just driving by

we went to the mountains to ring in the new year. we drove through ashville, nc, on new year's day. i took two pictures. this one, and one of a lady dancing in the park alone with her ipod. i don't know what this building is, but i sure love the windows. blogging has opened my eyes to things like this. i know that may seem strange, but reading other people's blogs has taught me to pay attention in a different way. maybe so that i have something unique to share. or maybe because i read someone else's post that inspired me to look at things through another's perspective. or maybe both. anyway, i am grateful that lately i have been enjoying things that before i might have missed somehow.

We certainly all gain a lot from being allowed into other's worlds. For that, I am grateful. Thank you for giving me a peek into yours!

I know exactly what you mean about looking at thing differently. It's a gift to be able to appreciate the beauty in everyday things. Jen

i think it's some delightful lady who has an art studio with quaint balloon shades and tea every afternoon at 4:00...or maybe a ballet studio...or a cute little nursery school...

I can see why you took a picture of these windows. I love the color and the curtains. And yes we want to see the dancing lady.....she must be a free spirit.

It is such fun to see the beauty in such things isn't it? Your pictures are so lovely and I always enjoy your blog. Thank you for the peek into your life and home. It is wonderful.
Oh, I LOVE Ashville. : ) I have not been there for a few years...lucky you to have been there recently!

Yup...same thing has happened to me! I just look at things differently now...and see photo possibilities where I never would have thought of looking before.

Interesting..yup it pays to have the camera at all times!

I swear I saw that bldg. years ago when I was there and I think it is an ice cream plant with a store front where you can get a cone.

Yeah, bloggers are always the ones taking pictures of things out in public that you wouldn't normally take pics me one day with my Cappucino in my hand hanging out my car window, LOL.

i so wanna go...i'll meet you there, say, 2:00-ish on's that sound? I'll be the lady who looks fat, but is pregnant, but no one knows and thinks she's just getting pudgy (aka: fat).

Those really are great windows. It's a nice thing to look at things differently.
