100-Word Challenge for Grownups – Week 120

Well, I’m almost late with my story for this week’s challenge, and, to be honest, I’m a tad over the word limit, but I don’t have any more time to edit it further. So here’s my offering for Julia’s picture prompt. THE BUNDLE At dusk, Marla went to retrieve her shoes from the window whereContinue reading “100-Word Challenge for Grownups – Week 120”

Thursday’s Lingering Look at Windows — Week 45

I woke earlier than usual a couple of weeks ago, and when I opened my eyes, this lovely play of light and shadow was right in front of me. The sun was at just the right place to cause the corner of the front porch roof to look like artwork against the venetian blinds atContinue reading “Thursday’s Lingering Look at Windows — Week 45”

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Color of Your Choice

The color of my choice this week is RED!  I’m really into red right now because that’s the color I’ve chosen to accent my kitchen. My kitchen is primarily blue and white. Actually the walls are half blue and half white, but almost all the cabinets and appliances are white.  I love that, but thenContinue reading “Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Color of Your Choice”

Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 14

TWO CHRISTMAS WINDOWS FROM MY HOMETOWN THIS WEEK: This first set is both sides of the headquarters of the Brewster Philanthropic Foundation. Each year they light their second-story windows like this especially for Christmas. This next picture is one of the same buildings I featured in a day-time picture a few weeks ago. I reallyContinue reading “Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 14”

Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 12

Okay, you all know how much I love Christmas, so, naturally, I have to bring the celebration to my windows.  This is three views of the window of my front door and the Christmas wreath which pretty much covers it. So, yeah, really it’s pictures of my Christmas wreath, but I figure there’s enough windowContinue reading “Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 12”

Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 11

A little different view on this week’s window:   A few months ago, I did an experiment, which included trying to take a picture of the moon through my living room window.  I knew it would probably not take very well, but I did not realize just what kind of product I would end upContinue reading “Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 11”

Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows – Week 10

Posting a day early because of the holiday. I have borrowed a window again this week, mainly because it is one of my favorite window pictures, and it seem so very appropriate for this Thanksgiving week. I’m truly enjoying all of your pictures. Isn’t it amazing how something  so “ordinary” can suddenly become a thingContinue reading “Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows – Week 10”

Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows – Week 8

Below is my offering for this week.  It is a photo my sister took on her trip to France last year.  She loves Monet’s work and has always wanted to visit his home.  When she did so, she got some great pictures. What fascinates me about the home is that it has SO MANY windows.Continue reading “Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows – Week 8”

Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 7

One of my favorite windows in the world: My front door.  In the U. S. it’s quite common to have two doors at the entrances: One a normal wooden door and the other a storm/screen door, which usually consists of glass windows which can be converted to screens for warm weather. Some are plain andContinue reading “Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 7”

Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 6

Madonna and Child window above the main entrance to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic Church in Herrin, Illinois, U. S. A.  The inscription is from the Gospel of Matthew: “My house shall be called a house of prayer.” Well, here we are in our 6th week of “Thusday’s Windows.” I’m having fun. Hope youContinue reading “Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows — Week 6”

Photo Challenge: ‘Thursday’s Windows’ – 3rd Week

Well, that time has rolled around again, and I am posting a photo from my old high school days.  The picture shows several of my classmates in study hall, but what catches my attention is that whole wall of windows at the back of the room.  They are the epitome of “School Windows” from aboutContinue reading “Photo Challenge: ‘Thursday’s Windows’ – 3rd Week”

Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows

Well, folks, this is our second week of “Thursday’s Windows” photo challenge. Hope you are enjoying your window shopping and sharing what you find.  This photo is of my kitchen window.  One of the reasons we bought this house was because of an arched doorway in the kitchen and these windows with the cozy littleContinue reading “Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows”

New Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows

I’ve been in a whimsical mood this morning, and got to thinking about all the photo challenges out there.  I was in the mood to post a lovely, sunny photo of a window, but then I thought: “Hey, there’s no photo challenge for Thursdays. (At least not that I know of.)  Maybe I should inventContinue reading “New Photo Challenge: Thursday’s Windows”
