Show & Tell {Littles Grocery}

I'm trying to be quick about getting my Show & Tell posted this morning, so it will be short!

This is a framed print we have in our living room:


Years ago, when we still lived in Calgary, DH had a friend named Ian who had this picture in his house.  We admired it, because it had the Coke signs featured, and when Ian was getting ready to move, he gave it to us.  Unfortunately we know very little about the picture - where this store is located, or even who the artist is.  Ian thought that it was one of a series of pictures of small-town Canadian stores, but we haven't tracked down anything to substantiate it.  The scenery reminds us of any number of locations that we've been to in several provinces, and there is nothing other than the name of the store - Little's - to help us narrow it down.  So we gave up, and just enjoy the picture for its Coca-Cola-ness and what we presume is its Canadian-ness.

For other Show & Tells, and to participate in our weekly showcase, visit the charmingly CANADIAN blog of my friend Mary, aka CanadaGirl

That really does make Coca-cola feel Frosty doesn't it? Now to get that little bottle out of that silly coke dispenser that I am certain is inside that store.

because of Jesus, Bobbie

That would fit right in on our walls. My dad once said, "All your pictures are of old houses and barns!" :-)

That's a nice picture!

Although it could seem lonely and cold the Coca-Cola gives it friendly familiarity.
