Ok, so these aren't physically little things but the fact that they are hidden in a little patch of land in a mixed industrial and residential area is a bit nostalgic to me...nostalgia is full of little things that mean something to people. These boots and hat (being refurbished) were originally on Hiway 99 as a gas station and restrooms...yeah you guessed it the blue boot (not the original color) would have been the ladies and the darker boot the mens rooms. These little(big) treasures were almost trashed and sat for a long time in disrepair behind some old chain link fencing until they were rescued by the community. I love them. I hadn't seen them in a long time and wondered what happened...when my friend, Kar, and I took a walk in the area next to a coffee shop we visit for the best latte's in Seattle (another story) we ran across them. What a find. It's amazing what you find on little walks out in the community. Not to mention all the halloween art that was out and about on houses and businesses. This time of year is full of creative explosions all around us. Frankly I like art like this...less abstract, more about real stuff. Seattle is definitely in the West and we do have our share of the cowboy hats and boots along with the maritime themes.
