I didn’t grow up in Cleveland.  I attended Case Western Reserve University (Case) for my undergraduate degree and decided after graduation that I’d stick around; I’ve now lived here longer than anywhere else, boggles my mind!  Case is an urban campus settled among some of the cultural powerhouses of the city including Severance Hall and the Cleveland Museum of Art, both are amazing institutions that I attempt to visit regularly.  I happen to also live very close to these very spots and I can tell you I must have driven by this unassuming sculptural garden a million times; ok, maybe not a million, but a lot!  The garden is just a sliver of green space smack between two very busy thoroughfares and is nestled behind Case and near the Children’s Museum.  I can say I have never seen anyone walk, sit or play in this area, and I don’t blame them because parking and traffic can be slightly overwhelming.  Ready for an adventure I selected this location hoping it would offer some artistic interest, and I wasn’t disappointed.  I had every intention of taking pictures with each sculpture, but the one in the images above offered so much fun and interest there was no need to explore the others, those I would save for another shoot.

Here’s hoping you’ve found some unexpected settings and adventures of your own this summer.  I’d love to hear of any locations you’ve found tucked away and had time to explore and enjoy!

Thank you for stopping by, cheers!

I just can’t get enough of a good patio during the summer!  A great little spot in Cleveland filled with cozy patios is a little street off of W. 25th called Market Avenue.  There you’ll find so many scrumptious bites to eat and more than ample options for beverages.  A favorite little patio of mine is Market Avenue Wine Bar.  Friendly staff and an extensive wine list, what more could a girl want?  Ok, maybe another pair of shoes…

Speaking of shoes I love all kinds: strappy, heeled, flats, patterned, sporty…you get the idea.  These shoes always remind me of little tuxedos for my feet.  I can get enough of J.Crew’s #2 pencil skirts and I own more of them than I care to admit but gosh darn-it they fit like a dream.  I’m head over heels right now for girly blouses; out with the men’s inspired button downs and in with the flowy and sheer.  My urban camouflage top was love at first sight and the extra special bonus are the rose gold tone cone shaped buttons that adorn the front, sleeve and epaulets; if you missed the shoulder close-up, take a peek again.

I’m looking forward to this weekend and, fingers crossed, finding at least one patio on which to relax and watch the world go by.  What’s one of your favorite summer activities?  As always, thank you for stopping by and Cheers!!
