Scavenger Hunt

1. Lace

True, this is not a lace made of fabric. In fact, I don't know what it's made of, perhaps it's scrollwork cut from wood. It edges the roof of a cottage next to a woods, and  seems quite appropriate there. Isn't the shadow magical?

2. Bling

For the most part, I'm not into bling unless it's created by Nature.  I read somewhere that "bling"  originally meant the imaginary sound created by light reflecting off a diamond.  I'm hoping you think the light sounds just as amazing reflecting off ice crystals.

3. Wood

 This tree stump now sits on a Lake Ontario beach.

4. Fuzzy

I have grown quite fond of these fuzzy critters. These two muskrats seem easy going and are quite friendly with the local Canada geese and mallards.

5. Fabric

I'm not sure what the first Maple Leaf flags were made of but this appears to be a polyester knit.

Judy said...

I'd say it looks close enough to call it lace, especially the shadow :)

Great series, the muskrats do seem very sociable too!

I love the wooden lace. I would love to see such lace IRL but I'll settle for now with your pic.

Your bling is very creative.

There is something attractive about washed up old stumps and the muskrats are great.

Thanks for sharing!

Michelle said...

Excellent takes on the subjects!

Small City Scenes said...

All excellent finds for your hunt. I specially like the lace and bling. Of course fuzzy is always cute. LOL MB

I like your bling, too...can think of a few ideas myself now that you nudged me.

Like your other finds for the scavenger hunt, too.

I'm always amazed at your cleverness in finding the hunt cues. I believe my favorite this week is "bling"!

Pamela Gordon said...

Interesting choices this week EG. I like that 'lace' on the cabin. I wonder if it's metal. Have a great week. Pamela

You did a fabulous job! This is so much fun to see what people come up with, and I love your mostly nature-oriented results!

Nice...I love the muskrat. Sorry about the video on my blog...I have changed it to public.

Jack said...

It is a clever take on these five items.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

The muskrat is too cute! I'm smitten. Love the crystal and that trim on the cottage. Wonderful shots for SHS!

Nita Davis said...

Great interpretations! I do think your bling is probably closer to the meaning of bling than mine. I went with the theory that bling adds to an object to enhances and capture the eye.

edenhills said...

Your interpretations are fantastic! I love the lace scrollwork. I agree nature's bling is the best!

Jessica said...

Great bling photo! I love how the light is reflected off the ice!

Love the ice crystals and the muskrats!!

These are remarkable. And yes, I love the lacy shadow on that first one.
