But it really made you SEE... You related to the pure innocence of shoes and what a huge impact they have when you know what they represent... The death of millions of innocent people.
Most of the "everyday" items are what really hit home to me... They had piles of rusty sewing scissors, hairbrushes, and toothbrushes. I put myself in that situation... If I had to leave and not know how long I would be gone I would bring my sewing scissors (for crafting of course!)... It actually broke my heart. I guess that is the best word for it. To say the least... That museum was AMAZING.... Everything about it was done just right. The time and effort put into that museum really showed. I would say that should be on your top 5 things to do in DC if you go.
I also went to the Smithsonian Museums. The Air and Space was pretty cool... Not my favorite since I can really care less about all things space related... I felt like I was in a Star wars museum.... I took some fun pics anyways.
My mom thought this space suit had a real guy in it.... aye... What did she think? We were at Disneyland? Geeze! Shes like " Juan was hugging that guy?" AHAHAHAHAH OH MY MOTHER!!! The sad part is, I'm slowly turning into her. That's another post though...
My favorite Smithsonian was the Museum of Natural History. It was sssooo cool. I've never been to a museum with dinosaurs in it! I always read about this museum in books and I was so glad to actually go to it!
Look how little I look next to this thing!! I was doing my best impression of T-Rex... Children were scared!
Here is Juan with the moose... I should have made him pull up his pants so he would be next to the Moose with a "mooseknuckle" HAHAHAHA... If you don't know what that is... Well maybe that's just for the best...
Here I am with a big grizzly bear... How ironic that Juans image is inside the grizzly... Since he is a huge Papa Bear himself...
They also had a bunch of other animals. I've decided that I would love to have a Mole as a pet... They are so ugly I just love them!
My favorite room was the "GEMS and JEWELS" It was sssoooo beautiful! My favorite was Marie Antoinettes earrings. It was said they she was wearing them when she was arrested before she got the axe!
They are GIANT!!! I would DIE for a pair of these!!! I was sort of mad they didn't say how much all of the artifacts were worth... They said they were "priceless" but hello... I need a number... $$$CHA CHING$$$ There was a bunch of cool stuff in there. like this:
The French Emperor Napoleon I (1769-1821) gave this piece of jewelry to his second wife, Empress Marie Louise. The diadem was a wedding present in 1810. Made by the French jewelers Nitôt et Fils. Marie Louise, who was Austrian-born, bequeathed the two pieces to the royal family of Austria.
Isn't it beautiful? I don't think I would mind being a Queen... Especially back in the day... I would be perfect I like bossing people around, I'm fair (nice word for ALBINO), chubby, love big expensive gaudy things... Wasn't that the requirements for Queens back in the day? The bigger the better??? hahahahaha
Since this is a craft blog I need to blog about my crafts I have been doing... I have one more non craft related post... About my experience skiing in Big Bear... It was wonderful until I made me and all my peeps fall off the lift... Good times!
