Email Photo Scavenger Hunt - April

So, as usual, I seem to be doing this last-minute! I'm waiting for the A/C service guy to show up for the yearly maintenance. So, I went around the house to scavenge these illusive pics!

1 - A child's toy in an unlikely place:
I love chimpanzees. I've had this little guy for about 30 years, I think. There used to be a party and craft warehouse (The Wishing Well) in Sacramento and we went there a lot for cheap craft items. I saw him and had to have him. He is now sitting up on top of my wardrobe in an old gold prize cup that one of my mice won at a rodent show ... about 30 years ago! I'm a packrat - the little zebra off to the side, I've had since I was a baby. I think one of my cousin's won him at a fair for me ... 51 years ago ...

2 - Something you think is wasteful:
Toilet paper! I rarely use it anymore. I use washable cloths and water most of the time, now.

3 - Something very ordinary:
Raw sunflower seeds that I'm snacking on.

4 - Something with sharp edges:
Lots of little sharp edges on the cheese grater/mandolin.

5 - A thrift store or yard sale find you love:
My mom bought this picture for me at Denio's Farmers Market about 25 years ago. It is still one of the biggest flea markets in Northern CA. Even though it is an English Setter puppy, it still reminds me of my Cocker Spaniels that I had back then. Quinn and Gemini were still puppies when I got it.

6 - Photo taken from your kitchen/back door or window:
This picture was taken from our sliding glass door and looks out at part of our back yard.

I hope you enjoyed my pics!
