Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Welcome back to another week of Scavenger Hunt Sunday. Felicity turned three months old yesterday. Hard to believe we’ve survived three whole months. Yes…I said it…survive. I do love my baby girl but she is a hand full…and a heavy one at that. Somehow or another, my 6 lb, 3 oz baby has gotten quite heavy to tote around. I actually forget that she was born early – well, until someone points out how tiny she is based on her age. In fact, last weekend when we went to see our new nephew, we’re walking around the maternity ward and the nurses stopped us thinking we were carrying out a new baby. Nope, she’s not that new anymore. On another note, I wanted to remind you that the Quarter Top Five is live. If you’ve been participating, you know the routine, but if you’re new, here are a few things you should know:

  • Linky is open through Wednesday, October 3rd
  • Go through your July, August and September 2012 photo archives.
  • Choose your favorite FIVE photos and post them to your blog or Flickr account beginning September 26th
  • PLEASE only use photos that include your CHILDREN and/or PETS
  • Accompany each photo with a short explanation (or caption) of why it was selected
  • Link up with Amber at Click.Pray.Love, & Sarah at NapTime MomTog, or me at Ramblings and Photos
With that said, let’s get to the hunt. If you’ve participated in the Scavenger Hunt in the past, I hope this week’s items inspired you. If you’re new to the Scavenger Hunt…WELCOME! Next week’s items are sponsored by Kamana at Journaling through Photos.

The rules are simple:
  1. Anyone can participate.
  2. You’re encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge. Creativity is also encouraged!
  3. If you get stumped, you may use one photo from your archive (although I’m not too strict about it – I do my best to take fresh shots).
  4. Link up here on Sunday (or Tuesday at the latest) – you can use the button above.
  5. Leave comments for at least five entries around yours (with so many new participants each week, it’s the only way I know to be inclusive).
  6. Have fun!
Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. Yellow

These are actually artificial flowers that I have on our dining room table. Since the sun was out on Friday, I thought they’d look pretty. The sun has since gone into hiding.

2. Getting Ready

Getting Ready for the Day
I typically don’t get ready during the week…not with makeup and hair, ya know? Considering I stay at home all day, I’m lucky if I get dressed in something other than lounge clothes. I still thought it’d be appropriate to photograph my powder and blush brushes though.

3. Bright

As I mentioned earlier, the sun came out to play on Friday. I realized that I haven’t taken a sun flare or starburst photo in a while…but this prompt definitely called for it.

4. Teeny Tiny

The other day I started pulling some things for Felicity to wear to her uncle’s wedding in October. To start, I pulled a few dresses and these teeny tiny booties. She hasn’t worn them yet, but I think they’ll look perfect with her dress for the wedding.

5. Connections

I had no idea what to photograph for this prompt – although any social media would have been appropriate. I decided to go with my connect buttons at the bottom of my website. If you haven’t connected with me yet, I encourage you to do so.

So, what were your interpretations of the items this week? Be sure to load your pictures on your blog (or your Flickr photostream) and link up at the bottom of this post. Feel free to grab a button to display on your blog along with your scavenger hunt items. The linky will be open until Tuesday night at midnight (EST). If you didn’t participate this week, but want to participate next week, here are your items (these can also be found at the bottom of my blog each week), sponsored by Kamana at Journaling through Photos:
  1. Shadow
  2. Keys
  3. Smile
  4. Unedited
  5. Spice

Again, thank you to Kamana at Journaling through Photos for so many great scavenger hunt items. If you’d like to contribute items to the list (and I could use some fresh lists), just send me an email with your suggestions (I can better keep track of them this way – and I appreciate all of you that have submitted lists already…my SHS file is quite happy). Each week, I will select one reader’s prompt list, add those items to what is currently on tap and give the selected reader a shout out on my blog during Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

Happy Shooting!


    I am loving that sunflare!

    I really love this entire set! The first is intriguing ly beautiful. I love the baby booties as well!

    Cute booties! Loving the sunflare shot too.

    I always love to see what your interpretations are from the prompts!

    I really love your yellow picture! It is amazing how well they make artificial flowers now.

