Scavenger Hunt Sunday

DIPTYCH
"A diptych is a photograph that uses two different or identical images side by side to form one single artistic statement." I had a lot of ideas for this one and will continue to play with this idea from time to time.

BOOK
A few months back my Mom was discarding some books she didn't want anymore and going through the box I found this one with the name of my blog. It was published in 1951 - long before blogland was even a thought. It's a keeper for me!

FILL IN THE BLANK
This one was so hard for me this week. I couldn't get a clear idea in my head with what to fill in the blanks so last night it came down to this:
"When I think about how life is in the movies, I just have to make popcorn."
I can't wait to see what everybody did with this one.

A TASTE OF ITALY
On the other hand this one was easy. Hubs and I love Italian bread and it's about all we buy. In fact, this loaf was only a dollar at a local discount store and it is very fresh. Yum!

REMINDERS
This is a battery operated recorder that is smaller than my cell phone and fits easily in my purse. My hubby got this for me for Christmas. I can leave myself messages to remind myself about what I need at the grocery, a blog idea that hits me, an upcoming birthday, a phone number, in short, anything I want to remember. It is so much better than looking for a pencil and paper.
Now, I'm off to see what everybody else found in their hunt this week.

I think you did a great job on this week's scavenger hunt. I think it's neat that you found a book with the same title as your blog.
I like your diptych very much.

Great diptych, and I like the painted carton, really adds a clean feel to the egg photos.

Oh, your diptych is brilliant!

Scrappy Grams said...

Every time I see the Scavenger Hunt Sunday entries, I think why don't I do that? Too...? Fill in the
blank. lol
You went that extra mile on painting the textured egg carton. Like you, I appreciate texture even in photographs.
