try for a photo of my son's Valentine balloon (from his best buddy). Festive! (Though I suppose it could be a lot brighter...and whiter!)

This one was a bit tough as well. When I thought of strength, I thought of one of my favorite bible verses, Philippians 4:13. This photo kind of represents part of why that verse means a lot to me. If you're interested, you can read my thoughts on that here!

I have a lot of warm colors in my house, so I had a lot of options here. But after going back and forth several times, I knew that this quilt was the best choice. This was made for my husband by his great grandma, so it has a lot of sentimental value for him. I love all the colors in it. It truly does have a lot of warmth to it!


  1. Woof!
    I love everything especially the toys, the bedspread and I hope Dad is safe wherever he is. Mine is safe beside me.

  2. Oh you've done a wonderful job and I'm so glad you've joined - it's a great way to respark your creativity...that's what it did for me at least. I love your first shot - so sweet.

  3. Awesome idea! I love all the photos. They are definitely so neat to look at. I love the white balloon with the red Valentines writing. Amazing.

  4. Great work! I think you were quite creative for all your shots... I especially love your shadow and warmth shots! =)

  5. I had to chuckle when I saw your Patterns shot. We get the same "scenes" around here almost every day. :)

    I love your quilt shot. :)

  6. Thank you for your sweet comment! I love your photos. The first one reminds me of Peter Pan!