    I am with you on getting ready. I actually don’t wear make up very often, but I do make it a point to actually get dressed each day even though I am usually home with my kids. Somehow it makes me feel more like I have accomplished something with my day.

    Love your yellow, it’s beautiful!

    I love baby shoes!

    Really great set again Ashely. I love all the detail you have in your photo’s. Everything is always so well put together.
    This week I am really loving your,
    Yellow Shot – Hard to believe those are fake flowers.
    Teeny Tiny – Oh those are such sweet little botties and the B/W composition is lovely.

    Fabulous set this week!

    I LOVE your teeny-tiny… and what a gorgeous shot for Yellow!

    Oh what a fabulous set – love bright!!

    Another group of lovely shots!

    Happy to be joining up today Ashley. Love those little booties. xo

    I know what you mean about surviving those months. My third child is now nealry seven months old and I’m impressed I’ve made it this far. When I was expecting her I panicked about how I would be able to cope with her and the other two. But she has slotted nicely into out little family and it’s like she’s always been here.

    Beautiful pictures. I keep going back to your yellow shot, there’s just something magical about it.

    Nice shots, Ashley…I love those teeny tiny booties!

    Beautiful set! I especially love the sun coming through the trees!

    These are all wonderful – yellow is amazing, so much depth and intrigue!

    Teeny Tiny is sooo cute! I love baby booties.

    Gorgeous, I love yellow!! The baby booties, are perfect for teeny tiny.

    Love your set today! Especially the booties!!

    Love your yellow shot!

    These are beautiful Ashley- I really love that first one. Would have never guessed they were artificial.

    Stunning shot of yellow!

    Beautiful photos this week Ashley. Glad to see you out and about a bit with your camera, but those teeny-tiny boots reflected-such a great shot. Agree with Gina, hard to tell those are fake flowers and the light there is ooh la la!

    Best teeny tiny shot ever :D ADORABLE!

    beautiful set….& those tiny boots, too cute!!

    have a fun sunday & thanks for hosting!!

    Love all your pics especially getting ready and “teeny tiny.”

    Thanks for hosting this meme. I really enjoy it .

    Fun interpretations Ashley. Have a good week

    Love your teeny tiny shot. Great set this week!

    Those booties are to die for; love the brushes as well.

    I love the teeny tiny and the yellow. But they are all just right!

    Those little booties and their reflection – perfect! The yellow looks more natural than artificial because of your lighting. Great shots all.

    Yellow is so glorious! It glows!
    great idea for connections! I’m now following you on Pinterest!

    The little booties picture is my favorite! I also like your yellow flowers and bright picture. Have a wonderful week, Ashley.

    Really loving your bright shot and the yellow shot. And the teeny tiny booties are so cute!

    Love your yellow & teeny tiny.
    Also – looking at next week’s list I see “keys” as a prompt. We did that one back in May.

    Great set as always! Love the sunflare and those little booties are adorable!!!

    One of these weekends i need to join the fun…I so enjoy seeing everyones interpretations.

    Great set! Love the flowers! I’d never have guessed those were artificial. And I like the composition and B&W processing of Teeny Tiny.

    I love your set this week (of course I love seeing Felicity and I missed her, but I saw her on FB/instagram so it is okay that she didn’t make your five pics) but you truly are an artist. I love to see how you can work that camera! So amazing.

    Your yellow makes me happy!

    Ah… motherhood is a blissfully (tiring) job! =) wait til you have more than one! Wait… no… enjoy the bliss of one … til you have two!! lol! =)

    love the baby bootie shot…love the reflection…the black and white… and they are so sweet!!

    Your teeny weeny little girl isn’t so teeny anymore…since I have been writing more than taking photos I have not been here in awhile and thought I’d visit. Thanks for your always thoughtful blog, the opportunity to post new photos and to see how
    beautifully Felicity is growing ;-)

    Great shots Ashley. I keep getting the prompts done then I don’t get around to posting them! I sooo miss the SHS community.

    A freind shared this link . I must figure it out. It looks like so much fun and great inspiration. I don’t have a Blog so this might just be a reason to start one.
