Weekend in Seattle!

I just returned from the beautiful city of Seattle.  My first vacation long?  5 years?  6?  I only had a few days, but I spent every moment exploring the city, taking photos, finding hidden treasures...and now I get to share it all with you!
Today I'm sharing photos from the sites at Seattle Center.  Above is, of course, the Space Needle.  Celebrating its 50th birthday this year!  Look at that blue sky!!! 

Check out these photos of the outdoor exhibits at the Chihuly Glass Garden.  Yes, these are all made of glass!  How cool is that?  I hadn't realized glass blowing was such a popular art in Seattle.

Got lots of pics of the EMP and park sculptures, but I'll finish my post with these photos of The Birches.  Again, beautiful art made even more stunning by a perfect blue sky!

I love this city!  I've been fortunate to visit Seattle four times and to never see a single drop of rain.  So, I might be a bit biased.  But the art, culture, friendly people, fresh/local/artisan foods, outdoor activities, little doggies everywhere....I could live with that.  Especially if I had one of these amazing rooftop gardens....  Okay, back to reality.  I had a great time and can't wait to share pics of Pike Place Market, Watson Kennedy, All Saints (my new favorite store, sorry Anthro!), local architecture....  And I came home with so many great project ideas!

I hope you had a happy Memorial Day weekend and took time to remember the men and women who gave their lives for our country.
