Hooked on Treasure Hunts

treasure-chest2Welcome to Hooked on Fridays, a blog party I host at the end of each week to celebrate the things that make us happy. I have always enjoyed organizing treasure hunts and scavenger hunts for my kids, and today I had an idea. Wouldn’t it be fun to plan a little treasure hunt for you? And the “treasure” will be an Amazon gift card!

All you have to do is figure out where these two photos (below) came from (hint: try the links in my right-hand sidebar) and e-mail me the answers.

Photo Find #1:


Photo Find #2:


The Rules:

  1. Visit the links in my right-hand sidebar under “Sites to See” until you find the photos.
  2. Send me an e-mail with the subject line “TREASURE HUNT” and tell me where you found them. (Don’t leave the answers in the comments–they’ll be deleted and you’ll be disqualified!)
  3. I’ll draw a winner at random from those who send me the correct answers before Monday. At stake: a $25 Amazon.com gift card to spend however you want!


Happy Hunting! (Be sure to stop by Melissa’s Beautiful Life party today, too. It’s always a lot of fun!)

Now it’s your turn to tell us what you’re hooked on today! If you have something to share with us on your blog, then add your link below.

    I posted as #36 and had the wrong address, I could not quite figure out how to delete it, is that something you can do? I resubmitted my post as #38 it is correct.

    I didn’t do a hooked on post this week because I was updating and slightly redoing my blog layout the last two days. :( I don’t know where the photo is from, but I love the bedside table in picture #2!
