Christmas Advent Scavenger Hunt 2017



Just a mid-month reminder its that time of year again to get ready for the 
Christmas Advent Scavenger Hunt 2017

Please say you will join me again by putting twenty-four little Christmas pictures on your blog as if it were an Advent Calendar?  

There are no rules.
Its just a little Scavenger Hunt leading up to Christmas.

If you would like to join and think oh........ I not going to manage to put something on everyday, then play catch-up when you have a spare few minutes I don't mind, its meant to be fun!

Friday 1st December is the day we start opening doors on the Advent Calendar or in our case one picture per day for the blog posts.  

This year I thought I would take a leaf from Hawthorn's book, hope you  don't mind me copying Kate....... and have a Scavenger Hunt.

You put a different picture on everyday leading up to 24th December.  

  You can use your own photos, taken recently or from the family album/archive taken years ago, or use little films/cartoons from You Tube like I have done in the past.

The list is on the side panel

Please leave comment if you would like to join in, and I will list everyone on Wednesday 29th November and not the day I originally said otherwise it will clash with Kate's last Scavenger Hunt of the year

Unexpected

Vase
My "special" vase(s).
Black one with the daisies I brought back from when I stayed with my grandparents when I was a little girl from Woolworths with my pocket money for my mum in the 1960's.  The cranberry glass vase always sat on my grandmother's dressing table.  The tall brown one which holds my wooden and bamboo knitting needles belonged to my mum.  The little round Dartington glass vase  was given to me when I was forty by a friend, now holds wooden and bamboo crochet hooks and sock needles.   The hand blown lily in the centre I gave to my mum the day I got married.  You can just see part of the tubular base under the daisies


Own Choice
Whilst looking through old photos I found this collection of money boxes we own,
Think we have spy in the camp!


My kettle came from Lidls, but I think Russell Hobbs do one

Knitting Needles




I am very pleased that a well known charity shop (a famous chain one) took my knitting needles to sell in one of their shops without thinking I am giving them a lethal weapon yesterday.
