We were greeted warmly and given a laminated card with pictures of various items in the museum to find, a scavenger hunt of sorts. The museum houses a wonderful collection of miniatures of all types, new an old. The detail, craftsmanship, and creativity, is really wonderful. J was drawn to bonnet that had unbelievably tiny bead work, as well as teepee depicting a Black Crow camp. C took note of a beautiful Japanese doll that was from the 1920 As we were looking around the “Polly Pocket” room D started laughing and told us that her daughter used to have Polly Pockets when she was little, which brought back fun memories for her. We walked by a display of toy airships from the 1930’s. I was having trouble coming up with the name of the one that caught on fire, It starts with an H, I said,…like Heimlich. C is the one that retrieved the word and pretty quickly too…The Hindenburg!
We found a few items on the scavenger hunt card and returned it when we were leaving. We were asked if we found any or all of the items, we told the truth and said ”only a few.”There was a prize for even given it a shot,which was the little yarn dolls. There was a huge tub of them to choose from. Everyone seemed to get such a kick out of them, I hope they all made it home.
We lunched at Annie’s. As we ate lunch the rain was moving in, so no walk today. After lunch we took a drive through the historic Park Hill neighborhood and popped into the Spinellis grocery store, and enjoyed it’s nostalgic atmosphere. Oh how we love our time on Ladies Day, singing and laughing and sharing memories.
