Although this could very well be a picture of me finding a new treasure at a favorite nursery, it's actually an illustration by David Catrow for a children's book called Plantzilla.

Bedrock, One Last Visit at Their Current Location

Bedrock Industries is moving and will be out of their current location by the end of the month. Fortunately, they're just moving across the street to this building.


There's always something new at Bedrock to get those creative juices flowing!  Even they never know what will be coming in the door next! See previous posts here and their website here.  

Lots of fun holiday glassware!



I do love the Grinch!


Bedrock also gets lots of mistakes from Glass Eye Studio which are sometimes melted down but can also be purchased as is.  These look great in potted plants!


The snowflakes spoke to me.

Here's a little ditty from a show called "Voices of Christmas" that the Group Theater in Seattle used to present at this time of year.  I don't know who wrote the words or if I remember them correctly.


To the tune of White Christmas-

I'm dreaming of a multicultural festive celebration
Just like the ones we're getting used to. 

Where the geographically appropriate vegetation glistens
And chronologically challenged people listen 
To hear or have signed for them


Culturally appropriate rhythm instruments
In the seasonally appropriate precipitation.


I'm dreaming of a multicultural festive celebration ,
With every 100% post consumer recycled materials card I write.

May your days be merry and diverse.

 And may all your celebrations be inclusive.

Hope you have a happy Christmas Eve!

  1. What a fun place to visit!

    I like what the snowflakes said to you. Last year end of January we had Precipitation here that NOAA calls 'Acretion' which is just frozen bits attracting more liquid and freezing all together before they hit the ground. That was as close to seasonally appropriate precipitation as I'd seen since leaving Atlanta 20 years ago. Really, I can live forever without snow or sleet.

    The snowflackes ARE intriguing; the song amusing :)

    1. Their current building sold so they lost their lease. New space is a bit smaller but I'm sure it'll be great!

    1. I agree. We have a bit of a similar climate to yours with gray and wet winters and sparkle is always welcome at this time of year. Hope your Christmas is magical!
