Corner View:: Souvenirs

This week's corner view theme is typical souvenirs from your city. I did not snap photos at the local shops, but here are the typical local souvenirs we have in our home...The book is quite lovely, really, with many snowy scenes and healthy, outdoorsy, stylish ski folk pictured. The others are silly little things: the photo is of my sister and me skiing Vail; the mug shows Eddie in his first ski lesson ever (he's skiing through the "car wash"); the Birds of Prey is the run on which they hold World Cup men's downhill races; the sheriff's badge is from our little local rodeo; and I bought the sweatshirt at the World Championships, which were held here in 1999.
Enjoy seeing all of this week's corner views here:

Yes, I can't imagine Colorado without skiing though we usually go to Utah just because it is a little cheaper.

Hello Liza, I must admit mugs are my weakness. I used to collect them until I run out of place in my cupboards. I would definitely bring one from Colorado as a souvenir!

Thank you for sharing!

Great Vail souvenirs! They are not cheesy like the typical CO stuff. Isn't everything in Vail prettier!

Happy Day!

Oh, and I ditto everything on your 'I Would Like List'! Great taste!

I would love to have a look at that book..it sounds so like me..outdoorsy, healthy, stylish. Not!
;) But by reading it I might become inspired to be all that. One can dream.
Enjoy your weekend!
