hang10tiki what fun. I sure wish we had been there too. You made his send off to Orlando so much fun. Any more photos to share?

=====================================

Special Delivery to Bullet. I finished his repairs and Dan and I decided to take them to his home. It's always so much fun to see his collections.

A friend of mine gave me some King's things she won in an auction. She said I should find a fan to give them too. That was so easy. This hallway is all King's memorabilia. Bullet is the number one fan they have.


He inspected my repairs and I passed!


Some went right back into the collection.


Can you tell which one I repaired????


So much fun stuff. Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki you come here for a visit and we'll take you to visit all the cool tiki homes like Bullets. Also I want Janelle to see the Chinese Buffet with all the HUGE Asian wood villages.

=============================

Another set of repairs have been accomplished. This time for Psycho Tiki D.

He had chipped a Purple Orchid and a SHAG mug and hoped I could hide them.


So first I used the Elmer's wood putty. Once dried I sanded it.


Same with the SHAG decanter. This was such a large chip that I


did it twice to get it filled.


I spent an hour trying to match these purples and failed. So I gave up for awhile but today


I got out more paints to mix and I got as close as I could and covered over the wood putty.


Good as I can do them.


Once they were dry I used ceramic sealer on both to make the acrylic paint water proof.


OK Psycho Tiki D it's time to pick them up.

hang10tiki for sure.

=====================================

Dan has filled our home with wonderful tiki art. At the same time all my trip souvenirs have gone into a drawer. I decided it was time to get them out.
Dan has always said that if you can't display it then why have it. So here starts the project to get my 300 shot glasses on the wall.

I collect these because on trips they are little pieces of art, they have the name of the place and take up almost no space in a suitcase. I just stack them inside of each other and roll them in newspaper. They have always gotten home without breaking.

This is the wall I want to use for my collection so all these things must move.


The wall was now ready for my project.


We cleared this wall so we could condense the art from this hallway and the bedroom.



I lined up the art in the way I wanted Dan to hang it.


All done and better than ever.


This will hold a lot of shot glasses if I can just remove the extra wood pieces. So I went to work.


Now the glasses were a perfect fit.


On each day trip to a new city with thrift stores we hadn't been to I continued to collect any shelving that would work. I fit them together like a puzzle.


While searching for all the shelves in thrift and antique stores I came across these Hawaii plates. One was missing but I bought the 7 anyway.


A few weeks later I found the last plate in a different city. Imagine that! So all eight are hung along with my entire shot glass collection.

OK Wendy, that's nice eye candy. First, that chunk lamp is totally in the way. Take it down and send it to me. What are friends for anyway. Now about those shot glasses. WOW, impressive grouping and super display tactics! I just hope you don't turn out to be one of those people who I run across at their garage sale letting dozens of their shot glasses go for 25 cents apiece. I suggest you do this: turn them all upside down and then select one and do a shot from it. Then rinse it and return to its spot turned right side up. Offer a shot to your guests, rinse and repeat. Then one day you can say you have had a shot from all of them. Have fun and cheers!

Danno thank you. It was a fun project.

8FT Tiki if I had read your message about 4 hours ago I could have said that I never drink alcohol. However tonight we went to the opening of the new tiki bar in Sacramento called The Jungle Bird. They allowed a few people to attend so they could practice. I donated paintings and ceramics for the bar so we got on the list. I drank a rum drink for the very first time. It had mostly lime juice and it was very good. But shots, I don't think they are my style. But it was a fun idea.

I bought most of the shots at Goodwill and other thrift stores for $25 cents to one dollar. Then some were full price on vacations. I treasure them all.

I will post photos of the party tomorrow. That drink has made me sleepy. Cheers, Wendy

Holy moly, it's been a while. I haven't even been stalking, just working away and being a bit of a recluse (and getting back into the clay studio).

Now I'm all caught up- amazing Sac Crawl (saw some photos on FB, and also from Moai Mike. Jon goes to the Mai Kai (and everywhere else), tons of Hula Girls, missing the Wish List (again), and lots of great stuff.

Sorry I've been a stranger for a bit (though I keep tabs on the Wendy and Dan show on Facebook, though I prefer TC, I'll tell ya.

Okay, just wanted to say hi, going to try to find my own thread and update it with some recent-ish ceramics stuff (been posting photos on instagram since it's a little easier).

Excited to see what the Wish List will bring!!!

Look forward to seeing documentation of Wendy enjoying a rum cocktail, too!!!

hang10tiki we have some of the same shot glasses too. No photo of me with the glass but one photo shows Dan with our glasses on the table. These were complimentary as we entered the door. I got one thinking I would pass it to Dan but the strong lime flavor was enough for me to continue on.

TikiAno I wrote on your thread so here I'll just say it's so good to have you back.

============================

On Wednesday October 26th at 4:30 PM The Jungle Bird tiki bar opens for business. The address is 2516 J street, Sacramento, CA.


Those of us who were fortunate to get to be there for the practice run lined up early.





Once the doors opened we were greeted with a complimentary rum and lime drink.


One of the owners, Buddy, asked if they did it right. They certainly did. It's wonderful.


I snapped a photo of his wife and her friend.



Now it was time to ogle all the fun tiki décor.





The bar from one angle and then


another.


I found a glass case full of tiki mugs. Woopie some of mine were in there too.


There are so many good places to sit it was hard to choose. Dan grabbed a seat while I continued to explore. To his left is the first Rum drink I have ever consumed. Just in case I had Dan drive us home! Also the lights were done by Muskrat aka Keith Richards.


I had given them two paint collages that I did by tearing paint off my pallet and sticking it on a canvas board. I told them they could hang them in the bathrooms. I found them in the hallway just outside. So if you have to wait your turn you can look at my art. It's so fun to be represented in this wonderful tiki bar.





There is even an outdoor sitting area. The weather was perfect for an opening so it was a popular place last night.


This gentleman is also an owner.


I hope that whenever you are in Sacramento you will be able to go to the Jungle Bird. It's awesome. Cheers, Wendy

Great pics, Wendy, looks like a fun place! Glad your beautiful paintings weren't relegated to the rest room(s)...
