Sequins at the Circus!

Back in May, Will and I went to the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, FL. I had to work and so we went early to hit the Ringling – I had been there when I was about 8 but remembered almost nothing from that trip. We did not manage to get very far in the museum before it was closing (Will went back while I was working and was able to see the whole thing), but we did manage to explore the miniatures display (which is astounding) and look at all of the vintage circus costumes and props. It was incredibly fun, but I was super excited when we got to a room full of sequins! Lots of gorgeous costumes, absolutely covered in sparkles. I couldn’t get enough.

Here are some of the photos!



The entire set of photos is available to view here on Flickr. Lots more sequins there, as well as some full-sized photos of these costumes.

Instagram Roundup #2

Sarcosuchus! It's a replica but that's ok.Saw a Sarcosuchus skull at the NY Mineral, Fossil & Gem Show. I am slightly obsessed with this prehistoric crocodile, so it was a big deal.

Amethyst. Found a cathedral geode for the bargain price of 3500 bucks!Also checked out many cathedral geodes. They are out of my budget for now, but one day I will have one.

My ability to get hella close to the ATM without hitting it are rockin.No one on Twitter or Instagram seemed to appreciate my mad ATM driving skills. I am hella close to the machine but did not hit it. Hence my excited hand gesture.

I like Will's new smirky picture face.Here is Will and I on the way to Florida. He used to look mad in photos but has now implemented smirky picture face.

Miniatures at the Ringling Museum.At the Ringling Museum, in the circus miniatures section. It was spectacular. More on the Ringling soon.

The Ringling Museum is giving me a lot of McQueen exhibit realness. Or the opposite?There was a circus costume display that I could not get enough of. It immediately made me feel like I was back in the McQueen exhibiti at the Met.

Publix YES.We went to Publix while in Florida too. It’s a must when I am there, I miss that store.

Awesome.Beautiful car sighting.

Mom's Tattoos.Went and got my first tattoo at Mom’s Tattoos in Dunedin, FL. More on that later too.

Here comes the rematch.Played no less than 7 rounds of Sequence while in Florida. It’s a tradition, and a game I really like. I wish I played it more often.

I'm feeding a giraffe!We went to the Lowry Park Zoo on Friday. It was unbearably hot, but I FED A GIRAFFE which was amazing. His name was Randall, and I want him to move into my backyard.

Wacky skies.The weather here has been weird since we got back. I keep taking pictures of dark stormy skies.
