Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Can you believe it’s February? I mean, I guess it was February last week, but it just now hit me. Other things that have hit me…a massive headache. I’m pretty sure it’ll be gone by the time this post launches, but I thought I’d mention it just in case you wanted to feel sorry for me (ha ha – just kidding). Anyways, 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  Jenny Rain and Honey Mommy.
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
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 (we have so many new participants each week, this is the only way I know to be inclusive).
  6. Have fun!
Without further discussion…here are my interpretations this week:

1. Facial Feature
Kitty Nose RS
I took a similar shot around this time last year. I really didn’t plan on taking another photo of Kitty Paw (alright – who am I kidding…of course I was), but she’s so darn cute that I couldn’t help myself.

2. Shadow
London Eye Shadow RS
This is the only archived photo I used this week, but I just processed it. As it turns out, the sun rarely came out this week. Well it did yesterday (Saturday), but I had a huge headache so I wasn’t much in the mood to get outside. Anyways, this was taken on the London Eye during my vacation in September.

3. Spicy
Spicy RS
I had a few ideas for spicy, but spicy presented itself to me over dinner last night when my husband ordered schezwan chicken. I stay away from anything that spicy – there’s no reason for unnecessary heartburn.

4. Gold
Gold RS
I always knew that I wanted to frame our wedding invitation, so I kept the invitation itself rather simple. My mom had one of her artist friends paint the flowers and then framed it in this gold frame. I love it.

5. Fabric
Fabric RS
Finally, I love this fabric. My mom found it for me when we were decorating my townhouse (before I met my husband). If it wasn’t so expensive, we probably would have done more than a couple of pillows and a seat cushion. Either way, my mom has great taste…so I’ll definitely be using her expertise as we decorate the nursery.

So, what were your interpretations of the items this week? I can’t wait to check them out. 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):
  1. Love (Jenny Rain’s suggestion)
  2. Duplicated (Jenny Rain’s suggestion)
  3. Trend or Trending (Jenny Rain’s suggestion: you might go to Twitter to identify topics that are trending and take a photo that symbolizes that trend)
  4. Paper (Honey Mommy’s suggestion)
  5. Plastic (Honey Mommy’s suggestion)
Again, thank you to Jenny Rain and Honey Mommy for so many great scavenger hunt items. If you’d like to contribute items to the list, just send me an email with your suggestions (I can better keep track of them this way). 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!
