Photo Scavenger Hunt - March

Another month is almost over and finally the list in my purse has ticks beside every item. Thanks Kathy - you kept my eyes open this month.

Here's my offerings;

March roars in like a Lion - I was hoping Cambridge would produce a lion -it did - on one of the colleges.

An empty chair - this tatty lloyd loom one lives in our hall. I bought it for our first house with the intention of giving it a lick of paint - its never happened and 20 years later its looking more tatty than ever - perhaps this summer it will get some TLC.

A collection - just a small part of my russian doll collection - sitting happily on some fabric I bought at the weekend.

A gate - this is the original gate that is the entrance to my Grandma's house - a really heavy iron one.

Something green - the ivy growing on the garden wall.

As old as me - my little bear 'Orange' - he was given to me when I was a few weeks old. I was travelling on a train across Germany with my Mum and a salesman was sharing our carriage. He gave me this bear as I reminded him of his now grown up daughter. He's a tiny teddy just 4" tall.

Peeling paint - outside our post office.

A rainbow - no real rainbows this month but these rainbow raggies provide a burst of colour.

A ring - a birthday pressie from my littlest sister

Something sentimental - a jumper my Grandma knitted for big son - the yarn is so soft. Little son worn this too and its one of the few items of toddler clothing that I've kept.

A shadow - my bike - taken on the first sunny spring day we had.

March goes out like a lamb - a chocolate Aero one that was one of my birthday swap pressies - he tasted great :)

I wonder what treats Kathy has in store for us Scavengers for April??

See you soon

Great to see the first set appearing - your shadow one is lovely, and so is the empty chair! I'm still struggling with my rainbow; my kids have found great interpretations for some of the other items but we're a bit stumped with the rainbow one!

Hi There.
I am part of the birthday swap and just need to let you know that unfortunately I have been unable to afford to put any more parcels together for this month due to a string of bad luck on my funds. However I will be getting paid this weekend and shall be sending a belated birthday present to you next week :)

Lucy said...

Lovely, lovely, lovely photos! I look forward to reading more and sharing my blog with you too!

Lovely photo's Vicki ~ can I ask where the lovely russian doll fabric came from? Is it online?

Louise said...

That's a great shadow of your bike! Such a lovely story about the man on the train. You must really love that little teddy bear. x
