Who says a door has to be just one color? I adore this jolt of creativity.

Childhood Nostalgia

I didn't even know these were still available. One just like it was my first gun. I notice that the packaging says for ages "8 and up." I'm pretty sure we played with these "underage."

Roadside blazes are common in the summer. They're usually started by tossed cigarette butts, although if a vehicle leaves the road, a fire can also be started.

Real Idaho potato sacks for the run. Hop. Hop. Hop.

The Alley Behind Freak Alley

I like that the historic Alven Mercantile reference is weaved into the graffiti projects.

The gift shop at Miss Tami's Cottage and Tea Room. This is where you eat the best Monte Cristo in the world.
