Bread Art

Color my world. You can do it here. It's the front window of the Artists & Craftsman Supply on Deering Avenue at Woodfords Corner. If you are and artist, you can fill your bill, so to speak, here. All shapes and sizes of paper, brushes, portfolios, paint and any other artistic odds and ends. When I stop by, I usually pick up a post card or two of writers, artists or musicians to dot my office wall. If I'm hungry, I'll stop off at the Big Sky Bread Company next door in the old firehouse. While you're buying supplies, the aroma of their freshly baked breads is hard to pass up. It almost mesmerizes you and sucks you inwards. I'm especially fond of the Honey Whole Wheat. Standing in line there, it's hard not to envision that kitchen back on Coyle Street on a Saturday afternoon, with that cast iron skillet of rolls and those two to three loaves of homemade bread cooling on the sideboard. No wonder Marchin loves his bread so much.

  1. It's exquisite to be able to smell bread baking, isn't it? I'm curious. Are you able to stop by these two splendid sounding spots on foot?

  2. There is a big Wonder Bread bakery that I used to pass on the way to work. The smell of freshly baked bread would almost pull me off the road.

  3. This may be the best corner in the universe to Mr. Brattcat. He loved the art supply store and he could never resist bringing home pounds of granola from Big Sky.

  5. Colourful plus lines and angles...very nice! Art supply shops are the best! Then again, perhaps bakeries could compete in the competition of senses.
