Here are a few:
1. "the fireplace commenced its seasonal roar" (this could also be an example of personification, but only if it is the roar of a person - I see it as the roar of an animal, perhaps a huge bear, and thus metaphor)
2. describing a hat, "a straw cartwheel corsaged with velvet roses"
3. Dusk turns the window into a mirror
Remember that a metaphor is a comparison without using the words "like" or "as" (which would be a simile), so look for things that create a picture in your mind of something else, as in the case of the window. It is not a mirror, but at dusk, it looks like a mirror. Writing "dusk turns the window into a mirror" however, is a much more beautiful way of making the comparison.
