Scavenger Hunt Sunday ~ February 17, 2013



How was your Valentine week?
I hope you haven't seen enough hearts and
candy because today's prompts for
Ashley Sisk's Scavenger Hunt Sunday
just shouted Valentine's Day.
 
This week's prompts were:
candy
pink or red
love
kisses
smile

 
candy
The classic Valentine candy.
Conversation hearts got their start in 1901.
 
 
pink or red
I know the prompt says pink or red,
but I'm giving you
pink and red.
First, the needle roll that I stitched several years ago is pink.
 
 
 
Second, a red heart.
I shaped this heart by breaking and placing small twigs on the ground,
then I changed the colors using the duo tone feature in Picasa.
 
 
Love
I love being outside and enjoying the beauty of nature.
 
 
kisses
These Hershey Kisses
are a delicious blend of
white chocolate and raspberry.
 
 
smile
I sent my grandsons a Valentine message on Facebook.
Thinking of them makes me smile.
 
Enjoy your day and spread a little love and kindnesss!

A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song 'til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay -
Love isn’t love
'Til you give it away.
~Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, "You Are Sixteen"

  7. Awww, that's a sweet selfie. I love what you did with the colorization of the sticks. One kiss? Or is that the only kiss we see? I like the composition of the candy hearts perfectly aligned.

  10. I love a Grandma who communicates via Facebook :) I can't believe that conversation hearts have been around since 1901, wow over a hundred years.

  13. Oh, I am happy to continue the Valentine's Day celebration with your images - I simply adore the candy shot - love the way you set it up - very creative. And how clever to create your own heart from sticks and then convert it in post-processing! Well done! A great love-themed set.
