Scatterday T - Week 14

Scatterday T - Week 14

Election Scatterday is brought to you by the letter T.

Clothing - Whe I saw this T-shirt a few years ago I simply had to have it - its message always makes me smile! Wonder who paid attention in Latin classes at school and can put up her hand and tell me what it says...

My Purple thing is a Tree. At this time of year the gorgeous jacaranda dominates the landscape, absolutely covered in glorious purple blooms with hardly a leaf to be seen. Here is just a branch from a big one in the harbourside park at the end of our street.

And finally, my Hot thing is, of course, a mug of Tea, brought to me by my DH.

Off to vote now...

Scatterday H - Week 13

Scatterday H - Week 13

Posting my Scatterday at the eleventh hour, but at least it's still Saturday!

This week's letter was H, with the categories Human, Toys and Soft.

For Human we have a hand, mine.

The Toy is a little plastic helicopter I borrowed from our church creche.

And for Soft I have a photo of Alexanne, wearing a headband over her fine, soft, whispy, sticky-up, lavvy brush hair. The mosaic has cropped much of it, but I think I can safely predict we won't be seeing curls here.

She's so cute I hope you'll forgive me using her in Scatterday yet again. It's been a few weeks, and if Pennie can introduce her babushkas in 100 different ways into Scatterday, I reckon I can do the same with Alexanne!

Scatterday O - Week 12

Here you are, girls - it's late, but not too late I hope. Lately the weeks seem to fill so fast with the everyday minutiae of life that if it weren't for Scatterday my postings might be a really indecent period apart.

I've deliberately avoided checking everyone else's blogs so there was no temptation to - gasp! - copy from those cleverer than I am. So any similarities are absolutely unintentional and simply show that great minds think alike.

This week's Scatterday is brought to you by the letter "O" and the categories - Breakfast, Shiny Things and Small Things.

In our house breakfast is spelled with a capital "C" (for Coffee!!!!), but I found this carton of delicious orange juice from the Original Juice Co. in my fridge.

When I switch it on my Ott Lite is definitely shiny! even if not in the sense strictly intended here... And it's pink!

This small and dainty pair of opera glasses belonged to my late mother-in-law and I think they're really pretty.

Off to do my homework for next week! I don't want to be kept in after school by the Chief Scatterdaisy!

Scatterday A - Week 11

A little early because life has a habit of crowding in on me on a Saturday.

Call me anal (many do) but I do like my Scatterday mosaics to look pretty as well as practical (get a life, girl!) . So this week I'm not greatly pleased with the presentation of my photos. Finding a colour for the borders was quite a challenge since I'm not particularly enamoured of the shades in my photos. Oh well, at least I've done it......

Round things was the category that gave me the most food for thought, and I think best when I'm driving. So it wasn't surprising that inspiration came as I was approaching an intersection! The amber traffic light! I quickly turned down a side street, whipped out my camera, and took up my position beneath the traffic light, taking quite a few shots of that little round amber beauty as the lights went through their sequences. Lord knows what the motorists thought I was doing - but then we Scatterdaisies are getting used to bemused glances, aren't we?

Vegetables was an easy one this week because just about every night we've enjoyed wonderful, snappingly fresh asparagus from our local supermarket where it's been selling at a very attractive price. I hadn't realised how reptilian those heads of asparagus can look until I began my photo session. Just how do you 'style' a bunch of asparagus?

Things that I like the smell of made me think a little. I could have taken a photo of my gorgeous and oh-so-sweetly-smelling Crabtree and Evelyn air freshener which I adore and save for when special people are coming to visit - like any of you!!! However I decided instead to present my Anais Anais perfumed body lotion, a gift from a dear friend a while ago, which makes me feel a million dollars.

I'll try to improve my standard of mosaic next week! Dy and Michelle, please be nice to us!
