Village of the Arts Houses of Many Colors


Village of the Arts owners must have a Crayola Box the size of Texas because almost every house has been colored...


There is a lesson here in all the colors...


We should all take lessons from Crayons
Some are dull
Some are beautiful
Some are ugly
Some are bright
But they all manage to live together in one box...

Our Village is in trouble, I hope they manage to pull it back together.. I found an article in our newspaper of plans to further develop and restore the village HERE

A blogger friends pig, Wynonna went over the rainbow bridge. If you would like to see how she lived for 18 years read this Remembering the Porcine Princess

I have mixed feelings about expanding the village - and I don't even live in Bradenton. lol

I hate to see something delightful get too big. BIG might spoil the quaintness of the village and make it less fun for someone like me to visit. But that may be just me. ;)

I love your photos, especially your crayon graphic.
I read the article. Like you, I hope these plans will be good for the area.
Hope you have a nice day.

These are just the cutest houses ever.

Yes, I just a few minutes ago, before arriving here, heard about Wynona. She had lots of fans, including me.

You are amazing! I love that crayon photo superimposed on the brick. Good grief, how do you do that magic?? And now I'm going to go read up on the piggy. So sorry for the blogger. And BTW, I had a disaster occur here this morning. My entire Feedly list disappeared when I deleted cookies at the instruction of a techie who was 'helping' me get Firefox to open my Etsy account. Unfortunately it still doesn't work, but I now have to log in with password to every single thing all over again AND I've lost my entire Feedly list and my GFC list. :-(((((

I've really enjoyed your crayon box posts! I think they should expand all over the whole wide world.

LindyLou Mac said...

Wow, there are some brightly coloured houses there!

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

Love the colors...and some good advise!

Linda said...

That photo of the crayons on the brick wall is stunning!! It would make a wonderful poster. I could look at that all day long!!
Colorado Springs (actually it is Manitou Springs) has a whole neighborhood of 'Painted Ladies.'
I am afraid I am just not gutsy enough to paint THAT boldly!!

Some very creative coloring. And the crayon box on the brick wall is super.

Susannah said...

these little home in this one area are so cute! I love all of the colors. Some of them look like small cottages that you see at Kim's lake. Some I like better than others but color is color! I really like the pic with the crayons and the brick wall. You are so very clever!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Thank you for sharing more of the homes. I just love them and the colors make me feel happy.

A Quiet Corner said...

Love what you did to create your box of crayons!!!!...:)JP

Ginny said...

HOOTIN ANNI said...

LOVE the purple one best of all.

Inger said...

What a cheerful place. It made me smile, big!

SweetMarie said...

I've cried over Wynonna this morning. :(
Love your photos! And I wish we could all get along like crayons in a box. :)

Ann Thompson said...

Those are some very colorful houses. I hope they are able to keep your village going

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sandra, this is a beautifully co,orful artist village and after reading the article I am unsure whether expansion would be a good thing or not. It seems those in the village are in support. Sorry to read about Wynonna, it's hard to lose a beloved pet. Also thanks for Krysta's email and I did send her a short note.

Rose said...

Oh, I so love them all! But especially the one that is kind of coral/reddish color...I always think people get too uptight about what looks good together. Just look at nature...everything is all thrown in together and we love it all.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

I really like the purple house.It's cute.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Yes. I wish the whole WORLD could get along like a box of crayons. Sigh.
Love the colorful, cute houses! The first one is my favorite.
Have a great weekend!

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

Charming little village, I hope they stay that way.

Linda said...

I've been catching up on your recent posts. They're all so interesting and cheery, especially the plants and the Village that has been painted up in such a creative way. Each house is beautiful and unique.

Marie said...

Oh my! All those colors remind me of the houses in Tucson...not the same style, but the love of color is definitely there! I should do a post some time just on the colorful houses here!
