Nate,

glad that you got the dead weight off.......hope all goes well in "somewhere nice".....and that you have a great day.........nothing is worse than someone who doesn't want to be a team player and carry the load........

I went to see Artistic Luxury Faberge Tiffany Lalique at The Cleveland Museum of Art: The Cleveland Museum of Art
"Just over 100 years ago, three of the world's greatest designers, Peter Carl Faberge, Louis Comfort Tiffany, and Rene Lalique, engaged in a spirited rivalry that drove each to attain unsurpassed heights in the creation of jewelry and luxury goods"

"In this opulent exhibition, you will see their greated masterworks reunited for the first time since the legendary 1900 World's Fair in Paris provided a glamorous stage for all three designers to shine."
From the brochure

Exhibition highlights:
The Cleveland Museum of Art

My friend and I want to a have a "Tiara Nights" party, now. lol If Andy were living and had gone to the exhibit he would have said that his flabber was gast. That is a good description.

I have been smiling ever since leaving the museum and visiting with John and Debbie over dinner at Judson.

Wow, Susan, that had to have been beautiful.

Last thing that made me smile was skimming the "Same Letter Sentence" thread. Too goofy.

Susan, that is my kind of museum!

My last smile came from DH who told me how beautiful I looked today...in my baggiest comfort clothes and no make-up!

My mom and I talked about the Artistic Luxury Exhibit and she remembered parts of it. She went in October or November so I was pleased that she remembered what she did. That was my smile for today.
