I don't have time to post much , but I do want to share some pics of my favorite city, which I was blessed enough to have the opportunity to visit briefly last week. Above... sunset on the beautiful bay.
Below are shots from the extraordinary Musee Mechanique...the must see tourist attraction for me whenever we visit (read about it here http://www.museemechanique.org/). I am like a little kid at this place, running around with my hands full of quarters, so excited to watch these hand crafted antique arcade machines and mechanical musical instruments come to life. .. You Tube has a few pretty good videos available of the machines all lit up and working. Here's a link to one... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IK9cqLQ472s you have to wait about a minute or so through the video to see my favorite attraction.. the carnival :-)
This kind of stuff just makes me smile...
Lots of people are scared of this one below, and she can be an overwhelming site. You can't tell from the picture, but she must be at least 6 feet tall, and for the price of two quarters she'll laugh uproariously while her whole body shakes. How do they do that?!!!!
Below, a store window from the thrift store lover's paradise in Mission District neighborhood. Also, this is the neighborhood to get an excellent meal in San Francisco without breaking your entire budget.
A shot of Lombard street (crookedest street in the world) from the cable car... not the greatest pic.. I think my hands were shaking, from cold, huger or nervousness at the height!
The world famous...
Things are really nuts at work. I'll be traveling most of the week this week and I am desperately behind in filling orders for The Polka Dot Pixie , so after tonight, I will be taking a bit of a blogging and internet surfing break for a week or two, or until I can get myself all situated and caught up. I look forward to returning to share photos of some new mini dolls that have been in the works for a few weeks now. In the meanwhile, Alice is still available at my Glitter and Grunge page, and the Imagine Fairy will be available on my PFATT page tomorrow. The same discount of 15% and free shipping applies for blog readers. I will still be checking my emails daily, so please feel free to email me if you have any questions
Hope you all had a blessed and joyous Easter weekend! See you in a few :-)
