Visiting way too many thrift stores!

I spent as good part of yesterday shopping! Shopping for probably the last thing I could possibly need. More vintage linens! But I do have a plan, well sort of. I am dyeing fabric in a few days. Just had to buy more!It's fabric after all!

I think I found a new place to buy jewelry! Oh my...
The entrance to Fremont Vintage Mall

This one's for you Janelle!

Seattle must be Art Fair City

Art Fairs make Seattle such an exciting urban city. I took some time off over the weekend to visit one!

Smoky Seattle

SEATTLE — Smoke from wildfires clogged the sky, blotting out mountains and city skylines, delaying flights and forcing authorities to tell even healthy adults in the Seattle area to stay indoors.
Air quality alerts are in effect for much of Washington state through Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

And if that wasn't bad enough, ash started falling from Tacoma to Seattle and beyond Monday night.

Police Picnic

Free food, live music, and fun! Gave me a chance to ask a bunch of questions and listen to great music!

Check out the 'bomb" truck!

Gustav Klimt

Image result for Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer IGustav Klimt. Gustav Klimt (July 14, 1862 – February 6, 1918) was an Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement. Klimt is noted for his paintings, murals, sketches, and other objets d'art. I love his paintings!

Sometimes inspiration comes from unexpected places!

The Frye Art Museum

My favorite - The Frye Salon
It seemed odd to me (it's beautiful sunny day), but at the last minute I went to the Frye. 

The Frye Art Museum is an art museum located in Seattle. The museum emphasizes painting and sculpture from the nineteenth century to the present. Its holdings originate in the private collection of Charles and Emma Frye. Charles, owner of a local meatpacking plant, set aside money in his will for a museum to house the Fryes' collection of over 230 paintings. The Frye Art Museum opened to the public in 1952, and was Seattle's first free art museum. 

The painting is wonderful, and oh the frame!
Sunday the 5th is the last day to see a wonderful exhibition called 'Towards Impressionism: Landscape Painting from Corot to Monet'. Towards Impressionism traces the development of French landscape painting from the schools of Barbizon and Honfleur up to Impressionism, featuring over forty works from the extraordinary collection of the Musée des Beaux-Arts, Reims, alongside works from the Frye Founding Collection.
