Colorado T

hope you enjoy the “falling snow” that WordPress added to my blog for December (for some reason WP is not allowing clicking on photos like they did last month??? shame because I usually title the photos to give a bit more information)…

  5. I just love Colorado. My DH and I have set our sites on Glenwood Springs and are talking to a realtor about renting a home for a few months there next year…..a trial run before we purchase a home. Your photos are beautiful as always. Thank you. and Happy Tuesday.

  6. It took a while for the snow to start on my computer, but it’s the kind of snow I like…just for looking at. Sounds like quite a trip, especially at this time of year across states that can get some fairly unpleasant winter weather. So glad you enjoyed your visit with your son.

  7. What an awesome sculpture in the first photo! love the combination with mosaic…and that you remembered your traveling tea cup. It’s so fun to see what you get up to…happy T day!

  8. Missed your posts so it was a lovely surprise to see that you are back – good to have you back but what an amazing trip you surely had – those coffee shops look wonderful, couldn’t help but zoom into the lovely cushions and vegetarian chilli, yes please!
    Such a long trip but I hope your journey was smooth and of course, spending time with your son would make such a trip so worthwhile.
    Wishes

  9. I missed you too dear Patty!
    Enjoying special time with family is so important.
    Eating out and having fun together is what memories are made of!
    Your little blue teacup has stored up lots of these wonderful memories – she seems to be a member of your family too! LOL
    Oh the snow looks magical too.
    Hugs

  10. You were missed Patty. Colorado looks like a lovely place. I’m getting quite an education in geography from all my fellow bloggers.

  11. What wonderful photos of Colorado, they make me a little homesick, and I’ve been in CA for 50 years, but CO will always be home.
    Great shots of all the mugs, and your traveling mug….LOL
    Happy T-day

  12. I was SO worried about you, and when I saw your name come up, I was simply thrilled to see you were back. I’m a worrier, so missing you was top priority for me.

    Where to begin. Maybe the first photo with the sculpture set up near a chess board? Maybe the tea shop with the hands as part of the logo? Or maybe the teacup itself. It gets to travel and enjoy so many wonderful adventures, And as always, I love it that you bring us along, too.

    Thanks for coming back just in time for me to NOT put out a missing person alert (grin) and for joining T today.

  13. It looks like you had a lovely visit with your son in Colorado. The scenery is just beautiful, and your little tea cup looks like they enjoyed, too!

  14. Love the photos off your travels. And you hit COMMOM GROUNDS…..our friend worked there for ages! And did you get a DAM coffeemug? Glad you are back safe and sound! Catch a nap later! xooxoxox

  15. Looks like you had a wonderful trip! Stunning scenery and the best visits include lots of tea and coffee! Hey! It’s snowing! I love that! Julie Ann xx

  18. Long trip but I’ll bet it was worth it to get to spend 10 days with your son. A traveling tea cup is a great idea. Looks like you went to some great places and had some delicious food.

    How DID you get it to snow on your blog?

  21. here is how to make it snow on WordPress blogs:

    Go to your dashboard.
    Navigate to Settings » General.
    Check the box next to “Show falling snow on this blog.”

    easy peasey

  32. Welcome back Patty!! So happy you were able to spend so much time with your son in gorgeous surroundings! I could just taste those crepes-yum! And speaking of-love the vegetarian chili in the mug. Do you think you might persuade your son to share his recipe? I’m still searching for a GOOD veg. chili. Looking forward to hearing of your next adventures-including your heartthrob’s concert :)

  33. Kind of amazing that I discovered the little snowflakes falling on your blog JUST as I was listening to ‘Let It Snow’ on the radio – great timing! Looks like the traveling tea cup had a grand holiday.

  34. Thanks for the tour! Looks like a great (and delicious) trip.

  35. aaaahh, so beautiful pictures…as always. the sculpture is really great and a brilliant winter impression but brrrrrr don’t like the winter.
