A very cool Hacienda Door....I only just now noticed the Quail on the top beam!
Here you see the stylized sun symbol of New Mexico on some street side planters....nice touch!
One of the old building facades...that is original, antique purple glass in those transoms! What I wouldn't give to have a window pane of antique purple glass in my stash! And check out those corbels and the other whatcha-ma-jigs on the top! It was also a very nice red, white and blue colorway....fitting for the occasion.
A cute, colorful store front. Small towns seem to be so much more colorful than big cities.....can the same be said of the town inhabitants? ;-)
Cool architectural detail. They just don't make 'em like they used to.
A very cheery contribution....even the curtains inside look cheerful.
Mid Century Modern in tha House! Or rather, in the small town.
This is something I've always wanted to try....glass bottles set into a wall. This was at the top of a stucco courtyard wall and it was sooo neat!
My kids and I made a game of finding 'Art'
We found some.......
And this stunning piece of moulding on the side of a building, at eye level no less, was my favorite sight of the day.
Love Love Love Love Love this. Color, shape, detail. Did I mention I love it?
And of course, since it was the Fourth of July, there were plenty of flags lining the main street.
I'm glad I 'stopped and smelled the roses' or, in this case, 'took in the eye candy'
I'm not a small town convert yet....I like my city with all it's fodder for distraction, but it was nice to slow down the pace just a little.......
