Occasions & Sale-A-Bration 2017 Swaps #13

Monday arrived and flew by before I knew it.  Our weekend was lots of convoluted getting back into routine at home, connected to kids and their lives, as well as travel fatigue (and I started our taxes Monday morning, eek!).  So I apologize for the delay!

Team Swap Monday is catching up.  I LOVE this card made by Sheryl Edwards!  Her layers are spectacular from the card stock selection to the flowers and glimmer paper. And the embossing is icing on the cake! These die cut flowers are beautiful on the Falling in Love Designer Series paper.





Guess what???  Our retired products list is now available and all of these items are discounted!  Click on each image and it will link you to my online store to see the clearance price, up to 50% off.  These products were featured on Sheryl's card and are all discounted!

Metropolitan Museum of Art

Pardon this diversion.  Many of my friends, creative buddies, family and more have been following my adventures in New York City.  My husband and I are having a lovely time exploring around his work conference.

I was trying to determine how to share these images on Instagram and Facebook, like I have shared everything else.  But I was challenged of how to load the descriptions with the correct masterpiece, and load only 10 images at a time.  I decided that while changing different platforms isn't ideal, it would be easiest to use my blog to share these delightful delights.  

Impressionists are my favorite and I was astounded at how many are owned and on display at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.  

























 Panorama of the lobby.  Astounding detail and investment in craftsmanship.
 Such a grand entryway with a huge fresh display of forsythia.
 There are statues at either end of the lobby.

 On either side of the entryway was matching columns.  There were huge vases filled with more fresh forsythia.

We also saw many statues, armor, and more paintings.  However our brief 2 hours left many, many exhibits unseen.  My favorites are Renoir and Monet.  What is your favorite?
