Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibit

I was in Seattle last weekend and spent Sunday morning at the Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibit.


I first became familiar with Dale Chihuly's works of art from my mother, who worked at Rhode Island School of Design in the 1970's, when Chihuly was a teacher there.

Here are many photos - no description needed, just enjoy!

The Glass Forest:





Many pieces were inspired by textiles:


Sealife Room:








Mille Fiore:












Each piece is separate and installation takes hours!





The Gardens:
No description needed!













The Glass House:



No photo can do this artwork justice!!  This is a "must-see" if you visit Seattle!

Husbands....


This is the utility sink in my laundry room, and I HATE it!


I saw this laundry room sink in one of the new homes in the Parade of Homes last week:


I showed the photo to my husband and the conversation went something like this:

ME: wouldn't this look great in our laundry room?
HIM: what's wrong with the sink we have?
ME: It's a utility sink - this looks so much better!
HIM: Who cares, no one ever goes in there
ME: really?
HIM: Well who goes in there?


Who goes in there? 
Who goes in the Laundry Room ?
REALLY???

UGGGHHH...husbands!!

A flowery change...

It was time to brighten up my living room windows with a flowery print....


...so I was off to Joanne Fabrics to buy something a bit brighter and cheerier for the summer...


...and of course, one project leads to another...


...so I reworked this pillow....


...and changed a few accents...


...and pulled out a little souvenir from Spain...


...and arranged a few artificial flowers in and old vase...


...and covered a few pillows on the couch...


...a quick and easy update to brighten up the room!
