Arts and Crafts Post #578

These colorful paintings are on the side of a market near Luray. The round one is small compared to the flower one but beautifully rendered.

Behind the store is a barn with some young pigs and goats to view. There's a stand selling produce and plants, and a larger building with crafts, t-shirts, and local items.  I made a collage of some things we saw there. 

Mosaic Monday

Sometimes I snap a picture with my cell phone when I see an interesting display in a shop. I admit to a weakness for cute animals and shiny things. Here's a collage from a couple of small stores.
We're still avoiding crowded places even though we've been vaccinated. We wear our masks in stores. It's only a small inconvenience; not a big deal at this point. I hope you are staying safe and healthy.


  1. Linda - as I have said before, it amazes me that you can still find new murals! I loved the pig snout in your first collage. We are getting our first shot of vaccination on Thursday - so pleased! And can I tell you - thanks so much for being a regular contributor to Mosaic Monday!

  2. ...nice flowers that don't need water.

  3. All thanks to Sami for encouraging everyone to post wonderful murals.

  4. Beautiful murals Linda, the flowers and butterfly is just so lovely.

  5. Great murals I love the sun with electric hair! We are wearing masks everywhere as a way of life, I wonder whether we'll ever change!
    Have a lovely week
