Melli’s September Photo Scavenger Hunt


Melli dreamed up and planned out a Photo Scavenger Hunt. She told us about it a month ago…but somehow time got away from me and I have only been working on it the last few days. And this happens to be one of the busiest weeks in a long time for me with my monthly ladies’ booklet due plus five different medical appointments for three of us (nothing wrong — just catching up with check-ups, eye exams, etc.) . All of that to say…I didn’t find all the items on the list. 😳 I wish I had started earlier. I don’t know if you have to have them all to participate — but I don’t want to waste the photos I do have — so I’ll post what I’ve got and then get my 50 lashes… (Edited to add: I did find more than I thought I would…but that’s one reason this is being posted so late in the day. 🙂 )

1.) Something in flight


2.) A gas pump

Sorry, nothing for this one. I was trying to find a picture of a toy one the kids used to love to play with.

3.) Graffiti … or street art

Street art

4.) Soap or soapy

5.) An herb


6.) Something vinyl


7.) A bottle of perfume/cologne


Pretty uncreative here — Jim doesn’t care for perfumes or cologne and most of them give me a headache, so I just got a picture at a store. These caught my eye because I used to wear this in high school. I almost bought it just to see if it smelled like I remembered and wouldn’t bother me, but figured that would be a waste. I would have loved to have found one of those old-fashioned atomizer bottles.

8.) Snazzy Shoes


Another store photo — all of our shoes are pretty basic.

9.) A worm

Sorry, nothing for this either. The only ones I saw were dead and shriveled. I was going to go to the children’s or babies’ section on W-Mart to see if there were any toy ones, and I forgot.

10.) A city bus


11.) Something curly

Gold curliques

12.) A key


13.) Something cold

Jeremy on a snowy day

14.) Sports Memorabilia


From our school. NOT from me — I am totally unathletic!

15.) A feather/feathers


16.) Something twisted

Twisted donuts

17.) A hole

Donut holes

18.) A leprechaun


Sorry. Where else was I going to find a leprechaun this time of year? 😀

19.) Something lacy

Lace curtains

20.) Something nutty


21.) Sheet music


22.) A splash


23.) An apple/apples/apple something

Apple sculpture

24.) A shovel


25.) Something empty.

26.) A triangle

Triangle awning

27.) Something purple

Purple plant

28.) Juicy


29.) Noisy


30.) Something sad


Veteran salute at my father-in-law’s funeral. Sad, but poignant and honorable.

I did enjoy this challenge very much. Next time I will start earlier — I like thinking outside the box a little bit and taking time to find something interesting or unique. I was very pleased with a few of these. Some are new just today! Some are from years ago.

It may be later tonight or even the weekend before I am able to visit the other participants, but you can find links to them at Melli‘s.

  1. Ohhhhhh sOMe of these are absolutely FABULOUS! I have to tell ya — I am CRAZY about your apples!!! That is, hands down, my favorite apple of the day!!! You should have seen me when I saw it! I was VERY excited! And your twisted and your holes got me too! YUM! I laughed at your empty…. and your KEY was very very clever thinking! I am well pleased with your efforts! Don’t feel bad about getting them up late… Quilly is still working on hers too – and several others are not up. I don’t know if they WILL be … or if they gave up.

  2. Hi Barbara,
    I almost didn’t think I would have them all either. I worked hard yesterday and was out chasing city buses!
    You did great – the ball in flight and key are impressive thinking, I wore that perfume too for a little while back in the day.
    Love the twisted and I’d love to have one about now. 🙂
    Great leprechaun- I didn’t even think of that!
    Your apples are super as Melli said – awesome find!!

  3. OMG Barbara what a fantastic photo hunt. I love your sad and your twisted is just awesome. The key, cold and apples are just the best. I loved this. Excellent work my friend. I had a great time doing this. Rabbit, rabbit Aloha 🙂

  4. Wow, Barbara! I am impressed! You are such a devoted blogger and a good one!
    Of all of your pictures, my fave was the empty!! LOL Oh my word! How true and how funny!! I am the resident toilet-paper-filler-upper here at our house. *sigh* 🙂 No, really…I don’t mind!
    I might have to see about doing this one since I have a month to do it! 🙂

  5. I love your twists and the holes! You stole my leprechaun (but I have a great story to go with mine.) Those apples are way cool and your “empty” just left me feeling frustrated -LOL! Been there. Don’t want to do that again! Your key was way creative and I feel bad for the poor dog. Did you wash it just for the photo?

  6. These are great, as always. I love the doughnut twists, the leprechaun, the tp tube, and your versions of “wet” and “curly.”

    The last photo is sad indeed… As you say, sad, but honorable.

  7. Hi–what a job to compile all of these photos!!! It looks like you really had to think—esp on the leprechaun (hmm, is that spelled correctly??)–hey, you could have shown a pic of your hubby and called it a leprechaun ha/——I wouldn’t have anything close to snazzy shoes!!
