I Woke Up Bright and Early!
This is the daytime view from my 19th floor room at the Minneapolis Hyatt, Downtown. I’m looking right on the Nicolette Mall (which is a main street running through downtown — full of restaurants, bookstores, and, well … you name it).
I ventured out to find a cup of coffee and was taken by the abundance of quiltspriational art, fountains and public places.
This amazing sculpture is in front of an old Presbyterian church (the one you can see from my hotel window). It’s spectacular!
Look who I ran into . . .
I ran into Vic Dadika and his son, Craig. Vic is a big-wig Northcott sales person! He’s an amazing man and I think so very highly of him. He hosts very popular (and lucrative) “VIC DAYS” at shops. If you own a shop, you should schedule an appointment for a “VIC DAY.”
… And he bought me breakfast! LOL
On the way back to the hotel, I noticed that even the manhole covers were art in Minneapolis. Very quiltspirational, turnips!
This plaster work was above a window on a downtown building. Wouldn’t you love to see this in applique? I sure would!
Thursday is Market Day in Minneapolis
Nicolette Mall is LOADED with tons of vendors — food, art, herbs, freshly grown produce. The locals were going WILD.
There is street entertainment EVERYWHERE … Here is a “play” that was going on in a park.
You know I’m loving Tea Tree Oil soap. I found a woman who had a homemade soap stand and bought some of my fav! The homegrown company it’s made by is called The Soap People. To link to them, click ———-> HERE
And since I am going to be here for awhile, I bought some flowers for my room. I love fresh flowers and even a small bouquet warms up a hotel room. I always buy flowers for my hotel rooms. It makes a difference in how the day turns out!
I found this shirt in the window of Brooks Brothers. Hate it. I think it’s great quiltspiration for a calico quilt but the shirt? Yuck.
But Look At THIS?!?
Also in Brooks Brothers! I don’t even know any screaming, flaming anybody who’d wear this get up.
And the pants should clearly be filed under WTF?!?
WHO ON EARTH WOULD WEAR THESE?!?
