Museum Snippets

Last week I had a chance for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum Preservation Center at the Carl Sandburg house. Through the fog of a cold there were two things that impressed me – make that three: 1) museum curators get awesome green uniforms 2) sliding metal lockers are very very cool and 3) even the most ordinary things are beautiful when collected and given a little respect.

Mrs. Sandburg’s glasses  (THOUGHT – we have at least 2-3 pairs of ‘heirloom’ glasses in the attic: mama’s baby cat eyes, gmas’ wirerims – we should shadowbox them!)

Ribbons from the dairy goats + notes from craft camp + quote that I must not forget.

(Loving my new Moleskine!)
