Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro on Monday (11/19/12)

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

1) Vision
Jake and I don't wear any kind of glasses or contacts, but this little guy does. You can get your own over here.

2) Strong
I've been making lots of button magnets and rings this past week for my final 2012 holiday shows, which has involved using a lot of E-6000.

3) Buttons
These bracelet design has been doing well this fall so I've been photographing and tagging all of the newer button bracelets that have been sitting in my "to photograph" box forever. Whatever doesn't sell during the next few weeks will be available in my shop by early 2013. Let me know if there is anything that you want.

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

4) Map
It drives me crazy how many people rely solely on GPS and smartphone devices to get driving directions. It is very difficult to learn your way around a new place that way. This is almost always what my directions look like when I'm going somewhere new. I look up the directions and check the map before I write down the directions.

5) Favorite Fruit
I took this picture back in the summer when the fresh fruit choices were much more abundant. This one of my favorite guilty summer pleasures: fruit with sour cream.

Here is your weekly does of Angel.
This is one of the last pictures that I took before we got the Halloween decorations taken down and stored away for next year.

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

Where Else I Linked Up Today:


  1. I'm one of those GPS-only people, and it's totally bitten me in the butt a few times. Now I've gone back to writing it down, too.

    That little guy with the glasses is adorable! I've worn glasses or contacts since I was 5; you're lucky to not need them yet!

  2. I LOVE that glue! it is my go-to stuff when dealing with wayward beady projects! and discovered that it works well on beach glass :O

  3. I got my first pair of glasses aged 13. I wish I didn't need any!
    Angel has found herself a cosy corner in the living room :)

  4. Great pic of your map...My maps look the same! I don't use GPS - those things confuse me (they're not always right). I always write down my directions. =0)
    I also love your fruit photo. Mmmmm....

  5. PS - Now following you on networkedblogs too. =0)

  6. I want that fruit. Looks awesome. I've not had anything to eat yet today.

    There's my baby too. Now this post is complete.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  7. I see that Angel is not intimidated by the HUGE spider!
    I love summer fruit the best.

  8. Lovely photos, great macro-post!

  9. the fruit looks delicious and the Angel picture is so cute. I noticed the spider right off. Buttons! That's right down your alley! Haven't used the E-6000 before - I'll have to keep an eye out for it! {:-D

  10. Nice photos this week! I'm with you- I always look up directions and write them down. M always makes fun of me for not even printing them, but I want them written the way I want them!! LOL. Now that I've got an iphone, it's easier not to do it that way, but I still need to study the map to know where the heck I'm going!

    Are those plums on that sour cream? That's one of my favorites too!

  11. E-6000 is awesome stuff.
    I don't use GPS at all. I usually look directions up on mapquest and then print them out.

  12. I've never heard of E-6000 but sounds like I need to! I write down directions unless we're out and about and need to find something and then obviously all I have is the GPS or my phone. Angel finds the funniest spots to nap! She's so cute!

  13. Your little spectacled guy is cute :)
    I'm guilty of using my phone to get me to new places!
    Is Angel on the mail floor? She found a cozy little place to nap :)

  14. Look at that pillow! I love it! Great pictures too.

  15. Hi there - found your blog through Ann's Snap Edit Scrap... am so glad Ann introduced you. Love your blog! :)

  16. Love your grab bag of thoughts here...the shot of summer fruit made me a little sad that it's November though!

  17. I do the same thing as far as maps.. I have to write it down! Thank you for sharing more of your pretty photos :)

  18. Great photos Rose! Your button bracelet is very cute and I love the colors. I'm with you, I would much rather write down the direction then use GPS, at least that way I know I will be able to find my way back.
