seattle, wa - part 1

I had a great little visit to seattle, wa last week with two of my sisters - it was my first time there & I really liked it!


we saw a variety of things which I'll be sharing photos of the rest of the week..starting today with museums.

burke museum








I'm including the public library building because it really was a work of art & as interesting to look at from the inside as the outside:



the embossed wood floors in the lobby were so cool:

the nick cave exhibit was so much fun! I love that he finds many of the materials he uses at the thrift store :) sadly photos were prohibited...I did snap this in the elevator though:

I love the Seattle Art Museum. It has to be one of my favorite musuems in the U.S. It's so well curated!
Loving the totem pole photos.

Wow, wow and wow! I had never heard of Nick Cave (well, not this one!) and I had to find out more about those amazing costumes. They look stunning - I wish I lived nearer!
