Tales of the Traveling Tote: Where In the World is??? 2.1.19


I am so excited to be included as part of the group of talented, fun, and kind bloggers known as Tales of the Traveling Tote. Today is the second time that I am participating with these lovely ladies. For this episode we were asked as always to take our trusty totes with us on one of our adventures, be it near or far.  This time, we were also challenged to take along an additional piece or so of the treasures  created by MacKenzie-Childs and include it as a part of our post.

 My tote, Carrie Ann Hall was insistent that I catch a shot of her with her little sister, Patches, another MacKenzie-Childs creation. I thought that this was the perfect spot to introduce Carrie Ann's contents...

We're in the entry way, and I'm placing my bet that many of you can pinpoint the artist who created the fountain centerpiece. I thought it was the perfect spot for a champagne picnic to sip while pondering our location. Let's look up...

...and up...

...and up some more! Have you made your guess, yet?

Today I didn't have to travel very far to reach one of the treasures of this little city out here on the prairie. The Oklahoma City Museum of Art is always a pleasure to visit. One of the permanent collections, pleasing to so many, is a selection of the works by Dale Chihuly.

Next we travel upstairs to spend some time enjoying the Chihuly exhibit and capturing pictures for your viewing pleasure. I will refrain from commenting and allow you to form your own opinions. Here we go...





 Hopefully, these images will bring some light, whimsy, and definitely a shot of color to the grayest of winter days. If you've never viewed one of Chihuly's installations, I encourage you to seek one out the next time you visit a city where his work is on display. I think that you'll enjoy the time spent. Maybe your travels will even carry you to Oklahoma City!  Now, I'm going to go visit the rest of the Where In the World Is??? blog posts that have been published by the ladies who bring you The Tales of the Traveling Totes. I want to see how many of their destinations I can identify!
