The little things blog Henry and I made a quick visit to the Cincinnati Art Museum this afternoon. I love this Chihuly sculpture so much! I have a tutorial on the blog about how you can make your own Chihuly sculpture at home with the kids (link in the comments). Ps...the museum is FREE! You just pay $4 to park and if you'd like you can also make a donation to the museum :) 6 hour ago via Facebook
