Scavenger Hunt Sunday

1. Things that look like a letter of the Alphabet
Pipes that look like the letter "J".

2. Weather
 A heavily textured sunset greeted us on upon our arrival in Lijiang.

3. Bling
No bling necessary; she's my little princess.

4. Tangled
This cat obviously did not enjoy being chained up, but her efforts to free herself only got her more entangled... poor kitty!

5. Dark
Hieroglyphics revealing secrets from a newly discovered Egyptian tomb? Actually, these characters are the ancient form of the Naxi language called the Dongba script. Having served its people who inhabited the foothills of the Himalayas (China's Yunnan and Sichuan provinces) for over a thousand years old, it is on the verge of extinction.

What a lovely, imaginative, and unique collection, Serline! I love the pipes, they are soooooooooo pretty! They would make a stunning table display. Also, the Dongba script is really amazing. How wonderful you are in its possession. Is Narelle perhaps going to learn this obscure language???
