Show Me . . .

Robert of Thoughts of a Father has been hosting a photographic challenge all week, and I'm finally jumping in. His theme is "show me . . ." with the object changing each new day. Today I grabbed my camera and shot them all. Here are the results. On Sunday, he said "show me your mailbox."
Ours is built into the front door. Here's a close up. Monday was "show me your kitchen."
This is the only shot I didn't take today. I borrowed it from the shots I took for Anna Carson's Project Blue. Tuesday was "show me your front door."
I've always loved how thick and heavy our door is. (Here's another view of our "mailbox" too.) Wednesday was "show me an object of sentimental value."
This rocking chair belonged to my husband's grandfather. We found it in the old family barn in rural Ohio. The varnish was black and the original metal-spring, leather seat had been converted to a nest by rats. George refinished it, and I reupholstered it. Now its honeyed tones warm our hearts and our living room. Thursday was "show me a favorite view."
Photographs of my kids, each taken when they were 18 months old. My house is full of photos from many eras of our lives. I love them! Friday was "show me something that relaxes you."
When I need therapy (or just want to make music), you'll often find me here.

Tomorrow is the last day of the "Show Me" project, and the assignment is "Show me yourself!" See you then. :)

Jeanne,
How wonderful that you were able to participate! Not that we're picking favorites here but I really love the front door picture. I love how the light is falling on the outside portion of it showing such wonderful tones. Thanks so much for joining. Looking forward to you coming back tomorrow.

Nice collection. I love your front door. Wow looks wonderful and solid. Rocking chair is magical and so special because of it's history. Children's pictures are always a joy and the piano - I miss mine terribly. Your photos were beautiful as always.
