Happy T day everyone. I am here with my Tuesday post from New Mexico. Its cold, grey and windy today and between tonight and tomorrow we may get 5 inches of snow. At home it is spring like and warm. I guess I am in the wrong place for spring weather. Usually it is winter like at home and more spring like here, but I must admit I am having a fantastic time anyhow and it would be fun to see snow here at my friend's house.
(You can see it on the mountains already though)
So yesterday we went to fantastic museum, the Millicent Rogers Museum in Taos. Millicent was an heiress who collected some fantastic southwestern items and also was a gal who loved jewelry. She even designed some herself. She lived only into her early 50's and died in in 1953.
Here are a few photos from the museum. Lots more to show you in posts to come.
Above is some of her jewelry and here is the sketches for some she designed.
This necklace was huge and looks heavy and the spike pin, it was at least 9 inches long-or more. Not really my personal style but still cool to see.
They also had one of her childhood journals on display.
And here's one from some of her colored pencil sketches for her version of Hans Christian Andersen's story Little Mermaid. She did these for her sons.
And how about some clothing she designed with some southwestern jewelry and buttons. I don't know if this jewelry is her designs or not.
And here is a portrait of her done by artist Dorothy Berg.
I bet if you are like me, after that little tour you are ready for some T.
Stop by Elizabeth's blog-Altered Book Lover to see what people have been sipping (and eating) lately.
Look at these artful mugs my friend has. I have been using the quail mug. I really love those guys.
A little hot coco by the fire.
And maybe a small piece of brownie too-though I didn't take a photo of that.
Thanks for visiting. As I am away I might not get to my computer as regular as usual. so please be patient with me. I will get to everyone's blog to leave comments and to post comments.
Happy end of the month. (Can you believe it is just about March?)
