#atozchallenge – X for Xanthic and Y for Yellow

Image result for xanthic

Have you heard of the word xanthic? Or the color xanthic? You probably have… I never did. Until I stumbled across it while looking for cool X words to write about. And it actually offers me a wonderful possibility to combine two days of the #atozchallenge (to chatch up…) as xanthic is a shade of yellow… Can you see the xanthic in the yellow in my pictures?



52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 6 – Red


The color red is one of my favorite colors. So warm, so deep, so happy, so powerful, so bright. So many different shades…

Check out The Girls That Dreams Awake’s blog for great recipes and pictures.

So here’s what to do in regards to this photo challenge:

  1. Create a post entitled 52 weeks photo challenge :week (which week)-(the theme for the week)
  2. Create a pingback to this page or leave the link to your post in the comments box
  3. Tag the post ’52 weeks’


This post is also today’s contribution for the Taboo Word Challenge. The word I had to avoid was “it”.

One Word Photo Challenge – Seafoam

I feel like I get hooked to Jennifer Nichole Wells’ One Word Photo Challenge each and every time I head over to her blog and check out the new challenge. This one is another one which hit a soft spot.

I simply love the ocean. The soft waves, the big ones, the foam they form when they hit the beach. On one of my strolls along the beach I took the following pictures and I am glad I found a ‘reason’ to post them now. See that green color on the coral? This is apparently called seafoam. Things you learn…
