Tell the Truth! Do I look like a BEAR?

We took a leisurely walk down Main Street in Hendersonville, NC one day.

Lots of memories!

(We almost bought a condo in this building across from Mast General Store. It would have been fun, I think!)

Old ‘stompin' grounds’ for me.

Lots of unique and eclectic stores.

Have you ever seen a wicker motorcycle?

The wicker motorcycle is fun for a window display.

Lovely downtown to browse around. You and the bear have almost the same colour scheme on ... he just needs some sunglasses. :)

You look great next to the bear and I hope you took him home for the garden.

Arlene Grimm said...

You look lovely standing next to the BEAR!! My mother's maiden name is Henderson so I have always had a soft spot for Hendersonville. That downtown makes me want to visit it!

I wish my mountain town was cute. It's really not much to look at. This was a fun post. Makes me want to take a day trip to somewhere cute.

Shug said...

This town looks so charming, Diane. I love walking down the main streets in old towns like this. It's one of my favorite things to do. I always come home with a few goodies. Wow, a wicker motorcycle, very cool. Did you buy anything for yourself?

love,

Kathy said...

I'm just laughing out loud here. (And I need a good laugh today.) What are the chances you and the bear would be dressed alike?

I love this little town. I would have lots of fun walking down that street. Too bad you didn't buy the condo.

What a lovely place to window shop. Love your bear twin.

Uh, no! And I think I would love living in that old building.

Vee said...

What a charming community! Lots of interesting shops and things to see! No, you do not look big, but then neither does the bear! In hindsight, did you make the right decision about the condo?

Deborah Montgomery said...

haha, you are funny. Looks like a wonderful little town.

bj said...

I would have really liked living in that old building when I was younger. And, nooo, that bear doesn't make you look big...:)
