Dreams of Sundance

Someday, I will need at least two homes. One, a loft-type condo, preferably in a city, which I can deck out as minimalist & modern as I like. For the other, I want this:
Although this particular little log cabin just sold in Aspen, CO, I can still base my dream around it. Growing up in Wyoming has etched a love of mountain landscapes deep into my soul. I miss, with all my heart, the smell of mountain sagebrush after a brief spring rain. Someday, I want a log cabin nestled into the Laramie Mountains outside my hometown. There I could satisfy the rustic, countryish side of my decorating tastes. I could probably furnish the whole thing from one catalog:
I love getting the Sundance Catalog! It makes my whole day to see beautiful wood furnishings:
That Adirondack Chair was made from reclaimed hardwood, and this stunner of a bed below was made from recycled vinegar barrel wood, which gave the wood its unique pickled look.
Even some of the featured art has the recycling vibe as in this piece by Aaron Foster:
I love these wrought-iron birds called The Songbirds of Paris, Texas. (One of my very favorite movies by the way is Paris, Texas!)
I also loved this pendant lamp with a recycled vibe:
These enameled tin ware dishes would be perfect in my dream cabin:
As would these lovely wine tumblers. They are made using recycled glass (mostly wine bottles) from the Sundance Resort Restaurants. I think they are just beautiful and because they’re recycled, even more so:
To think I haven’t even begun on the jewelry & clothing aspects of the catalog. This company appeals to me for some reason. Maybe it’s because every time I hear Sundance, I think of this:
Have a rip-roaring day y’all!

    David spent some time at the Sundance Resort with his folks and raves about it. I think I heard him say once that it was the most “kind” spot he has ever stayed. (as far as hotels/resorts go).

    Definitely want to check it out myself. I love Utah’s natural beauty, too. (Right up there with Wyoming, no?)

    Gorgeous stuff from the Sundance crew. Thanks, Gwen!

    I don’t get that catalog. Do they have that annoying card that falls out? Send to a friend?
