Blown Away by Chihuly

The Museum of Fine Arts has the most amazing exhibit right now.  It's Chihuly and the amazing blown glass sculptures he has created over the years. He has designed glass works for the Venetian and the creations were just awe inspiring.  For the entire 20 minutes we were in the exhibit (and we went through twice!) my breath was just taken away. I felt like I had walked into Wonderland or Willy Wonka's chocolate factory! There really are no words to describe the beauty that was there and the picture speak for themselves!
 I felt like I was in Willy Wonka's chocolate room while walking around this display!

wow. This is indeed pretty awesome. I get an under-the-sea vibe from many of the images. I LOVE the room where visitors are allowed to lay upon the floor. How cool is that!
