This old Main Street commercial building in Colorado (and the old town jail building behind it) have been converted into amazingly creative spaces.

The main building currently houses a bistro and a private residence upstairs, while the stone jailhouse out back is now a small art gallery.

Have a look at the storefront building…

Hope you had a good week!

We are still riding the roller-coaster of having our house on the market – which, as you might know, is NO FUN at all!

We are going to try to do a little getaway this weekend… something to do with hotsprings in the Colorado Rockies… I’ll try to take pics but I may just forget the camera and relax this time!

Have a good weekend!
