Photo Scavenger Hunt : August

It's time once again for the monthly scavenger hunt, organised by Greenthumb at Made with Love. I don't know about you but I found it really tough this month! I'm not saying this is the best selection of photos I've ever submitted but I did manage to find something for each category. Here's what I found.

W is for... : Windmill, spotted on a recent walk in Haigh. According to the information board, it was built in 1845 and was used to pump water.

5pm : Working on the border of a wall hanging.

Everyday : Oh how I struggled to think of something for this one! In the end, I decided on an everyday object, an old fork, which has been transformed into something of beauty - well, I think it's beautiful anyway.

Centered : The attention of these horses is completely centered on me and Chickpea. There are another 3 just out of shot and they were all totally fascinated with us. Unfortunately, a ditch and tall undergrowth meant we couldn't get any closer, though the one with the star on its forehead did try.

Peace : Wise words on a bench at Wycoller Country Park (photos from our visit coming soon).

Ball : Spotted in a Chinese restaurant where we were celebrating ours and a friend's very belated birthdays. The ball spins as water pours over it from the dragon's mouth. The sign over the ornament says 'Please do not touch the magic ball!'

Luggage : Suitcases for sale on a local market.

Under : Graffiti under the canal bridge.

On your shelf : My small collection of Freshly Caught Fairy Folk.

Something you do every day : Make several cups of tea! White, no sugar for me. White with two sugars for Chickpea.

Glitter : Glittery decoration on one of my birthday cards.

Sunglass : Chickpea posing in the garden in her sunglass(es).

If you'd like to join in with the Scavenger Hunt, you can find the categories and other entries over at Made with Love. x
