Hello and Happy Sunday...

I am back to show you what I found for this 
weeks Scavenger Hunt but first I wanted to share with you
about a little road trip the hubby and I took to my sisters house
in Pahrump.  Pahrump is only about an hour and half
away from Boulder City where our trailer is parked. It had been
so long since I had been to her house and I was a little bit shocked
to see how much her and her husband had done to there land. 
Lets just say they won't be buying any eggs any time soon.  
Not with all the chicken they have.   And they also got
 themselves a couple of pigs. 
And in the near future they will be getting a goat.
My city girl sister turned into a farm-girl overnight. LOL..
She is loving her life on there little farm and it so nice
to see her so Happy. 

Well that's enough chatting lets get to this weeks
Scavenger Hunt. 


So here we go..



THREE
This photo was taken on a trip we took last Oct. to 
Saint John, New Brunswick in Canada.  They sure do have some beautiful
old Church's and buildings there.  We had so much fun exploring
and strolling the streets of this city. 



HAND(S)
My attempt at a selfie shot.. 
I couldn't find anything in my archive that would do.
So you get to see a shot of me drinking my coffee.



FENCE
Here is a photo of one of my sister Rosters.
And he was singing bright and early.



CUDDLY
I have tons of photos of these little feral cats from out by my mom's house.
They look so cute and cuddly but really... they won't let you get near them.



SIGN
I have a couple of signs to show you.
This is the sign in the front of my sisters Chicken Coops.
I thought it was so cute.



SIGN #2
Is this a great sign or what.  I happen to think it the perfect name for a bar.
Taken in Saint John, New Brunswick, as well.




Thanks so much for stopping in..

Hugs~

Those church doors are beautiful. Love your selfie! Both of your signs are so creative.

Julie said...

Oh Happy Sunday! Lovely as always,wonder how many attempts your self portrait took;) I'm sure it would take me all day and I'd still end up deleting my results! Have a lovely week xxx

Ida said...

Your set is great. It's wonderful that you enjoyed your visit to your sister's little farm.
Awesome shot of the Church.
Your BW Hands Selfie is really nice.
The rooster behind the chicken wire fence is quite handsome.
So loved the Cuddly looking kittens (I'm a sucker for kittens you know)
The Chicken Coup sign was really cool.

Susan said...

Bar with a lot of wine? Sign me up. Love that rooster shot-and who can resist a cuddly kitten? Well, not me.

abrianna said...

That is a great sign. The church shot is beautiful and that cat's coat looks a little fuzzy. We have some feral cats here too and you are right...you can not get near them.

Wendy AppleApricot said...

Great photos, especially love the rooster behind the fence. Good to hear you had a fun time with your sister. And all the animals :)

Wishing you a happy day!
Hugs, Wendy

Pride In Photos said...

i am sure it has been delightful to catch up with our sister and see all the improvements on her land. But I have to tell you...you made me smile the most with the bar sign...so cute.

Kaeley said...

Lovely photos - but I absolutely LOVE the church photo. It is gorgeous!

Honey Mommy said...

What a wonderful set! Every picture is fabulous. I love the old church photo, and the selfie of your hands is really nice. I need to do selfies more often. I also love your fence shot of the rooster!

Patrice said...

Love that fence shot!

Leovi said...

Beautiful pictures, I really like the colors and the delicacy of the light, the beauty never abandons your work! Greetings.

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Wonderful picture Linda, I can see how your city gal sister turned into a farm girl, when we were there, Randy said the same thing, if we move to Pahrump, he is going to have a garden and plant his own supplies. Last but not least, sorry about today, Randy hasn't been able to sleep well since he got home from new york, so I felt bad to wake him up when he is finally resting on a Sunday morning, we just got home from lunch, and it is 4.15 pm, you can basically guess what time he got out from bed. LOL!

Gayle Price said...

Hey Linda, so good to see your wonderful photos ( I may have missed some posts, Google confuses me, I still haven't got the gist of how it works ). Your farm girl sister sounds right at home with her chickens and pigs. I absolutely adore the photo of the rooster....do you think I could have a copy of it, I would just love to use it in a scrapbook project. I would also love to visit the "little bar with lots of wine" lol what a cute name. Gorgeous images as always. xx

Gayle Price said...

Hello again, yes I did miss posts. I love the beautiful Mother's Day card you made and the tour of your "crafting" space...it actually looks quite big in the photo. I am so happy you can still do your craft work while travelling....you must be such an organised person. Beautiful photos too of your gorgeous old cat. I'm sure he is happy to be any where as long as he is with those that love him, pets are really adaptable as long as they feel safe and loved...kinda like humans I guess. xx

June Houck said...

As always, I love your pictures! The church doors, the fence and flower...so beautiful. And congrats on your city-farm girl sister; big changes for her and I hope she is very happy!~

Lynnda said...

Great finds Linda.... Beautiful shots... love your selfie shot! sweet....

Great to hear from you... hugs...x

Catherine said...

Mwaaaa...those kitties are just too cute!
Have a happy week Linda!
xo Catherine

Leave It To Davis said...

I feel like the Hulk right now because I am green with envy over you pictures! I LOVE that rooster! And what an amazing self-shot! And if that kitten was any cuter, he'd have to be named George Clooney! What mesmerizing eyes he has! Great job!

unikorna said...

OHhhhhhhhhhhhh you're so sweet and feminine and lovely...I adore your hands...and the glimpse of you is so magical and ...inviting :).

Kara Claflin said...

Great shots. That little kitty is so cute but I have some experience with feral cats and they are not pets.

Audrey Pettit said...

Awesome photos, Linda! I always love to see them. The rooster photo through the chicken wire fence totally makes me smile. One of my best friends has recently started raising chickens, and this makes me think of her. Love your selfie portrait, too. And it's so nice to hear about your lovely weekend! Glad you got to make a little trip!

Charlene said...

Fabolous pics Linda!! It's so great to hear what you've been up to!!!Miss you , hugs!

Nancy Claeys said...

All great shots Linda -- but the kitty stole my heart. :)

edenhills said...

I always love talking farm, but your interpretations for this week's scavenger hunt are wonderful too. I love your self-portrait. I'm not brave enough to try doing one of those.

Jane Wetzel said...

hi there Lovely Linda- thinking of you traveling around and having a blast :) I needed to get over here since I missed your photos- they are always AWESOME..I really mean that! Cant figure which one I like best here!

Tracy said...

My sister-in-law lives in Boulder City. I've been glued to the TV all afternoon cause one of her girls lives in Durant, OK, just a little south of Moore. So much destruction and sadness. Your pictures are wonderful as always. As a rooster fanatic I especially love the chick pics. :-) Hugs!

yyam said...

Beautiful pictures. Love the rooster shot! And it must be fun to hang out on your sister's farm. Being happy is sooooo important! Glad she is enjoying rural life!

Emily Keaton said...

Super fun photos, Linda! I loved reading about your sister's farm. :-)

Bunch of Barrons said...
