November Scavenger Hunt

Better late than never, here are my photos for the November Scavenger Hunt organised by Greenthumb.  Many thanks for organising this yet again!

Before you look at my attempts I have to admit that I failed miserably to take new photos for every prompt, so quite a few are from my archives.  Sorry!!

boxes - from the house move, all sorted now though (archive)

bread - one of my money boxes with some 'bread' on the table
in front of it!

5 - a very old, faded playing card (archive)

gold - detail on one of my 'not very clean' candle holders

happiness - one very happy young man!

pair - a pair of fingerless mittens I bought for playing out with the band when we are carol playing.  
So far they have been a waste of money because we've played out twice
and I've forgotten to wear them both times!

park - Southwick Country Park (archive)

pattern - brightly coloured game pieces from Continuo

rain - raindrops on a metal handrail (archive)

staircase - looking down the main staircase at Stourhead (archive)

sunset - looking down the Close from the front of the house (archive)

traffic - taken from the pedestrian bridge over County
Way in Trowbridge (archive)


  1. Fun photos anyway! Could you keep the mittens in your instrument case?

    1. Good idea, but not enough room unfortunately.

  2. Great the rain drops and staircase...but I REALLY want one of those Bread Money Boxes!!!! Where did you get it, if you don't mind me asking???

    1. Ced bought it for me from an antiques market in Castle Combe. On the back it says 'Madrigal Stoneware, Made in England' if that helps. I've seen them for sale on eBay from time to time so you may be able to buy one.

  3. Thanks for taking part in this months scavenger hunt, I don't mind when you put them in or if you use old photos. You have some great photos, rain, staircase, sunset. Greenthumb.

  4. I love your sunset photo, and the staircase!

  5. I'd rather see old photos than none at all and you have some lovely ones. I really like gold and the sunset is amazing. My favourite though is rain. x

  6. Oooh your sunset is exquisite! The staircase is very clever too! I remember the coldness of playing with my youth wind band every year outside the townhall- brrrr those gloves definitely needed! What instrument do you play again? X

    1. With the band I play tenor horn, but teach all the new beginners regardless of their chosen instrument.

  7. Eileen.. great photos! It's funny, my American brain immediately noticed something askew for me at your picture of traffic. Strange how the brain sees the difference between your traffic pattern and ours! Your sunset was lovely, but I think "rain" was my favorite...very cool photo! Oh, can you use a ribbon to tie your mittens to the outside of your instrument case? Am sure your carols are lovely, warm hands or not! Smiles...Susan
