May Scavenger Hunt

The end of the month already? It can only mean one thing, another scavenger hunt post is due.
One of the items to snap this month was 'nine'. This one I failed at. And the reason is silly. You see we live at number 9 and all month I kept thinking I'll just pop outside and photograph the number of the wall. All month I have failed to do so, so we are nine-less.

Here are the rest.

Good things- a stretch out on the bed with an added treat of a tickle is high on the list of good things for Melvin Cat.


Small packages- this wee wee package was originally stuck onto a Christmas tree decoration which broke. It now lives on the dresser.



Fragrance- I bought some flowers from Sainsbury's last week. The bouquet contained a flag and was named 'A Little bit of Chelsea'. The fragrance was gorgeous.



Station- the local train station we travelled from last weekend. Lovely old building.



 Nose- This was the first photo I took for this month's hunt whilst at Homebase. Love these little doggies sat nose to nose.





Front page- the front page of a newspaper from 1924 which we discovered in an old wardrobe and I blogged about here.



Beverage- bit of a cheat as I took this photo last month, but like the box so much and seeing it's Jubilee weekend on the way thought I would use it again.




Currency- One of my favourite purses. The address is so sweet and contains Pennies.



Historic- at Salisbury station I picked up a free copy of the Wiltshire View magazine. Inside was a fascinating article about a group of incredibly brave men who gathered information about the beaches in France right under the noses of German soldiers. Fundraising is in place to erect a memorial to these men. You can read more about them here.



Yellow- this chap was from the Friends of the Earth and was manning, or should that be beeing?, a stall at the Spring fayre we went to. 



Can you see what I see?- I was a bit stuck on this, but I hope this one fits the category ok. A little splash of red and black in amongst all that green is easy to spot. No pun intended!


Big thanks as ever to Kathy for organising us such a great list. I always enjoy seeing what everyone else has found.

Hi Lisa, I love your noses, and the station. I have a very similar purse to yours. I love it, but it has so many pockets I keep losing things in it!

Ha ha, when you said you'd missed out on the nine, and I saw the photo of Melvin Cat, I thought you were going to have that as 'nine lives'!

Jo said...

A wonderful set of photos. You could, of course, have had Melvin Cat as your number 9 too seeing as cats have nine lives. He's enjoying his tickle. What a cute address on the purse.

I love your selection of photos for this month. The station is lovely and I also like the yellow one, it reminds me of when I used to get in Friends of the Earth campaigns.

Doesn't the chugger look depressed - not as bright and beautiful as his t-shirt at all! The purse is lovely and might inspire a bit of crafting if I get myself organised (I mean for christmas, but even this is a long shot!). Lovely photos, as ever, ellen x

The purse was absolutely amazing. I liked all of your photos - great job.

Lovely photos, I love the contented cat but is the man in yellow having a miserable day or is he just concentrating on the job in hand?
