Scavenger Hunt Sunday and Monday Mural

It's good to be back for Scavenger Hunt Sunday. I hope you enjoy my interpretations of this week's photography prompts.
1.  TOOLS
These are some old vintage tools Hubby has collected. I found the old wood tool box years ago.

2.  MOTION
A dove heading for the bird feeder.
 
3.  SWEET
Yesterday morning's breakfast - blueberry muffins!

4.  DOTS
I found this little box at the dollar store. It's actually a balloon weight. A dear friend who was overseas at the time sent me this poem years ago. I don't know who wrote it but the box that doesn't open reminded me of the poem.

5.  STRIPES
Hubby and I were in Marietta, Ohio on Friday when he decided at the last minute to stop for gas. As he pulled in the gas station we were headed back the way we had come. I glanced out my window and saw this mural. This is one of the best examples of Trompe L'oeil that I've ever seen. Even as I sat looking at it I forgot the wall was flat. It's perfect for the stripes prompt and for the 4th of July this week. Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday!

Great photos! The bird in flight snap is great. And I love the US Flag!

"Round The Bend" has been included in the A Sunday Drive for this week. Be assured that I hope this helps to point even more new visitors in your direction.

Great captures Carletta! Love the mural.

Mary Gene Atwood said...

those tools are so cool! Amazing work on the mural. Hard to find anyone that still uses that art form. Nice collection this week.

Deanna said...

Oh you are so right, that flag is a brilliant work of art....the muffins do look pretty yummy and the bird is perfect for your motion shot!!

The old tolls shot is lovely. And the flag shot-that painting is indeed amazing.

Glad you are back to the hunt!

Nancy said...

You are really good at this challenge as every week you nail each interpretation....The bird in flight in awesome, the muffins make me hungry and that flag mural is just amazing....

I can sense you really loved the photos for this week's words... As many before me have mentioned, that flag is amazing + an unexpected find! I often have to stage my pics so running across a picture is such a treat!
Have a fabulous 4th...

Fab set this week.
Those old tools looks so cool in the old tool box.
Your motion shot of the dove is awesome.
Sweet looked delicious.
Dots was very inspirational and Stripes is my favorite from you set. Fantastic mural.

Ann said...

Came over from As the Crackerhead crumbles to have a look. Love your shots. That flag is awesome

Susan said...

That is an awesome piece...the sense of movement. Glanced? Really? That would make my head yank over to the side.
Blueberry muffins. I totally need to make some. Love that tool box shot as well.

Great scavenger hunt finds, Carletta!

The tool box with rusty tools makes the first picture.

I still like to hand wrap gifts. I'm not a great wrapper, but enjoy doing it. Polka dots are fun and your poem is good.

What a great mural! Thank you for sharing this capture.

I loved all your photos Carletta, from your husband's toolbox to that amazing wall mural, the bird in flight, those yummy muffins (sure wish I could have one now) and that sweet poem, what a lovely collection.
Have a great week,

Whenever I see trompe l'oeil I can't help but think, "how do they do that?" Yours has a wonderful scale that is perfect for 4th of July. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

Rose said...

Love that mural...someone is very, very talented!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Love the mural and how perfect for the 4th (and later and, of course, any day ever). You did beautifully on the hunt. Bill loves old tools and I guess our son or son in law have his collection now (because they're hard to take with you when you travel).

Craver Vii said...

I think my favorite is the vintage tools, but the rest are so good, too! I'm impressed at how sharp the pic was with the flying bird.

Marie said...

PERFECT Scavenger hunt! The box with the poem was especially neat! Gorgeous mural! Wow!

I missed this when you posted this....my, I have apparently been lax in my following....great shots, all!
