At Home and Garden Art, LLC in Seattle we found a beautiful maze of repurposed and recycled metal that kept us entranced for about an hour. Some of our finds included........
Oops, almost lost Cheree in the maze!
A beautiful rooster repurposed with metal from New Zealand
A french-inspired chimnea
Not the most comfy bicycle seat in the world, but a cool addition to your garden!
And our favorite......rusty stuff!
We continued on to our remaining adventures and sifted through cinderblocks, old radiators , abandoned school lockers, old trunks (some not so nice), crates, ovens, fireplace mantles, stained glass windows and anchors.
Sometimes we just stand and stare for awhile at something until it tells us what it's new purpose will be.
In the end we scored a few things for a thrilling new chapter for With A Twist: A permanent space in amazing Historic Snohomish, WA! Stay tuned next week for details! We are going to be busy and dizzy with excitement as we prepare.
As usual, we ended our day with amazing food at La Isla, a Puerto Rican restaurant in Ballard followed by a Cupcake run at Cupcake Royale. When I learned that *GASP* they didn't sell Gluten Free Cupcakes, I jokingly asked if they would squirt frosting directly into my mouth for a pick-me-up, and to my utter joy, they had already thought of that idea and prepared a "frosting shot" for me! I can tell you that the Cream Cheese Frosting is heavenly, and they even put sprinkles on top! Cheree ordered 4 cupcakes for dessert for her family, but polished off the Lavendar one by the time we got on the Highway. Must be that good!
Whether it be spoonfuls of frosting or old rusty metal, we hope you find something this week that brings you complete joy!
