On the Sunday of Mother’s Day we spent a family day (dearly missing one sister) at the Met. I was expecting crowds, but it was pleasant and easy. We made a conscious decision to just take in just a tiny portion of the museum, and I have to say, it was a brilliant move. Just taking in a bit is always better than leaving exhausted, and we left with enough energy to walk through Central Park afterward. Good day!
While trying to not to lag behind too much, I stopped to look at the little things up close. There is some kind of energy coming off of some of these pieces — I imagine the hand crafters who labored over these pieces, and wonder where they were, and what their studios looked like, and how long it took them, and why they were inspired (or required?) to make them just so.
It’s a bit silly to say, but so much of this seems like it would be commercially popular today. Beautiful, classic designs, and of course with that worn look that hasn’t yet gone out of style. Wouldn’t you want something here in your home?
