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!
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.
