{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} Small Town America

I took a little photo excursion into our little town.  I love this old sign.  

Black and white gives it a real vintage flair.


Wingnut Jr. was having a blast jumping his scooter in the neighbor's driveway.


I call this "Tin Roof Rusted".  I just cracked up when I discovered this corrugated tin out building with a lovely painting displayed on its exterior.  I found the dissonance funny.


In our small town, very few of the shops are still operating along Main Street.  It's probably typical of many small town America Main Streets.

You know, this is the third post I've read about small towns this week. I live in a small town and just adore it. Our main street looks similar and when we first moved here there were a lot of empty places but amazingly some of them are opening up. One became a pizza and sandwich shop in which the breads, desserts and most of the items on the menu are made from scratch.

A local family opened a hardware store and a photographer moved into another. It's so nice to see these old buildings coming to life again. As I told another "small town" poster, I need to do a post about our small town.

Thanks for sharing pics of yours!
