Scavenger Hunts

Hello there, Long time no see. Many apologies for the lack of blogging. No excuses, just sometimes life gets in the way!

Nevertheless I've still been taking photos and collecting ideas for blogs along the way. So starting today I'm back to blogging. In fact, I have not one, but two scavenger hunt entries. This month for May and my very belated last month's entries. It seemed a shame not to show them :) So joining in with Greenthumb at 'madewithlove', here they are!

For May's challenge It was very apt that one of the words was 'vintage', as I was taking part in a vintage fair. I decided I would try to get all of my pictures over that weekend. So here goes-

Signs outside the vintage fair tent.


Fluffy seed heads and flowers used to decorate the stall

This could have worked for Blue, crystal or frame! A purse frame.

An African mask 

Some lovely blue and white china for sale 

And a crystal Bon bon dish and dressing table set 


 A collection of vintage buttons

I struggled with this one. Even though there were some vintage cars at the show, there were no buses. Until i spotted this image on a Jigsaw! 

Lots of lovely spools of ribbon

Vintage posters 

Old battered suitcases for global travel 

Whatever I like...
There were many lovely things at the fair, but I particularly liked this collection.

April's Scavenger hunt.
 These were mostly taken over the Easter holidays, where I spent a fabulous week doing lots of lovely things with lots of different people. We were over in Northumberland and hired a cottage for a week. We went on lots of lovely walks, spent time at the beach and had some really nice visits to new places, snapping pictures along the way.

Something sweet
Sweet french toast with fruit and creme fraiche.

 New Buds


Lizzie (My Neice) and I stayed over at a lovely little B and B. This was our room

 A panorama over towards Lindesfarne

Upside down

All of these images could be turned upside down, the reflections are so very clear.

Rain- Found on the weather chart

Cute little chairs in my friend's nursery

 The wind was very fresh on the beech.

Measuring feet of water in the harbour.

Whatever you want..
Old harbour posts.


Lovely sea glass
So there you are, two scavenger hunts for the price of one. now I've got my blogging mojo back, I hope you'll keep popping by.
