Fun Monday #49: the first anniversary edition

Vicki, who is the original Fun Monday creator-like person, is our hostess for this first anniversary edition of this amusing game. In honor of a year's worth of Fun Mondays, she wants to see this:

For those of you who did NOT post a picture of your view from your front door, then your assignment is to post a view from your front door. To do this you stand in your doorway looking outside and take a picture. That simple. We (I) want to see what you see when you look out your front door.

Well, I'm one of those Fun Monday newbies, so I wasn't around for the first front-porch view, but I was here for a version of same, done last October.

Here is the link to that post.

And then, a link to my very first post last July.

Does this satisfy the requirements of this week's challenge? Honestly I wasn't sure. Unfortunately, without the dramatic change of seasons that other parts of the country have, my view today versus my view last October isn't all that different.

So today, in honor of the first anniversary of Fun Monday, I present you with this mildly rule-bending moment:


The view OF my front door. (Excuse the umbrella, which has lain there since the rains of New Year's week. Um, yeah.)

I get my inspiration -- and my Fun Monday logo -- from Swampy, who is the queen of the rule-benders!

Now, go see how the rest of the crew celebrated this auspicious occasion!

my4kids said...

Hey I like rule breakers and you have a nice door. We don't have umbrellas here it rains so much people just move quickly when outside :)!

Hootin' Anni said...

Y'know? I did the exact same thing!!! That's good. You and me...we be the best 'rule breakers' of all Fun Mondays. LOL

ChrisB said...

What are rules if they are not to be bent sometimes, that's why it's fun!

mjd said...

I remember you lovely roses. Reading these first entries has been fun too. My son used to be in the newspaper business and now works for a magazine. The electronic world is indeed edging out the print media.

nikki said...

You have such a pretty front door!

lisa's chaos said...

I'm so glad that I'm not the only rule-bender. :) Pretty door!

A very nice front door. I bent the rules a little, too.

Your stairs have a very gracful curve and your door really is lovely.

Aoj & The Lurchers said...

What's a rule for if not to be broken!

That really is a lovely door!

Bren said...

Rules are made to be broken. ;)

Love the roses!

suchsimplepleasures said...

despite the umbrella...which is barely noticeable and gives the whole facade a certain something...it's a beautiful front entry!! and, like peter said...you are so flipping lucky that there is no snow!! we don't have a lot, right now but...a little istoo much!!

Kaytabug said...

I have always thought rules are meant to be broken. I love this shot of your door. I don't know if I would have noticed the umbrella if you had not mentioned it!

Linda said...

That is a storybook door! No wonder that's where you get your inspiration!

ellen b. said...

Well your front door is marvelous. You have my curiosity going now, though...

Faye said...

I love your blue awning. It looks very inviting.

I just love your blog!! SO even if you just post a picture "OF" your door, it'd cool with me!

Beckie said...

Great idea - mix it up a bit!

Karina said...

OOOh, I do love your front door...worth it to bend the rules a bit.

laurie said...

i like your door. now i want to see what's behind it!

susan said...

Something about your front door makes me think of Alice in Wonderland...or maybe Minnie's house over in Toontown. Either way, I like it lots!

Karmyn R said...

I agree with everyone else - I want to see a picture of your whole house...because I am reminded of something cartoonish or Alice in Wonderland.

Pamela said...

I'm late...I'm late... for a very important date.

So says the white rabbit, who left his umbrella on your doorstep (:

I like your front door.

I laughed out loud at your 'unique' seasons in the one post LOL and your roses are amazing. I also love the...I'm sure there is a more eloquent name for it but...canopy over your beautiful front door. Now. Turn around and snap a pic that way :o)

Canadian flake said...
