Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

Outdoors in Mainstrasse

I am joining in another Outdoor Wednesday celebration. I promised more photos of Mainstrasse Village in Covington, Ky. This is the end point of the Longest Yard Sale. A quaint area of shops, restaurants and clubs as well as private homes.

Story book streets of old buildings with a definite tilt towards German style.
Small gardens filled to the brim with flowers and darling fences and gates.
The Goose Girl fountain at the town square.
Chez Nora jazz club and restaurant with it's rooftop deck for star gazing.
Charming streetscapes.
A lot of history here, where North and South meet at the Ohio River.
Do you love these buildings?
Such detail. I believe that top one should be my studio, wouldn't that be lovely? Sigh...
Ivy covered garden walls.
Bountiful flower beds.
Quaint, quaint, quaint.
Look at this entry, to die for I tell ya.
Come visit me sometime and we will explore, and shop and eat and sip cocktails while enjoying a little jazz by the light reflected on the Ohio. As I said, I love my Cincinnati but Kentucky has the best view.
Blogger is going nuts lately, my last photo disappeared while I was typing and now I can't get rid of the line under my post. Oh well, go visit the other outdoor posts at A Southern Daydreamer. Hopefully they won't be underlined.

Have a wild Wednesday, P.
Pin It!
