Scavenger Hunt Sunday

The rules are simple:
  1. Anyone can participate.
  2. You’re encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge. Creativity is also encouraged!
  3. If you get stumped, you may use one photo from your archive (although I’m not too strict about it – I do my best to take fresh shots).
  4. Link up here on Sunday (or Tuesday at the latest) – you can use the button above.
  5. Leave comments for at least five entries around yours (with so many new participants each week, it’s the only way I know to be inclusive).
  6. Have fun!

This is my second time participating in this photo meme and I have to tell you that I love it. Next to hunting birds this has become my favorite thing to do all week. It is fun! I was amazed last week at the creativity everyone used in interpreting the list of items we are to find and photograph. Here's my interpretations for this week.

4. Recycle

Walter and I found this solid cast iron bottom to an old wood burning cook stove while living in Maine. It was half buried in the ground, it was solid rust, covered in muck, it had no top and it weighed a ton and, still does. We found it while hiking in the woods across from our home. Somehow we managed to dig it out and get it back to our house where it stayed in our wood shed for years.  Our youngest daughter and husband managed to sneak it out and refinish it. They cleaned it, added a top, added decorative wood burning, coated it several times with   Polyurethane, and gave it to us as a Christmas present. That was almost twenty years ago and it's still our favorite table. We use it as a coffee table in our den. 

They did all of the wood burning themselves, Mallards for Walter, flowers for me and a heart for love!
We love it!

5. People Watching
But then again who's watching who?

~Blessings to all for a great week!~
