Let's do the time warp again



 The Grace Museum, Abilene, TX. This place a lot of fun. The first floor had very vibrant paintings of wildlife and mahogany sculptures of twisted animals. The second floor were amazing impressionist paintings and pastels. All Texas artists of course. :) The third floor was my favorite. They had a science center for kids but James and I still poked around and had some fun.

Reading Where the Wild Things Are. 


We nearly missed this deserted room at the other end of the floor and it was very very cool. Oh how I love nostalgia. They had rooms decorated as different decades. And this whole wall filled with old cameras, televisions, record players and "Tools for Modern Living"


 I loved that stove!


 They had an old typewriter from the 70s set up for patron's typing pleasure. This is what someone left behind.








 I loved that typewriter. I wrote my mother a letter telling her about our day and a little note your my lovely readers. :)

  5. Great pictures as always! I love museums and looking back through history at all the different styles of the decades gone. I was actually speaking with my mum a few nights ago when we were watching 'The Woman In Black' and I said how in the olden days, it was very sweet that the average person who didn't have much money would treasure little items - such as a hand-mirror or a little trinket - and keep them in a special place in their home. We have so much consumerism nowadays, that we miss the beauty and appreciation of craft. And now it's only those who have an eye for style - such as me and yourself - that can still see the beauty in regular things (i.e what's in your pictures). A bit random, I know, but it is a thought.

  6. This looks like such an interesting place! The museum seems so nostalgic with its antiquated relics from the past. :) I'm a doctor so of course I adore that human anatomy model too! You've captured these images so beautifully - so perfect in its vintage tones. :)

    Haha, I love that we have the same name! You must be an amazing person. ;)

    Thank you for your sweet comment! I adore your blog and am following you now! <3

    Hope you will come and pop by soon!
