Photohunt: Chipped

The photohunt theme this week is chipped. Below is a chipped tea cup sitting in between a photograph of my daughter in 1986 at her first birthday and a photograph of her father as a boy. Below is a closeup of the chipped cup so you can see more detail on the chipped part.Snap2Days- Parallel lives photohunt post.

To find other photohunters you can visit the home of the Photohunt on Saturday.

Nice take. I found this week's theme really tough. I did think about chipped china but I could not find one to photograph and I did not want to purposely chip one :D

Have a good weekend.

Annie said...

Nice photos. I didn't even think of china and I'm sure I have some chipped pieces at my house too.

Love your inauguration day snow photos too. Looks like you got more than we did, but it was fun to have some that stuck around for a little while.

Happy weekend!

It's so beautiful. It's a waste it was chipped.

Ah yes that was an easy one.. I was thinking maybe I could say chipped for a mounted photo, but then it's broken! Thanks for the luck.. And I loved your photo with Sabine this week!

Nice shot Carver, We have a lot of chipped cups in this house but I have gone for something different. Happy weekend

Pretty Life Online said...

Nice one for this week theme, Mine's up too. Happy weekend!

Mirage said...

Like Photo Cache I thought of this too or literally chipped chips! it was too late when I remembered that I had a chipped plate and bowl :D Great choice! Happy weekend!

Aileni said...

I think we are going to see a lot of china. Me too.

jmb said...

I think we all had something chipped in our possessions which we are unwilling to toss, for whatever reason. This is a very pretty pattern. My chipped is a bit plain.

Happy weekend Carver.

Angela said...

I have a "chipped" cup as well, even named Chip. Happy hunting!

Dr.John said...

We have an old cup like that which is also chipped.

YTSL said...

That's a beautiful, even if chipped, tea cup! :)

Pretty teacup even with a chip. Nice Photos. Now, I'm going back to read of your snow... we got some too!

ancient one said...

Okay... you got six inches of snow .. we only got three...still some hiding around in the shadows.. but mostly gone...

ancient one said...

The writing on the windshield I copied from another blogger.. Possum, she had written "snow" on her windshield when she photographed some snow she had before Thanksgiving...

gengen said...

Nice one for the theme even there is a chipped on it. Happy weekend. Mine is ready.

david mcmahon said...

Nice work, as always, Carver. Mine is along the same lines ,...

Napaboaniya said...

Great shots of this week's theme,
lovely new header image you've got as well Carver! :)

Barbara H. said...

Aw, too bad it got chipped. It's lovely.

Dee said...

Carver,
I just wanted to tell you how much I love your new banner! What a cool shot you have there - with the snow and the sunset (or was it the dawn?). At any rate, it was gorgeous!

SASSY MOM said...

Nice take. It was a really hard theme this week. happy weekend!

marcia@joyismygoal said...

chipped is well loved

archiearchive said...

My coffee mug is chipped but I chose a different type of "Chip" for my entry.

Bonggamom said...

Sad about that chip, but then that qualifies it as an antique, right? :)

I do hope you have time to stop by my blog this weekend-- I'm helping Quaker Oats and Share Our Strength with a campaign to stamp out childhood hunger in the US!

julie said...

There is an old way of thinking that anything chipped should be thrown away, well according to my mom but those with sentimental values can be exempted :)

stan said...

those plates look precious.

Sabine said...

love your chipped cup carver - and its place among the photos too! :)

Sandy said...

I so hate to see our precious things get chipped.

JC said...

Can never have too many trinket bowls :-) Very nice shot, amid your loved ones!

Deb @ Sugarfused said...

It may be damaged but it is still a beautiful cup and lovely pattern!

Theresa said...

Love the new header- makes you want to be there and enjoy a nice afternoon.

I need to get back to photo hunting- Liked your take, I probably would of taken a picture of my mouth where I have two chipped teeth- the tea cup is very beautiful, not sure if that is it's perminant place by the pictures but it goes well with the pictures and frames for the old time look.

PowersTwinB said...

what a beautiful tea cup that is, chipped or not! I like how you put the two photos into the frame also! Great job! MY hunt is up please come and visit soon!

A. said...

A lovely cup, so it's a shame about the chip. I love the first shot, the way you've captured it in the mirror - I'm assuming it's a mirror.

Beautiful new header, by the way.

SabineM said...

It always makes me sad when I chip an item that is beautiful and/or irreplaceable!

Mrs Mecomber said...

Such beautiful china, chipped or not. Wasn't everything such a work of art back then?

I did Photo Hunters today, too. I hope you get a chance to visit.

Lovely china pattern. It's a pity when delicate beauties are broken, but chips happen. The best one can do is try to put the pieces back together and carry on. Hmm, there may be a metaphor here somewhere... Nicely done, Carver.

Sammawow said...

What a lovely setting with the tea cup and photos! Great choice for the chipped theme!

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

Pretty dishes, sorry they are chipped.

Jenn said...

Beautiful picture and china. Great choice for this week´s theme!

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

Hi, just wanted to tell you that I gave PowersTwinB your message. Called her and she has it adjusted it and will get to yours in a little bit. She said thanks.

PowersTwinB said...

sweetie...thank you for your comment to my sister KissedALotAtoads! I had not changed my email over in the settings of the dashboard when I thought I had! Thanks to you...I am gladly visiting all the Photo Hunters I can! Happy weekend sweetie! Becci

Biker Betty said...

What a beautiful teacup. I have an teacup given to me by my grandmother and it has chips, but I love the design. Have a great weekend :)

the donG said...

perfect choice! ill check others' contribution to this.

girasoli said...

Nice take on the theme. Beautiful tea cup. Too bad it is chipped. I have a collection from my grandmother. I don't use them very often, being afraid to chip them. I probably should though to enjoy them more.

June said...

I take it this cup is part of a family set of china for it to be displayed in such an important place. It's a nice thing to do with something so precious...memories stirred each time you see it.

Maria Narissa said...

the picture beside the chipped cup more caught my attention :-)

i feel sad every time china wares break...

Voyager said...

I tried to leave a comment earlier, but it is not showing up for some reason. I love your treasured chipped cup, so many people would simply throw it out for not being perfect.

I wasn't able to join PH last Sat. but it's interesting to see your photos. Those must be precious things that mean a lot to you. Thanks for sharing.

Easy Dessert said...

That is a beautiful photo... Pity that it was chipped though...

Jeanne said...

Carver--I love the "chipped" photos. Now would be the time to confess that rather than cherishing my chipped pottery, I smash it with a hammer and make mosaics out of it. I'll try to take a photo for you sometime soon.
