Santa Fe Crossing

Town Mural

 We have some wonderful, talented artists in our town. I am so fortunate to live in a community where their artwork is displayed in local restaurants, our newly built library, the town square and professional collections found in an art center.

I love this mural of the Santa Fe train crossing painted on one of our store fronts. For more blue and yellow photo participants, visit Blue Monday and Mellow Yellow Monday.

Farmer's Market Sign
Do you have a local farmer's market in your town? Ours is every Friday in the town square. Other nearby towns, about a 15 minute drive from us, have their market days on Saturday. I love the country living lifestyle!

Book Sharing Monday: Smiling Like Sunshine

Awhile back, I shared a post about Magic Train Ride. The above photo reminds me of a journey I took as a little girl on the train to go see my grandma, who lived way far away. 

Journey Home From Grandpa's

Hop in the yellow car and look out for all the other forms of transportation on the way home from Grandpa's. A beautiful, double-page spread at the end features all of the colors and modes of transportation from the story.
