Round Robin Challenge: Hidden

Hi, Robins! This is one of mine, and it's a bit different. I hope you like it! The topic for Saturday, July 30th is


What I'd like to see here is hiding places or things hidden, or both. Show us a secret compartment, a doormat where an extra key might be stashed, a puzzle box, a secret fort, a romantic hideaway, a locked diary, a locket, a drawer where you used to hide the candy until your husband or kids found it...well, you get the idea! Don't actually compromise your own security, though. For example, don't show us a doormat and then continue to hide your spare house key beneath it! A former hiding place is probably better than one currently in use.

You know how this works, right?

1. RSVP in the comments below, thus:

I'm ready to show what was hidden! 
Working On The Railroad

It helps me a lot if you list your name, blog name and URL as above. Thanks!

2. WAIT for the Challenge date, Saturday, July 30th, to post your entry. Otherwise, your entry is likely to be buried by the time others come looking for it. Yes, you can be a day or two late, but if you are you'll probably have fewer people visiting your entry. No, I'm not worried if you post a few hours early, or in a time zone where it gets to be Saturday sooner than in Arizona where I am.

3. LINK to this blog in your entry, or even this specific post. That way, people can find the other entries, and info on how to join in the fun. If you want to also list the other Robins' entries, that will be especially awesome, I will be posting the Linking List in this entry at about midnight MST as the Challenge begins.

4. VISIT the other Robins and, if so moved, leave a comment. We all like to be appreciated, don't we?

That's it! Go be photographers!

Round Robin Challenge: Something Old, Something New

Oops! Sorry, Robins! My mental schedule was thrown off by the holiday weekend.

The new Round Robin Photo Challenge was suggested by Ruth, the ScrabbleQueen, last August. The Challenge for Saturday, July 16th is

Something old, Something new

Ruth didn't specify any guidelines, but what I'd like to see is old and new versions of the same basic thing. Old and new shoes, furniture, cars, books, or anything else you can think of will do the trick. Adding something borrowed and something blue is totally optional!

You know how this works, right?

1. PLEASE RSVP in the comments below so we know you'll be participating, with your name or screen name, blog name, and blog URL, thus:

Life Beyond Leadworth

2. WAIT until Saturday, July 14th to post your entry. A few hours early won't matter, time zones don't matter, but if you post a week early your entry is likely to be buried in your blog by the time we come looking for it! Similarly, if you're a day or two late I will still add you to the Linking List, but you're more likely to get visitors to your blog if you post on the day specified.

3. LINK back to this blog (the whole blog or this entry) from your Challenge entry, so people know how to find the other entries or participate themselves. Linking to the other Robins' blogs is encouraged but not required.

4. EXPLORE what the other Robins come up with, and leave a comment if so moved. That helps to keep us all motivated.

Got it? Good! Go be photographers!
