Scenes from Seattle

My feet are finally planted back in New Orleans, but I am already missing the fresh air and temperatures in and around Seattle. You cannot beat the Northwest in the summer.



Here are some other photos that were in my phone from last week's trip to Seattle. Enjoy!















I cannot help but putting my toes in the sand no matter where I roam.



Bye, Bye Seattle!

Eating through Seattle

I am so glad that Seattle is a walking city because I certainly needed to walk after the intake of many calories from the great selection of eats. And with the wonderful temperatures of Seattle, walking is a joy.

Shopping Seattle {Watson Kennedy}

I have been following the daily blog, Ted Kennedy Watson, for a while, so last year during my first visit to Seattle I made a bee line to his two shops. I was not disappointed. Both shops are filled with fine selections of found goods, natural curiosities, accessories, and culinary delights.






The shop is filled with lovely vignettes neatly organized in colors of green, orange, red, yellow, and blue. 

Though I did not see Ted this year (here's a photo from last July), his employee John was as helpful and friendly as could be. I look forward to receiving my purchases as I know they are always handled with care.



Here are some of my favorite things:


















You must make your way over to Watson Kennedy when you visit Seattle. My favorite location is on First Avenue. The other location is located at the Inn at the Market on Pine Street.

Watson Kennedy is a feast for the senses.

In my honest opinion: I guess my only disappointment was that I probably could have used the same blog post from last year as both stores looked similarly appointed. I like when stock is moved and vignettes reworked as it just seems refreshed, and the offerings appear "new".

Watson Kennedy, y'all!
