striped awnings


There is a certain charm to that of an awning.
Striped awnings certainly are chic.
Twin striped awnings, twin lanterns and twin topiaries.
I love the storefront of Timothy Corrigan.
So elegant, classical and welcoming.

 A flat striped awning seems so modern to me.
 I would love to have a ladies lunch on this porch.
Is it me or do striped awnings just seem cool?

Winners of the "pet command" -Springer Spaniel pve note cards are;
Debbie Carr
Kelly B.
I decided to select two.
Both ladies have Springer Spaniels.
Congrats to you both.  Contact me where to send the notes to!

Well it's not just you, because I join you in the "Striped Awnings Are Really Cool" Club.

Have always found them charming...have often wondered why they are so appealing, something about the stripes being a bit carnivale perhaps??

Patricia, Striped awnings are beautiful and I think really finish the look of an exterior. That extra design touch! You have captured it beautifully.
