Amazingly we are at the end of another month  - November !

I can't believe how fast this month has gone.
This morning ( 30th ) I sat down and searched through my photos to see what I could cobble together for this month's Scavenger Hunt.
I like to do it this way. Just see what I can hunt out before I take any special photos.
This month I only had to take one - the lucky charm!

So here it is -
November's Scavenger Hunt.

1.  a poppy ( sorry poppies !)

Out shopping on 11/11/11

2. something purple

You can't go past a Jacaranda tree if you are looking for something purple at this time of year.

3. a silhouette

Looking out the window onto the beach at Mooloolaba.

4. comfort food

Only a memory now, it's salad time here!

5.  memorial

 WWII Battle of Britain bunker at Uxbridge kept as it was at the end of WWII as a memorial to the many airmen who saved Britain in those terrible days.

6. a staircase

Myers store in Sydney at Christmas a few years ago.

7. something that lights up

The ceiling of the Melbourne Crown Casino

8. something I've made

Food of course !!! Yummy!

9. polkadots

In my fabric stash for a future quilt.

10. a lucky charm

An Inukshuk - a souvenir from Canada. A symbol of friendship from the Inuit and their fellow Canadians.
You find versions of this scattered almost anywhere in Canada where there are rocks and travellers.
 I like to think they watch over and care for travellers.
I'm one of those - a traveller I mean !

He stands in the entrance of our home.

11. warmth

Plenty of that here at the moment !!!

12. a self portrait

Showing off my Christmas table runner.

That's it for another month.
