Random Heart: Paper in the Trash Edition

Happy Thanksgiving 2019

It's a Tallulah-Palooza Throwback Thursday Thanksgiving! The cutest little turkey ever!

I'm thankful for so many things--today and every day. Thank you to those of you who actually look at my blog!

Rain = Grilled Cheese, Please

Chilly and rainy here today, so time for grilled cheese and tomato soup at Bread & Cie--and almost everyone else in the restaurant seemed to be having it too! #yum

Lounging Lizard

Hello, Mr. Lizardo!

We seem to have quite a population of lizards at the moment--and they all have their tails now since our darling next-door-neighbor cat moved away (this one has a full, long tail--it's just hidden under the flowerbox).

Sunsets, Winter: Yay!

 I'm so happy that the gorgeous winter sunsets are was 91 degrees at noon but then cooled off; there is rain coming (allegedly). I think I actually missed the best part of this, but I'm happy with this loveliness!

 We had lunch in DC at the Tune has been a bar and grill here, on Capitol Hill, for more than 60 years (there was a kitchen fire so it has been rebuilt); apparently before that, it housed a tailor's shop with a speakeasy upstairs.

It definitely was authentic! (And I love the signage...)

Way Cool

 The Renwick Gallery (part of the Smithsonian but not on the Mall) is one of my must-see museums in Washington. We saw an amazing exhibition by Ginny Ruffner called Reforestation of the Imagination. She has created these lovely glass tree stumps and came up with imaginary flowers, which were then animated in augmented reality by Grant Fitzpatrick. You download an app and then point your camera at the tree stump--and these wonderful flowers pop up that are not physically there; there is also an information button that tells you "facts" about the flowers. So very cool!

 There is also a show on view by artist Michael Sherrill, who creates these plants from ceramic and glass.

And finally, the Grand Salon space was filled by this work, Temple by David Best. This is an enormous room filled floor to ceiling with intricately filigreed raw wood carvings and structures. Visitors are given the opportunity to write on wooden plaques and leave them in remembrance of loved ones. Lots of these plaques and also was lovely and very moving.

If you are in DC, be sure to visit the Renwick.

Lovely Leaves

 I mean...just glorious. (It is extra nice if someone else rakes them up for you!)
