Monday Windows of Old

Doors and windows are the very breath of a building. They either let people go in and out or they let light and air in and out. Old architecture has always fascinated me with the intricate details they used with masonry and stone. Below are a few from around town that I thought were interesting.

Ludwig has invited us to join his challenge Monday Windows to post your “Monday Window” photos on your blog. Tag your post Monday Window and add #MondayWindow in your text. See other window post here.

Norm has always let us show amazing doors so I am glad someone came up with windows as both show the beauty and heart of a building.

This is from the college with the dormer type windows and the concrete arch ones below.

Windows let in the light of day and shine out the light of man at night. Always let your light shine though your window and be kind.

Key Variations, TPC

Dutch Goes the Photo has given us a fun  challenge of a word of “key” that could go in MANY directions. I have chosen four angles on the word key and looking forward to seeing others ideas. Come join in on the fun of Tuesday Photo Challenge.

First we have my grandmother’s china cabinet with a key my children loved to play with when young.

The next variation I chose is key ingredients in making yummy oatmeal cookies.

Making some on Saturday…yum

The third variations deals more with a Christian truth we hang onto as a key of hope.

Revelation 1:17, 18

The fourth is a lot more illusive with more variations than the word “key”. The KEY to Happiness. To me happiness is not a fleeting feeling but an inner joy of hope we have in Jesus Christ and staying in tune with his words. Will things blow up, yes. Does life get hard, yes. Do I fail at it daily, yes. Do others not believe as I do, yes. But for me, I have that Key hope that He will always be by my side, guiding, comforting, loving and I always try to pass on the key of hope He gives us by being kind as a key way of life.

Fun With August Colors & Letters

Today is August 3rd, a beautiful Saturday, and a new feeder has been added to the yard. CitySonnet’s challenge for today is the letter F so I have a House Finch be the first visitor to the new feeder.

House Finch

I had heard that saffron seeds were a favorite of some birds and not a favorite of squirrels, so we are giving a new food a try.

Come join in all month to see the wide variety of pictures that come from our camera’s eye.

I also tie in with Granny Shot It and her prompt of Bird of the Day. I enjoy the several types of Finches that graze at my feeders.

It has been great to tie in with Cee’s Challenge list so that you can add in other people’s fun with prompts and photography. 

As you enjoy everyone’s view on natures beauty, remember to share that beauty with a smile and the kindness of its beauty.
