October Photo Scavenger Hunt

 Hey there. Welcome to all my established and my new readers, Glad you have joined me at Graham's landing. Another month has flown by and it's that time again for our scavenger hunt. Joining in with Greenthumb at Madewithlove here are my 12 photographs.
 
Flower
One of the things I enjoyed looking at whilst I was at home was the vast amount of flowers. I particularly liked that all the bunches and bouquets I had seen were in seasonal colours- and I just love this one with ornamental cabbages:)
 
Black and White
As I was sorting out photos and things for my grandma's birthday I found this black and white one of her wedding. There's a bit of a glare on the photo as it was framed, but I love this photo. Her dress was a pale blue, by the way, and this was 1943.
 
Orange
No kidding, this pumpkin was huge. A small child could sit on it!
 
Homemade
Not homemade by me, but still homemade. I went to a little local craft fair whilst in the UK and bought this fabric brooch, corsage thingy- not sure what I'll wear it with but I liked the fabric. I wondered why, then got home and realised I had the same fabric in my stash!

 Flight
My last flight over half term week- the 6th flight in a week! This one was from KL TO KK, Unfortunately I made the flight but my luggage didn't! It arrived later that evening luckily!
 
Emotion
I love these photos and couldn't choose between which one, so I apologise for having both- This is my friends little girl B, She was very happy in the first one as she was watching a balloon. The second photo was some elderly gentleman that took a shine to hear when we were watching the horse festival. I love the look of absolute delight on his face:)

I found a group of metal house numbers for sale in our local garden centre- obviously they must have ran out of number 1s!
 
Balloon


A whole bunch of them at the horse festival. B bought the Nemo one!
 
Rubbish 
 
Unfortunately this is just the norm here in Malaysia

Weather Cock
 
A weather cock found, in all places, in the centre of Dubai Airport!
 
Fridge Magnet 
Some of my fridge magnets I have picked up one my travels, and others have been sent to me- My mum sent me the OMG one and my favourites are the NYC ones that my sister picked up for me the last time she was there- lucky thing:)
 
Coffee time 
Well this was an easy one for me- you know what I'm like for my love of coffee shops!
 
Well, that's it for another month, hope you enjoyed them- here's looking forward to November's list.

  3. I really enjoy these posts. How wonderful to have your grandma's wedding photo! I loved seeing it. I like the 23 house numbers too; the first house my husband and I ever lived in together had "23" in the address and our current one does too; we plan to live here as long as possible, so we've come full circle. :)

    1. Thank you- I was struggling for black and white, but then when I was looking at old photos it just struck me that these indeed were black and white!

  6. Really enjoyed your photos, and how wonderful to have that photo. I wonder what you will make with your special fabric to match your corsage ;) Perhaps a clutch purse...?? The flower bouquet is beautiful and the smiling faces light up the day.

  10. I enjoyed your photos, again! I appreciate your explanations. The stories behind the photos are always interesting. That bouquet was a creative collection of flowers and cabbages! My absolute favorite photo though is the black and white one of your grandmother's wedding. It's so 1940s wartime ~ just fascinating. Thanks for sharing it! Take care!

    1. Hello, yes I love that photo too- I should still ask her about some of the details whilst she's still going strong and can fill me in:)

    2. Oh do talk to your grandmother. I know from sad experience that once someone is gone, many of one's stories and family history are gone too!

  13. Your photos are all lovely. You could have used a close up of the pumpkin in this months patterns, it really looks wonderful, nature is so clever. That iced coffee has my mouth watering. I'll have to get one tomorrow!
