I took these photographs of a vintage red retro diner in Milford, CT back in 2013.

It was located at the south side of South Broad Street, after the intersection with Factory Lane. I say "was" because it was physically removed this week and is being sent to Indiana.

Here is my 2013 blog post of the Coca-Cola sign.

The first photo is my entry for the following:

This is 1 of 3 posts of photographs that I took of gravestones at Union Cemetery in Easton, CT this past week.

The sky was still overcast from a rain storm that passed through. The grey skies and bare trees seemed to give the gravestones a spooky appearance.

I was hoping the Eastern Blue Birds would be here again, but it might have been a little too cold for them to be out this time. The sky was still overcast from a rain storm that passed through. I almost didn't notice the leftover water droplets on the blades of grass.

I almost missed this gravestone all decked out with patriotic US flag stars, Christmas Santa Claus stakes, a pinwheel, and a Poinsettia.

"Music Roses Butterfly (Cigar Box #2)" - Wood Box

I made the same music roses butterfly wood box as this one, using a paper cigar box, so this is box number 2 (#2).

I painted over the paper using Martha Stewart Vintage Gold Metallic Paint (346 433 / M18121), and applied two coats of paint. I created top, front, back, side and bottom panels for it, and decoupaged them onto the box after the paint was dry, using Liquitex Gloss Gel. I used two layers of Delta Ceramcoat Gloss Interior Varnish (clear coat) over that. I left the inside of the box unaltered.

I'm going to try to sell this at a cigar store.

I created this using GIMP 2.10.4.

The vintage images are from an Internet search. (See the side of my blog for links.)
