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!

Flowers, flowers, flowers.....

I have no green thumb....I have planted flowers that require little care...

...Roses, day lilies, gerbera daisies...


....iris and daisies...


I dream of arrangements like this one....

...but I keep forgetting to water the plants!!

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 ?

A flowery change...

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