The Ice Cream Shoppe is the second building in Summerville (following the Beach Huts) and it is too sweet for words! I wanted this design to mimic details of ice cream with it’s scallop-y shutters and peaks. The diagonal stitching on the rooftop has a waffle cone look. And of course the colors are very sherbet-like!
I added a little service window and scalloped shelf on one side for taking walk-up orders, naturally. And a felty double dip cone on top for the signage.
Of course for my research I had to visit several ice cream parlors, you know, just to be sure my details were authentic, *wink*.
