Puppets Past

Today was a good day to get out of town and do something different. And different I did. I love museums; it doesn’t matter what kind either.

An hour and a half drive brought me to the Valentinetti Museum in Bremerton.

This is where puppets meet my nightmares. It is eerily interesting, and surprisingly I didn’t meet Mr. Rogers. But I met quite the opposite.

The history behind puppeteers is captured in this quaint museum, which by the way resides upstairs to the Historical Society & Museum. Just off the water, two opposite worlds collide, reality of ghosts of past, and fairytale.

Who doesn’t love a good story?

A little eerie, scary, creepy, whatever you my want to call it, but fascinating at the same time. Entertainment at its best, in the day.

And of course the skeletons are my favorite. I mean, who doesn’t love a skeleton? Especially this one….he’s so cute!!!

I find the past fascinating, especially when there is a bit of quirkiness, darkness, involved.

Who wouldn’t love this horse galloping across stage in a make believe world? Or this lion?

It takes us out of reality and puts us in a world of make believe. When we feel that maybe all hope is gone, there is still a world, which in this case here at the museum, made kids and I’m sure adults….for a moment…happy.

Just a glimse…

Just a moment.
