Milwaukee Art Museum

Travel hiccups require snappy problem solving to maximize your extended time. Such was the case when Miss Irene came to town with all her rain fury and we found ourselves stranded, rather wedged in the town of Beloit, Wisconsin.

We pointed in the direction of Milwaukee and here is what we came up with:

The Milwaukee Art Museum 

((gasp, flushed cheeks an immediate need to pee))

All of these reactions flooded when I saw MAM's Dutch & Flemish collection.

Jan van Os Flowers in Terra-cotta Vase 1780

Le Père Jacques (Woodgatherer), 1881

If you remember my recap from my trip to Holland in July, and my decorative arts course I have a peaked interest on such topics. Call me nerdy but stumbiling upon this collection was neat.  

Murano, Italy Nef Ewer, Late 16th century

 To appease my husband we also made it to a Brewers game! They are afterall rated #1 this season, and a cold MGD does the trick 

Wisconsin is a beautiful place with kind folks, all of which is more enjoyable during a balmy summer versus the rain and harshest of winters.

With that to the grandaddy of them all lets have one hell of a labor day weekend!
