Sorry to leave you hanging last week, I had to go out of town for work and I didn't take too many electronic devices...strange, I know. I've been having trouble with my laptop and I recently ran over my cell phone (posted about here) and I don't have everything reloaded, yada, yada, yada.
But here I am now, when I should be cleaning my house for guests tonight, writing to you 'cause that what I do...adding pressure to my life by my own doing! In my defense, I just had to write, that's why I'm a blogger. The compulsion to write is overwhelming sometimes and I just love connecting with the few readers I have.
Hey, I'm giving you a little TMI, so without rambling on right now, let's roll with the pictures.
We came across this furniture grouping on a brief stop while heading to the Denver airport in a small town called Buena Vista, Colorado. We saw a park, needed a break, the Arkansas River was close and thought we'd walk a bit to get the kinks out. VOILA! It was a hot day in Colorado (isn't it everywhere this summer?) and when I touched the furniture(?), it was hot too---cause it's tiled---everything is mosaic! Stangest furniture I've come across in a while, but I LOVED it. More of an art display than one would expect in this setting. SURPRISE!
Here's a close-up of the seat cushion of the sofa. So crazily creative, don't you think? I just loved the whole concept and execution.
Details of the back of the sofa. Of course, I start thinking, ooohhhh, I've just got to blog about this and then I start wondering if the tile wasn't custom, where the idea came from, what was the inspiration etc...curiosity just peaking everywhere and no one to ask!
The coffee table details...the chest pieces were stationary.
Love this shot with the kayak in the background! This may be the only time I can write that sentence in a post.
Well, of course, there had to be a footstool too! Duh...what furniture grouping done in mosaic would be complete without one? :)
As we went toward the river, here's the signage we found and my heart said a little prayer of thanks for the Rotarians who made this wonderful display possible. The Rotarians do such wonderful work in the world and if you don't know about their work in erradicating polio in the world, it is a story that will make you weep with gratitude AND they do their good deeds so silently. I live with one, so I know about this fabulous group of people and I am happy to acknowledge them to you.
Hope you enjoyed this a little bit and I'm awfully glad you stopped by.
