The Cute! The South-eastern Polish Cute!

Today the Telegraph reports that Japanese tour operators came up with a list of the 30 prettiest European towns and only one British village--in Wales--was on the list. Hee hee!

Only one Polish village made the list, but what a village! If you are a fan of colourful Slavic folk art, you must see the wonderful photographs of Zalipie. The house paintings are traditionally designed and executed by housewives. Housewife pride!

Doesn't it make you want to grab some paint and transform the shed? Unfortunately, the Historical House doesn't have a shed. And even if it did, it would be a B-listed shed, so no-one would be allowed to paint it. Sigh, sigh.

  1. Wow. Absolutely stunning! I recommend mug painting. I paint my own (using white IKEA mugs) in similar floder patterns. It takes more time and creativity than one would expect. /Emilka
