Far, far away - the return to Oz

Here I am back in beautiful Denver, Colorado for a few days. I assumed the weather would be much colder than ours but I was pleasantly surprised. It is mild (for winter weather) and I may not have to wear my big clunky winter snowshoes...er..boots.

When I checked in to the Curtis Doubletree, this was part of the check in process. Hmmm....wonder what it is?


O.M.G. There is a warm cookie inside the bag! Apparently this is a Doubletree stand! I like this place already!
The hotel is decorated in a pop culture theme. My floor is the chick flick floor, so there are movie posters decorating the hall walls. Here is my room...neat picture of legs and boots over my bed
And this try to life picture in the bathroom. This room is mine, for sure!

Here's a neat poster of shoes at the end of the hall
And this gal outside my door...does anyone know who she is? She is one of my role models...I love her attitude!
Ok, it is time to  wind down for the night and be ready for a big day tomorrow. I'll keep you posted!

  2. Rosie the Riveter is a Favorite icon. I remember seeing old magazines of my grandmother's in our attic. Her can do attitude was infectious.

  4. The gal is "Rosie the Riveter"...she was the face of a can do campaign of sorts in the US back when all the guys were off at war. The women had to go do the factory jobs and other such typically (especially at the time) identified guy jobs. Of late many communities have programs oriented toward young adolescent females that teach them trade sorts of jobs such as plumbing, carpentry, tree trimming, firefighting, police work, etc... It's quite an empowering program here where I live.

    1. I love everything about Rosie! I learned about her in the late 50s...when my dad said I could anything I wanted (except of course - be a horse doctor - that was man's work!)

    1. I SO tried to wear a hair tie like hers when I was a young girl. Somehow I didn't look quite the same!

  7. Welcome to Denver! I hope your stay is a pleasant one. I am tired of wearing bras where the underwire either sticks me in the underarm or protrudes between my breasts, this after paying over $80. Therefore, I will be signing up for your Craftsy bra-makers class and looking forward to having great-fitting, pretty bras to wear.

    1. All righty! You can ask me questions on the Craftsy platform if you have any difficulties!
