WONDERFUL WASHINGTON (part 2)

Well.....here is that part TWO that I promised from my Washington DC vacation.....
Why?
Well, the truth is, I really believe that design is EVERYWHERE.
So much so, that I want you to look at these attractions and photos NOT like a slideshow from Aunt Cathy, but rather as a notation of the design of things that I thought were GREAT in Washington....
So...here we go:
This.....the side of the building was shimmery....
.....soooooo shimmery...

This mural was lovely! Retro!

Union Station! Very pretty inside and out!!!

Union Station - I am a sucker for vaulted ceilings!!!

All the subtlety that I enjoy!


THIS WAS FUN!
The Spy Museum!!
VERY COOL!

There was a BOND VILLAN EXHIBITION....that was GREAT!
Some might even say the exhibition was EXQUISITE!

An actual tool kit........only slightly used......
(EW)

Lipstick Pistol = awesome!

WATCH FOR NINJAS!
OH
MAH
GAWD!

ANOTHER thing to shove up your butt......oh those crazy spies!!

There was a room detailing how pigeons were used for spying......

ANOTHER REASON TO HATE THEM.
There. I said it!

Look at that discreet camera around his neck.....
DAMN Pigeon paparazzi!

Cool spy related 1950's toys....
I WANTED THEM ALL!

WAIT.....Julia Child was a spy?????????
She never mentioned it here:
We were SO CLOSE.
I guess you never can tell who is a spy!!

NEEEEEEEEEEEEED this 007 wallpaper!!!

Yep. I bought a flask scarf to wear.
Why wouldn't you?

Yup. Makes sense to me!

UM......okay....
Better safe than sorry?

I turned myself into a Bond Villain.
SEXXXXXXY!
CHECK OUT THE SPY MUSEUM! It was super cool!!!
The next day we spent in Georgetown. It was LOVELY!


These idiots are waiting in cue for cupcakes.
MOMMA didn't raise no fool who stands in cupcake lines!!
HEY....remember the stairs in The Exorcist.....
When the Priest gets thrown out the window....and falls down the stairs.......

My husband re-enacts the famous scene.
Well.....except me throwing him down the stairs part.....
Lovely hills in Georgetown!

Nice sign!
Instead of waiting for a cupcake - we sat and had a mini pie!!!!
PIE SISTERS - Check them out!!!
SOOOOOO GOOOD! One banana cream pie and one sourcream/apple pie!!!

Wonderful place!!!!!
The next day was at the Smithsonian again.....


The Air and Space Museum......was NEATO! 

SO MANY PLANES!!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved these retro flight attendant outfits!!
How great would I look in that hat???

Yup. Its the space crapper.

New robot that replaces people!

High fives!!

and lastly.....the Tophookers.
Not the same as the Bottom Hookers.
So that was it!
Out big trip!!
It was delightful!
You should consider a nice Washington visit! Lots to see and eat!!!!!!
