New Favorite Building

I have a new favorite building. It’s in Iowa. After filling up on potluck food, I went for a walk in Ricketts. This is the last building going out of town, or the first building coming in.

a rainbow roof~ Ricketts, Iowa
not sure if it’s still a business, but I love the sign
windows that don’t see out or in~ Ricketts, Iowa
vintage door~ Ricketts, Iowa
on the building’s window reflection, I could see the mini train station and gas station down the block

In this age recycle, recycle, recycle, this building models using what you’ve got. That’s my favorite thing about it.

Thanks for being here. Hope you have a wonderful day.

    • Hi. I’m not sure. I tried to look in the window, but didn’t really see anything. My aunt Karen is going to ask around and see if there’s any history on it. She lives in a small town nearby there. I’d be curious to know if there was a multicolored tin sale, or maybe people pitched in all their extra tin or maybe someone just had lots of it. It was so pretty in the sunlight.

  1. This building looks like a patchwork quilt! I love it! The reflection in the window is amazing – it looks like a picture. Don’t you wish this place was still open as a resale shop? It absolutely models recycling. I can see posters or buttons or T-shirts with a picture of this building and an “I shopped at Nifty-Thrifty!”

    • Oh my gosh! I love, love, love that!!! Patchwork quilt is exactly what it looked like. Love what you said about T-shirts etc. What a wonderful idea that would be. I would’ve bought one for sure! Isn’t that reflection cool? I couldn’t believe how perfect it was.
