Have you met the Met?

Last week was spring break and for once my husband and I were off at the same time!  Since we live in this wonderful city but don’t get out to see it much we took the opportunity to do some site seeing!

I give you the Met!

This is a must see, world class museum in the heart of the city.  If you haven’t been, make the time, its so worth it!  We haven’t been in 6 years, and we were due!
Here are some highlights!

They cut the glass and copper with special tools, then lay it out and weld it while it’s shaped on a wooden base!  Brilliant!

Unbelievable, right?!

And let’s not forget the paintings!  I saw this one and fell in love, there’s something about her…but I didn’t take down the info, no artist or title!  If anyone can tell me anything about this painting I will give you a prize, I swear!
