Beautiful back lighting Ruthie! The color and the detail is magnificent! Absolutely beautiful! How did you like the museum?

23 May 2013 9:49pm

@Elaine Hancock: I loved the museum. It had so many wonderful pieces. I was touched by the large crewel tapestries telling the story of the woman who suffered through Nazi Germany. I also enjoyed the moving toys we could push the buttons for. The screen painting were also delightful. SO glad you shared it with AM3 so I could go enjoy it too.
