May photo scavenger hunt

Amazing how fast time passes, it is already time for another photo scavenger hunt. This month's prompts were fun and I had plenty of choice for most of them.

The scavenger hunt is organised by Greenthumb over at Made with love. Have a look at all the other scavenger hunts, there are some amazing photos to see!
 
 
L is for Love: I know I know, a bit clich├ęd but I have been looking for an excuse to take a photo of my paper love heart.

 


7pm: This time of day is often story time in our house.

 
 

Left: The only prompt left on my list for this month's scavenger hunt. I was undecided which interpretation of left I should look out for and left this prompt or last.


 

Gadget: my favourite kitchen gadget. I probably use it every day.


 

Puzzle: These are pieces from a puzzle we did as at Christmas time two years ago. There were a 1000 pieces, all showing 1970s shopping essentials. A good memory of a fun activity.

 


Letter: I found this photo on my memory card. Thank you Andrea. Letters and the beginning of a (German) letter.

 


Reflection: an imperfect reflection of shrubbery in a tiny puddle.
 
 


Fresh: freshly cut peonies for the living room. The flowers are so large that they need staking if left outside.




Tiny: the tiniest possible plumlets on our Victoria plum tree.
 
 

 

 
Hidden: a small beach cove hidden in the woods

 


Demolition: what remains of a home.
 
 


Antique: this is the drawer handle of our drinks cabinet. I noticed that every single one of the eight handles is different.

  2. These are wonderful, Christina. You fulfilled all the prompts so well. That heart is so cute, did you make it? I loved seeing your little boys all ready for bed, they're adorable and they're sitting so nicely for their story. Richard looks like a very patient dad. I am sure those peonies were really nice in the living room, I love the way they smell. This was a fun post, thanks for sharing. I hope you're having a good weekend, friend.

  3. I love your paper heart - did you make it yourself? I like your take on 'left' but my favourite has to be the reflection.

  8. These are beautiful photos, Christina! But the one of your husband and boys pulls at my heartstrings! Just darling! I love to do jigsaw puzzles, so that was fun! And the peonies! They don't grow them like that in Colorado! Have a great weekend!

  10. Wonderful photos, and I love the idea of a scavenger hunt. I have the same peonies as you, but they've finished now. I cut back the flowers today and swept up a thousand bright pink petals. Glad to see you guys like Owl Babies. Hope you have a lovely Sunday. CJ xx

  19. The scavenger hunt looks like fun. I'm sure it must make you think differently about the way you look at things.

  25. Hey Christina,
    I love this! 7pm is story time here too. Did you make the paper heart? It's lovely. And those peonies are superb. I'd love a peony in my garden, but am full to bursting. Maybe in my next one!

  28. I like the look of these scavenger hunts, sometimes it's really fun to have a prompt when taking photos. I can't believe how gorgeous your fresh peonies are. I'd love to have some growing in the garden. Instead, I make do with buying them in the supermarket. x
