This is for being a part of Norm Frampton’s Thursday Door link-up. Is for you to be clicking on link and reading on him blog, then for to be click at blue frog button for more. Holy gosh, I think I’ve been reading too many spomments (spam comments).
Here is my first view of KBB.
A little closer….
Okay, so here we are — Oh, wait! Let’s look at the mosaic work on this threshold!
Okay, now can we back up and see the door? We can? Okay, then.
Inside, someone somewhere along the chain of ownership (it’s been a bookstore for 20 years, but Karen no longer owns it. It’s so well-loved, though, that the new owner kept the name) …. I lost my place. Oh, yeah, inside, someone used door panels to frame the end-caps. Pretty cool.
BTW, while we were there, we witnessed history in the making: The current owner had been wanting to sell, and three friends of ours, Tony Acree (author and owner of Hydra Publications), Frank Hall (former owner of That Book Place in Madison, Indiana), and author Lynn Tincher BOUGHT IT!
Okay, that’s all the doors, but not all the pictures.
‘Cau-au-ause, across the street is this other way-cool building. I didn’t get the doors, but check out that detail and those windows and stuff.
A little way down the street was this hotel, with HOTEL in differently colored shingles on the roof. You can’t see it because of the shadow, but the second story has a balcony with an iron railing around it. One of our partners — not I, for a wonder — insisted on calling it a “hotel,” with the quote marks clearly audible. She may be right, at that.
All up and down both sides of the street were these painted paving stones, with all different pictures on them. I particularly liked this one because of the trompe l’œil. And why do they have a railroad guy in LaGrange, Kentucky?
What kind of train?
Stay tuned tomorrow and Saturday for The Cherished Blogfest, in which bloggers share a cherished object. No, not my eating utensils.
