Primative Decorating

Image
  I always had a special love for antiques and old worn-out furniture. Whenever I went to an antique store, I was drawn to the wood cabinets, baskets, antique cookware, crocks, and all things that were less than perfect that time has taken its toll on. Basically, organic items that looked like they decorated a home in colonial times. I knew that it was a Scandinavian style that I loved but didn't know it had a particular name. One day I was checking out my recommends on YouTube, and I saw one that was posted by Bridgett's Primitive Passion. The thumbnail on the video showed very old decor and she was doing a house tour. This definitely caught my attention, so I watched it. Oh my, this was definitely my type of decorating. The house looked warm and cozy with all the primitive items throughout the entire house.

The Riparian Water Reserve is one of the places Sharon and I like to go in the spring to take photos. That place never disappoints. This is what we saw on our latest outing.

Yep, I said it. Apparently, the big fella has been spotted there by several witnesses. My friends had rocks thrown at them the last time there we there and saw many areas where grass was pressed down like something big had been lying there. They wanted to go back to see if they experience anything else and I wanted to go with them. The hike was beautiful, but since I am not an avid hiker, it got grueling at times, and my bad knee didn't like it. I really need to get into better shape. Anyhow, we did see several hidden places where some sort of large creature made itself a bed. Was it bigfoot? Who knows, but we sure thought so. I am sure my friends will be back and continue their investigation.

Scottsdale Boardwalk

Along the 101 freeway in Scottsdale, AZ, is a wonderful place to visit. It is loaded with museums, restaurants, and unusual statues. Sharon and I decided to explore this place and visit the UFO Experience and Ripley's Believe it or Not museums. We had a blast like a couple of kiddos. If you are ever in the area, be sure to visit. We plan to go again and check out the butterfly exhibit and Museum of Illusions.
