~Northwest Flower & Garden Show & Astoria and Simple & Sweet Fridays #209~

As I promised last week,
I wanted to share photos of our trip to 
Northwest Flower & Garden Show
in Seattle, Washington. 
It was a lot of fun.

One of my favorite vendors,
Christianson's Nursery & Greenhouses.

A outdoor octopus shaped shower made out of shells.

Loved this whimsical playhouse.

Love the Mosiac Mailbox!
A special sealed card!
Even in the rain,
 downtown Seattle is just beautiful! 
We left Washington and drove to Astoria for the night.
It is a very beautiful port city.

We stayed at the Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa.
We had a gorgeous view of the Astoria-Megler Bridge 
outside our window.

That night our daughter, Katie and her boyfriend, Harry went to dinner in an old car that taxied us to a restaurant.
Fun dinner together!
The next day we drove around the city.

 It was a wonderful trip 
to the beautiful Northwest.
Next week I'll share with you
 an Easter project with these beads!
