Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro on Monday (5/21/12)

Welcome to another edition of the photo Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro!  Enjoy!

1) Rainbow
I have two big boxes of buttons like this.  The other one has a more random assortment, but the organizer in me had to arrange part of this one in rainbow order.

2) Fluffy
A few people commented that I haven't included Angel in a few weeks so here she is again.  Often my best opportunities to photograph her aren't when I have my camera in hand so sometimes I shoot these Angel pictures with my phone.

3) Letters
I love sending mail almost as much as I love receiving it.  We recently got invited to a med school graduation for an old family friend.  Unfortunately there's no way that I can go to the ceremony or party so I sent her a little card.  I made that envelope for my magazine article.

4) Metal
I'm sure it's not a surprise that I use a lot of jump rings for some of my jewelry designs.

I'm also using this as my submission for I Heart Macro this week.

5) Tree(s)

I took a little excursion to the park this week after I had to run an errand in this area.  See the baby geese?

I took a picture in almost this exact spot back in the fall.

Check out Ashley's blog to see what other people submitted for the themes this week.

Finally, don't forget to check out my May Photo a Day Challenge Board on Pinterest.  I'm continuing to get that updated at least once a week and will share the highlights from that challenge here at the end of the month.
