Hiking in Telluride

Hi all! We're back home after a few terrific days hiking in breathtaking Telluride, CO.
We loved our active getaway. My husband and I hiked thirty miles in three days, up and down 10,000 feet total. Our rewards were lots of solitude, phenomenal views, marmots and pikas, old cabins, wild flowers like crazy, and (of course) chocolate. We have Grandma, Grandpa and Auntie to thank for our sojourn; they whisked Eddie off to Disneyland for some magical days of their own. I may play with instagram and post a few more pics, just because it's fun! I hope you've had a beautiful week. I look forward to catching up. Have a great Friday!

update: we took photos 2-8 on this trail, 9-11 on this trail, and 1, 12-15 sort-of on this trail.

Pretty Montana

Hi. Popping in to show you an idyllic spot just outside of Livingston, Montana. Ahhh, if we win the lottery...
This is beautiful Crow Hollow Ranch. And how I'd love to spend some time here!
From the broker's website: "This majestic property...encompasses diverse topography which includes 478 acres (198 +/- deeded, 280 +/- leased), over a half mile of Suce Creek, mature aspen stands, ancient cottonwoods, grassy meadows, lush forest, and mountainous elevations tucked privately into a dramatic valley.
"Bordered to the east by Gallatin National Forest, and BLM lands to the north and south, the ranch attracts large populations of moose, deer, and many other species of wildlife [hmmm... me thinks grizzlies and mountain lions??!], while providing convenient access to over 900,000 acres of wilderness. Virtually surrounded by magnificent mountains, [and] just 8 miles to downtown Livingston..."
I hope the weekend is happy for you. We're away tomorrow to Telluride for a few days. Catch you when we're back. Thank you so much for your kind comments on yesterday's post and for visiting this week.

Some 1st Dibs Love

Hi and I hope you're having a happy Friday. I'm gazing at just a few things that caught my eye on 1st Dibs this week...
I hope you have a beautiful weekend.
On a heavier note, please keep the people of Colorado in your thoughts. Our state is having a rough summer. First so many fires, and now an awful shooting. It's so sad.

All photos from 1st Dibs.

Sunken Garden

I'm thinking this would be a lovely spot to spend an afternoon...
With some fresh lemonade and a few design magazines?

Nadine Sage

Happy Monday! Was the weekend good? Ours was relaxed, with only a few trips out of the home! We did visit a terrific art show in town and I found this lovely little decoupage glass tray made by Colorado Springs artist Nadine Sage...
I'm so pleased with it, and I really liked Nadine too. We chatted for a bit; she told me she is originally from Prince Edward Island, hence the sweet seagull subject matter of my tray. Nadine has a beautiful website featuring her original papier collé artwork, her belt buckles and trays. Here are some of the works I loved:
She also has a gorgeous blog that's right up my alley. Do go have a look!

We're Home from a Beautiful Wedding

Hello! We're back from a big week in Kennebunkport, Maine where we were guests at my sister's wedding. She married a wonderful guy. We loved spending time with the two of them, his family, our family, and the whole crowd of friends. We had a ball! We're still reminiscing about how happy and beautiful it all was...
I wanted to share some photos family, friends and I took...
and we squeezed in some great beach time too!
I hope you're having a beautiful week! Thank you so much for visiting.
