So while my Mom and I were shopping today on Montana we popped into a store called “The Quilted Monkey”. The sell these glasses and pillows I’ve seen before by catstudio with cities and states on them. I got one for every city I’ve lived in AND Martha’s Vineyard (which I have visited many times over the years).
They are in order that I lived in or visited: Chicago, Martha’s Vineyard, Boston, and LA. Little known fact: besides Logan airport, I actually went to and visited in Martha’s Vineyard before I lived in Boston!
Look at the top, you can see the North Shore! Also, Lake Michigan, Second City, Millennium Park, and the Loop! In the top you can see the real reason its called the “windy city”.
Great! Here is Martha’s Vineyard. Note the Black Dog, Oak Bluffs, Edgartown, the cliffs etc.
A set would not be complete without my favorite city, Boston! Ah, my great love:
In this next one you can see the MFA, Fenway Park, the South End, Trinity Church, Back Bay and the Charles River:
And last of all, my new city, Los Angeles!
Malibu, UCLA, Beverly Hills and Bell Air! You know, my ‘hood!
Also, I picked up this great Boston postcard:
I already had this one:
I have a little home improvement project planned with these post cards. I especially love this one because it has the State House on it, where I worked this time last year … I can add to my collection which my mother started:
Great, right? Not only does it match my apartment colors (!) but it has such a great message. My mom cleverly put it in a see through frame. While I cannot take credit for the decoration of my apartment (those snaps go to the talented Danny Mailley) I really like these little touches and I have a plan formulating to incorporate the post cards so stay tuned.
