Color in Bellingham

Another visit to the kid in Bellingham found us cruising downtown, looking for color. NW Handspun Yarns always delivers. Here's the tree outside their shop.

Here's another decorated tree, but this one is by Mother Nature in the Sehome Hill Arboretum on the Western Washington University campus:

Make.Shift Art Space is really colorful outside and inside and was having an exhibit on Iceland.

It has exhibits, music, artists' studios and a member library.

The staircase leading to the library looked great going down (above) and coming up (below).

Back at the kid's apartment, we did a photo shoot of her coordinating thrift store favorites, a striped wool sweater and crocheted afghan in those 70s colors.

Then we indulged in the highlight of the trip -- Julia's chocolate-coffee pie that was to-die for even though it was vegan. (Actually, I guess it was less to-die for because it didn't have all those unhealthy animal fats.) Note her thrift store plate.

Have a colorful day

Those trees are really, really great. Not sure I would care for the Vegan stuff. lol

Have been mucho busy with volunteer activities, but am back in the loop now. I enjoy all of your posts, but LOVE the ones of Bellingham - you & Julia have such fun! I like the wrapped trees but am wondering how on earth they stand up to all that rain? AND, I think it's absolutely wonderful that Julia's into all that retro "stuff".

I'll have a piece of that pie, now - will she share the recipe?
