Murals In Huntsville

Today it's super gloomy & rainy...yuck...So it seems the perfect day to share some colour, so I thought I'd show you all some photos from late summer that I forgot to post...

We go to a sweet little town called Huntsville every summer, it's about 2 hours from us.... 


The main street is so sweet & perfect to spend a couple hours on any hot sunny summer day...


The signage is old fashioned & gentle...(one of my pet peeves with today's society is our annoyingly loud & brash liking for super big, over done & repeat signage...& don't even get me started on fluorescent lettering!)....Huntsville seems to know how to do signage tastefully...like their pharmacy sign...love it!... 


I love just walking & exploring this place because besides being next to a lake, it has some of the best cottage-style stores, an all year xmas shop, one of the cutest little bookshops on the planet & fantastic little cafes, they also have these amazing murals scattered & hidden throughout the whole town...

...I did a post on Huntsville last summer...these are some new murals ones I found ...


...I wish I could paint like that...aren't they beautiful?  As far as I know they are all by the same artist & I bashfully admit I didnt' bother to collect that name...but there you go...some amazing murals full of movement, life & colour...now we just have to ignore the gloom & wetness outside the studio windows..


Have a great day everyone...see you Wednesday.

Ah...Huntsville :-) Our city could learn a few things from them for sure...
