Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

Here are the prompts for this week's Scavenger Hunt:  sparkly, door, decorate, stripes, and a few of my favorite things.  And here is the way I see it this week:

SPARKLY didn't turn out as I expected.   This little bird looked pretty sparkly to me when I had him in the house but I think it was just too bright out for him to sparkle much.  Too much competition from the sun.  Still I like him so here he is:


DOOR.  Here's our front door with the wreath I have thrown on there for the last few years.  This wreath has held up like iron.  I like the contrast of the black and red.  That's fake snow, by the way.  I just think it looks a little more festive with the snow.


DECORATE:  I had to go to a meeting the other night and decided to go down to our Town Common to look at the tree that they decorate and light up each year.  I like the plaid effect.


STRIPES:  Natural striping on a birch tree.


A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS:

Love all your red, one of my favorite colors especially at this time of year. I should have added snow to my front porch shot...we haven't seen a lick of it yet. What an interesting plaid tree, I have never seen anything like that. Takes a lotta planning I suppose.

I like that bird too. Your front door is very welcoming - red on black (my high school colors) is always a hit with me. Great set Barb!
