Scavenger Hunt Sunday: 1st Edition

I have wanted to participate in this photo challenge for quite some time, but having a new baby has kept me pretty busy! But I decided to give it a shot, even if I don't end up with the "perfect" shots each week. Hope you like these!


The quilt we had on our bed was falling apart, which is not surprising since we got it for our wedding 8 1/2 years ago. So we bought a new coverlet that is light blue and brown. I love all the embroidered circles and triangles.

We had a bit of an art day this week. I put up the clothesline and put up a sheet for the boys to paint on. They had so much fun!

Hanging by a Thread
I discovered a new bead shop (the Bead Fairy), and I was in heaven! They have almost any kind of beads you could ever want and I spent way too much on all these hanging beauties!

My baby girl is now five months old! Can you believe it?!

On the Dotted Line

I had all sorts of ideas for this prompt, but did not have time to take any of those pictures. So instead you get a picture of big balloons on a string. I guess you could say it IS a dotted line!


  1. How fun! I used to participate every week, but things got hectic and I haven't gotten back in to it. Glad you did it!

  2. Awesome shots. Your baby girl is such a sweetie. Love the dotted line you found. All your shots are great. I had thought about having my girls paint to take the shot, but we had too many other things to do. I had a slightly different interpretation of brushstrokes.
    Glad you participated.

  8. Love the brush strokes pic in particular!!!

  9. Such sweet photos! I love the collage the best. Your little girl is adorable!

  10. Glad you joined in! :) As a Mom of 4 and a business owner and homeschooler, I didn't think I could do the link ups either. I found it encouraged me to get up and do things more. The kids I think have benefited from it. I know at 5 months it's different. But doing something for you will make you a better Mommy, because it makes you happy. :)
