Scavenger Hunt Sunday (11/11/12 edition)...

Welcome to the "Penn State vs. Nebraska football refs STINK" edition of Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  No, I don't actually HAVE any photos to illustrate my theme here...does that really matter?  It's my blog and I'll cry if I want to.  I'm just gonna call it that because, well...THEY STINK.  Okay, got that off my chest.  Seriously, who needs therapy when ya have blog to vent?  Hmmmm, maybe an eensy weensy bit of therapy wouldn't hurt.

This weeks Scavenger Hunt prompts are:  Nature, Vintage/Retro, Whimsical, Cooking, and Week's Best/Favorite.

1.  Nature

(linked to:  Snapshot Sunday,)

This COULD be a leaf in Nebraska.  But it's not.

2.  Vintage/Retro

Boy what I would give to have a collection of these gorgeous vintage inspired bottles.   Not sure what I would actually do WITH them.  But that is besides the point.

These COULD be vintage bottles in an antique store in Nebraska...but it's not.

3.  Whimsical

What do you think?  Obviously a guy who didn't read the directions.

This COULD be an old red barn in Nebraska...but it's not.

4.  Cooking

Come Thanksgiving and there will be lots of cooking done with these pumpkins.

These COULD be pumpkins on a farm in Nebraska...but it's not.

5.  Week's Favorite/Favorite

Logan Square
Philadelphia, PA
(linked to: Sundays in my CityYour Sunday BestWeekly Top Shot,)

I'm such a bokeh bimbo.  Got Bokeh?  That qualifies it as my fav.  'Nuf said.

This COULD be a fountain in Nebraska's PENNSYLVANIA, where the refs are GOOD!

On a more serious note, I would like to say thank you to all our Veterans as well as the brave men and women currently serving in the U.S. Military on this Veterans' Day.  In my opinion, there is nothing more noble than the service and sacrifices you have made on behalf of our great country.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I'm sure it can never be said enough.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by, and you KNOW I love all your comments.  So feel free to leave some (unless you are from Nebraska...TOTALLY kidding, cause as you can see I'm such a great sport) and hop on over to Ashley's Ramblings and Photos to check out all the great submissions.

Hope all YOUR college football teams had good refs with decent eyesight this weekend.



  1. Love them all, but especially those little glass bottles!

  2. You crack me up. And take beautiful photos. It's a great combo! Watching the Oregon Ducks now (married into it) and as far as I can tell the refs are behaving. But there are some college soccer reps from New England that I'd like to pack up and mail to Nebraska!

  3. Amazing shot of the leaf!
    Have a wonderful day!
    Lea's Menagerie

  4. ROFL, crack me up, and I needed the laugh - for a moment I forgot my tooth hurts. Seriously, love the leaf and those vintage bottles!! Well okay, AND the crazy window in the barn.

  5. The American Football allusions are lost on me I'm afraid - do I detect a subtle air of anger/resentment about something there though? :O))) Love those bottles and that leaf.

  6. Your pictures are gorgeous. I love the window one...that is very whimsical. :)

  7. this comment is not from Nebraska :D You have some great artistic shots - like your autumn leaf!

  8. You are too much! Love that leaf - great pov. And those bottles - LOVE them!

  9. Ha, laughed at your barn shot with the slanted window. First time I saw one of these I thought the same thing, really I thought "why the h3ll would someone put a window that way?" Now I know there are many reasons, and yes one of them is they don't know how to read directions. LOL Hope your weekend is as special as you are! :)

  10. Love, love, love these! And, I always love the way you write...good for a morning smile on this end. Love the POV on the leaf, love the bottles, and oh, that crooked window! My kinda guy!

  11. Awesome set! We were out last night with my brother-in-law who is a Penn State fan. Wow, the refs really blew that one! Great photos and humor!

  12. You just know how to make me laugh - LOVE all your shots, no matter where you took them!

  13. ROTFL-that barn shot is brilliant. Beautiful set Kathy

  14. Well hey friend who could be in Nebraska but is NOT. Let's hope the Eagles refs don't stink. They need to squash those Cowboys. I'm feeling like I might have to jump off the band wagon if they don't up the green, you know? Love those first 3 images-oh hell, I always love your images. Too funny, not following directions. How unusual-NOT. I tried once to sell a house with a window installed on that angle. It was tough.
    I'm thinking you could get those vintage bottles nicely arranged and incorportated into Christmas decor. Perhaps a string of light winding thru.
    Have a great day Kathy. Love that new selfie.

  15. Wow you take your football seriously! Hilarious commentary in your post.
    Awesome photos.
    Loved your Nature shot.
    Vintage is really cool.
    My favorite though has to be that Whimsical shot - How funny is that.

  16. Well I don't know anything about the Refs but these pics are lovely. The bottles are my favorite, but I don't know what I would do with them either.

  17. laughing * out * loud. could be in Nebraska. but it's not!


  18. LOL and yes it could be in Nebraska but it's not! :) Great shots!


  19. These pictures are gorgeous!!!

  20. Love the leaf, love the bottles and that crazy barn window is awesome.


  21. Pretty sure you don't want any football moralizing from ANOTHER Big Ten College football junkie, huh?

    Nebraska got us too - - - sadly.

    But I don't blame the refs. I am of the opinion that my boys didn't play well enough to overcome the refs or Nebraska, so they lost by a miniscule few points.

    I blame the QB we were using at the time.

  22. Kathy- these are AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! LOVE THEM

  23. Love your vintage and whimsical photos. My husband and I were laughing at the window and wondering what on earth it was there for?

  24. Oh my gosh girly.. You have me LOL once again.. Love all your photos.


  25. the whimsical barn not in Nebraska is fabulous!! great pics as always... and I love love those bottles too! ;)

  26. The barn is a hoot! The perfect solution for vintage bottles is to fill them with vintage wine! lol Beautiful pics!

  27. lol...sorry about the whole ref problem. Your photos are fantastic - those bottles! And that barn photo is wild - what was the thought process behind the diagonal window?? Interesting. Regarding our veterans, I couldn't have said it better than you did.

  28. You always crack me up. Love that whimsical shot.

  29. Another entertaining post with great photos to match - your vintage bottles are my pick.

  30. What can I say? We won! That's what! Lol.

    Ooops, I mean sorry you lost. I'm very sad.

    1. Haha..I was WAITING to hear from you :)

  31. What a totally fascinating window in that barn/ building. What were they thinking? Of course your fountain shot is perfect with all of its bokeh. Don't you love that lens??

  32. What a great series of shots, love those colored glass bottles... Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #56!

  33. If you are going to be a bimbo, then I think a bokeh bimbo can't be beat. Love the bottles.
