sunshine day




















another day in the glorious seventies! knowing the excellent weather wouldn't last i took a quick romp up and down massachusetts street (the main street through lawrence) today and spied in the store windows. i love how the sunlight reflects off the windows in some of these photos and meshes the merchandise with the trees and buildings across the street. we played outside all afternoon, and finally came inside at dark, just in time for a thunderstorm to roll in and cool things down. rain all day tomorrow. sigh. it was nice while it lasted.

I loved this trip down the street with you (it's like I was almost there)...a very eclectic look at your town. Cool. And sounds like a super nice day to do it, too.
Peace & Love,

Whoa! Lots of cool and funky things on MA street! I love the reflections off the glass, too. And I had to laugh at all those 1/2 addresses. Who knew! I had to look up that Roland Young book (not for children). Apparently, it's a collectible. Thank you for this lovely stroll. It's in the 50s here with the threat of rain.

aimee said...

the red wig is from a store called miss fortune's - that's one of the tamer merchandising efforts. you should have seen the creepy baby watch display!

and yes, i instantly regretted titling this post sunshine day. the song won't get out of my head. not a good one to have on the loose.

More awards!
Watch out for more to come:)
