Scavenger Hunt Sunday!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far!
It has been nice and relaxing for me!

I am playing in Ashley's Scavenger Hunt again this week.
The word prompts this week were a lot of fun!
Most but not all of these photos are from a short little trip
The Hubby and I, (and our kitty's) took to
Calico Ghost Town.

The word prompts for this week are:

Memories,  Silhouette,  Doorway(s)  Reflections,  Silver 

Memories - Day #142
My parents used to bring us here when I was a kid.  I remember
Panning for Gold..  And watch the Cowboys have a good old fashion gunfight right on the street.
I was a little disappointed that they didn't have a gunfight this time.. Maybe all the cowboys
 were off for the winter! 

The color of the sky was so beautiful lighting up the desert sky!


Look,  back then they had his and hers Outhouses..
Just watch out for those rattlesnakes.

Here are some more doorways from the old west!

This was a glass door to a saddle shop.. I wish I would have taken
my jacket off before I took the shot..  This shot is straight out of the camera.
Just a little cropping that's it!

Another refection shot.. This one was taken not in Calico but a little dinner
that is on the other side of the highway..  Yep they lure you in by saying they
have dinosaurs park at there diner..  I know it does sound a little crazy!

Silver - Day #143
I have a little collection of Salt and Pepper shakers that I have been
collecting since I was about 7 years old..  I just added these Silver S&P shakers
to my collection about 8 years ago..  I found them at an antique shop while we were
on vacation.

That's all I have for this week..  To see the other entries you can go to
Ashley's blog - Ramblings and Photos..

Thank you Ashley.. I really do enjoy playing along!

Hugs, Linda


  1. I really like those silver s & p shakers Linda! i used to have a collection of s&p shakers when I was a little girl. I don't know what happened to them. We moved lots when I was little so I suppose they got broken or given away.

    Very cute. I would like to see some more photos of your collection! :)

    Happy Sunday!

  3. Your Silhouette shot is gorgeous! I'm so in awe of everyone's beautiful silhouette shots. Now I am more inspired to learn how to do it. :)

  4. All wonderful shots, Linda. How many pairs of S&P shakers do you own? I'm thinking that word "little collection" might be an understatement. I've never know anyone who collects S&P shakers to have a little collection. :)
