things and places for homes and gardens

Three unrelated neighborhood features

chicken coop
1. One of the nicest chicken coops I’ve ever seen. Something similar could work as a greenhouse, without being a garden eyesore.

2. A nice, simple version of a rain chain as a gutter downspout alternative. I hope the water is captured in a reservoir below to water the garden.

3. Cartola is a wonderful coffee shop down the street. You really can’t sit and drink a cup of coffee without hearing someone come in and compliment the decor. It is beautifully done in all respects, but it’s this image, and the juxtaposition against the wallpaper, that always draws my eye. I don’t know who the woman is, I’m not sure if it’s a reproduction of sorts of something/someone famous, or if it just looks like it could be because of the outfit. Either way, I just love it.

    Very fun. The antlers are certainly a contrast to the lady in the hat.

    Hi Megan~~ The wallpaper is perfect for a coffee shop. I love the picture too but if I may write candidly, the owner needs to lose the animal horns. Gross. Just me.

    The chicken coup looks more like a greenhouse than a dwelling for fowl. I wish I could clone it for my garden. Gimme!
