Mom was here for a visit and we had a great time going down to Toppenish to look at the murals. They are so awesome! I can't believe we have lived here for 17 years and have never taken the time to go check it out. There are 72 murals and the following are just a few of the awesome murals. Check out the detail in this one with the shadows of the people and the black silhouettes. They are incredible and painted on cinderblock.
This was my personal favorite! I love the detail and the sephia colors. If you are ever in this area it is well worth taking the tour! They also have a tradition every year of gathering ten or so artists together to paint a mural. It is called "Mural in a Day". Renowned artists come and paint a mural in one day. I just loved seeing these! They are just so beautiful!
I hope you enjoyed my post!!!

Every spring I look forward to a great little patio sale...the lady that puts it on works all winter preparing for it. She has all sorts of wonderful, creative, whimsical items, as well as great buys on potted plants and geraniums. I picked up this 8-inch pot of oregano for $10...included the plant and pot. I will definitely miss going to this little sale each year!

I'm testing Mike's new Nikon D3000 that I gave him for Christmas! I love my new print! I ordered it online. It is printed in gold leaf on slate paper and I found the perfect frame with a gold leaf edge to match. Love the little arrow on the "is". Hope it looks nice in our new home! Now if we can just sell this house! If you look close you can see my pussy willows blooming outside...how did that tiny start grow into that enormous tree???
