Had to stop into "Castle in the Air" for a visit! Another of my favorite places. I got to chat with Ulla Milbrath, a wonderful artist, teacher and blogger about Blue fish clothing and other things while Penny checked out the stores goodies.
Another "must visit" store is Tail of the Yak. Such beautiful displays...I bought a few paper garlands and lanterns for my studio and Penny found some fun things too.
Back on Fourth St. we stopped in at Crate and Barrel. We don't have one where we live so it's always fun to see what's new in the design world. Penny found some nice black and white plates and I just took some photos of things for inspiration.
A fun pillow full of embroidered circles..
and can't miss on a breakfast at Bette's Diner!
The Ethnic Arts store is an amazing place full of folk art from all over the world. Rooms full of hand made sculptures, textiles, furniture, plus jewelry and the nicest women owners. I put in an order for a David Marsh table for our new breakfast nook. My husband converted our old laundry room into a fun nook off our almost remodeled kitchen. The nook has been finished except for the right sized table for months now. So hoping to pick it up when we go back up to Berkeley for Jason's graduation in May.
Justin has taken over the nook for doing homework and eating on the "Costco" table because I can't seem to ever get the dining table uncovered with all the art supplies, sewing machine, paint and felt!
Senior prom this Saturday for Justin, so I will be working at the store and missing Teesha Moore's workshop at the Art Clinic...
I will survive! and stop whining....it's just that Teesha is one of my favorite people. She has encouraged and changed so many artist's lives in so many ways through Artfest and Artfiberfest and sharing her wonderful art and ideas along with Tracy, her husband that when she is this close by it's hard not to want to take her workshop.
Anyway.... a few more photos from Ethnic Arts and then back to regular programming...I did finish 6 foxes, some elephants, and pin cushions to deliver to Imagine. Still addicted to Pinterest, help!!!
Have a great weekend!
