This week for the Scavenger Hunt I found a few of my favorite things to photograph. The prompts for today were book, mail, star, saturated and wall.
If you were to come to my house looking for a book to read, I feel sure you would find one to your liking. My shelves contain books of nearly every genre and for every age group. This photo is just a small sampling of what you can choose from. My favorites growing up were mysteries, biographies, and pioneer books. The books I am more likely to pick up now are ones I can learn from. My most recent reads have been about writing. I do love historical fiction, though. What type of books do you like to read?
Mail was delivered through the Pony Express mail service via horseback from April of 1860 to October of 1861. During the eighteen months it was in operation, many great stories were told. I have always been fascinated by them. I began collecting books about the Pony Express around ten years ago. I have these eight books plus several more not pictured.
Dr Pepper was my family's drink of choice for many years. Now I drink water almost exclusively. Although I don't drink Dr Pepper any more, I have an extensive collection of Dr Pepper memorabilia. I noticed this clock, made to commemorate our country's bicentennial, had a star for each of the original thirteen colonies.
A few days ago, Joe and I found this tree saturated with oyster mushrooms. We have only found them high up on (usually dead) tree trunks. Often you can smell their fresh sweet scent before you see the fruit. They are considered choice eating but were already getting old, so we left them alone. Mushrooms are fun to hunt, even if you never eat any of them. Some varieties will make you very sick, so if you do decide to hunt some to eat, I would advise you to study them well and carry an identification book with you.
These wall mount pop bottle openers are a part of my Dr Pepper collection. They are used mostly for decoration today, since most pop bottles have twist off caps.
I hope you have enjoyed my post this week. It was a fun one for me. Thanks for stopping by. I would love for you to leave a comment and tell me what you thought of my interpretations for the prompts: book, mail, star, saturated and wall. I am anxious to visit your posts to see what you found on your scavenger hunt.
