Scavenger Hunt Sunday- Photography

Another week and no news on the adoption front.  What better to do than keep myself occupied than with the Scavenger Hunt Sunday?  Here are my interpretations for this week!
Button:  I spend a lot of time with these buttons.  Probably too much time...

Favorite Fruit:  I live in the Midwest and I get so excited for this time of year because that means Honey Crisp and Granny Smith Apples!

 Map:  When I was 20 years old, I promised myself every year I would go somewhere I've never been whether it be domestic or international.  I've kept that promise to myself so far and one of the ways I keep track is by highlighting where I've gone in the book 1,000 Places To See Before You Die.  Oh, and that's a bookend I picked up in Nairobi :)

Strong:  I trolled Craigslist for months to find this 1906 beauty!!  However it took 5 really big guys, a lot of sweat and even more determination to get it into my house.  Times like these I'm glad I'm a woman :)

Vision:  I grew up playing the piano.  I'm SO THANKFUL my mom made me learn.  My vision is that my sweet Munni will learn to play!

 Happy Sunday!!

  4. A great set of photos - especially the piano keys! We moved two pianos so I know what a job that is.

  6. What a beautiful series. I, too, chose a TV remote for buttons b/c I spend too much time with them :) The piano is gorgeous and I'm thoroughly jealous that it's in your house instead of mine :D

  8. I know that "joy" of piano moving. I always feel bad for the people doing it. I think it's great the challenge you made to travel. why didn't I think of that? My fave is the fruit shot. Beautifully done.

  12. I use "1,000 Places to See" as my guide to future travels as well. AND..."To Kill a Mockingbird" is my fav all-time book. Are you sure you didn't sneak into MY house and take photo???? :)
