This post is for Karen’s October Photo Hunt. The theme? Idioms.
I wasn’t sure how to tackle it, so I took it literally (can’t wait to see what her other participants came up with). And thank goodness for the link with the list of idioms, Karen posted, because I probably only would have been able to come up with one. Maybe two. Requirement was three photos, and I got… well, let’s just say I made up for all the photo hunts I didn’t participate in. I’m getting extra points, right? 😉
OK, here goes…
Come rain or shine
Don’t count your chickens before they hatch
She’s got a chip on her shoulder (and it’s a PITA, too!)
On the fence
X marks the spot (in this case, a coffee spot on my kitchen counter. Texture added to make it look less boring)
Let the cat out of the bag (or don’t)
Wear your heart on your sleeve
Tying the knot (although it looks like this knot has already been tied!)
That’s how the cookie crumbles (can you think of a better
excuse reason to buy cookies than for a little photo shoot?)
On pins and needles (ouch! Glad I didn’t have to be the model for this one!)
The last straw (and also the last idiom photo hunt picture)
Bonus: “Show me Halloween!” Thank goodness this didn’t have to have anything to do with idioms, because I searched and searched, and couldn’t find a single one! So here’s two of the
cute scary little ghosts, that are haunting our trees.
This was fun!! And if anyone wants to participate, there’s still time. Due date is Oct. 31, 2011!
