"Oncle Hansi"


Isn't this adorable?
I was drawn to these delightful signs in Colmar, France. 
The village is proud of their artist known simply as "Hansi" or "Oncle Hansi" 


These cute designs represent Alsatian folklore
with a sense of humor and delight!


Post cards everywhere...


Here's an old one I found with a drawing of the hotel we stayed in,
Hotel Maison des Tetes,
with Saint Nicolas in front.





And here is my own personal version of a traditional maiden of Alsace....




Passez une bonne journee'.....

Love the signs!
You didn't bring one home for the river house?
