For many people in Arizona the northern part of the state becomes a refuge from the summer heat. When the temperatures soar to 110 degrees in the desert, the temp in northern Arizona is usually about twenty degrees cooler. I have always wanted a place of my own in the mountains of Arizona, and, FINALLY, it happened. In November of last year my husband and I purchased what I now lovingly refer to as my little cabin in the woods.
There have long been stereotypes about people who use flower, including the vision of the typical “stoner” who’s lazy and in constant need of feeding the munchies with junk food. Thank goodness these ideas are fading (I hope). In fact, many people that use flower care a lot about the health of their body (and mind) and function at a very high level in society. But even the best of us sometimes find it hard to manage healthy eating when we’re rushed to get everything accomplished during a typical busy week.
One of today’s hottest design trends is colored glass. One of my favorite things is hand-blown glass, which is also usually colored. If you ever have the chance to visit the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum in Seattle (next to the Space Needle) or one of his traveling exhibits (like at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, AZ) I highly recommend you go. Dale Chihuly’s vision and execution of blown and colored glass is truly exceptional, and absolutely beautiful to behold.
