Octobers Hawthorns Scavenger Photo Hunt.

Well here I am with my Octobers  choices. Some of these  are a  little old  but hey ho ,all in the spirit of  the list.
1.Making

The most of a sunny afternoon  walk today with the dog.In the fields  looking toward  Portland.



2.Empty.
Oh dear it is getting worse ,started small and getting  bigger, nice while it  lasted.


3.Starts with an F.
A
A photo  of the fireplace in the Drovers Inn near Loch Lomond  in Scotland. Really a fascinating  place  ,we visited  when  we went to the Outer Hebrides.

4.Paper.


A different use for old  paper  back books.

5. Neat.
A friend stitched this  for  me as part of  a Halloween  exchange  and it is pretty neat for our October  scrapchallenge.
Pretty neat stitching too.


6.Street.
The view down our street from the gutter.

7.Kettle.
We went to a pub  for lunch yesterday and it just so happens   this row of   kettles  were on   the windowsill.

8.Unexpected.
My grandaughter Ella  who is  now almost  18 ,  this was taken  during  an unexpected and  for us unusual fall  of snow.

9. Vase.

This was blown  by my other half,  he did a glass blowing course locally as  a birthday present from  our daughter.  I have not  dared  use it as a vase  yet.

10. Own choice.
A very sleepy Effie after her walk.
Thanks Kate  for the opportunity to  do this again   this month .I am  sorry I did  not get round to leaving comments last month but tomorrow  I will be  seeing everyones photos ,really looking  forward to it.  
Barbara.

Love your selection of photos. So sharp and clear. I must try to sort out my photo skills. My favourite is the Making one; so sunny and such a lovely place. We've had loads of rain of late and are fed-up with it. Lucky you to see all those kettles when you went for lunch.

Barb, I love looking at your photos and the one with the 3D book thing is very interesting looking. Your other half does beautiful glass blowing. I love how the colors swirl. Effie just looks so relaxed and sleepy after her walk. Sure does look like she is settling in quite nicely and I'm sure you both love her so much.
Hugs from over the pond, Barbara

I'm enjoying everyone's vases which I thought would be the least amusing. Your husband made an amazing vase! What a great gift idea,

Susan Smith said...

Love your photos and especially your walk. As Kate has mentioned, the vases have been amazing. Maybe you could use yours for a dried arrangment or paper flowers. Your pub lunch came in handy for the photo hunt(giggle). Your dog is beautiful & you've a clever hubby. Have a great weekend & take care.

Ooh I love your vase - that is beautiful - your hubby has a real talent.
Wouldn't it be nice to have another unexpected drop of snow this year - it makes everything so quiet.

Love that vase. It's beautiful. What a thoughtful birthday present. I agree Effie snoozing is my favourite picture too. Wonder if she is dreaming of a lovely walk. Sorry comments so late this month.
