The answer: Minneapolis

I can't believe no one guessed that yesterday's Mystery City is Minneapolis! The giveaway is the red and white circle art at Target's downtown worldwide headquarters! Target also had this Chihuly glass art in the lobby:

We weren't there for Target -- we went for a wedding, and what a fabulously colorful ceremony it was. It took place in the lush, sunken gardens of the glass conservatory at Como Park in St. Paul. The bride's dress was a luxurious cascade of frothy ruffles in the back, and the front came up to her knees revealing her black combat boots! She's a singer in a rock band, and she did a great job of combining her rock persona and her traditional side.

The wedding colors were black and cream.

She sang her way down the aisle, while the groom played guitar.
Now that she's part of our extended family, she has to go through the tradition of being on the blog.

In my quest for color in the city, I shot these cool salt and pepper shakers at one restaurant and the embroidered table topper at an Indian restaurant.

And here's the obligatory photo from the airplane, always good for design inspiration:

Check back tomorrow
for a very special book giveaway!

Brrr...that view from the plane looks cold! Especially after the pics of the lovely flowers at the wedding. I think my goddaughter would approve of the bride's attire.
