July Scavenger Hunt Photos

Here are my photos for July.  I had very much fun playing in the mosiac maker and other fun things you can do to your photos.  I really want photo shop now!!!
Thanks Kathy for hosting, this is so much fun!!!

1.  A Flag

2.  A Kite
Didn't have a chance to be creative, so just took a picture of a book I want to read, Kite is in the upper right hand corner (Plus the word Kite)

3.  A Celebration
My Dad's Birthday is in July

4.  Fields
Top Two taken in July of a Cornfield
The bottom four were taken last year, from the Parkway overlook in Charlottesville, VA

5.  Flip Flops
Two Flip Flop Keychains that I have, one is from VA and says Don't bother me I'm Crabby, and the other one is from NY Princess (A nickname I aquired)

6.  Ice Cream
The picture of the ice cream is mine, It is really Italian Vanilla Custard, YUM!!!

7.  Red White and Blue
I have been going thru our craft supplies and found these beads

8.  Sea Shells
A few of the shells I own.  The middle one says Hawaii.  I have had that shell since about 1982!!  Bought it while my dad was stationed in Hawaii.

9.  Something that makes you happy
Fun Yarn (especially when I only paid $2.00 for all you see here), and my favorite crochet hooks to work with  Clover ergonomic (really helps with my arthritis)  My "I" was otherwise engaged!!  I love to do lots of different types of crafts, but this is my main one I've been doing for a while now.

10.  Stars
The top two pictures are actually taken inside at a candle factory.  The whole area was decorated.  This part like night with stars and another part actually was blue skies with clouds.  The bottom two pictures are various craft stars I came across while going thru our craft supplies.

11.  Strawberries
The top three pictures are of some plastic strawberries I have.  Strawberries didn't have a very good season here this year.  They were finished in early June.  The bottom picture is a homemade strawberry ice cream pie, I had to stop my crocheting to eat this piece of pie.

12.  Stripes
Two of my crochet wips, my giant granny and my granny stripe.  In the middle is stripes I covered a vase with--striped leggings that I bought at the thrift store.  I guess I should have turned the light on in the room.  I thought with the window open it would have been light enough.  I actually had to open my window (very hot outside), then my window sill (the part that you can't see unless the window is open was dirty, so this polka dot place mat came in very handy to disguise that, sssshhh!!


  1. What a great set of photos!
    My favourite is the red, white and blue.

  2. Very creative photo presentations! Your crocheting is wonderful.
