Recently, Joe and I took a road trip in the Pacific Northwest. I thought I’d share a couple pictures from the Old Morris Tobacco Shop in Victoria, British Columbia. I really loved the old tile floors, so I had to snap a couple of shots, so that I’d remember them.
Also… the marble light pole in the middle of the room is an antique Italian marble floor lighter. Yes, it still works. They told us it is one of only two in the world.
A great shop… lots of manly inspiration here. Maybe someday, these inspirations will wind up in a project. Who knows?
Their website is Old Morris Tobacconist Ltd
Also, today is the day that I’ll be entering my newest quilt into the Yuma County Fair. It’s a strippy quilt that features a vintage French fabric that Joe purchased for me at a show many years ago. I knew it was destined to become something very special. I followed the quilt project, as it spoke to me and told me what to design next. It really was a labor of love.
I digitized some special quilting motifs for the borders. I think it turned out really well. The quilt just returned from Seattle, where it was displayed at our wedding two weeks ago. I hope you enjoy the pictures,
