About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on Etsy.com, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)

A Day at the Museum

My husband and I spent our day off enjoying the wonderful Detroit Institute of Arts. This place is one of the city's true gems, and we love to visit whenever we can. The DIA is currently featuring a special exhibit of the works of American artist Norman Rockwell. The exhibit runs through May 31, 2009 and I highly recommend that you see it if you can. I was glad to see that the museum was filled with visitors today. Times are tight for many people, so it was great that so many decided to visit the DIA today. I was amused to see this jewelry display of earrings from the Byzantine era. Really, they don't look that much different from the styles you see today!
There are many wonderful paintings in the museum, but this one is my favorite. The title of it is the "Nut Gatherers" and it was painted by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. The little girls in this painting look so real to me. I've just always loved this painting ~ I imagine these are two sisters who are sharing a special secret. Anyone who has a sister can relate to the special bond that sisters share. I think this painting captures that unspoken bond.
Today was also opening day for the Detroit Tigers! Luckily the weather held out for the game. The Tigers beat the Rangers with a 15-2 blowout. All in all, it was a fabulous day in the "D"!!
