Wardensville Random-osity

The Good: For Heritage Weekend, the town of Wardensville put up signs telling the stories of various buildings. This made for an interesting walking tour. (You can click on the image to see it larger.)

The second building in this combined image is now an arts center. We enjoyed seeing the work of some very talented artists.

The Random: In the Star Mercantile, I found a couple of murals. The longer one has a cut-thru in the lower left, revealing a room behind it.  The other one is partially obscured by a display shelf.

The Fun: Frank found a friend in the mercantile!


  1. Fun post Linda and nice to see your hubby making friends with the bear. Thanks for stopping by. You really made me laugh with your Rosie the Ribbiter quip.

  2. Hello, I love the pretty murals and the bear. Great shots! Have a happy Tuesday!

  3. I've been on a couple of self guided historical tours with booklets in the past and they are a joy to take.
    It appears as though your hubby is dancing with the bear. :-)
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  4. Old houses tell such interesting tales.

  5. The mural work is beautiful. I can imagine how much that bear weighs!

  6. The murals are pretty. I especially like the second one with the deer.

  7. Hee Hee ... nice to have a fun shot.
    Great murals.

    All the best Jan

  8. Wow lovely paintings, and funny bear! They make those wooden bears in here Finland too. Thank you for the tour!

  9. Update: The long mural was painted by Roger E. Heishman, 1946-2016.
