WHERE IN THE WORLD IS TAMARA?














We're off on another adventure this week, looking for great new ideas to bring to a garden center near you. Yesterday the Big Guy organized tickets to Miami so we can attend the TPIE, a big horticultural trade show for tropical plants.The 4 day show includes garden center tours, greenhouse tours, seminars and lots of booths to check out on the show floor. How exciting!








So here I sit, in the middle of an airport, waiting for my next flight that will take me to Miami. Because we bought our tickets last minute, we have a terrible routing that includes a 6 hour layover. 6 hours!!!! What on earth are we going to do for 6 hours in an airport?! What a dillema..........or NOT! I have decided to make the best of a bad thing. I am going to play a game with my blogger peeps. Here are the rules:










1. I will give you a couple of pictorial clues to WHERE IN THE WORLD IS TAMARA?








2. Once you have figured out which airport I am spending 6 hours of excruciating down time, post your answer in my blog.








3. At the end of my trip, I will take all your CORRECT entries and draw out one name. That person will be the lucky recipient of a small item I have purchased while wandering around this gigantic airport in the middle of nowhere North America, trying to use up my time in some sort of a meaningful manner.








Actually, this MYSTERY airport has a number of nice little shops and I found one in particular that had a lot of beautiful artsy, fartsy things. I chose this colorful acrylic key chain as my gift for the winner (Not exactly as pictured here). I looked this artist uponline and she does some very nice designs.




Now here are your pictorial clues:








CLUE NUMBER 1:




CLUE NUMBER 2:




So, join in my game and guess WHERE IN THE WORLD IS TAMARA?
ADDITIONAL CLUES FOR THE CLUELESS..........
CLUE #3:
CLUE #4:


Game winner to be announce next Thursday :)

Hey Tamara, I was stuck in a Florida airport for 7 hours over Christmas waiting for my son's plane (coming from Chicago) to arrive. I read my decorating magazines and walked the airport for exercise while DH played solitaire. I like your idea of doing your blog while waiting. Unfortunately I don't have a laptop. Are you in Sarasota? Just a wild guess. I hadn't finished my latest blog post when it somehow published so come back if you want for the last photo. And I think putting pinwheels in your spring time plants will make them sell like hot cakes. If you use the idea you have to give me royalties..lol...just kiddin'. Have fun in the airport. xo Lynn

Colorado!!! the avalanche are from Colorado!!!!

I knew you weren't in Alberta even tho there was snow on the ground...our airports are not that nice! lol
have fun...enjoy the sunshine!

Tootsie said...

DENVER COLORADO! forgot the city!

Chandra said...

I KNOW! I KNOW! And I figured it out with only the first two clues...do I get extra entries for being the first?? :o) Good thing Pete's gone snow clearing (again), the kids are watching a video, and I'm just killing time on the computer. (Oh, and BTW, it took me about 40 minutes to figure out where, you are!) But if I write it down, other people will Google it and figure it out, so that's cheating! So, what code can I use? Let's see, the consonants (in order) are the first letter of Uncle Pete and Aunt Heddy's oldest son, the first letter of my Mom's name, the first letter of my last name, the first letter of your hubby's younger brother's name, and there are two vowels, both the same. Did you get that?! :o)

Chandra said...

No fair, Tootsie posted while I was busy working out my code!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

You are in Denver...I was there many moons ago...40 years! I don't remember it looking like this!

I'm looking forward to a fabulous trip report.

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

LOL...Good grief...What a dummy I am. For some reason I had it stuck in my mind that you were in a layover in Florida not that you were heading to Florida (lucky!). My guess is the same as Tooties...Denver. DIA

Rosa said...

LOL Chandra! :)
John Denver did it for me. . .
Colorado Rocky Mountain High and all that!

Chandra said...

Aw man, you totally took the challenge out of it with the 3rd and 4th clues!! No fair for us truly dedicated (okay, obsessive-compulsive) folks who did it the hard way!!

I am amazed that the Denver airport looks like that-- a bunch of Christmas balls strung together. It has been a long time since I was there, and I was not stuck at the airport, but in traffic on the way to the airport. I have always found that time goes buy pretty fast in airports, what with going to the snack bar repeatedly. Have a great trip!
xxxooo

LOL Chandra ...

My kids tell me that's a Colorado Avalanche jersey so my guess is Denver Colorado!

YAY KIDS!!!

Have a great time away Tam - I hear it's going to get cold here again. (that's only a problem for you with the 0% body fat!)

I love Chandra! I have a very good friend who shares her name...your Chandra is silly too!!! I had it...and then when I saw one of the million hockey jerseys I am forced to wash each week...(lol) I knew it for sure! that and John Denver...good one! lol
hope you are warm...it is storming like a maniac here...three inches of snow in the last hour...hope you aren't getting any...
pretty sure the neighbors are wondering why I am out there with a broom tied to a spare hockey stick...sweeping the roof of my greenhouse! stupid wet heavy snow!

dowhatyoulove said...

Miami! I want to come! Wow, that is quite the layover to entertain yourself. How cute the game you came up with. I would write the answer, but it wouldnt be fair because I really had no idea, and would just be copying everyone else on here. :( Hope you had a decent time in Denver's airport.

Anonymous said...

Aaaaw, Timmy! Why did you erase your comment?! I put that Jersey in there JUST FOR YOU! Sniff, sniff.

Colleen said...

Oh boy.... KERMIT! It's been awhile since I've seen him!
But yeah, don't recognize the airport - haven't been there - yet.
But forsure the jersey makes that pretty easy - Denver Colorado. Have a nice warm trip!

antigoni said...

I was looking for the soap opera "Dynasty" in Google and suddenly i saw a photo like yours from the airport. And the clue with John Denver....
So it's the Denver International Airport.

once in a blue moon... said...

you are a crack up, giving out prizes when you are stuck in denver is rather entertaining!

marina said...

It's the Denver International Airport. But, since my sis informed me about the enigma and helped me a lot...with the answer I can't participate to the game! Furthermore she threatened me -LOL- not to dare take part in it because I won at your last game!
