Visited friends in Colorado last week and had a grand time. This girls trip was planned around being outdoors and all I can say is wow! The weather was perfect- not too hot and not to cold. Lots of walks and hikes taking in all nature could provide. It could not have been more glorious. […]
My grandmother had a love of everything New Orleans. She and my grandfather’s best friend lived in NOLA and they visited him many times throughout the years. I think my grandmother loved antique shopping there more than anything and my favorite little table came from there. I also love New Orleans. I love the architecture; […]
Last month I attended a Memorial Service for a friend’s mom in Alpine, Texas. While there we visited Marfa and Fort Davis also. Wow, this was the most gorgeous area with the most unbelievable mountain area. We were not able to view the Marfa lights because of a few evening storms, but we did manage […]
For as long as I can remember my grandmother had a stack of unused paintings stacked in the bedroom designated for the grandkids. The closet was a typical small closet for a house built in 20s and it was very stark and clean with a few toys on shelves to the left and on the […]
I was in NYC for the first time last week. The sights, sounds and smells will last a life-time. My senses awakened with all the beautiful holiday sights and sounds. What a glorious place to visit during the holiday season. I am so glad to have visited and toured NYC. I have many favorites and […]
Santa was already front and center on my London visit in October. Loved this Santa as only Selfridges could do. All I need is a British phone booth!
When in London we took a little side-trip one afternoon to Cambridge. What a sweet town and an amazing university. The Avon river runs throughout the university and punting is the outdoor activity that everyone was enjoying. Students, professors, families and tourists all were all out and about in the beautiful October weather. It seemed […]
The Arch is one of my favorite tourist places to see in London. It is placed directly off of Oxford Street in Hyde Park. The arch was designed by John Nash in 1827. It was originally meant to reside in in Buckingham Palace area and serve as an entrance, but was moved in 1851. It is very beautiful. It […]
The one tourist thing most likely for me NOT to do? The London Eye. I do not like high places and even when I used to ski I could never go to top ski runs as it terrified me. Afraid to be on top hotel floors. Cannot be on a tower where you are looking over […]
On our recent stay in London we lodged at The Arch Hotel which is just two blocks from The Arch. Great location and great staff at this smaller boutique hotel. Of course I found this picture in the hotel sitting room right off the bat. Have to love the simplicity of this art. Made us feel right […]
Blogging has not come easy the last few months. To complicate matters I have also been gone the last few weeks. I am hoping to focus more on blogging this fall and that means I must get out and take photos. I am challenging myself to keep my camera handy and to find the fall beauty […]
I found this beautiful old structure a few weeks ago in the middle of nowhere. I am thinking in the 1800s there may have been a tiny town with a few other buildings with it. If so, none are left except for this wonderful building. It was actually very large. I peeked in windows and it is […]
My sweet friend was able to travel to L.A. area a few weeks ago and I don’t mind telling you that I might have been just a little jealous. While she was walking on beautiful sand in the warm weather I was sitting here freezing in icy weather. I am now “California Dreaming”. This photo will […]
Here are a few additional Colorado photos I wanted to share from my girl’s trip to Colorado Springs. These views were all taken in Garden of the Gods. Pikes Peak is in the background of all three. The last photo was taken on a mountain drive to the divide which was an amazing drive and scenery.
