THURSDAY’S DOORS – APRIL 16, 2015

Norm @ Miscellaneous Musings…  has challenged, sort of, me to post a door.  Jeff and I took a road trip to Valley Forge, PA and I posted this door in one of my few and far between posts.  It’s the one Norm liked for his challenge and I thank him for his appreciation of a good lookin’ door.  😉

But, since you might have seen that one, being loyal and avid fans of my blog – HUH? – here’s another bit of eye candy that we got a gander at while roaming the chapel.

DOOR NUMBER TWO :-)

Now, here’s the tricky part.  Norm has some kind of link system thingy going on at his blog and I’m going to give it a try.  Being the technological dweeb of the century, and knowing very little of how these things work, I’m going to link you to Norm’s challenge right here, and then attempt to do the fancy linking thingy on his blog which is a blue button there and it will take you to my doors and the other submissions – hopefully.  If it doesn’t work, well then, I’m the idiot, but not for lack of trying.

Norm, you are also challenging my abilities! Here goes nothin’…

 

CEE’S FUN FOTO CHALLENGE – CHURCHES OR ANY RELIGIOUS BUILDINGS

If you’re ever in the area, Valley Forge, PA is a beautiful place for walking, biking, horseback riding, and taking in some US history.  Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week gives me the opportunity to post a few shots of the Washington Chapel that sits on the grounds. And if the weather ever cooperates, a picnic basket might be in order, Boo Boo. 😉

THURSDAY LINGERING LOOK AT WINDOWS – WEEK 12

Washington Chapel – Valley Forge, Pennsylvania

There is a small, quaint chapel in Valley Forge, PA.  The rest of the church building is large enough to house these beautiful windows. This place takes my breath away. The history, the architecture.  From the first step you take into the structure, you are seriously blown away.

Enjoy the magic.

Click here and you’ll be whisked away into a world of windows.  Thanks to Dawn @ lingeringvisions for hosting the window series.
