Scavenger Hunt Sunday - Week 7

Today marks by 7th week in a row to post to Scavenger Hunt Sunday. This week's prompts have taken more imagination since I've stayed at home the last 4 days because of the ice and snow. I know, I'm a wimp, but I sure got a lot of housework done!

Last week I started my post with a picture that satisfied all 5 prompts. I accepted the challenge to do it again this week, so here goes!

Had I been anywhere other than where I stood, I would have missed the tiny punch bowl set that was nearly hidden in the shadow of the the silver Christmas tray. 

1. Where I Stood

This is where I stood to keep warm this week when the temperatures were in the single digits. I tried at least 20 times to take this picture with the flash on. It would never show the fire in the picture, so I finally resorted to taking it without the flash. The color appears distorted this way. Can anyone give me a hint about how to correct it? I'm using a Canon Rebel T3i.

2. Silver

My husband happily used this silver pie server to dip out a slice of this 'not so pretty' pie that I made to help him stave off the cold weather. It's not so pretty on the outside, but I've always been told that its what's on the inside that counts.

3. Tiny

I discovered these tiny Christmas decorations as I was cleaning the other day. I thought the dust and tiny webs would make them more interesting so I waited to clean them until after the photo session.

4. Cupboard

I cleaned out my very vintage cupboards and stocked them with my favorite wintertime soup and stew bowls. I washed up the Christmas plates and glasses so that they'd be ready when the grand kids visit over Christmas break.

5. Shadow

This picture is a little blurred. I didn't want to turn the fan off just yet because when I do I need to clean the dust off the blades. I have it set to push the hot air down. I wasn't quite ready to give up that extra warmth, even for a little while.


  1. I love how you did all the prompts in one picture, so creative.
    Love the cupboard shot and the tiny shot!

  2. Thanks for the great idea! I like the bedroom upstairs to stay cool but the heat rises from below and even with the heat off upstairs it gets too warm (for sleeping). Maybe I'll try turning on the fans downstairs (of course I'll have to dust the blades first since I'm allergic to dust -especially flying dust). Your pie looks mighty fine to me! Nice set of "finds".

  3. I did all the prompts in one shot once - it's a fun challenge to set yourself. Thanks for the reminder -- I'll have to try it again. May I just say, I'd like to be standing in front of that fireplace, eating some of that pie!

  4. Great take on the prompts. I think the pie is very pretty.

  5. Loved the one photo covering all the prompts. :) And I bet that pie was DELICIOUS.

  6. How fun to do all the prompts in one photo (well done.)
    I love your cupboard, those are awesome plates, glasses.
    Such a cute little angle ornament.
    That pie looks so yummy.
    Sorry to be late commenting. - Super busy week.
