My friend Joan introduced me to my new favorite store. Watson Kennedy .  If you ever get a chance to go it's in the Pike Place Market area on 1st Ave. in Seattle.  This store has such amazing merchandising.  They do fantastic color stories with their displays and it makes the most frugal of shoppers want to open their wallet.  If you manage to walk out of the store without a purchase in hand...I can promise you that you will leave the store with your head spinning and full of great ideas.  I was able to ask the clerk if she would allow me to snap a few photos to share on  my blog and she was so great to let me.  So if you can't make it to Watson Kennedy here are a few peeks into their great store...Hope you enjoy!

Have you got your field trip to Seattle planned yet?

The last several weeks have had that know the one...the smell every spring when the cherry blossoms are at their peak and the lilacs are coming into bloom.  I walk in the evening and just as I turn the corner I see the light post with the beautiful glass lamp buried in the blossoms way up high, glowing pink, and I breathe.  I    B R E A T H E   D E E P...again and again and again.  I can't get enough of the smell.  It brings me back... back to a time...a carefree time of laughter and playing, getting dirty, building forts in the woods, staying up too late and loving every minute of it.  A time of dreaming...such good dreams.  I love this smell.  I love it when it gets carried by the wind which lovingly drops it at my door.  I'm thankful for this smell and how it fills my soul.

Keep dreaming!

Saturday was a fun day in Seattle.  I loved capturing all these amazing textures with the camera.  I love old buildings...they have stories to tell.  Check out the pieces of buildings that I took pictures of.

Then there were the iron gates that were very cool...

Now for the slippery glass texture...ummm...what do those people think they are doing up there?  Are they not aware that glass is slippery...especially curved glass!

They just couldn't pay me enough!!!
