Thanks everyone who has voted and commented on my post, New Business Card Options (please vote for your favorite) where I ask for your input on which of three new business cards I will order.
I will reveal the decision on Monday.
Holiday Time in Seattle, WA
In my previous posts “All Aboard” the Winter Train Village and Gingerbread Village, 12/2/16, I shared photos from a recent trip to Seattle, WA to meet up with my brother and his family (who live on the East Coast but my brother had a business trip in Seattle).
To close out this series of posts, here are the rest of the interesting holiday themed decorations I encountered during my three-day weekend wandering around Seattle tourist spots with my family.
Four Points Sheraton
We stayed at the Four Points Sheraton hotel in the Queen Anne area (conveniently within walking distance of Seattle Center/Space Needle). The lobby of the hotel was wonderfully decorated:
The Space Needle
For the full “tourist” experience in Seattle, you must visit the Space Needle, which was built for the 1962 World’s Fair (google “Space Needle” and read its interesting history). We spent part of our morning on Saturday up on the Observation deck.
One of the lovely holiday themed decorations from the Space Needle:
And here is the Space Needle itself, photographed at night as viewed through strings of holiday lights throughout the Seattle Center:
It was difficult to capture in the photo, but there is a Christmas tree at the top of the Space Needle!
Walking Around Downtown Seattle
Friday night, on our way to Gameworks to play games with my nephew (and a rematching on the long standing “air-hockey-death-match” between my brother and myself), we wandered around downtown Seattle. In addition to checking out the Gingerbread Village mentioned in previous post, we enjoyed the holiday lights and decorations around downtown.
Here are a few samples to give you a little taste of the visual delights while we wandered:
The Nordstrom Flagship Store had lovely wreaths hanging from their ceilings:
The tree at Westlake Center:
The Streets of Downtown – here is the original photo I took and then the stylized photo that Google Photos (where I backup on my photo) created:
Pretty cool, huh? And, here is one more photo from the streets of downtown Seattle:
And finally, here is a scene from the interior window display at the Tiffany & Co. store in downtown Seattle’s Pacific Place (everything in miniature with a tiny signature blue Tiffany’s box and a diamond engagement ring sitting on top):
I am sure what is inside this window display costs more than I make in year…maybe in 5 years…or more!
Alright, talk to you tomorrow when I reveal my business card selection and continue with my various ramblings…
