During our trip to Colorado, I managed to sneak in some shopping (I know, I know I said I was on a spending freeze, but this was vacation and I controlled myself).
First stop was the Brass Armadillo, a HUGE (and I mean huge) antique mall in Denver. I found some old prints that were 50% off.
This 1902 Charles Dana Gibson print cracks me up, I had to get it.
Sucks to be that guy ha!
I also purchased this beautiful 1945 Audubon swan print:
We stopped in an art gallery in Georgetown where I got this beautiful original watercolor. It's called "Summer turns to Fall" which I love, because Fall is my favorite season.
The swan and the trees have been added to my growing collection of art that will someday make up a large gallery wall installation above our family room couch.
My BFF Erin bought my this GORGEOUS Amethyst necklace in a rock shop in Georgetown. She got a matching one.. yeah BFFs forever! (you can never be too old for matching BFF stuff, right?)
It just happen to go perfectly with the dress I wore to the wedding:
THANKS ERIN!!!!!!!!!! Love ya!
I also purchased a BEAUTIFUL sculpture that my husband was not too happy about.. because it needs to be shipped to us. You guys, it's amazing. I cannot wait to share it with you.
Not only will I cherish the memories made in CO, I'll have these beautiful pieces to always remember our time there.
