Pink Saturday

Good Day Everyone,
I joined Beverly's Pink Saturday and this my first time playing.
Hope you enjoy it!

First off is a vignette on one of the little side tables in my living room. These are all shells (except for the big one) that I gathered on the beach in Cancun. I put them in a silver tray with a little nest and pink mushroom bird, crackled white pot and pale pink rose ball.

A french label for you to copy and use however you wish

A Chihuahua in a pink sweater

How about a pink Rolls Royce?

Is there such a thing as too much pink?

You decide

If it's what you like, I think not.

Have a great weekend!!

Thar She Blows

It's a blizzard out there...
Well we are finally getting our much needed moisture. The last measurable snowfall we had here in Denver was January 12th. March is generally our snowiest month here followed by November, and so far we have had 0 snow this month til today.

This is what it looks like out the front door, snow has blown all the way to the stoop and that ring around the tree normally sticks up about a foot out of the grass.

This is looking out the front window. The little birds are hanging out at the feeder and the front porch. They don't seem too bothered by the storm.
We are all home snug and warm as the boys are on Spring break. Hmmm... this always seems to happen on Spring Break around here. Oh well, I think it's a good day to watch a movie and cuddle up by the fire.

Have a great Day All

Not That Bad

Ok, so I guess my last post was a little cryptic. Denver isn't all that bad and there really are some lovely places here and in the mountains. I think I am just having a bad case of Spring fever, and we have had a really dry winter so I'm ready for some green.

Just to show another view of Denver, here is a picture of City Park looking towards the downtown area, and the mountains off to the west.
Of course this is in Summer, right now it is brown and dead.

Now on to something else that's pretty. I wanted to show one of my favorite Artists. Well two artists really, the husband and wife team of
Cart Before The Horse.

I have been following them for quite some time on E Bay and just recently found out they have a blog. This is one of their items on E Bay right now. I just love it!

I would love to bid on it, but just paid my son's tuition for the semester so I'm tapped out right now. That doesn't keep me from window shopping though. Check their other items out too, they are awesome.

Where I am

This is where I am....

Denver, Colorado
Unfortunately this is what most of the city looks like all winter long, and some of the Summer if we have no rain.

Some of the mountain areas are a little better, but it doesn't get much greener than this.

This is where I wanna be....

Washington State
Green, moist and cloudy, Ahh.

Or even Oregon

I definitely live the wrong state. Most of Colorado is dry, brown and just plain ugly except for areas of the mountains. Denver originally had no trees, we are on the plains just east of the Rocky Mountains. There was a lot of scrub brush and dry grasses and that's about it. Oh and a lot of sun. So if you like the Sunshine this is the place for you. Personally I get tired of the sun beating down on me all the time and at the high altitude it is brutal. I love the rain, and the green, and overcast days......

Ahh well, back to reality. Here's to dreaming of green places.
Have a great day everyone,
Tracy M.

Oh and on a side note: check out the blog below for great free graphics!!

The Vintage Moth..: I'm back!
