Scavenger Hunt Sunday

This was a really fun hunt!  Maybe because I felt like I had enough time for each one and an idea...though time can be a detriment.  You'll see what I mean.  I cannot wait to see others for this week!  Hunts are just so fun...photography for a purpose!

Inspired by a Book or Movie:
I'm not 100% satisfied with my pictures or the collage, but I knew when I saw this prompt that I had the perfect thing to enter!  This is a shadow box (upper left corner) holding the letter I received from Hogwarts this weekend--the owl was very, very late because the letter came in a shadow box instead of an envelop.  (This was a birthday present from a very creative friend.  Since we do not yet have the two story library with spiral staircase and leather chairs, it will be hanging in our family room soon, close to our Harry Potter books.)

Brown:
I don't really have much to say about brown, except after choosing this photo I realized there are 3 sets of beautiful brown eyes in my family that I love a lot more than random decorations.

Hazy:
I'm a little hazy what hazy means, but I hope this counts.  I absolutely love this photo.

Tea:
It wasn't so much that I couldn't pick a favorite as each one was incomplete without the other.  Our tea party was more than one moment--finding in brother's left over lunch, moving, and "microwaving the corn nuts,"  borrowing Mommy's creamer because we couldn't find the tea pot, taking our princess dress off, getting the baby settled, and eating corn nuts with a spoon.

Linger:
I hear people like to linger over a good glass of wine.  I kind of figure that is because it doesn't taste good enough to drink fast.  But Sunday, my friend and I ducked into this wine shop in order to change lenses out of the wind, and ended up lingering for almost an hour taking photo after photo after photo.

I really do like the brown shot you took this week. It's cool.

Stasha said...

You might not be sure, but I tell you the first entry is perfect! Love the tea party and your hazy shot is stunning. I am not a wine drinker but I could kill an hour taking photos there too.

Fantastic set Cedar, what a lovely gift from a friend, beautiful feather and seal. I LOVE your tea party with your daughter, so gorgeous! The bokeh and light in your wine shots are gorgeous, love them.

Barbara said...

Love those linger shots, and the hazy is so pretty. The inspired shot is wonderfully creative. I was in a Harry Potter theme coffee shop called The Golden Broomstick in Stratford upon Avon last week!

Loving your first shot. What a great birthday present. The hazy shot is beautiful. I thought it was neat you also did a collage, though yours is for tea. what a little sweetie.
Thanks for stopping by Tots and me

ooh I love these shots. The focus in your "brown" shot is so perfect, the haze shot soo lovely, and I love your "linger" collage! Those bottles would make me linger too :)

Andrea Dawn said...

I would have to say you absolutely nailed the hazy shot . . . it is so beautiful. My favourite!

Kim Stevens said...

I'm absolutely loving your collage shots! Great set of photos.

Melanie said...

Each time I scrolled down, each photo became my new favorite! Now that is some good photography my friend. But I absolutely adore your tea time lovely girl! Such a fabulous collage! I wish I had a friend that would put up with me photographing a wine shop! I only have bloggy photo friends, Sadface.

Tamar SB said...

These are all awesome!! Love your movie/book pic - sooooo coool!!!! And your hazy, stunning! And love your brown, you should totally frame that!

Rosie@leavesnbloom said...

What a great set Cedar but my favourites are from the wine shop - I could have spent ages in there too capturing all of that gorgeous bokeh and doing close ups of the labels. A good glass of wine in my opinion is great to linger over.

Brooke said...

ohMYgosh! Wow. These collages are OUTSTANDING! Love your tea set - so darn cute. And linger too!

Ashley Sisk said...

How neat with the Harry Potter letters...very cool. And I love your hazy shot. Love.

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

Love the collages- both just pull me right in! That bottom one looks right out of a magazine ad.

Susan said...

Oh, love your Hogwarts letter and so want a library with a spiral staircase someday (or at least really cool ladders). Love your hazy and tea party collage as well. Then I saw the wine collage, such fun! Perhaps if you paired a nice red wine with a decadent piece chocolate cake, you’d understand why wine lovers linger. Delish!

Kathy said...

Great set this week! Your hazy shot is beautiful. But I'm totally diggin' your "linger" collage! Feel I should go have a glass of wine while lingering on the computer, it's 5:00 somewhere right? :)

Great set! LOVE hazy! Gorgeous! The tea party collage is so sweet! And I can see why you lingered in the wine store ... such great photo opportunities.

Misty said...

I really like the perspective on your Brown shot. I actually have my own weekly linkup going on right now called Favorite Photo of the Week Contest if you would ever like to join in. We would love to have you. :)

Deanna said...

Love the tea party, such a sweet collage, and your wine shop stop is amazing!!

Christine E-E said...

love your hazy shot! when I saw that word, I pictured foggy! so, imagine my surprise when I realized I could have posted a blurred edge picture. Love the colors in flower pic! And, your collages are fun (wine pics ~ could be put on a business card)...

Valeria said...

I love all your entries but linger made me understand the meaning of the word
