SPSH - First Photos

I have made a start on the SPSH with a few photos of things around the house:

No. 5. The Art of the Fold:  Both these items are origami pieces my daughter had made in high school:


The tulip has been placed in front of a photograph of my mother since the day it was made!  

The second item is a bit battered - I found it when I was going through a bag of old school work my daughter had set aside to recycle and rescued it!  I call it the calculating heart, because, she made it from a scrap of paper on which she had worked out a math problem!  

Calculating Heart

I have tucked it into the front of a framed photograph of my mother and myself.  

No. 7. What's in Bloom: This is just some of what's in bloom in my garden, this week:

Cornflowers and Gypsophila 


Double Colored Roses

Yellow Roses

Pink Roses

There were other flowers, too, including zucchini flowers, but, I didn't take photos of them.  Maybe another day.  

No. 9. Something Older than You:  There's isn't much in this house (unless you count the house, itself) that is older than me!  I took a couple of pictures of two of them, but, then, realized that I had used those same items in a previous Photo Scavenger Hunt (for No. 6 Vintage)!  These are the new photos I took, but, I think I will try to find something else to photograph, because I am not sure if using the same items (even if the photos are taken anew) is allowed!

I know the item doesn't have to be something in the house, but, I am not yet going out and about unless I have to.  I shall have to think a bit more about this prompt!

No. 11.  The Shape of Round/Circular:  These are just two of the round/circular objects I see around me:

Clock in the Family Room

Canning Jar lids

I haven't made a final selection for this prompt (or any of the others) but, I rather like the canning jar lids!  

Have you made a start on your SPSH photos?


  1. I don't think it matters if you've photographed an item for a previous hunt as long as you have taken new photos during the timescale for the current hunt.

    I like the one of the canning jar lids.

    1. Thank you, Eileen; yes, I took new photos of the same objects, but, I'll see if I can find something else, too. If not, these can be my "fall back on" photos! Provided Mary-Lou says it's OK. :)

  2. That's an interesting group of photos. I especially like the name, "Calculating Heart" that you gave one of your daughter's origami pieces.

    1. Thank you, June. Yes, the heart has some math calculations (pre-calculus stuff, if I am not mistaken). :)

  3. Great selection. The canning jar lids are a novel interpretation.
    Had coffee with friend this morning, then into the store. Because the government has opened things up a wee bit after weeks of restrictions, the general items were no longer cordoned off, so there was more than just the groceries to investigate. It was quite exciting but I was there to stock up on food.

    1. Thank you, Bushlady; I like the canning jar lids. :)

      Glad you were able to have coffee with a friend and then, go to the store. Good to hear that restrictions are being slowly lifted over there. Our state is scheduled to open up fully on the 15th! I am not sure if that is a good idea or not! I will continue to wear a mask and be cautious, just in case!

  4. Mary-Lou says OK! The SPSH is all about fun & being part of like minded folks, the "rules" are the least of anyone's concerns. I like your art of the fold ...

    1. Thank you, Mary-Lou! :) I shall see if I can find something else that is older than me, but, if not, then, these photos will be used. :)

  5. I always enjoy these posts. Sometimes I think what I may have chosen from the things around my house.
    The origami made by your daughter are so nice. Plus I really like the sentiment of your having kept the tulip in the place it was initially placed by your mother's photograph.
    Great name on the heart! Very clever.

    1. Thank you, Debra. I wish you would participate, too. :)

  6. Nice photos, Bless.
    I took some photos, and thought I'd wait until the end of the month to post them all. :)

    1. Thank you Nil. Looking forward to seeing your photos whenever you decide to post them. :)
