Pin It Weekly #228

Happy first Pin It Weekly of 2018!

Playing FootsieOne of my bloggy friends sent a sweet card for the holidays. What a wonderful gesture! Preeti, of SewPreetiQuilts, has been a wonderful friend in other ways, but I want to focus on her card because it's so darling. Thanks sweet Preeti!

And since Preeti is definitely on my mind, I decided to check out her Pinterest site. She has one! Yay! These are from the board that shows her quilts. Aren't they something fantastic?

She has another board of quilts that she is interesting in maybe making one day. Ah, some nice quilts...I need to pin some of those!

And now some of the things I have been pinning. Just this crazy mix-mash (is that really a word?) of things and stuff. No rhyme or reason behind my thinking. Just stuff I like.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Cloisters: St. Guilhem Cloister; View looking from arcade toward west. Photographed on October 5, 1939.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Wing C, Room 24: View of Hall of Architectural Casts. Photographed in March 1925.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art; View of case with fans from the Louis XVI period (1774-1791). Photographed on April 1, 1907.

A view of The Roman Sculpture Court. Photographed in 1926.

Sofa, 1800-1805. Made in New York, New York, United States. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. Gift of the Members of the Committee of the Bertha King Benkard Memorial Fund, 1946 (46.67.90a-d)

The Arms and Armor Galleries photographed in 1907.

The Met

Okay, so it turns out that I was mistaken. Everything after Preeti is from The Met. Every now and again I fall into The Met-hole and find it impossible to get out. I never pin anything because Why? It's already there. Organized by people whose job it is to curate and organize such things. Life is perfect in some corners.
