AUGUST SCAVENGER PHOTO HUNT.

I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Linking up with the lovely Kate from I live, I love, I craft, I am me............  Having only just got back from 3 weeks away to Queensland in our caravan, I'm still not quite with it, but here goes.

1.  TEA/TEE
 My great grandmother's delicate teacup, saucer and plate.  It's very old, as she was born in 1875 & passed away when I was 15.
A golf tee used to hold a small felted flower, propped in a cotton reel from Stotts Bobbin Mill in the Lakes District, UK.  I made this in a craft class, way back when.

2.  THYME/TIME
 Not what I had in mind, but last minute option.  I've no thyme growing in my garden & didn't have "time" to go looking for some ๐Ÿ˜–
This would tell the TIME on a sunny day, but alas it's been quite dreary here today.

3.  AISLE/ISLE
 The aisle of an old church at the Pioneer Village in Toowoomba, which we visited whilst on our trip.
Another photo taken on this trip at Mudjimba Beach showing an island just off shore.

4.  FAIRY/FERRY
 This flower "fairy" fabric was left over from a quilt I made for my great niece for her little girl bed, which was some time ago, as she is now 12.
I've been toying with an idea for these & had just got them out when the hunt list came through.
Taken yesterday, when we went out for a light lunch as my birthday treat.  On the way home we stopped of at a place called Corinella on Westernport Bay & spotted this little ferry arriving from French Island.  I went "aha", my ferry photo.

5.  FLOUR/FLOWER
 Another from our recent trip.  We had a day when we visited several waterfalls, one being a short walk, then a long walk down many steps & all the way back up again for the second..  The third was a bit of a let down, with not being able to see much, so drove back towards the caravan park & had an afternoon cuppa at this Cafe, then realised what it was called so snapped their sign.
A day out to the rhodendron gardens (late July), in the Dandenongs found me snapping away merrily & I thought this one would do for flower.  I think it goes by the name of witch hazel & I've actually never seen one in flower before.  It's so pretty.

6.  MY OWN CHOICE.
Another from our recent trip & also taken at Mudjimba Beach.  I had to look this one up and found it is a Pandanus Palm.  Although I knew what the top looked like, I'd never ever seen the trunk & base of this tree, and was rather amused.  We saw many more along the coast as we drove home.

OK, that's my lot for the hunt & I'm getting cold again.  Best turn the heater up before it gets dark & colder.  It's only 9° now at 5pm.
Looking forward to catching up with all again & seeing what everyone comes up with.
Take care all and huggles from Susan.
