May 20th Scavenger Hunt

Yeah, maybe not all these colors are in a real rainbow. 
But according to a favorite child’s song of mine, you do see “red and yellow and pink and green, purple and orange and blue”.  You can listen to “I Can Sing A Rainbow” here.
Yes, I may be stretching that one a bit. The two male cats here don’t want to be called fluffy.
This fluffy snack is a favorite here.  With butter.
I finished this sampler in 1984. Found the pattern in a magazine.
It’s been almost that long since I have done any counted cross stitch.  Does anyone do that anymore?
These buckets make great planters. They are from a farm supply store, and we drilled drainage holes in the bottom.  I have thyme in the front one, sage in the back one.
This old oak in the back yard of a neighbor’s house is so majestic. It seems to tower above all the other trees, and holds stories I would love to hear. I would have been the kid at that house that climbed the tree as often as possible.  How about you? Were you a tree climber?

  1. I was a tree climber. You could climb that and lose yourself in those branches! I can't remember the last time I've seen a kid in a tree….maybe it's a lost art. It makes me want to go out and climb!

  2. Never did climb trees…but I did a lot of needlepoint. I've been wanting to start up again…but it's easier to find cross stitch patterns than needlepoint. Love these!

  3. I'm with you – that "fluffy" treat is pretty much a nightly occurrence at our house. And I also did lots of counted cross stitch in the 80's. That majestic tree is rather amazing – love your crop. My sister was the tree climber – she was shy and would hide up in the tree branches playing with her Toggles (the 70's version of Legos).

  4. Totally a tree climber! Love your metal shot and "Sing a Rainbow" was a song I always taught to my 3rd grade level. So beautiful when sung by young voices. Happy day Deborah.

  5. Your photos are lovely. The crochet is fantastic (love the colors) and this tree… wow, so huge ! Thank you for having stopped by my post 🙂

  6. Another great set of images! I love the metal planters! Also, love the tree, very majestic! To answer your question, I started cross stitching in the early 70's and still stitch once a year. I stitch Christmas ornaments that I give to my children and grandchidren! I started giving ornaments when my children were young. That's a lot of ornaments over the years! Hope you have a wonderful week!

  7. Very good set. Such a colorful Afghan for your Rainbow Shot.
    My top pick has got to be that magnificent tree.

  8. How fun these are, your so creative on these hunts. You know the tree has to be my favorite and no I was always afraid to climb so you can climb and I'll wait at the bottom for you,lol… it truly is magical though!!
