Scavenger Hunt

 a. Joy

Joy in looking and comprehending is nature's most beautiful gift.
~Albert Einstein

 b. tangled

Oh what a tangled web we weave
When first we practice to deceive!
~Sir Walter Scott

 c. Silver

Probably NOT the silver bell you think of this time of year, right?  Here are the lyrics about more famous silver bells:

Silver bells, Silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ting, hear them ring?
Soon it will be Christmas Day!
~Jay Livingston & Ray Evans

 d. Guilty pleasure

 A guilty suffering spirit is more open to grace than an apathetic or smug soul.
~Edna Hong

e. Angel

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.
~Michelangelo

Your gift to me is that quote from Albert Einstein. I might include it in a post of mine some day. I don’t recall seeing it before but it expresses how I and probably a lot of other bloggers feel. Merry Christmas Camera Girl. :)

I love your first photo and quotation but the tangled webs are most intriguing- was it one confused spider or a gang effort?
