Olympic Soda Rings

We had a whirlwind trip to Pennsylvania to visit my Dad this weekend.  It was great to see him back in his own apartment.  We went to the store to get a few things for Dad and I saw this Olympic display of various types of Coke products.  Of course, I had to snap a few photos!

The Olympics start on Friday and it will be a good diversion in our house.  Our son, daughter-in-law and Jelly the cat leave for San Francisco on Wednesday so it will be very quiet here!

The Olympic rings are made from various Coke products that come in cases that are predominantly red, green, black, yellow and blue (the blue is a bit pale but it works to convey the idea).  I wonder if lots of stores around the countries have a display like this?  Is it something the local store manager decided to create or did someone in the company offices figure out how to build the display and send directions for the stores to put it together?  There are a lot of cases in the display - how long will they keep them set up before selling them?

It's fun to find "crafty" projects in unexpected places.  This is pixel art with very large pixels!  Have you seen anything like this display at your local stores?  I did a quick search and found some other variations in photos online.

Here are a couple of family photos from this weekend...

Grandpa and Grandsons
Our new great-niece, just three months old!

We have one more big family get together planned for Tuesday and then I'll be getting back to a more regular schedule and sharing some new projects.

  1. Hi Diane, love your photos and that little cutie with your hubby. Have fun at your family gathering.

  2. I think the drink designs probably come from the product's designers. We do have many of our grocery stores that do this.
    Your grand-niece is is precious and those eyes are a perfect match for her little dress.

  3. I'm so glad your Dad is doing better and than his grandsons got to visit. That baby is just adorable.

  4. We have the same sort of display at our grocery stores here in Ottawa, Canada as well.

  5. Thanks for sharing your family photos, Diane. I love to see people's pictures of their families. And of course, you have an eye for composition, and take really nice photos.

    Glad to hear that your dad is doing better, and is back in his own apartment now.

    I know it will be some adjustment to have your son and daughter-in-law (and Jelly!)gone from your house, after the joy of having them around. But like you said, you'll have the Olympics to look forward to!

  6. We have the same type of display in our Walmart here in Oregon. I wondered also if it was just my local stores that did that (they do several different ones) or if they all did. Glad to know the big mystery is answered for me! :)

  7. Diane
    Wonderful pics of your gorgeous family. That baby is an absolute gem.

  8. Fabulous family photos! So happy your were able to take them and share!
