About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

2014 Scavenger Hunt - Part 03

Woke early (before 5am) so thought I'd pop out to the Racecourse (Epsom) to see if I could catch a good #13 Sunrise photo.You get a great view of London from up on the Downs but as for the Sunrise, not today!

But wait a minute this would fulfill the #07 Rural Landscape nicely.

I had to console myself with a #03 Bird on a "Signpost" (there were two Magpies initially but I wasn't quick enough) and a flurry (20 in all) of #17 Lamp posts.

On the way home I spotted lots of wires for the Bird on a Wire photo, but they weren't playing ball at 5am either.

I think it is back to bed for me now!

Lovely pics. Are those stairs or a drainage grate? Oh my a rather confusing sign, hmmm. Hope you were able to catch a few winks when you got home. Hugs

I never thought of lamppost being one of THOSE types. I have one of those that sits directly across the street from me, and were it not for my one and only tree, it would shine right into my office at night, as it does in the winter, where the light is actually welcome.

Love your bird on a signpost. I must have copied it wrong, because I thought it was on a wire. Glad I can now look elsewhere than my back yard!

Thanks for the J52 update, especially since I get NOTHING from e-mail, and don't even use (or check) it anymore.

I have to admit, you have some lovely photos!

My house was built, according to the deed. in 1920. It's one of the oldest houses on the block, along with one other that was built at the same time. The rest of the houses were built between 1948 and the mid-50s. At least, that's according to my previous neighbor. But I live in a very well established neighborhood, where many of the trees are older than the houses.

Thanks again for the prompt. I gave you credit because I still can't get on the J52 site. Mine is up, and I certainly appreciate your help making it so!!

And no, we call the fancy ones "lamp posts," while the kind you showed we call "street lights." The first is mostly decorative, while the second is quite functional, keeping people from getting hit at night.

Oh my!Sorry that the Hunt gave you such frustration!
