The Three Muses 'Old & New' & Telluride, CO

vintagesusie out & about & having fun in Telluride

The main street of this little western town

My trip to Colorado was a short 4 days, but my sweet sister managed to stuff as much fun as humanly possible into that short time frame! LOL One of our journeys was to Telluride, an awesome old mining town turned resort town high in the Colorado mountains. One of it's claims to fame is that in June 1889, Butch Cassidy before becoming associated with 'the wild bunch', robbed the San Miguel Valley Bank of $24,000...that was a lot of money for back then right?? Now in the same building is The Appaloosa Trading Company & lucky me, Kristen bought me the coolest boots there ever...I love her, I love them & I love that they're from Telluride! More of my journey to come...don't miss my pics of Ouray's Ice Park, beyond amazing...it's insane! Have fun getting ready for the New Year...I'm rolling around the idea of taking Kai to the Rose Bowl Parade, I have to mull that one over for a while! :)

If so, you do amazing work (and if not you have great taste!)... Looking forward to reading your archives:)

i love your old/new collage, especially that crowned ostrich!!

Lorraine said...

like the ostrich and all your photos of the icicles and llamas feel like I am there with youo! happy new year and thanks for your great comment on my blog

Chrisy said...

The background on that piece is just gorgeous. Have enjoyed all your blog pics too...so beautiful over there...

Ozstuff said...

The Australian version of the ostrich is an emu which is almost as big and which lays huge, brilliantly blue coloured eggs. The shell is so tough that some people engrave and embellish them into gorgeous works of art. I love your take on the theme - the old bird and the new hatchling, not to forget the wee baby! Wonderful creativity and artwork.

Happy New Year - and keep taking photos for your blog friends to enjoy. Cheers from Marie aka Ozstuff.
