Scavenger Hunt week 3 finds:



As most of you know I am participating in the scavenger hunt over at Misi’s blog 1890 Gable House Musings.

Time to post my finds for week 3.

Here’s List #3
#1 Stool with Hooked TopSad smile
#2 Old Tin FunnelSmile
#3 Putz (or style like) Lamb/sheep Confused smile
#4 Crow on a stick Smile
#5 Wooden Cigar Mold Sad smile
#6 Silhouette Box Winking smile
#7- Bero’s Bonus- Pure Maple Syrup Sign or OLD Syrup Can Smile

Boy this one was even harder than last week and I’m not sure if what I have will pass. Hope Misi accepts them, cause I want to go to the final hunt. I’m having loads of fun trying to find or figure out where I can get these items.

Hunt 3 003

I’ve displayed 5 of the 7 items on the list.

Hunt 3 004

Crow on a stick – I made last year from wood. Old funnels, I have two displayed, putz sheep or like – I have a wooly sheep with stick legs handmade, and a tale sheep Americana with stick legs I made last year. An old King syrup can and a Vermont Maple syrup can. A Betsy Ross silhouette round box.

Hunt 3 005

The only old stool/ bench I have is this 50+ yr. old Dutch hand painted bench I bought about 18 yrs. ago. I truly cherish it and promised the previous owner I would take good care of it.

Hunt 3 009

The top reads Home is where the heart is. How true this statement is.

Hunt 3 010

This is the outer painting on the legs.

Hunt 3 011

This is the painting on the inside part of the leg.

Hunt 3 013

Closer pic of the top painting. Sorry the flash kept glaring and without the flash it’s too dark.

That’s my finds for the hunt this week. Can’t wait to see what’s on it for next week. I may have to go see my neighbors if this gets any

Thank you Misi for another fun hunt! Go on over to 1890 Gable House Musing and see who else is scavenging around to find items.

Prim Blessings, Jean
