Mosaics of Oak Bluffs


Hello everyone,
I hope you enjoyed your weekend. We had some cold weather move back in but it is milder for this week.

It is time again for Mosaic Monday so I am sharing some photos I took a few years ago on a trip to Martha's Vineyard. These storybook cottages are in Oak Bluffs which started out as a tent campground for open air Methodist church services but later they built these charming cottages.
Wouldn't you love to see inside these charming cottages?

I love all the interesting architecture.

It is such a beautiful place that I would love to go back someday.
I am happy to report that my son fixed the problem with my computer so that it is much faster again making it more fun to use!

Thank you Mary for hosting Mosaic Monday at the Little Red House


&

Thank you for visiting me,

Carolyn

Fantasic mosaic. I saw a show on these cottages and it was about maintaining them. The painting was labor intensive but just look at the lovely results. Beautiful photo's. I can only imagine that you gardens are coming to life by now.
