Photo Scavenger Hunt - December - The Festive A-Z

Oh I do like a challenge and December's hunt has been one of those. A festive A-Z - I started taking pics at the beginning of the month and the last ones were taken on Christmas Day - see if you can guess which ones ;)

Make sure you're comfy - an A-Z means a long photo heavy (26 to be precise) post;

 A for Advent (candles)

 B for Brass Bands (playing carols).

 C for Christmas cake (made & iced by me).

 D for Door - this is a fairy door that Santa can also enter the house through ;)

 E for Elf - my sister dressed up at the Christmas event in town.

 F for Frost - we've not had many of these so far this winter. In fact christmas day was incredibly mild.

 G for Gloves - kept on the radiator so they are warm when needed.

H for Holly.

 I for Ivy - well what else can you have with Holly?

 J for Jokes - out of our christmas crackers

 K for King - hanging on our christmas tree.

 L for Lights - fancy camera effect ;)

M for Mince pies - first of many batches made by me this month.

 N for Nutcracker Soldiers - just some of my growing collection.

 O for Oranges.

 P for Parcels.

 Q for Queen - essential Christmas Day viewing.

 R for Radio Times - I only buy this at Christmas - a bit like sprouts ;)

S for Santa - spotted in town at the Christmas Fair

 T for Tree - surrounded by presents

 U for Unexpected gift from a friend.

 V for Vino or Vicki's vino if you prefer ;)

 W for Wreath - made by a clever friend.

 X for Kiss from me to you ;)

 Y for Yuck - some people don't like these - I do :)

 Z for Zrrrrrrrrrrr - MrVV after lunch on Christmas Day.

I think the Scavenger Hunt is continuing into 2012 - if it does I shall be part of it - makes me keep my eyes & mind open! Thanks again Kathy xxx

I've always wanted an advent candle and never had one, I have plenty of others though.
I see you'd got busy with the pinking shears too.
Sprouts are great!

Kashi said...

This was my favorite scavenger hunt that you have done. Great job! I am American and have seen the Christmas cakes all over blogland, can I ask what kind of cake it is? I am intrigued. I never ate one when I lived in London all those years ago. Happy Holidays.

G'Day Vicki,

Good onya, an ace job! I love your Advent candle - I haven't ever seen one of those before. Kudos to the Brass Band! Oh and your sister looks fab dressed up in the elf costume!!! It's hard to imagine frost and gloves at Christmas time, because it's Summer here in December. All your photos are amazing. Viewing them has given me much joy. God bless!

Cheers for 2012 - Happy New Year!
