#travel2013 - denver

This time last week I was in beautiful, and unseasonably warm, Denver, Colorado.  Today I am back at work, cold, and watching it sleet in Chattanooga.  Yuck.

I had never been to Colorado, and I was thrilled to have the chance to go visit friends in Denver.  I stayed in the 'hipster' part of town, so, laundry mats, shopping, a two story goodwill, more shopping, movie theaters.... was walking distance close.  That's something I'm not used to, but it's really nice.

I'm going to do something different in this post.  It's going to be a lot of pictures with captions.  I think this will be a little more fun, and easier for me to do while I'm at work. (shhhh)  It's also going to make it easier to pin the pictures I took of things I couldn't bring home.  (double shhhh)

Probably the best part of my trip.  I went to visit a musician, but did not expect to hear him play.
The best thing in the world is seeing your friends excel doing what they love.
I'm completely spoiled to have so many friends who fall in this category.
I love meeting new people, especially artists.  Sitting in on this jam session made me happy.
Since I stayed with musicians, we went out to see live music too.  We hit up Cervante's for
their 10 year anniversary show w/Motet. The good thing about having musician friends is
they know how to pick out good music.
One of the guys had two fantastic dogs.  Bentley looks and acts like a cat.
He's shy, but once he gets to know you he's a cuddler.
Weezer (100 lbs of love) was OK having me around, but he never quite gave up his spot
on the couch. He just chilled on top of me instead.
The neighborhood I stayed in was neat. Lots of houses with cool architectural
 details and fun colors. There was a lot of personality, and I liked it.  This is
what I walked past getting to the shops on South Broadway.  The rest of the
pictures are from the shops here.
Yarn Bombed!  The shop beside this tree sold new clothes made from vintage fabrics.
Such a shame I took a picture of the booze and not the food.
The food at The  Hornet was so good I ate there twice, lunch & brunch. 
I'm not sure how I feel about this edition being in a vintage bookstore.
This little guy would have found it's way into my luggage if it we're $95!!
L-O-V-E these clear, stemmed, cordial glasses.
Lots of fun and funky handmade jewlery.
So much of what I saw belongs in my house. This belongs in my living room. 
This belongs over my kitchen sink.
This belongs in my kitchen.
These belong on my porch. For my smoker friends. Because I'm a good hostess.
I'm not sure where, but this just belongs, if it works.
Love these chairs.  I'm looking for something like this for a desk.
This belongs outside, above my future outdoor dining room table.
This belongs at the head of my dining room table.
The end


  1. Looks like you had a really good time! Love those dishes, too!
    Have a wonderful week-end!

    1. Thanks Lea! Hope you had a wonderful weekend as well.

  2. Looks like so much fun!! I've heard so many great things about Denver. I love that old telephone. I'm sure you could make that work just about anywhere, though I think it would be great fun in a bathroom!
