The Leopold

The Leopold  was our final museum. I met new painters I had never heard of and that art (like beauty) truly is in the eye of the beholder. I learned to appreciate the time spent and effort exerted of all the creatives whose works were on display. I learned that it really is ok to… Continue reading The Leopold


The Annex and More Klimt

**My apologies for double posting some of these photos. I should have looked at the previous one first! Boy, is my face red!!! Still museum hopping in Vienna… We came upon this small, unassuming building (which later we learned was called the Secession) with a sign at the front directing us inside to view Klimt’s… Continue reading The Annex and More Klimt


Klimt – Vienna

Continuing my summer travels, no trip to Vienna should be without visiting at least one art exhibit. And there are SO many to choose from. So many, in fact that I just couldn’t decide which one to see first! I had it in my head that I would be determined to see as much Klimt… Continue reading Klimt – Vienna

Kunsthistoriches Museum

Not being a big opera fan, I opted for a bit of museum hopping. Luckily, our oldest daughter is also interested. So, armed with museum apps and Google maps, we headed of on our museum adventure! We started with one of the big one that houses a variety of exhibits. I am a BIG fan… Continue reading Kunsthistoriches Museum

Also on the same route to the train station, I spotted these beautiful wildflowers. But they may have been intentionally planted.… Continue reading Vienna – July 2016

I’m Back!

I had quite a busy summer and plan on sharing what “I Did On My Summer Vacation.” Remember the read-to-the-class introductions we had to do write for grade school? Well,… Continue reading I’m Back!


DIY Necklace Storage

If you’ve read my previous post,  you’ll know that I’m in the process of reorganizing my closet space especially all of my jewelry.I say in-the-process because it’s always ongoing, changing, and possibly moving things around so it works better. I have so many necklaces I don’t wear mostly because I forget that I have them… Continue reading DIY Necklace Storage


Crazy for Altering Stuff!

So I’ve been in the process of re-organizing my closet/dressing space and downsizing as much as possible. I have accumulated just too much “stuff.” Besides, getting rid of old stuff makes it much easier to bring home new stuff, right? I’ve had these handy little mini chests of drawers and it’s perfect for storing my… Continue reading Crazy for Altering Stuff!
