Google+ House Revivals: V is for Vault

V is for Vault

This week's alphabet meme letter is "V".  I thought about writing about the TV series "V", which I love, love, love, but alas it really doesn't fit the mission of this blog.

I do have the other blog, which is sort of a "catch-all" for topics that don't fit here, but I don't have time for two posts this week -- because, I think, just maybe, if I cross my fingers tightly enough, we're going under contract on the BEACH HOUSE this week!

And it's really hard to type with your fingers crossed.

So, this week I'm writing one post about vaults

Really, though, I won't write much, because it just takes too long (since my fingers are crossed, and all). Instead, I'm giving a pop quiz!  Hopefully Mrs. Matlock won't mind.  I'll even give you the answers-- just try to match the answer to the correct picture.  Easy peasy.

Here are the pictures:

And here are the answers (click on the word to cheat or to see the image sources):
Dome Vault
Barrel Vault
Groin Vault
Pole Vault
Rib Vault
Fan Vault
Bank Vault
Radium Vault
Vault Beverage

And there are prizes!  If you get all the answers right, without cheating, your prize will be a really good feeling inside.  If you have to cheat a little, your prize is that you learned a new thing today.  Good luck, and thanks for stopping by!

This post is being linked to Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.


  1. Hi! Guess what??? You won spot 2 in Alphabe-Thursday's letter "V" linky.

    I will post you into that spot!


  2. I hope you get the house. Enjoyed reading about vaulted ceilings.

  3. Thanks for the lesson. I think I have failed miserably. I would cross my fingers for you also but I just painted my nails.

  4. Oh, I'll keep my fingers crossed too some of the time LOL. I hope you get the house. Maybe next week, we'll be hearing that you got it.

  5. Fingers crossed that you get to vault into that new house, without having to rob a vault!

  6. all I know is the pole vault, at last I think a little education now and then isn't so bad

  7. Fingers crossed for your beach house! I love learning new things, and this post certainly accomplished that! Kathy

  8. There are three that I don't know, so I'm just guessing on those.
    Fan Vault, Radium Vault? (cuz i figure it would have to remain locked up) , Barrel Vault, Vault beverage,Bank Vault, Rib Vault? (cuz those beams look like ribs), Groin Vault? (cuz it's the only one left over), Pole Vault, Dome Vault. LOL. I don't know. But it was fun to guess.

  9. yeehaw ... i learned something new today ... oh good luck on the beach house ... keep those fingers crossed!

  10. This was fun! Hope you get the house!
    Take care! (I won too!)

  23. My personal favorite...the groin vault. I think I did that when I was in the delivery room with child number two.

    What a fun link to Alphabe-Thursday's Letter "V"!

    And since I got only two of the questions right not only am I left prizeless, I am left feeling like a dork.

    But that's OK!

    And that is an A+ in my book!
