Scavenger Hunt - March


An old silo.


An antique greeting card in my little collection.


The eye is the window to the soul.


A painting by my mother done in the 60's. I found this when clearing out her house, and just loved it. Mom was in the hospital with cancer at this point, and when I took it in to show her, she said yes, it was hers and she signed it for me. She told me it's a church in Combermere, Ontario, where she and my dad had their honeymoon.


A favourite skyline at Canisbay Lake, Ontario.

A Favourite Word

I've never thought about a favourite word, but a word that means a lot to me is the name of my favourite provincial park here in Ontario ... which happened to also be the name on our old canoe.


A Chickadee in flight taken with my phone!


When we had our ensuite bathroom remodeled a few years ago,
my husband made this lovely cherry vanity.


A lovely old Rolls Royce that was built the same year as my dad was born ... 1923. 
My dad happily posed beside it, I think he looks quite the part :)
(the photo was taken in 2011)


While on the topic of automobiles, I chose this Ontario license plate from 1919.

Ut incepit Fidelis sic permanet ...
"Loyal she began, Loyal she remains"

Something You Made

I finished knitting up this cabled cushion cover about a week ago.

Whatever You Want

My kids and I in Barcelona on a family holiday  :)

  20. Lovely collection of photos :) I like circle and movement!

  21. I really enjoyed your entries and the photos are lovely. Your cushion cover is fantastic - well done! :-)

  22. Hi September Violet! I enjoyed seeing your collection of photos so much! Circle was a spectacular photo ~ dramatic ~ In my mind it is ART! Your favorite word, Algonquin, really hits me. I have so many memories of the time I lived in Northern Ontario at Lansdowne House, Lac Seul, and Sioux Lookout. I now live on a street called Algonquian Court which makes me crazy because Algonquin is spelled wrong! Thanks for sharing the picture of you and your kids and your dad. It's always fun to see the person who is blogging ~ makes it more real somehow! Happy Easter!

  23. Algonquin is a very fun word. To say and see. Enjoyed your choices for the month and admire your knitting skills. I can knit, but I can't make it look good. How fun was that bird photo to get? I'd be thrilled.

  24. Uma linda coleção de fotos para a caça.Amei o círculo e movimento.
    Sua capa de almofada de tricô ficou linda.
    Gostei de ver sua foto com seus filhos em Barcelona.

  25. I love your photos but the standout for me is your mother's painting. I just love it.
    Anne xx

  26. Hi! How are you? Well, I hope! So glad to see this selection. I can't believe you caught that bird in flight like that! Amazing!!!! Such a lovely antique greeting card and I agree with everyone else, your Mum's painting is fab.xx
