Color Story: Seattle Gum Wall

I don’t have a lot of time tonight, so I’m going to share the very colorful photos from my visit to the Seattle Gum Wall last weekend. The wall is located in an alley underneath Pike Place Market. The wall definitely lived up to its gross reputation. My favorite part was the strings of gum […]

Color Story: Seattle

Reporting for duty on day 1/30 of my September blog challenge! After I made this ridiculous promise to myself I got a little worried that I would run out of topics. I started jotting down ideas on a piece of paper, and was surprised to have come up with at least 25. I have also […]

Finding Magic

Sometimes a few days can pass by, one day blending into the next. Nothing special, nothing to recall. And then sometimes, something magic will happen. If you’re lucky, you’ll notice it. If you’re smart, you’ll capture it as a reminder that beauty is always just around the corner. This was what was waiting for me […]

Color Story: Columbus, OH Murals

Today I’m sharing some images from my trip to Columbus, OH in December. One of the things I love about the city is that vibrant murals seem to be everywhere. The murals really brightened up the city during the cold week I spent there. Most of these images are from the Short North. I wish […]

List it Tuesday: I am a sucker for…

I’m joining in List it Tuesday over at Artsyville today. Only I’m responding to last week’s prompt because I talked about how much I love Portland in my Oregon anniversary post a couple of weeks ago. I had so much fun mixing all of these colors and painting little paint chip cards. I could see […]
