I hope everyone is enjoying the hustle & bustle of the holiday season…and also finding a bit of time to relax and reflect on the events of the year. I still have boxes of decorations to unpack and set out and gifts to create and wrap but today, for whatever reason, I feel like I’m over the “hump” (on a Wednesday – go figure!) and on the downhill slide with everything. This has been a crazy year with lots of changes in my life (that seems to be more and more what a “normal” year is for me!) and I’m looking forward to whatever 2015 brings along.
I wanted to thank you for following my sporadic blog postings and let you know I really do hope to do a more consistent job of it next year. I’ve got plenty of art to share, dedicating the time to share it seems to be my stumbling block. 🙂
Warm hugs, Lynne

‘Tis the season for…well, some holiday inspired pics!
I went with a friend to the Eiteljorg Museum to view a wonderful photo exhibit a few weeks ago. While we were there we also made a stop at their annual “Jingle Rails” exhibit. What fun!!
The entire (large!) room was full of miniature buildings and different model train set ups.
Since the museum focusing on the art of the western United States most of the lovely buildings were small replicas of lodges and other gorgeous sites from that region.
I hadn’t anticipated taking any photos on our excursion and was caught at a rare time I didn’t have one of my cameras on hand.
Thank goodness for cell phones! I especially enjoy taking photos on it using some of the “alternate” cameras you can download so these all have some different effects or sizing to them to make them even more “magical”. 🙂
Along with the wonderful western scenes they also had a section that represented Indianapolis. One section showed the state fair midway – which you don’t usually get to see in the wintertime!
It was fun to see our town in a small scale! There was a larger section featuring downtown buildings and landmarks.
They even had a small version of Lucas Oil Stadium, home of our Colt’s football team.
I think my favorite had to be the miniature “Christmas Tree” that is constructed each year by stringing lights on the monument in the circular center of Indy.
I hope you enjoyed this wintery tour of the exhibit and that you are enjoying the holiday season!
