This downtown building houses “Satya,” a men’s clothing store, situated across the street from the historic courthouse. (You can view a bit of the courthouse in the far-right window’s reflection.) I am fascinated by the building’s details: the arches over the windows, the molding, the repeating patters of circles and diamonds. The circles seems to have intricate designs that are either painted or cut out. Do you notice the small “plaque” between the windows to the right? Even zooming in, I can’t read the date, but the word above the date is “Seigel.” I wonder — is that the name of the original business?
This one of those shots I wish I had taken better — but at the time I couldn’t figure out how. The downtown window (of the building in the above photo) was full of the most stylish men’s shoes. It just held my attention — and still does. I guess part of it is that I’m fascinated by men who enjoy wearing nice clothes.
“Even a blind pig finds an acorn…” You know the saying. 🙂 I’m proud of this pic, but also aware that it’s a lucky accident.
The word lucky makes me think of the good things in my life. I’m grateful: a loving family, kind friends, a good job, a nice camera. But I’m not any better or more deserving than folks without those things. God gives hard-road gifts, too. I’m never thankful for those. Hmmm…I guess if I believe all things come from a loving God, I should be.
It was an overcast day — perfect for photography. Hope you like the colors of downtown. (Taken last week thereabouts.)
A reader asked for Fall color — and FINALLY I captured some! This season has been rough in getting good autumn pictures. I struggled with the slight differences in the above pic and this pic. Which do you prefer?
Last pic from the Anderson Holiday Fair. I LOVE this lady’s jewelry — and predictably I can’ t find her card. *UGH*
I love drama done well — and Pat of Bird Mountain Creations knows how to create a beautiful, bold statement. I wish I had better pics to show — but this reveals just a bit of her original designs. Love the color. Check out her web site for necklaces, bracelets and earrings.
These ladies were really sweet and fun. They found themselves next to each other at the Anderson Holiday Fair and hit it off. They both make jewelry — very very nice stuff. The differences in their personalities come out in the stones and metal — as does their talent.
I love blue. I love cute animals. I love cool crafty stuff. So, you can imagine my delight when I spied this bag at the Junior League’s Anderson Holiday Fair. (Notice the red patterned lining? It makes me want to set up my packed-away sewing machine — RIGHT NOW!) Using left over bird seed bags, the designer Shane Sisi (who introduced me to the word “up-cycle” 🙂 ) creates the most adorable hand bags of many sizes. Must order one. Now.
Dawn was the first vendor I encountered when entering the Anderson Holiday Fair. I was immediately taken in by her clean designs — and cute ideas. In sparkly crystal! So cool. Unfortunately, I did not get a good photo of her apparel or flip flops ( which are adorable) — so I hope you will visit her web site here to see what this talented chick can do. T.L. Hanna High School fans will be charmed I’m sure with this crystal yellow jacket. (Westside High School fans, no doubt a ram is on her to-do list. 🙂 )
