Artsy Fodder: Is That a Tiny Mountain On Your Finger or Are You Just Glad to See Me?

20 Apr

Yep, mountains on the brain.  I’m completely in love with this ring by jewelry artist Terhi Tolvanen.

Friday Faves: Climb Every Mountain

20 Apr

A huge part of what drew George & I to the Northwest was the mountainous terrain.  When the weather is good, every weekend is spent hiking and exploring the mountains around wherever we happen to be.  We’re gearing up for the ultimate mountain adventure this June, when we’ll take some time off to camp and explore Glacier National Park, the Tetons and Yellowstone.  So it’s only natural that I’ve got mountains on the brain these days.  Hope you enjoy these artist’s takes on the peak life!
