Scavenger Hunt Sunday

shs again!
long week, so my prompts were kind of thrown together!
hope everyone has a great weekend and a blessed Easter Sunday!

tulips are blooming and beautiful!

one of my new textures i painted this past week.
these words explain 'life' to me.

as much as i LOVE spring blossoms and the newness of the season, my allergies do not. if it's not the pollen it's the fragrance that gets me. BUT i don't let that stop me from shooting, i just do it with a stuffy nose!

this was my first pink prompt..
but then..

i was driving home from the grocery store on Saturday afternoon and happened to see this!
i mean, how many pink trains do YOU see?
had to go home, get my camera, and drive back.
i really need to start having it with me at all times!

i was knitting about a week and a half ago. a hat on circular needles. i was loving the color and texture that was being woven together. i was almost ready to decrease, which is pretty close to the end of the hat and i noticed something looked a little odd.
shouldn't it have been 'obvious' to me that i somehow twisted it around and was knitting it in a twisted twirl?
i tried to undo..
but that is a frustrating task for me!
so..this is what's left of my hat!
can't wait to see everyone finds!
would LOVE to hear from you.


  1. I have to say that has to be the best train I've ever seen. Not only do I love shooting trains, but I'm always looking for an unusual one. And you found it! Awesome!

    1. Thanks so much!!!! I know, I had to do a double take when I saw it!!!

  2. I like your texture work on your 'life' shot and can completely appreciate the turn about on pink to include the pink train car.

  3. FABULOUS set of photos! I absolutely love the Life image. Have a wonderful Easter!

  4. a PINK train car... and OBVIOUS are my faves!

  5. You really have a wonderful set here. It's honestly hard for me to pick a favorite. Love the picture of the inside of the tulip as well as the dandelion photo with the lyrics. Really, really good job.

  6. I love the trains!!! We used to see quite a few in our hometown in Indiana, but since we moved to the north side of town 5 years ago, we luckily don't have to cross the tracks very often. After you have waited for a triple to go by (at least 10 minutes or more), trains are no longer your friend. But they are very interesting to look at and fun to photograph, aren't they.

  7. Love your life shot . . . just gorgeous.

  8. I love new, fragrant and pink! So pretty.

    My son would have loved that pink train! His favorite colors are pink and purple.

  9. Great set.
    New is just divine!
    Loved Your Life
    and oh my a "Pink" that is unusual and a lot of fun.

  10. Love the processing on life and that beautiful dogwood.

  11. Beautiful shots! I love the pink train!

  12. Love the quote you chose for the dandelion. Very fitting.
