Arizona Celebrates!


I spotted this large heart above a jewelry store.  How appropriate!  But, today is not only Valentine's Day, it is also Arizona's Centennial!  The state of Arizona is 100 years old today!  I've added a photo of the Arizona State Capitol with a little vintage touch to celebrate the day!

i like your vintage photo very much, except a pet peeve of mine is that Arizona should never have built that modern State Office Building towering directly behind the Capitol dome.
