Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

It's Sunday, so you know what that means.
Scavenger Hunt time. 

So the words this week are;

Monochromatic
Starts with a letter
Upside down
Hair
Soft

So here we go. This is how I interpreted this weeks prompts.


MONOCHROMATIC
Can you believe this was taken in my back yard. 
It is usually way too bright to get a shot like this. That's what 
happens when you wake up early and grab your camera before the 
sun gets too high.. 




STARTS WITH A LETTER
B is for Ball Jar...  
I just love my antique Ball jars.. 
I always have fun trying to get photos of them in different light. 




UPSIDE DOWN
I just love these gorgeous flowers. I took this photo while
I was in Portland.  They definitively don't grow here in the desert.
I am pretty sure the name of these are Fuchsia.  But don't quote me on that. 




HAIR
I was going to try to get a selfie shot of me flipping my hair in the
air.  Maybe if I was 10 years younger I would have..  So you just get
to see the Hair on my paint brush.. 
 I am pretty sure it is some type of hair.
Right..





SOFT
This week at our Thursday morning card game we had a newbie there. 
My niece... and she brought her new sweet little bundle of joy.
Lets just say we spent more time holding this cutie pie than
playing cards.





I just wanted to say thanks so much for all your comments from my 
last post.  They truly warmed my heart my sweet friends.
And a lot of you asked if I would keep on blogging
and that is a definite YES.

Hugs~
