There's been no snow to speak of yet. Luckily the storm moving up the East Coast isn't going to get as far west as Rochester. They're predicting several inches by early next week, though, so I think winter's on its way. We had blue skies with lots of sunshine today so I thought I'd look around the house while there was some decent light for photographs and see what I could find for Eileen's Winter Photography Scavenger Hunt.
First off #8: "Silver."
This silver bowl was a wedding gift. For the last several years I've filled it with bells and ornaments. This year I found this silver bell garland at Crate and Barrel. I just love it!
And three predominately silver ornaments from our tree.
Number 19 is "A pair of . . ."
One of my favorite pairs of gloves. I put them on the typewriter that sits on the dresser in our front hall at Christmas.
Number 13 is "A line of . . . "
This line of leather camels has resided on the window sill for many, many years. Tracy's mom and stepfather brought them back from Egypt when they visited there.
The first item I found for the scavenger hunt was last night on our way home from friends. We passed this amazing display of blow-up Christmas decorations. It's perfect, I think, for #17 "Many."
Number 11, "A book shop" is probably the most interesting item I've found. I was at Barnes and Noble this morning to pick up a book. A volunteer from Wild Wings, a group dedicated to the care and housing of injured birds of prey was there as a fund raiser.
I have ideas for several more items, and know that some of them will be easy to find in February when we're away. For now, I'm glad to have five crossed off the list. The scavenger hunt goes from now until the 21st of March, so if you'd like to join in, there's plenty of time. The list is right here.
