Finishing the Wintertime Photography Scavenger Hunt

#14 afternoon tea
Springtime is here! And with it, the end of the Winter Photography Hunt, hosted by Eileen and Joy. I've made a pretty good go of it with this year's list (you can see my previous finds at this link):
1.   A robin redbreast - never found this one
2.   Tinsel
3.   Outside lighting
4.   A star
5.   A snowman
6.   A puddle
7.   Berries and/or nuts
8.   A wreath
9.   A tree that has lost all its leaves
10.  A windy day
11.  Your favourite pudding
12.  A fancy button
This is from one of favorite jackets.
13.  Street art
14.  Afternoon tea - above
15.  Candle light
16.  A chimney - I've been meaning to get down to the Harbor to take a picture of this construction site and finally made it:
I think it's so cool that the chimney has been left standing for this new/old house.
17.  A ladder
18.  An arrow
19.  A fountain
20.  Cutlery - I decide to photograph my silver that I got from my paternal grandmother.
21.  Your own handwriting (this one is compulsory and cannot be substituted)
Since I didn't find the robin, I decided to do one of the alternates: an animal statue. I photographed my Waterford swan that I've been using to sketch lately.
Thanks for hosting such a fun hunt! And I'll keep my eyes open for a robin redbreast.

A great finish to the WPSH. I like your drawings of your crystal duck & what beautiful silverware.

Now we all await your list for the SPSH :)

I love that free standing chimney breast it its like its waiting for the rest of the house to come and join it :)

Lovely collection, with a very creative take - what a chimney!

Great finds; the robin was definitely the hardest one for me as well, although I did get a (very poor) shot of one in the park with my phone. I kept hoping for a chance to take one with my DSL-R, but it's still too early for many robins to show up in our yard. Have a great week!

Super photos. Particularly like the sketches of your swan.

Lovely silverware and that chimney is remarkable. You will have to post a photo of the completed house!

Barbara said...

Well done! You have managed to find a good selection of photographs.

The silver from your grandmother is lovely! Such a treasure! Do you use it regularly or just for special occasions? I take out our silver only for special occasions which are very rare. I have to say that I treasure all the "old stuff" from my family, but most of all the christening gown from my great-grandmother. She was baptized in it in 1862. I was baptized in it as well as my daughter, and of course it will eventually go to my daughter's children.
