Sunday Morning Ritual: Cheat Day Mini Donuts from the Farmers Market

I love sundays! Since sundays are the days when I can indulge in sweets and other goodies that I avoid during the week, I really relish the trips to the Hillsboro/Orenco Station Farmers Market to get these yummy cute mini donuts. I get just 3, and they're always warm and perfect and covered in cinnamon and sugar, mmmmm...... Guilt-free treats!

Cute Overload: TULLE

Total cute overload! I'm up in the Blue Ridge Mountains for the second time, and one of the first things I did after checking into our SPECTACULAR river cabin, was go back to this amazing little dress shop here in Blue Ridge, GA that I've been thinking about for the last year. It's called Shooting Star (no website, and the business is for sale, btw) and it carries a lot of clothes by TULLE. Bought this amazing red white and blue skirt that has incredible tailoring. JUST adorable.

I went to the TULLE website and it's just filled with the cutest clothes and super-affordable prices, especially since lots is on sale right now.

Street Art: Outside Powell's Bookstore in Pearl

Obama Art: Ray Noland

Been trying to figure out the source of this art:

and I finally found it: Chicago artist Ray Noland. He's done several other cool Obama stencils on the streets of various cities, like this one in Philly:

and including this one of Obama and crooked Governor Rod Blagojevich,

He's got a pretty amazing portfolio beyond the street/Obama art as well.

More street art posts to follow - It's one of my favorite things to explore and photograph, online and on-street.
