Rock On


Over at Simplicity, the photo challenge this week is “ a corner of your house”. 

Finding a corner without dustbunnies was a non-photo challenge, but it wasn’t hard to pick a theme.

I heart rocking chairs.

My dad used to tell me that I had rocked a million miles.

Surely rocking should count as aerobic exercise.

This rocker is my indoor spot of choice,  otherwise known as “Mama’s chair”:DSC03014

Yes, it is usually full of books, and my Bible study, and cooking magazines, and sometimes the DVD remote.

In my bedroom, I have two rockers my father rebuilt.  He found them languishing at my mother’s homeplace and loved them back to usefulness.

This one is the more comfortable of the two:DSC03021

Finally, my entry in the photo challenge (you thought I’d forgotten that, didn’t you?) is my beloved porch rocker.

I probably have logged a few thousand miles in this spot.


Go by and visit Faith’s fun blog over at Simplicity.  Then go put your feet up in a comfy corner of your house.

Be blessed today,



  1. Hi Ginger,

    Thanks for stopping by today. You have posted some lovely photos of your corner. I've never heard of this blog party before. I'll have to check it out.

  2. I love your red chair with the green walls!! It looks so cosy and cheery all at the same!! time! That would be my favorite spot!

  3. Your house is beautiful Ginger! I love rocking chairs too. I have one in my house that my uncle built for my oldest son. He built my grandma the same one except hers is oak and mine is cherry. I love it.

  4. AWESOME post! Thank you so much for participating in my photo challenge this week :)

  5. As you can see I'm writing this in December. With snow on the ground and the wind howling, I went looking for a warmer season. You might have guessed my favorite photo was of the rocker on your front porch. With a lot of difficulties in my life right now, I long to just sit in the sun and rock. Thanks for the posting.
