Tourist Trapped: Conservatory Of Flowers

Tourist Trapped: Conservatory Of Flowers | Kitsch | Scoop.it

Each room or “gallery” of the Conservatory has lots of nooks and crannies, benches and overhangs to play around. One can certainly spend an eternity gazing at the fascinating bouncing Nepenthes. Or one could pretend one was in a magical secret garden deep within the Amazon Rainforest on a fairy finding expedition. I did both.

 

Making our way to the opposite end of the Conservatory, Tighe and I found ourselves at the current special exhibit: Boomtown: Barbary Coast at the Conservatory of Flowers. As explained on the website, “Get ready to jump ship into San Francisco’s rowdy past as the Conservatory of Flowers presents an all new garden railway display celebrating San Francisco’s gold rush Boomtown days and its infamous Barbary Coast neighborhood.”

 

I know what you’re wondering. And yes, there is a little section devoted to prostitutes. The special exhibit gallery was filled with little model trains, model ships, and mini-earthquakes. Boomtown looks like a Mr. Roger’s Make Believe version of San Francisco, which is to say that it is awesome and fun and a little bizarre.

A Slip of a Girl: Legged & Dangerous

A Slip of a Girl: Legged & Dangerous | Kitsch | Scoop.it

The idea of a girl with a gun in her garter is kind of hot, right? Reminds me of the old-time saloon girls and femme fatals. These pantyhose give the illusion of a gal being armed and dangerous with the tattoo-style printing of not only a hidden pistol on one leg, but a machine gun running down the other. They would be quite thrilling spotted beneath a long skirt -- especially one with a slit on the right side! (And now, undressing this girl would be disarming her!) I spotted these in shops on Etsy; but these Japan Harajuku hosiery pieces are much cheaper at eBay.

I really wanted a scooter when I lived downtown. The big drawback ws finding a secure place to park it any place I stopped. But, it would been so great for jaunting around town.
