A Couple More Pictures

I have to confess that I still haven’t touched any fabric or my sewing machine all week. I don’t even have any UFOs hanging over my head; just one unfinished purse I started to design before vacation.

I have been so busy at work this week, and so tired when I get home. I took a two-hour nap after dinner last night, and then it was time to get ready for bed. I hope I didn’t catch a bug from some unknown sick person.

Would you mind if I showed you a couple more pictures from our trip to Vegas? I really love these so I wanted to share them.

These statues are from the side of the building at the Paris casino.

Maybe if you have been to Paris and seen these statues in person, you’re not impressed. But I love them! They are beautiful, and such a contrast to the rest of the glitz and glam of Vegas. They remind me of all the ornate architecture and sculptures we see on our visits to New York City.

I just love these old neon signs in the Glitter Gultch of Vegas.

We didn’t have enough time to see more, which I hope we can do on the next trip.

We walked down Fremont Street in the direction away from the old strip, where more of the old neon signs are on display.

I heard that the city of Las Vegas is finally doing something with the Neon boneyard, an empty lot where all these old neon signs have been sitting over the years, with the creation of a Neon Museum where those treasures will be on display.

For now, you have to pay and get special permission to get into the locked area they are stored.

Last but certainly not least, I love this picture of Dave from our hike in Red Rock Canyon.

He always freezes when someone points a camera at him, so he doesn’t usually have such a natural look on his face in pictures.

Thanks for indulging me!

  1. It was fun to see these pictures…I remember all of these in their original spots…the benefits of childhood in Las Vegas. And really…you don’t have any UFO’s…that’s so terrific!

  2. Could I send you one of my UFO’s to finish? LOL
    Looks like you had a wonderful time in Las Vegas. We’ve spent quite a lot of time there too, we parked our RV in our friends back yard when we traveled through. We so enjoyed the sites, walking and the buffets. Love those old neon signs as well.

  3. Great pics. Yes I’ve been there but years ago. Maybe this weekend you will feel the need to sew. After a get a way you alwas need a few days to rest up. Vacations make you tired. Thankgod tomorrow is Frieday.

  4. Your pictures from your trip have been great. The variety in Las Vegas looks amazing. It is funny how you go from ornate to neon to nature!

  5. I was expecting to see more finished UFO’s sometime soon! You really keep your projects finished! I love the pictures, you can get so many different ones in Vegas! It’s like the world all rolled up in one place. Love the kitchy (sp?) signs. Take care, I hope you are feeling better soon! And yes, take Airborne, or Emergen-C!
