    This loks like a wonderful place and those colors are a real treat. I think the flowers in the lavender box are my favourites.

    Thanks for allowing all of our eyes to wander with you in this brightly colored space! Like taking a mini-vacation for the visual senses.

  3. I love to stroll around artist colonies like this one. Are these mostly painters or other kinds of visual artists too?
    The shot with the pink shutters against the blue wall is a stunning color combination. I wouldn’t have thought to match those shades together, but it’s really eye catching, especially with the pink flowers.

    • Jackie, all kinds of stuff: jewelry, gourds, photography, pottery, glass, etc. etc. A lot of the shops have changed since I lived here four years ago, but the decor is prettier than I remember.

    I don’t know what I like more, the artist atmosphere or the vivid colors. I guess you can’t separate the two. It’s all fantastic.
