Another visit to the kid in Bellingham found us cruising downtown, looking for color. NW Handspun Yarns http://www.nwhandspunyarns.com/ 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
