We have been attempting to take advantage of living where we do and taking day trips. This week it was San Diego. We started by looking for a wood working store in Solano Beach. The store had closed but was replaced by the marvelous import store, The David Allen Collection. Wonderful wooden furniture, tree roots carved into "objects of art". My favorite was a mass of Indonesian puppets from the 30's. There are 95 of these marvelous "people", an entire puppet theater troupe.

Then to the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park. Sea Creatures of Arline Fisch. To call it crocheted wire it to do it all a dis-service.

First post using the new Apple computer and finding the photos to upload. Success. Now to go practice Photoshop.
