You find such delights, brattcat!

lovely.
happy theme day!

I noticed a sign at the Wilder Homestead in Buckland that says it will be open on Sunday of Columbus Day weekend. You had mentioned, when I did a post about it last year, that you would like to see the inside.
It has poured here for two days.

Beautifully done!

Cute and charming graffiti - not the normal description! Great shot for theme day!

Jilly said...

Oh I adore this! And no surprise the wonderful Brattcat found it. My favourite graffiti of the day, without doubt.

This is the nicest graffiti I've seen so far today!

Jacob said...

That's too nice. I'm not sure you can count that as "graffiti."

No, our horses are nibblers, not scribblers.

Virginia said...

Now this I love. Well spotted.

I wish that all graffiti could be as nice as this one!

This is a gorgeous shot, and wistful graffiti.

Sunny said...

I have a prior commitment that Sunday too. I think it's open again in the spring.

Wow, it looks as if the little girl (or little graffiti...) is coming out of the wall!
God bless you!

This graffiti is charming!

Magpie said...

The color, the leaves, the quaintness of the art...all work wonderfully together.

VP said...

I agree: nice, simple and creative!

Eki said...

This graffiti is very artsy! One of the best I've seen in this month SDPB Theme Day. Those ivy leaves look as though they were part of the graffiti.

Very nice.

Giorgio said...

I like artistic and creative graffitis... not the vandalic ones we mostly have around where I live!

Birdman said...

... here's a different take on graffiti. The leaves are so artistic.

I really like this one, nice find.

JM said...

Lovely is a word that apparently would never fit a graffiti, but in this case I think it's perfect. Great find, Brattcat!

Small City Scenes said...

This is lovely and I don't think I would use the word 'graffiti' to decribe this lovely. MB

Paula said...

Is she from a book? She looks so familiar...the best of the best for this theme day.

Beautiful canvas and nature's colorful foliage adds the perfect touch. Great catch!

Carraol said...

Beautiful image and the wall art is sweet and a great work!

Amazing.

Amin said...

Interesting.

Irina said...

The first and I think the only graffiti which makes me smile, not to scrub the wall immediately. Great find, specially in leaves decoration.
