August Scavenger Hunt

August seems to have come and gone very quickly, anyway, here are my pictures. 

Moving

My solar powered fountain.  Chuck it in a bucket of water and you're off!  It even works in the rain!












Boxes

I was struggling on this one and then remembered my thread boxes.  The colours make me happy.












Starts with a D.

The Dog.  Bonkers.


Breakfast

I'm usually a porridge girl but on the really hot mornings this summer I forsake that for granola outside with a book.


Making

I'm not sure I could contemplate life without making.  I am really into embroidery at the moment.

My Own Choice

A walk by the canal with my 14 month old granddaughter.  I am on granny duty once a week and weather permitting we always go here.  She loves the water.


As always, a massive thank you! to Kate for organising.  I'm off here to see what everyone else has come up with.

  3. Canal walking, one of my favourites. Like you I would find life hard if I was not making something. Why didn't I think of my boxes of lovely coloured threads? Must think harder next time.

  4. Lovely pics! I agree with you on the porridge being too hot in summer...have you tried overnight oats? Almost like porridge only cold and with other yummy bits added - its a summery staple here!!!

  5. Lovely pictures. I've seen those solar bird bath fountains advertised on Facebook but our bird bath is not wide enough. Your canal picture is lovely but for me goofy dog is best!

  6. I like the solar fountain, I must see if I can get one from somewhere - something simple like that would be great in my garden :) The book in the pic is one I got a while ago after reading the previous one but I've not got round to reading it yet. I like the canal walk pic but my favourite has to be the dog, it really made me lol :)

    1. The fountain was dead cheap from Amazon I really like it. I didn't realise there was a previous book, must look out for it. CN x

    2. The Cornish Cream Tea Bus, it's a sort of prequel to the Cream Tea Summer book. I can also recommend A Christmas Tail, The Canal Boar Cafe and The Once In A Blue Moon Guesthouse all by the same author :)

  7. Great solar fountain, I could even do that! Floss colours and using them are always a happy sight. Your sweet pup looks like ours when he's smiling, adorable! What a lovely place to walk, lucky you.

  11. I saw that solar fountain advertised but I was reluctant to buy it because I had no feedback from anyone who had used one. It looks good in your photo...I'll check it out again now:-) Love the doggie snapshot LOL! Walking with your grand-daughter by the canal sounds perfect to me.... enjoy!! keep well Amanda :-)
