Photo Challenge ~ Closer!

Over at Razmataz this week, the photo challenge word is: Closer. So I decided to take a series of photos ~ getting closer and closer until what you thought was one thing, actually is another!






This is the lovely bookcase my husband made me for my dining room.



Lots and lots of great titles and few little decorative items. I just love the color of books!



"The Big Secret" is a favorite book of mine because on closer inspection.........



When you tip the book to the right, it turns out the bookcase opens up and it is actually a door to the attic. Ta da!

  6. Wow! You must feel like you are living in a Gothic novel full of romance and suspense. I love the sign above the bookcase - that gives a first clue, I realize, to what may happen. Love it!
