Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro on Monday (7/2/12)

Welcome to another edition of the photo Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro! I've also included my weekly update about my monthly photo challenge progress. Enjoy!

1) Sunset
I'm going way back in my archives for a couple of my photos today.  All of my best sunset photos are on trips.  Usually I see the sun set in the city behind buildings, and it's always inspiring to see it set behind the water.  I know that I shared a sunset photo from this trip a while back.  This is another sunset photo from a Mexico/Honduras cruise Dec 07/Jan 08.

2) Sweet
I made a peach crisp/crumble this past week.  I use the apple crisp recipe from How to Cook Everything.

3) Hanging Around
Angel is always checking out new areas of the house.

4) Funny Face
This is another way back in the archives photo.  Jake and I had disposable cameras at our wedding reception.  This was one of the best things ever.  We have so many priceless moments that our family and friends captured for us.  My bouquet kind of completely came apart when I threw it so all of the girls got to take part of it home with them.  Apparently it proved pretty inspirational.

5) Space
I've been getting back into gluing mode so I have some new items for my non-jewelry lines for the open house later this month.  When I took this picture, I had completely run out of space on this tray.

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

Here's my shot for I Heart Macro.

 The Monthly Photo Challenge Update: 
I wrapped up my June Photo a Day Board over the weekend.  Check out the final photos.  I'll get July up and running later this week!
Where else I linked up today:


  1. I definitely relate to the out-of-room image! I make some smaller things in large groups, too, and I hate it when I have to shift everything to make space for the last few. Bah!

  2. Your peach crumble looks delicious. I am definitely hungry now.

  3. I can never tire of sunsets. I love crumbles!
    The peaches are really good this year - you've inspired me
    to make one :)

  4. I like taking photos of sunsets and sunrises. And Angel looks comfy in that spot.

  5. That peach crisp looks delicious. I like the idea to give wedding guests disposable cameras. What a great way to capture all the wonderful moments.

  6. Looks like Angel found a sunpuddle under there! That peach crisp looks yummy! The sunset is so pretty! We have a rose that looks a lot like those right now.

  7. it sounds like your typical view of the sunset is just about like mine.
    The peach crisp sure does look good

  8. Beautiful pictures! Love the scavenger hunt idea too.

  9. I love water sunsets! Great idea for disposable cameras at your wedding. You've got two macros - the "sweet" looks delicious! {:-D

  10. the space pic took me a minute! ha ha! =) I want to see the other side! lovely sunset!

  11. I like your choice of subjects for the challenge. Bravo

  12. What a perfect post!
    I'd love to be eating peach crisp while watching the sunset. And have some good friends and Angel by my side :) Of course we'd watch from outside where the beautiful flowers are too!
