A Little Bit of Winter Fun

On these darker, colder, rainy days it is still important for me to get my walks in for some exercise.  I have been trying to motivate myself so I find things that are entertaining. Yesterday I went into town to do a couple of errands. Mr. Penguin dropped me in South Hobart and I walked the 20 minutes into town.  I took my camera and decided I would look for art work as I went along.

I did my errands and then of course ended up at Fuller’s Book Shop for a hot coffee and a warm apple turnover that was very nice. Their winter guide to books is available now so I sat down with that and ticked the books that looked good. I’ll see if the library has them as there are just too many to buy.  I have been reading my TBR from my shelf but I do like to support the library as I believe they are important to a community.  Even if I don’t get time to read everything I still like to check the books out.

I digress….. the walk turned up the following photos:

I always enjoy walking past this old advertisement. 
This mural is on the Artery Art Store wall. I love the Japanese theme.


The following art work is in frames on the back wall of the art store.









I passed these dog sculptures while walking back to the bus.  I have always enjoyed seeing them.

I got the bus home just before the skies opened up with rain. Snip20180527_1

I live a retired life in Tasmania, Australia. I love books, travel, animals, photography, motor biking and good friends. I indulge in all these activities with the little Travellin' Penguin who has now shared five continents with me. We love book shops, photography walks and time with friends as all our family is in USA and Canada. I enjoy visitors to my blog so hope you'll stop by.

  1. Loved the pics, and the name of that shop, Artery Art.

    But most, I loved “Even if I don’t get time to read everything I still like to check the books out.” You put me to shame!


  2. I’m glad you were bundled up in your beautiful purple scarf and hat! I love it when a community has public art, including that wonderful advertisement. Thank you for sharing your winter fun!

  3. really like the art; the styles remind me of Daniel Mroz’s work: he was a Polish artist who did a lot of drawings for Stanislaw Lem’s novels and stories… and i’m bemused by the window in the middle of the music building: someone wanting the window exactly in that spot, regardless, and, secondly, how did they ever construct it? i imagine a person with gritted teeth standing before the wall on the inside and blindly swinging a sledgehammer as hard as they could, fearing no consequences!!
