Scavenger Hunt Sunday

TEXTURE
(before)
(after)
I added a Kim Klassen texture called peeling paint to the image of the petunia and even though the texture seems a little heavy I like it. It reminds me of old fashioned vintage wallpaper.

FOG
Don't you love the quiet and introspective of a foggy day?
BUTTON
This is a heartshaped pin given to me by my best friend Doris a few years ago.
The back is heartshaped and layered with buttons.

BEVERGE OR DRINK
A little snow, some milk, some sugar, a drop or two of vanilla -viola, snowshake - YUM!

THE SEVENTIES
Long before CD's and IPods came along there were eight track tapes. I bought this player with money from the first job I ever had. The three tapes you see of Carole King and The Carpenters got played more times during my college years than anything else I had. The player still works. To quote The Carpenters, "It's yesterday once more".......

That fog shot is awesome!!

You really do mean 'snow' don't you!! (for a second I just thought it was a groovy name for ice cream). The northern hemisphere is so cool (no pun intended!!).
Love the 8 track shot (love the carpenters!!)

I love the foggy picture. So quiet and serene. Technology changes more rapidly these days.

Snow cream....I can remember my mom making that when I was a kid. I always loved it because we didn't get ice cream so it was a real treat.

Ashley Sisk said...

Wonderful job - I really love your texture and fog shots!

George said...

Thanks for the memories -- snow cream and eight-track players. I remember both very well. I also really like your fog picture. You did a great job on this scavenger hunt.

I like the texture over the pansy a lot, and the button pin is beautiful.

Hope your Sunday is peaceful!

Nice photos, I love the buttons, and the classic 8 track cassette player. I liked the idea of a snow shake too. We used to have snow ice cream, but never as a shake.

Gretchen said...

Love your fog shot! We made snow cream this week too!! =P

I love this picture. Carol King and the Carpenters, timeless. I love your music as well on the playlist. I am playing it now while traveling to other blogs.

Rose said...

The Carpenters was my best friends favorite I think....back then I liked them and Carole K. but not my favorite...in later years Carole King came out with an album I think the name is City Streets...can recall for sure. But City Streets is one of my all time favorite songs...and I really liked the whole album. That was back in the time of cassette and I have it in that...need to see if I can download some of the songs though. Think I looked at one time and they weren't available but they might be now.

Kala said...
