Graffiti Alley

If you meander around the Station North district in Baltimore, you just might find this almost magical hiding spot!

It's an L-shaped alley near the intersection of North and Howard full of vibrant artwork done by a number of locals with the property owner's permission. It was hard to capture to totality of really have to roam around it yourself. Even the the ground underfoot and the dumpster are tagged, and its gated entrance is an incredible piece of ironwork itself!

(Please note - if you're not Baltimore street-wise, you want to bring a couple's not a tourist area.)

Boycotting the final week of school was a fabulous idea, I must say! Without spending 4 hours a day chauffeuring, I found a lot of time to do some much needed things around the house in between making lovely flowers for once.

After what looks like 40 years of being painted shut, we carefully opened one of the side windows in the boys room. It's so very old school European! It opens out like a door on hinges, and lets me do my favorite thing ever which is hang my head out and daydream...especially lovely in the Baltimore rain.
