Scavenger Hunt Sunday

This seems to be all I can manage at the moment! I just have not had time to craft for ages but I am going to Burnice's tomorrow so maybe I will have something pretty to show you then!
Meanwhile on with this week's offerings. One out of the archives for "In the Mirror". Last year we had an art and science week at school and the children did a lot of work using concave and convex mirrors as "Sky Mirrors" This is the sky in the playground...

For "Close up" I had some lovely shots of a peony in my garden with raindrops on it but not one was in focus for some reason! Still we have another rainy shot as that seems to be all the weather we have had since they announced a hosepipe ban! This is my washing line...

My clock in the lounge for "Time". We had this as a wedding present 22 years ago and it chimes every quarter. Annoying to vistors but we don't even hear it now! Check out the accidental-but-rather-cool-reflection in the bottom of the shot! That's me and the lounge window!

Being a Brit I wasn't quite sure what a "sidewalk" was. Is it a proper pavement with kerbs and everything or is it just any old pathway? Can it be a path through a wood for example or does it need to be next to the road? I plumped for the middle option; a tarmac path that runs up the side of my house that we walk the dogs up every day.

Lastly is "inspiration". Well what could I photograph for this as everything inspires me! It could be a word, a song, something my children say but in the end I decided that if I need to seek inspiration this bookcase is where I go. Messy, but it's where my papercraft, sewing, quilting, knitting, crochet, cross stitch, cookery, gardening and any other hobby type book lives.

your INSPIRATION looks like mine does. I'm afraid to organize or clean my mess because then I wouldn't be able to find anything. YES, your interpretation of a SIDEWALK can be all those things you mentioned. What is nice is that your SIDEWALK is just love-ly & very different than mine.

Don't you hate when you look at your pics and a really good one is not in focus. Like your mirror with the sky.
