A Taste of Vancouver - Table/Chairs Series

Well since yesterday was my 300th Post,  my thoughtful producer/manager Wayne,  (Meandering in Lotus Land),  gave me the day off!  How generous to send me this photograph to add to my Table/Chairs Series.  This is the Liberty Bakery off Main Street in Vancouver, BC.  I love the color of that wall and those vintage chairs paired with that neat tiled table.  Thanks W., there could be a raise in your future.  You know, I could get use to this.  Anyone else care to donate??

So mismatched and so pretty! I am currently seated at our natural wood kitchen table that belonged to my mother-in-law when she first got married. Chairs match, but aren't of the same era. Maybe I should photograph it, or part of it...?

a place to have a good time

Babzy said...

What a good idea , chairs around the world ;)

As you know - from experience - I like also the idea of exchanging photos and texts between bloggers - especially inviting others, giving you a day "off"! I guess you have the right after 300, but it's only a "step"! Already your Paris-to-do-list should add a few hundred more:-)

Oh, I'm SOOOOO sending you something...

alice said...

A nice little place to share teatime with you! About your series, I'm going to see what could be interesting for you...
(thank you for your words today!)

Peter,
I learned the fine art of a "day off" from you my friend. I would say you owe me several - ha The list goes on.........!

Laurie,
Bring it on. I need some days off to get ready for Paris!

Alice,
As I said I'm but a baby compared to your 800posts. That's a lot of fabulous photos!

Bergson,
I agree! Wish I were sitting there looking at the beautiful scenery one experiences in Vancouver.

Babzy and Bibi=
Join me in chairs/tables around the world on your blogs.

'Tis a very nice photo...reminds me of our local bagel shop...though there the chairs are metal and they match!

Thanks for coming by Cedar Key DP and I hope you have a great day!

Halcyon said...

Happy day off!!! Did I mention that I finally conned, I mean convinced my husband to take me to Birmingham! We're coming the weekend of Memorial Day to play golf and take a look around your city.

You MUST send me the names/addresses of all the lovely cafes and restaurants you're always showcasing. And of course, I'd love to meet up for a coffee or a glass of wine. :)

Congrats on 300th post and heres to 3000 more!

I wouldn't spoil him Virg. Next he'll want dental insurance.

Virginia said...

AH
You're right of course. What was I thinking????

Halcyon,
Well darn, I'll be in Paris then. Maybe you can come back this summer and see me? I'd love meet you and we could have some fun tasting our way all over B'ham. I'll email you my favs.

James, 3000 more? Lord have mercy!

Jacob,
You live in a beautiful place. The gulf coast is the best kept secret in the USA!

Halcyon said...

Wonderful! I have a link to my email on my blog in the links section. It's too bad you won't be there - but I'm sure you'll be having fun in the city of lights.

PS: I'll see if I can scrounge up a table and chairs pic for you. I have a few, I just don't label them as such.

Wayne took this? Your manager has outdone himself with this one. A gold star and a pass for a free day off to him. Freebies. I'll make you a deal. What about a Rivera image? See what images photographers take as holiday snaps.

amatamari said...

The thing I like most is the shadow on the wall which recalls the lines liberty of the chairs...

Beautiful image and colors!!!

Wayne said...

It's the big tease. The old 'could be a raise in your future' line is always dangling there just out of reach.

I consider myself fortunate that V. didn't charge me for posting it.

Virginia said...

I swear, employees these days are so ungrateful even when their jobs are on the line!!!

B,
At the risk of giving him the big head, I kinda liked his photo too. Hey, I don't let no "riff raff" on this blog!!!

altadenahiker said...

I guess I'm just riff with no raff, and that's why I'm tolerated. Maybe I can put together a table and chairs, but beware.

Virginia said...

AH,
Let me have it.

W,
Big tease? Surely you jest!

Thérèse said...

Great Virginia!
Tomorrow will be my "Chandler chair sharing day."
