Winter Photographic Scavenger Hunt

I'm a bit behind with this month's linky, I spent the first week of the month in Essex with my mum (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!).

I'm also a bit behind with the actual hunt, having still to find 13 of the subjects, but here are the few that I've found so far this year.

3. Domestic Trivia

Cleaning the hob

Dismantling an internal wall

8. Silver (festive tree decoration)

9. In the making

The annual family festive 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle

19. A pair of . . .

. . . glasses

. . . baby shoes

. . . scissors

I would love to see how you are getting on but I can't seem to get the linky to work, so please head on over to Eileen's blog (a bracelet of days) to add your own.
