Me-Made-May: Day 5

Today I went to see the Faces Concealed in Gold exhibition that was on at the Museum of Ethnography. As well as gold and silver masks there were also ones made from wood. Some of the masks were so beautiful! So much work had gone into them, so many tiny details. Others were asymmetrical, to show illness. Unfortunately I wasn't allowed to take photos of the exhibition. Why do most museums have this rule? I don't understand it. You can see photos of the gold masks from Dr Zelnik's collection here though. I love the scorpion masks.

I wore my me-made black and white dress and belt  (and a me-made petticoat and undies too but they aren't visible. Thankfully). And now I am also wearing my aubergine cardigan because it rained quite a bit and made the air cool down.

 I made my friend Tom come with me and it was a nice warm day so we walked along the river to get there. That's the Chain Bridge and the palace in the background. 

We passed by the Shoes on the Danube memorial on the way.

Tom loved these stairs :)

Then after leaving the museum and getting over our museum fatigue (I had never heard of this until today) we went to the cafe in Szabadság tér. I really like that place - right in the middle of a park, kids running all around having lots of fun and making lots of noise, people walking their dogs. That park has a nice atmosphere.

A different waiter took our order to the one who brought our drinks so the second one just assumed I was the one who was getting the iced coffee with ice cream and Tom the beer. How wrong was he. I like beer!


  1. Isn't it fantastic when you get to show off your me-made dress in photos with such pretty backgrounds. My favourite is the one of you on the bridge/walkway. So pretty!

  2. Thanks!

    I think I should stop taking pictures inside at all and just go outside for the nice backgrounds. It makes a huge difference. I thought I could show people a little of Budapest too :)

  3. Budapest looks amazing. I love the shape and the print of your dress too.

  4. love the dress and the pictures are great! Looks like a lot of fun!
