Matched my mood, oh so blue.
I couldn't stay home.
Didn't have it in me to be in the house all day long.
Grabbed my i-pod loaded with new music from DD.
(Pink, Shakira, Burlesque sound trac, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Bruno Marz, Glee)
Grabbed DS's camera + started out of the house.
Drove thru rain, sleet, snow flurries.
Ended up in Indianapolis, IN (yeah, I know!)
Toured Madeleine Albright: Read My Pins exhibit.
Guess what? The book photos don't do the pins justice.
They are mounted + have tons of information.
I was touched viewing the Katrina Pin
which I heard about in a cbs interview.
And, Andy Warhol Enterprises exhibit was fun!
Loved the wall of portraits - from Interview covers.
Even had a Michael Jackson.
Swung by a couple of my fav paintings,
bought a Marilyn Monroe pin (how could I not?)
+ headed home, spirits soaring.
Stopped at Lafayette Lacer's Exhibit in Lafayette.
I enjoyed it today as much as I did
when with GFs (on our road trip).
The tatted ornaments on the tree are fabulous.
Oh, if only I had that much talent - will keep practicing!
plan to finish reading Madeleine Albright's book.
It was interesting reading, but now that I've actually seen the pins,
the book is even better.
The Swan Thieves.
Some gave iffy reviews, I enjoyed it.
It was a complicated love story.
Real love, with real issues and complications.
I enjoyed the characters, the inspirations, the artisist in all of us can celebrate.
