It's time once again for Tales of the Traveling Totes #18, and I am elated to be your hostess for our giveaway this week. It's really easy to enter the giveaway. All you need to do is leave me a comment, and you'll automatically be entered to win! I'll accept entries for several weeks, and then I'll draw and announce the name of our winner.
It was a typical blistering hot early September day out here on the prairie. Patches and I prepared the Courtly Check champagne bucket at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, and this time we're welcoming guests.
Cathy, Denna Fo, Sheila, and yours truly gathered at the Museum Cafe to celebrate Denna Fo's birthday. We needed to decide whether we were going to check out the current exhibit at the Museum of Art, or go shopping. Lucky for us, The visiting collection was Isabelle Borchgrave's "Fashioning Art From Paper". Wait until you see what we found!
Note: This a photo intensive post. Go quickly or go slowly and read the descriptions provided for many of the sculptures; I think you'll enjoy it immensely either way. The fashions are spectacular, and REMEMBER; Every bit of every item is made of PAPER! Also, where you see a patterned 'fabric', the pattern has been painted onto the paper. One fun fact: The laces and other complex textured 'fabrics' are created from what is called 'gauze paper'. This is one of my favorite exhibits that I've ever explored. I have my personal favorites picked out; I want to know which ones are your favorites, too. I won't be commenting as we go along because you would be here for several days. Okay, here we go.... Be brave...have a blast!
I'm so glad that you could join me for this majestic and out of this world creative journey! We were able to take a great trip, and it was in air conditioned comfort from start to finish. On a mored sober note, The Tales of the Traveling Tote blogging group covet your thoughts and prayers for our fellow toter RJ @ Sketchy Reader as she is away caring for a family member. There is incredible power in the united prayers of women and mothers. Thank you for taking time this week to lift RJ and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
All you have to do to be entered to win these precious MacKenzie-Childs bunny candles is leave me a comment. Then pirouette over to the other posts and check out the adventures from the other talented, fun, and creative members of Tales of the Traveling Tote. You be glad you made the journey!
