Neighborhood Food Coop

Can't stay away from murals. This one on the outside wall of a neighborhood coop depicts the wares sold inside. It is the ONLY place in town where I can find Rachel Perry cosmetic products (not tested on animals); what a wonderful accidental find after I searched high and low.

Today in Minnesota History: 1928 -The newly finished Foshay Tower, which would be Minneapolis's tallest building for nearly fifty years, is strung with lights and lit up like a Christmas tree. (Reference: MNHS.ORG)

  5. Your town must be a very colourful place with all these wall paintings around. Ah well, it's a long and honourable tradition - first caves, now the walls of buildings.

  6. Your murals are sooo awesome. When ever I see one around here I always think of you. Perhaps I should take a shot of few here. Not so sure they would be as awesome and wonderful as yours :) :)

  7. I really like the mural but I'm wondering how big it is? The Santa is a cool dude, though maybe its just me, he does look a little tipsy :)

  13. My dream is that someday I will find ONE store that carries all my favorite things. I'm interested in one-stop shopping.

    You've presented another wonderful mural here, Kate. Thanks again and again and again.
