First, thanks to all of you who looked at my photos of the International District.  I have a real treat for you today!!  Our DD has a birthday in May and our SIL has a birthday in July.  For part of their gifts, we took them to the Chihuly Garden and Glass at Seattle Center.  I had wanted to do this for quite some time.  I was totally amazed.  If you ever get a chance to see one of his displays GO!  I have divided this into 2 posts.  Today it will  be the inside. Tomorrow, I will show you the garden.  I can't tell you how much we enjoyed this day!! I will warn you that there are lots of pictures but not too many words.

 The Glass Forest

 The Sea Life Room.  This was about 15 feet tall.

Amazing details!

 This is called the Persian ceiling.  The glass ceiling is covered with these incredible glass sculptures.  It is lighted from above.

 The Mille Fiori Room.This area covered about 40 feet at least.

 Ikebana and Float Boat.  The floor was mirrors so everything was reflected as though you were on a very calm lake.

 Chandeliers- about 8 to 10 feet wide.

 About 6 feet long and 3 feet wide.

Tomorrow I will take you outside this amazing place.
