hang10tiki and ebTiki Bob is so happy you love him, me too.
=============================================================

This will be the last post until we return from Marketplace at Don the Beachcomber's so I'm posting lots of photos of the Crawl mug.

It was time to spray the last of the mugs so to make space on the shelf I put the first load into the kiln and turned it on.


Dan set up for me and started bringing out the mugs from the kitchen.


This time I started earlier so the sun couldn't reach me. We thought I should be further away from the shed.


On the very first one I could see the glaze accumulating on the patio floor.


One done and not too much on the shed.


Work work work.


My tiki army.


The floor gets redder and the shed begins to show some color.


I'm all done.


Dan begins the clean up.


Being further from the shed meant more flew through the air and landed behind the shed where we store our "green waste" garbage cans.


Dan hosed down the cans, patio and shed.


All the mugs have been sprayed and now I'll just fire one load after the next. I'm not going to like paying my electric bill. The square tapa mug is by MP. He gave it to us with a discount because the glaze wasn't perfect. I decided to try another experiment, I hope it works because Dan's a big fan of MP's mugs.


I enjoy posting here and reading your comments so much that leaving is difficult. I do know that I'll run into some of you at Marketplace and that helps.
While we are gone please feel free to post here and to have fun. I'll be watching from our hotel's computer.

Until we meet again, cheers, Wendy and Dan

Have a safe trip. Looking forward to more fun pics with Dan & Wendy!

hang10tiki thank you, we started at noon and six hours later the GPS said severe traffic ahead. So just one hour shy of LA we pulled off, had dinner and checked into a hotel. We are rested and ready for a fun and easy day.

littlegiles I've already taken one fun photo of Dan and I'll do my best at Marketplace to find some more that eveyone will enjoy.

Yesterday we came home to find that hang10tiki had done a photo montage of Dan and I and our wedding. He used photos that I've shared here in the past. We were so thrilled and emotions flowed to watch these.
Thank you so much hang10tiki. That was so dear.

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

Well friends no photos until we return. Thank you for still visiting and writing notes. I'll keep checking back. (: Wendy

have a great time at the marketplace! Don't buy too much stuff. One day I'm getting out there and I'm bringing an empty suitcase with me. LOL

The Bob necklaces are so clever!

Have fun this weekend! The mugs look great. I can't wait to see them all done. Here's to hoping this experiment goes better than the last. For Dan's sake!

LoriLovesTiki it is really hard to destroy molds because they are so hard to make. It was 2011 when I thought of saving the fronts for those necklaces and it made it so much easier to dump the rest of the pieces. There are so many wonderful events on the Pacific coast. We have fallen in love with Tiki Kon in Portland, the Tiki Oasis, Tiki Caliente, for campers Mohave Oasis. The fun part of Marketplace is that it is in Don the Beachcomber's and it comes often. All of them are so much fun. Let us know if you ever come so we can meet up.

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

Today we went to Venice Beach which is so famous for muscle builders. It must happen on the weekend because we saw the equipment but no men. It was not a place to take a vacation. Once was enough.

Then we went on to Redondo Beach which is super nice and a great spot for a beachy vacation. We walked the pier and then dropped off a mug at a friends home while he was at work.

Now we are in long Beach and tomorrow is Marketplace. We will see so many friends that it will be a day of hugs and fun.

It will all end too soon. Cheers, Wendy

Today was Marketplace and it was booming. Lot's to see and many people to hug. No mishaps so far. I'll have some fun photos to share when we get back. Right now we are waiting for Woo Hoo and Soccor Tiki to go to dinner. Oh, they are here.

I had the luck of running into tikilongbeach. I really enjoy meeting everyone who reads my thread. It was also fun meeting Mr. Aloha. I think my photos of him will be the best of our trip.


Today is 9/7 and GROG has his surgery on 9/11. If you have a chance wish him another get well soon.
God Bless you GROG.

Cheers, Wendy

Love the mugs and the Tiki Bob 'o' necks In a way it's a bit of a shame to lose the beautiful pattern behind Bob, but that would be one heavy necklace LOL. Have fun at the beach!

WooHooWahine we appreciated you and Soccor driving to our hotel. We made it all the way home today and are resting.

tigertail777 I did make two wall plaques from that part of the mold. Dan has one and I don't remember where the second one went. It makes me smile to know you like the mug and necklaces. Thank you.

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

We are back from the Don the Beachcomber Marketplace. We had a lot of fun seeing everyone and Dan found a few tiki treasures to bring home. We also made it to the Long Beach Aquarium where we found a tiki painting and a tiki in the bushes. Tomorrow I'll download the photos to share.

Thank you for all your notes and visits while we were away tomorrow it's back to work.

Cheers, Wendy

hang10tiki after hitting a huge plastic garbage can on the LA freeway we were very thankful to arrive home safely. Part of our bumper broke but we were fine. We didn't see where it went after I hit it because the freeway was full and moving fast. Even still it was a great trip.

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

Places we saw on our trip were Venice Beach, Redondo Beach, Long Beach, Don The Beachcomber's sale and the Long Beach Aquarium. The best part is always seeing our friends and making new ones. Here's our trip.

After a day of driving we reached our first hotel. Dan's falling asleep.


Venice Beach was huge. The walk with the shops not near as nice as shown in the movies.


On the pier at Redondo Beach Pier. A great place to visit with a beautiful beach.


In the bar at Don's.
I delivered two of the Sacramento Crawl mugs on this trip. They have promised that after checking them out they would keep them in the box until after the crawl. Saving someone shipping always makes me feel good.


This photo is for Kele.


The Smokin' Menehunies in Don't dining room. I probably spelled that wrong.


I traded a vintage tiki shirt for a vintage flowered Hawaiian shirt with Tiki Roots Rocka. Thank you much, I love the shirt that "fits".


The main room.


HB Tiki


GO Tiki


Can't beat these smiles.


Christina and Buzzy.


Side room at Don's.


I found a good way to cool down at Don's.


Sunset Mike


Honu at the Long Beach Aquarium. We went on Saturday with around 20,000 other people. Try a weekday for your visit here.


Dragon Fish.


King Crab.


It's always fun to run into tiki art.


Even a Moai in the garden.


A nautilus is a scary creature.


Soccor Tiki, Woo Hoo Wahine, and Dan


Dan, myself and Woo Hoo


Sunset the night before we headed home.


It is going to be 103 here today. I'm going into the garage to see if I can get some work done before it turns into a furnace. Thank you for viewing our trip, Wendy
