Love old rural /small town building advertising. The murals were so full of color and made such a bold statement for the product they were promoting. It is wonderful to see that some small towns are keeping these wonderful “ghost signs” updated with fresh paint so the legacy of these old ads can live on… […]
Today we ate Mexican food and this was the sign in front of the restaurant. Of course, we ate on the patio and it really did feel like spring! I am loving the warmer weather. It’s going to be a great spring with lots of fun adventures!
Here are a few iPhone photos from stock show earlier this year. Always easy to spot something fun at the stock show. This is antique mural on wall. So wonderful. Isn’t the cowgirl darling? Loved this tee shirt logo. I should have gotten it. Bet our livestock would have taken notice! How cute is this […]
My friend took this photo of the street lights on Main Stree in Roswell, New Mexico. So very clever using the alien connection! I think it is hilarious! Marketing at it’s best.
I have a life long friend who is a very talented artist. She lives and paints in the beauty of New Mexico. She paints people, still life, landscapes, horses and longhorns. Her works are amazing. When visiting my blog, Julia, asked if she could try painting a few of our farm animals and of course […]
I am a huge fan of the beauty of old vintage building advertising (some call them ghost signs). You can find the most wonderful ads and artwork on old buildings in small town America. I am adding this to my 2011 travel list of special things to photograph. I hope this spring I can hit the country […]
If you are ever traveling through Eureka, Montana (population 998) then you should must stop and take a break. This is the cutest little town with lots of darling shops and it is home to the Bubba Burger. This burger is made from a mesquite-fired patty with spicy Cajun sausage, jumbo shrimp, chipotle sauce, and cheddar cheese […]
A friend sent me photos she had taken of the most fun and interesting art I have seen in years. The artist is Patrick Dougherty. His art is termed “stickwork” and not only is it beautiful art, it also shows that you can combine simple pieces from nature and make them into something monumental and dynamic. My friend […]
Cowboy snapped this rainbow a couple of weeks ago with his phone. We did not notice anything until I loaded photo into my computer. Look at rainbow. Then view the store banner. Just about says it all. (This photo is best viewed if you click on photo to enlarge)
I spotted this clever sign this summer in downtown Eureka, Montana. What a great name for a massage business!
This is my wonderful cow bull which now graces my den. His name is Emmit and I truly love him. He exudes an abundance of energy, strength and personality and he puts a smile on my face every time I look at him. He is very dynamic hanging above our fireplace. I have had so much trouble trying to capture a photo that really […]
I am honored to have a dear friend who is a talented artist. Her art is amazing! She paints lovely still life and she also paints unbelievable landscapes and nature. Her passion is painting National Parks. Her work is beyond beautiful. This summer, Bigfork Museum of Art & History, will be showcasing women artists. “Celebrating a Summer of Women” […]
