Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

How are you doing my sweets?
We are enjoying our weekend here.

We have done a little spring cleaning, Or should I say
Fall cleaning.  We emptied out our closet and got rid of
clothing we no longer wear.  I am the worst at shopping, lets just
say I don't have a whole lot of clothes.  My husband actually has more
than I have.  That's just not right.  I guess it's because I just hate trying clothes
on. Nothing ever looks right.  I would love to have a shopper come and pick
out all my clothes for me.  How cool would that be!
That's why most of the time you will catch me in my Jeans and converse.

 Anyhoo..  It sure does feel good to have our closet
nice and clean.


So on to this weeks
Scavenger Hunt.

The words this week are;

CRACKED, FALLEN, ORDINARY COLOR, BOKEH, FENCE
 




CRACKED
 I
I just love the way this Bouganvilla leaf looks.
I know those aren't cracks but it sure does look like it to me.



FALLEN

It's that time of year.. Falling leaves..




ORDINARY COLOR

Love playing with my watercolors.
As you can see I am pretty messy with my paints.




BOKEH

Branches from my Mexican Bird of Paradise.
Not the best shot, But it will do. Lots of Bokeh.




FENCE

I just love this photo.  This fence is in front of one of
my favorite places to eat ribs.  It's call Lucille's.  It is so yummy!




I wanted to say Thanks You 
for all the kind comments on my last post.


I do hope you all have a nice relaxing weekend. 

Hugs~

Good morning, my friend! I enjoyed looking at your photos (as ALWAYS) as a beautiful start to my day. Loved each one, but the paintbox especially grabbed me!

And I feel as you do about trying on clothes, and owning them. Same here with me and hubby. He's got more than I do. Sigh.

Terry said...

You are too funny! I always say I wish I had a personal shopper to buy my clothes! I try them on and feel like a freak! Go through all the trouble and maybe end up with one article of clothing! Nothing ever fits rights! Too tight here or falls off there! I use to sew all my clothes and fit was never an issue! Too lazy now! Great pictures, GF! Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Becca said...

All beautiful Linda! Glad you are enjoying your weekend at home.

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

I cleaned out my closets and gave old clothes to charity last week while on holidays. But opposite of you, I love shopping and still have lots left in my closet. Haha. Back to work tomorrow so I think I will wear a new dress to cheer me up! LOL!

Carol Blackburn said...

I agree they are all so lovely and I love the white fence shot doubly lovely.

Gayle Price said...

Beautiful shots, as always. l love the first one of the Bouganvillia, the colour is amazing and of course your paints. I don't think you could enjoy creating if you had to keep your watercolours neat, mess is part of the process, well that's my excuse anyway. xx

1st off, Linda...thank you so much for the generous (and super sweet) comment you left me Sunday. It means so much, especially coming from someone as gifted as you! 2nd, this is another amazing collection. You never disappoint, my friend. Love, love, love that bokeh shot!

Audrey Pettit said...

Beautiful photos, Linda! Love your take on cracks and fallen! Everything is so, so pretty. I need to go look up bokeh, though. I have no idea what that is. ;)
I'm with you on the clean house, thing. I sure hate to do it, but it feels so good afterwards. I've been trying to tackle my windows lately. Hate that job, but boy they need a good scrubbing.

hiflight said...

Love your fence shot and the fallen is also wonderful. Thanks

Kathy, PaperPumpkin said...

Oh, Linda, your leaves photos are stunning! Love the crackle look! I want to draw it, paint it, keep looking at yours. I always love seeing your photography. Have an awesome new week! ~ kath

Buttons said...

Oh I love your photos. They are so nice and crisp if you know what I mean.
Yeah for clean closets. My husband has more clothes than I do too, same reason. :) B

Lisa Gordon said...

It must have been a fall cleaning weekend!
I spent most of Saturday and Sunday doing the same as you. Feels good, especially knowing it is done. Until the spring that is! :-)

Your photos are wonderful. I especially love the first two.

Wishing you a great evening!

Ros Crawford said...

How I love your photos ... you really are a brilliant photographer ... and hey I'll come shopping with you!

JansArtyJunk said...

I totally relate with you Linda. I'm a Jeans and converse girl too....just hate shopping for clothes!!... LOVE your new pics...especially the paints shot.

Seizing My Day said...

Wow...stunning set! I esp. love the water color shot! I wish I could have someone shop for/with me too!

Katy Noelle said...

Beautiful, beautiful images!!! =]

Linda, it's so funny what you said about your clothes.... I've been awake since about 2:00, this morning (almost 4, now) and.... somewhere in the watches of the night, I was thinking about how I don't have many clothes - I wear the same things all the time - for years on end (but, clean, of course! =]) I was thinking that if I could just lose fifteen more pounds, I could fit into all sorts of cute dresses and skirts that I've been hoarding since I last wore them, fifteen years ago when I started having babies. Then, I realized.... they're probably so out of date.... I need to go clothes shopping....

Well! Once again, great minds think alike! =]
