Journey or Destination??

Some days I really wonder about the whole journey vs. destination thing… sure seems to be a tug-of-war at times.  But, it IS mostly about the journey, isn’t it?  When in doubt, I love this snapshot of the Hagerman Tunnel trail that I took back in August – no destination in this picture, just a great hike!

What do you think??

Colorado Inspiration: Turquoise Lake

What a great inspirational snapshot from my perch above Turquoise Lake near Leadville.  Colors, shapes, textures, clouds, water, trees… need I say more?!

Out of the Studio: Red Door, Coal Room Demolition, Camping…

I notice that I’m not the only blogger that has taken some time off this summer from regular blogging.  At the beginning of the summer I knew that I would have some out of the studio time in July and August to work on home renovation projects and travel a bit, including a solo camping trip to one of my favorite spots in Colorado, just outside of Leadville.

So, in my effort to get back into the swing of things, I thought I’d post a few snapshots from the last 2 months of a few of my outside-of-the-studio activities!  I’ll share more about my favorite camping spot in another post.

After 11 years in our home, I tore out the original coal room from 1899 in our basement.

Red doors might be cliche, but we've always wanted one.  The "right" red is tough and I got this one on the first try: Behr "Heirloom Red".
