I have to say, this weekend was a beauty of one.Right before Warbucks was going to take off, he wanted to go to the Philadelphia Museum of Art to feel cultured I believe, what with a week of fine food and eating out and just a few cock-a-tails. I love dinning out...but talk about to many earthly delights! I adore Warbucks, but between his energy, squiring me all over, and the few gift he brought, which I won't mention what they were, can be taxing after a week...but off we went anyway.
So it was off to Philly for the day, and we were also joined by my friend Preston who stayed over night. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is a art museum originally chartered in 1876 for the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. The main museum building was completed in 1928 on Fairmount, a hill located at the northwest end of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway at Eakins Oval. The museum administers collections containing over 240,000 objects including major holdings of European, American and Asian origin. The various classes of artwork include sculpture, paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, armor, and decorative arts. The Philadelphia Museum also administers several annexes including the Rodin Museum, that I also just featured a few weeks ago and is also located on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. It quite a very engaging place and so beautiful. The exterior alone feels majestic and I could take pictures of just the architecture of it.
But don't ever expect me to take pictures of the damn Rocky Statue. I despise that thing!!!! I've made many a prayer to Athena to send a lightening bolt down to take that thing out. I am much more in love with the Statue of Diana in the main rotunda staircase.
My favorite things to see that day..
I was pining over this gorgeous silver epergne .I’ve always wanted one of these - this one is spectacular. May be a bit out of my price range though, and where would I place it in my bungalow?
Two majestic works by renowned artist Ursula von Rydingsvard in the Museum’s Sculpture Garden. First constructed in cedar and then cast in bronze and urethane resin. This is one of two of them, and they were gigantic, but very cool.
Preston sent me a picture he took with a drone the next day, since we all stayed in Philly. Don't get me started on them either. I could have killed him playing with that thing while we were outside on the grounds, but since he is hot and ripped, I forgave him. But had I been the Dowager Countess, he'd got hit with my cane. But I must admit the picture is pretty cool looking, seeing toward the Schuylkill River.
The other place we visited, I'll share later for Deedles, but of course after that art viewing... as with any visit with me...
Daddy Warbucks has finally left after a 11 day visit to return to his place in Denver, then head back to main residence in Connecticut. Between working, packing overnight bag here and there, and running between the Casa du Borghese and the Raven, not to mention late nights....the Mistress needs a good lounge and rest.
For him being 61 and not needing Viagra, I will say he is impressing.
Regardless....I need to lounge now.
