This lovely mare, Gift of the Rare Gem, was originally going to be participating in the White Elephant game. However, when it was explained to her what all the game entailed, she um… politely declined. Something about not wanting her lovely hair to get mussed I think.

Gift : *scoffs indignantly*

So she persuaded me to run a separate game, just for her. Gift wants to be certain that whomever she goes with understands her high standards and needs. So fetch your cameras for a photo scavenger hunt.

The Rules

- Please include a nametag with your username on it in each photo.
- The photos don't need to be taken around your house, they could be at work or just out wherever, as long as you take them yourself!
- If your photos are very large and you're unable to resize, please link to them instead.
- To enter just post all of your photos in this thread!
- Feel free to edit your post before the end of the event.


The List!

- A cozy place to rest
- A gorgeous view
- A tasty treat
- Something shiny or glittery
- A holiday tradition

Prizes!

The grand prize (Gift of the Rare Gem) will be chosen as the best overall photos to match the theme

Image
Trait Amulet - Extensive Tufts

Image
Trait Amulet - Extravagant Tail

Two additional prizes of amulets will go to randomly selected entrants.
In addition all entrants will receive a random modiem.

To enter just post your photos here. The photo hunt will be open until Jan 3rd 2017 at 2:00PM Pacific

A cozy place to rest: Because nothing is cozier than a large penguin pillow? ^_^
Image

A gorgeous view: Did I mean the view of the artwork, or the view in the artwork? The world will never know. XD
Image

A tasty treat: A Meyer lemon! *so proud of her little tree*
Image

Something shiny or glittery: Scarves and belts that I may never wear, but still enjoy having!
Image

A holiday tradition: Because it's not the day after American Thanksgiving if the musical bells don't go up. :P
Image

There, I'm already trying not to procrastinate on Sam things so much in 2017! :D Thanks for the chance Amazon, and lovely work Oak!

- A cozy place to rest
One of my cats atop three blankets. She's pretty comfy and warm!
Image

- A gorgeous view
Ok it's raining in NYC today so no nice views of the city. Here's a pretty landscape instead!
Image

- A tasty treat
My folks got us a huge block of Vermont cheese for Xmas. Mm cheese!
Image

- Something shiny or glittery
My dice bag! The shimmering doesn't really come through in this picture, but the material is Japanese kimono fabric and it glitters in the light.
Image

- A holiday tradition
And the Christmas tree! We live in a little apartment, so our trees are always pretty small. This one is probably going out on the curb today... But right now it's still up and the lights are on.

Ok, finally getting around to this!

- A cozy place to rest
A pile of pillows and stuffed animals. As a side note, this isn't even half of my stuffed animals/characters, the rest are in a box and I've just been to lazy to unpack them even though the remodeling in my room has been done for a week now.
Image

- A gorgeous view
The view from my aunts house at Christmas. Forgive me for the writing on my hand. I forgot my little nametag, and I didn't want to bother my aunt for paper since she was running around like a headless chicken.
Image

- A tasty treat
Buñuelos!
Image

- Something shiny or glittery
My New Years tiara.
Image

- A holiday tradition
12 grapes to be eaten by the final stroke of midnight for 12 months of good fortune.
Image

- A cozy place to rest: my bed of course, although it appears that someone is already sleeping in it :O
Image
- A gorgeous view: Mountains are almost a prerequisite for a gorgeous view. Unfortunately I didn't have a nametag handy when I was up skiing so here's another photo from my dragon calendar
ImageImage
- A tasty treat: It may not look that appetizing to me, but Rio loves her mash and pellets at breakfast
Image
- Something shiny or glittery: Yay for shiny tinsel, almost as bad as glitter for getting everywhere!
Image
- A holiday tradition: when I'm away from home I set up my little mini Christmas tree until school's done for the holidays and I can go home and decorate the real tree.

Great photos guys! It's so fun seeing unique takes on the prompts. It was a tough choice but Gift will be going to silvermoondragon. random.org chose ElvenArcher for the Extensive Tufts amulet and FoxyJhai for the Extravagant Tail.
Thanks everyone for playing!

I'll ask Sushi to update inventories when she has a chance :D

Well hello Gift! You're welcome to share a nice comfy spot on my bed with Rio and I, and I think the tinsel would look lovely in your hair and mane!

Thank you for running this event amazondreamer, photo hunts are always lots of fun to do!
