This is a shot going into one of the courtyards. There are a few different building in the complex & an Italian restaurant st the edge of the larger one.
This is someone's "window"...it was a loading dock, but now is part of someone's living room. It's also makes a nice frame for their Christmas tree during the holidays.
Of course, I think every city has this.
The building in the background is a newer building(1948), but still part of Liggit & Meyers. Work has begun to revamp those buildings & they've opened a wine bar in one. Hmmm.....I bet y'all would like to hear about that. I'll have to check it out.....just for you.
The old Durham Bulls stadium. If you watched Bull Durham, you've seen this stadium, but it's a little nicer now than it was then. A buuuuunch of money has been spent on the grounds & buildings in the past year, but it's still used for festivals & ballgames, but not the Durham Bulls. You can see the old mascot still painted on the side of the warehouse in the outfield.
Here's the ticket booth. It looks a little meloncholy without a little face poking out of the window
Well, that's it for now. I've started working on something new..maybe I'll get it ready by my next post.

Warm Vanilla Sugar Type( not too sweet & with a little bit of musk undertone)
Love Spell Type (very crisp smelling)
Jasmine (light jasmine scent..very clean)
Lavender Blossom (light lavender scent..very clean)
Island Kola Nut ( warm, but not too sweet & that is coconut you see on the top)
I knew these were going to be wonderful when it rained all day & the soap got a little sweaty. I don't know the real reason, but maybe I've figured it out. Glycerin attracks water & it was raining. If the bars were sweaty, (not sticking or oily), the glycerin in them is attacting the moisture from the air. Glycerin =softness & yumminess. It's all very scientific really...obviously....especially the yumminess. I used to make soap & I really enjoyed making soap, but not getting stuck with 5 pounds of the same soap whenever I wanted to "play". I'll leave it in the hands of the experts.
