I know, you're surprised to see me two days in a row, especially since I've been such a slacker lately. I'm just unpredictable - it's part of my charm! But it's time for another Scavenger Hunt at Made With Love, and I got my act together this month. Thanks to Greenthumb for hosting!
Lots of variety this time, and I even put in a cameo appearance. Drum roll, please.
S is for...
The Simpsons and Springfield.
This mural was recently completed in the adjoining town of Springfield, and since Matt Groening (creator of The Simpsons) is from Oregon we're all sure that our Springfield is the REAL Springfield.
OUTSIDE YOUR WINDOW and 2PM
I call this "Study in Texture and Geometry" but it's really just a photo looking out the bathroom window. And it was taken around 2PM.
Washington State Ferry - there are cars parked on it (in it?).
This is my plastic fedora. It had a Happy New Year band around it and came from a party store, but I've been making use of it for photos (in VOGOFF and others that I'll link up tomorrow for Hat Attack!). It would actually be very practical in the rain because it's waterproof.
IN THE MIRROR
First I told my friend not to let me buy anything that day. Then I ended up at the cash register with this little mirror, and I told her, "Don't stop me. I know what I'm doing." Twenty-some years later, and I've never regretted buying it.
One very ambitious spider - he built this web across our path three times!
Not a recent picture, but just perfect for Lock.
This is why you should always bring your camera wherever you go. We were walking on a country road, and wandered off to explore this old wooden bridge over a stream. The bridge was studded with long nails that had been bent over. I was so busy taking pictures and thinking ,"Wow, this is lucky," and my husband was busy figuring out that the nails had been put in this way to add traction for when the bridge was wet or iced up.
The lamp on my desk, which was a wedding present to my parents in 1951. Pink and gold may not be everyone's cup of tea - which is why my mother got rid of it - but I think it's lovely.
...dwarfed by a roof sign.
Mr. S's vice - Spider Solitaire. He's frighteningly good at it.
That's all for today, but I'll be back tomorrow. Three days in a row!
