Stained Glass Atrium

Welcome to the weekend! After a really busy couple of weeks, I'm looking forward to a relaxing weekend. It will be the last of the year since holiday festivities begin afterward. Anyhow, TGIF! So I'll end the week as it began, in a room within the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  This particular exhibit was filled with hand-crafted jewelry, some dating back more than 2 centuries. But as in the previous post, I was drawn to architectural elements. It seemed fitting though that a room full of jewelry would be topped off with Tiffany-style stained glass. Reminds me of a huge lamp shade. In any case, the room is really beautiful.

In the adjourning room (background) there is a treasure trove of hand-painted plates and dishes. Some date back to the 16th century. Another post for another day.

Before closing out for the week I'd like to thank you for your feedback, and support. It is truly appreciated and means so much to me.

Have a great weekend everyone!
