Paper Moon in Baltimore-And YOU think I have an imagination????

Isn't this sign exceptional???? I loved it and all the junk on the Moon part.....
Wow, while I was in Baltimore, I stayed an extra day and Didi picked me up and took me to a Museum (I have photos to show later on of that) and also a fab place called "Paper Moon." It is an eating establishment but we only ordered something cold for walking back to the Museum parking lot. Lots to take photos of and imagine in quilts.
I don't know if this person had a thing for collecting toys and maiquins or what but they were all over the place along with sinks, toilets, and bathtubs filled with flowers, leaves and vines...so cool....but I don't think my husband would appreciate them in between my bottle trees...I still love the idea of glass tree like the ones in the next blog below though.
Awesome building colors!
This is just one of the walls inside the eatery....how much dust do you think these things hold?
Hey, I love my shadow in there....she's always with me
Ever seen this shade of bath tub? Me either.......
Ever thought about Pez Holders for a window curtain?
If you could get the faucets to work, you wouldn't have to worry about watering these....
Someone gave this poor girl a black eye.....
This elephant was on top of the building....
Cool birdhouse and sculpture out of silverware on the right.....
I love lime green but wasn't crazy about this on the girl....how about you?
Fun poster that was somewhat of a story quilt idea......IF you have ever eaten at Paper Moon, please comment....how was the food????
-------------------------------------------
I have to express my opinion here also. I have been reading about people who are angry about body scans and the like before they get on an airplane. I have already gone through many of the ones that they can see your whole body....no problem. I want them to see whatever they need to see because I want to be safe and to be able to come home to my family, friends and loved ones.
I cannot imagine why someone would want to cause trouble when they are only trying to make sure we are safe. Yes, it is a pain to wait and go through all of this but it is better than getting on an airplane with someone who has only bad intentions for innocent people. If people don't want scans and body searches, then stay home or drive somewhere. I want to be safe.

Those are definitely unique decorations, fun and funky.

What a fun place! I enjoyed looking at all the creative decor. But I wouldn't want to be the person responsible for dusting!

Now I have to go to Paper Moon next time I am up in Baltimore! Love it!

The bathtub cracked me up...don't know if you noticed lots of bathtubs planted on end with Virgin Mary Statues in them (sort of a suburb Baltimore thing) but my neighbors irreverently referred to them as Virgins in a half-bath...)

Looks like a fun place to check out. You had some great weather while you were there!

It would be interesting to find out about the creator/decorator of the Paper Moon.

LOVE the pictures!!!

You asked about the scanners at the airports. My family travels quite a bit and we have many stories of getting through security with stuff you weren't supposed to or getting hasseled about dumb things (the best yet was my nine year old's ten pound fossil he found on the beach in Michigan that TSA said could be used as a weapon, but "this time we will let you carry it on, but next time check it." )Next time? I just don't feel any safer with the radiation scanners or ineffective groping. IS the groper going to have me actually lift up my boobs? Because I could hide a lot UNDER them! :) Why reinvent the wheel? Israel has great security. Why not copy them? The TSA have to be trained to be "thinkers" not regular people doing an insanely boring job!!! Whew! Thanks!

I missed your talk at the Baltimore guild - no sitter. I was quite disappointed. I have eaten many times at Paper Moon and they have great food. The menu has lots of comfort foods, but also food with flair. It is a good place for everyone to find something they will like.

The city of Baltimore should pay you for making it look so amazing. Didi did a good job as tour guide.
