Wonderful Things

Shortly after moving I heard that the San Diego National History Museum would be having a King Tut exhibit. As I love all things ancient Egyptian, I jumped at the opportunity, as San Diego is now only about an hour and a half away! So Patrick and I drove down and we met up with Carla, of Tiny Angry Crafter, who I spent a great deal of time with when I tagged along on Patrick’s San Diego business trip earlier this year.

The exhibit is actually a collection of recreations, showcasing detailed replicas of the items found in Tutankhamun’s tomb. While I was disappointed, I will admit that I completely understand that items of both historical importance and age cannot be jetted around the world, and handled with extreme frequency. I guess it just gives us one more excuse to visit Egypt one day.

After our visit to the museum, which also showcased dinosaur and skull exhibits, we snapped a few photos for our respective blogs, complete with silly adventurer shots.

Carla is hands down one of the most wonderful persons I have had the joy of meeting, and makes me so thankful for this blog, as I may not have met her without it! She’s a delight to be around, especially because we are so similar. We love vintage, Egypt, Disney, cosplay and being silly. I’m so happy we live just 90 miles away instead of 1,000 and look forward to more adventures together.

  1. Your brooch and earrings are to die for! I love the silly adventurer shots. The ones of you two peaking around the palm are fabulous! What a wonderful friendship this blog has brought you.


  2. Thank you again so much for hanging out, Janey! I had an absolute blast with you and Patrick! And thank you for your kind words, I may or may not be making wibbly faces. I can’t wait for more adventures!

  3. Forget Indie, I want to go on exciting treasure hunt to ancient lands with you two wildly stylish explorers. These photos are tons of fun and put the biggest smile on my face. You both look terrific and like you were having a blast. What a great way to spend a day!

  4. You two look perfect for this exhibit. Great scenery! I went to the real Ramses II, Pharaoh and His Time exhibit in Utah, back in, I think 1986, when they still did tours with the authentic artifacts from Egypt. I was only 12 but i vividly remember some of the artifacts, it was mystical, had a profound affect on me. The jewlery, wow!

  5. So jealous! I’ve been fascinated with ancient Egypt for as long as I can remember – even wrote a report in 2nd grade. I love your jewelry, too!
    It’s cool to find a friend with so many common interests.

  6. I already commented on Carla’s website, but you both look really great. I love some of the photos that you included here of the two of you – it’s kind of funny to read two very different expressions on your faces. It’s making me want to see a buddy comedy about lady adventurers in 1912.

  7. Oo I used to be SO obssessed with Ancient Egypt! My parents took me to Cairo when I was about 11 years old, and it was an amazing experience. We went in a pyramid!! Quite glad I did it as a child actually, because those tunnels are tiny and I’m now quite an Amazonian adult.

    Looks like you had lots of fun with your friend, love both of your outfits.

    Have a lovely NYE, and I hope you’ve had a super Christmas x
