Chippy you are so much fun. I love the photo of you and Dan. He was so impressed with all that Roger had made and brought to the sale. You two make a great team.

LoriLovesTiki remember how people were horrified to see others vacation photos in all the TV sitcoms? I've always loved to see my friends and families photos and I just hoped that TC'ers would like to see mine because we live the tiki lifestyle. You have put my mind to rest.

Atomic Tiki Punk I thirve on the adrenaline from all the hugs and smiles. Dan is elated with all his new tikis to work into his collection. Tiki friends 7 days a week is all we need to keep energized. It's always good to see you and Jungle Ginger.

GROG dang it why didn't I take a photo of the crowd running away? I think that happened when you flashed your new chest zipper. Don't forget to post the Doug Horne photo of the two of you.

Atomic Tiki Punk you just had to be there. Oh you were but I mean with GROG and I.

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

It's hard to leave Marketplace and all our friends. But I just dive back into tiki work and dream of the next trip. We have a great Tiki Ohana here in Northern California and there's always something coming up.

Hey Monty / Marone Tiki, are we having Tiki Tuesday on Franklin Blvd Tommorrow night?

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

Dan just left to pick up our cat and mail. Next while I open molds in the garage he'll unpack his tiki treasures. He went wild at Marketplace and I'll share photos of his haul tomorrow.

Step by step I get closer to starting the detail work on Wish List #4. Right now I'm casting and cleaning the basics. Every day we can cast and clean up without rain is a huge plus.

I do hope to start organizing the Wish List binder with photos of the projects that I'll use to build each Wish.

Here's some more work. It may look like the same as other days but often something will change.

One by one I'm also making the rest of the Zombie Torches. They are $100 each in the color of your choice. I will be making 20 with the flame and a few without. All in colors other than the run of 30 which were green and brown. I will still paint the detail on the woman in enamel.

I build up the top and make it fit the flame for each one. The flame is held in place with earthquake putty when in use.




I take a break and let the water in the clay on top "equalize".


I carve detail in the background.


I smoothed it with water and a paint brush.





After putting that mug away we set up and poured a lot of molds.


We always save the slip that comes back out of the molds after they sit.


I needed more slip so it was off to Alpha Fired Arts for more slip.


We found an estate sale at a hoarders home. I found these treasures. I like to decorate with abalone trivets and I use trays to carry my art and glazes. A great haul for me.


Now its time to leave you and to get working. I hear Dan I can't wait to hug my cat. Cheers, Wendy

lunavideogames Happy Holidays to you too. I sure got a cute photo of you.

hang10tiki I keep watching Collecting Tiki to see all your newest treasures. Dan found many at Marketplace which I'm going to share here.
=========================================================================

On the way home we got to witness the snow that had closed the pass on Marketplace day. It was 27 outside. My home town of Elk Grove is setting records in the 20's.


We pass this sign every time we go South to Marketplace. Is the owner of Tiki Central real or did some mysterious man take the name from this sign?


Our timing was perfect. As we neared our home we got to see para-shooters coming in for a landing.


I need to stop for lunch. I'll be back later to show Dan's loot from our trip. Cheers, Wendy

LoriLovesTiki look what I saw on my trip. Any chance you could hook a ride on this truck when it leaves your state for the next Marketplace?

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

Here's some Chippy news. At Marketplace he was seen running off with Pineapple tops and people were talking and asking, "what's up with Chippy? The news is that he's starting his own Pineapple plantation in his backyard. Here's how it looks today. Super cool Chippy keep up the good work.



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

Dan knew this would be the last Marketplace for awhile. We avoid driving in the snow. It was close this trip.
He brought all his "will work for tikis" money and spent it all. There were bargains everywhere. Just so you
can see how good the shopping was...he spent $530.

Here's a bunch of photos of all his treasures.

Overall view.


















The big carved wooden tiki by Skootiki is now in our family room.


He was able to put the new cook island tiki on the top to make a tiki pole.


This is the newest room to turn tiki. I took down more of my own paintings so Dan could start on the walls.


Made by HB Tiki and now hung in the dining room.


Dan is still searching for places to display each of his new treasures that's what he loves to do when we get home.

This is what I bought on the trip.


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

If you are ever in an Airport and see these funky suitcases they are ours. I hate to check tags on bags that all look the same. I took a can of spray paint and messed them up. Then I got bright tags and some rainbow straps. We'll see ours coming a mile away.



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

We did work today but I'm going to bed early so I'll stop here. Have a great night. Cheers, Wendy

Dan did well with his shopping trip. After seeing your house I'm not surprised that a new room would open up for his collection. The man has one of the best!

Aloha Wendy,
You rock my world!
It was such a pleasure meeting you at Don the Beachcombers last Saturday.

Sorry I thought I got a photo with you, but I think that was YOUR camera! So, here's me with Crazy Al (...and my new gold tooth!)
You are a sheer delight in person! (ah... & on line too, I mean, of course, just this was the first time I got to meet you face to face!)
Anyways...
Big ALOHA from da' Big Island!
Brad Tiki-Shark Parker

Tiki Shark Art thank you so much for the compliments. It was really fun to meet you and to see the excitement your visit generated at Marketplace. Please say hi to Konacat for us. We enjoyed a day with him years ago. Now as little lost tiki said, "get back to painting". We are all waiting for the next step.

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

MaukaHale Dan's written you a nice long letter that should go into the mail tomorrow along with some garage band music. Keep an eye out for it. He loved the music you sent, thank you so much.


hang10tiki not only that but he parks well too.
===============================================================================

What a great community we have with our love of tiki. I smile all day long because of the people I've met at all these wonderful events.

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

When Dan retired from work one of his gifts was a Tommy Bahama shirt. He tore a hole at the top of the pocket.
I liked this shirt so I repaired it today. I first found a piece of matching cloth. I ran a matching color of
thread back and forth from the inside


and the outside


until it was good enough that he'll still be able to wear it and the hole won't get bigger.


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

Back to the clay.

Bob's, bowls, War Gods and a torch. Not bad for a pouring day. I cleaned all the mold lines off of them.


This bowl will be for one of the cannibal bowls for the Wish List. I've poured a few so that a choice can be made. With the top edge or


without it.


The bowl can be cut at any height. Something to think about.


The bags are working well at holding in the water. If only I'd found them sooner.


Four torches.


Many other tikis.


This is all part of the set up for Wish List #4. I'm looking forward to getting started with the custom work. There just are not enough hours in each day.

Thank you all for the visit. Wendy
