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.

Scavenger Hunt - Part 05 - Urban/Mascot/Bakery

Here's a few of my Scavenger Hunt photos.

#06 An Urban Street Scene - Carshalton in London - one from one side of the pond and one from the other. The road goes along the edge of the ponds and one goes across the middle too.

We happened to visit on 4th August 2014 which was the day of commemoration of the start of WWI 100 years ago, so poppies abounded on all the railings, it was lovely to see.

I am thinking the Poppy will be my #12 A Mascot as it certainly is a  strong emblem of remembrance.

#09 A Bakery. I took these ages ago on my new phone and they weren't downloaded to the PC for a while then I forgot about them, until now.

Carshalton looks so pretty, I always imagined it as an urban sprawl! Lovely to see so many poppies too and a lovely idea to use them for 'mascot' xxx

I can't believe how far behind I am visiting you. These are lovely photos. I was definitely drawn to the poppies, and was surprised at how long it's been since WWI, and yet we don't seem to learn when it comes to wars. This was a lovely view of the ponds and the poppies. Very, very impressive. Nice take on the bakery, too.

BJ you are doing incredibly well with your scavenger hunt, I have only just managed to post my first few, and they are nothing like as good as your.
