Madison, Wisconsin. Our state capital. Home of the University of Wisconsin. I attended school here and Son and Dil are both alumni. During the warmer months, state street is a place you can just sit and be entertained for hours.
Hubby and I took a fun little get-away here last week-end. We used to go often,when my son and dil were living here. Since they have moved to Tempe, it's been less frequent. .We spent a bit of our time walking state street but it was BRRRR cold so we ended up ducking in shops a lot.
Also on our agenda was a little tour of the Veterans Museum. We both love history and we both love free!
It's also very realistic and filled with great memorabilia and touching tributes.
My little mosaic, filled with lot's of blue! The quilt was made in 1901, in honor of Wisconsin Civil War Veterans. It looked like it had been made last week, it was in such great condition.
This desk was utterly amazing! I wish I could have gotten closer, but it was roped off a bit.
My Dad was a veteran of WWII. He enlisted in the Navy at the tender age of 17. It was 1944, just the tail end and then he served through the Korean Conflict.
These pieces were pretty awesome! I wish antique road show had been around. I would have loved to known their value.
I am joining Mary @ Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
