  18. Great pictures! It must be really nice to be close enough to visit the Mertopolitan Museum. Congrats on your SITS day!

  19. Just gorgeous! Sometimes I ponder at the fact that back then they were able to create such beautiful things and today we supposedly have so much more capability but I don't know that we create anything as beautiful or as lasting.

  23. I've only been once for a few hours, but it was great. Have you ever read the book "The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil Frank..."Somebody - I can't remember the whole title. It's about some kids who run away and live for a week in the Met! Fun story. Congrats on your SITS day!

  24. Congrats on being the SITS FB of the day! I absolutely LOVE The Met. I try to get there at least once a year. Each time I visit a different gallery. Your post made me long to go again...soon! Too bad I live 4 hours away.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh, I want to go! We tried to take our twins to an art museum last year (at 2 and a half years old). Turned out that was a bad, bad idea :) We'll try again soon...

    ReplyDelete
  26. I really hope to visit there one day!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Did you take all of those pics? Lovely! I would love to go there some day. The Columbus mueseum(where I am from) doesn't hold as many treasures!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow! That is incredible... I'd love to visit there someday! that crazy necklace is AWESOME :) And I love the painting of the guy with all the different thingies hanging from it, too. lol... Not very technical wording, but you get my drift!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Your post makes me want to stop everything and run to an art museum! Very nice. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love the Met! I work for Smithsonian so I'm a bit of a museum nerd. You should check out my cupcake entry on the This, That blog.

  31. I want that necklace! I would love to see it in person!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I've got goose-bumples and i'm giddy from this post of pics....I'm so into this...it's on my list of things to do before i'm 40.... just amazing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I've not had the chance to visit that museum. I love the eclectic nature of the pieces you posted. Amazing and beautiful pieces of artwork!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love the Met. There's so much to see and take in. I wonder if it's possible to see everything it has to offer? I wonder how long that would take. I've visited a few times and I've only seen a fraction of it.

  38. I don't know how I missed this post of yours the first time around Tammy. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous, for lack of a better, more original adjective.

    I was so psyched to see you as the SITS featured blog today! Congrats!

  40. This pictures are great. I love going to the art museum in my town.

  41. The Metropolitan, is seriously, my FAVORITE place on earth. Nowhere else do I feel so peaceful. And my favorite movie is "The Thomas Crown Affair" because it takes place there...(the remake, with Pierce Brosnan). GREAT movie showcasing this lovely museum.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing your pictures, I would love to visit there someday.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I wish I could take my kids there. We love stuff like that. Just nothing grand in our neck of the woods. Thanks for sharing with those of us who don't get the opportunity to visit.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Now I want to go to an art museum! Luckily the Cleveland art museum is pretty good. Great pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I always thought that if I lived in New York,it would have to right across the street. There is so much to see there, it would take years to get through it and then you would have to go back and see your favorites.

  53. I love museums. Alas...we live so far from any since moving away from the San Francisco area.

    Thanks for the beautiful photos.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow, beautiful! I wish there were more museums near where I live. I think it is probably a good thing, because I would spend all of my money at the museums. I love learning, and I love art!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Wow what great pictures! I wish I could do more museums...but having a 4 year old in tow isn't easy!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Those were great pictures...and I'm sure the pictures didnt even do it justice.

  57. Seeing this just makes me miss my hometown of Chicago even more. I grew up going to all the wonderful museums they have there, too.

    Never been to MMA, though.

    Happy SITS day!
