First of all, Happy (belated?) Birthday, Wendy! Hope it was a great one!

Yes, very glad TC is back, that, and combined with work, kept me away. The Horror in Clay mugs are ridiculously beautiful- the recipients are very lucky to receive pieces of art that have taken so much of your time and love. Hope to see photos of those lucky enough to receive them.

Those Innsmouth mugs are the BEST! I read and reread that story (along with a few other favorites by Lovecraft) at least once a year! Great Job Sister!

Professor G thank you. I love praying mantises. I carried him to the garden and let him go. The mugs look better when seen without a flash. I'm happy for the thumbs up.

TikiAno 63 is a good year for me, not so for Robin Williams. I'll miss him.
I would love to see photos here of those who get the mugs.

little lost tiki thank you brother. I'm going to miss my Kinny hug since we are missing Tiki Oasis this year. I've enjoyed watching all the art that you are taking. You sure do work hard.

hang10tiki I'm so happy that they are done and I can work to finish off all the backed up projects.

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

We are not going to Tiki Oasis this year so we are going to miss all of you who we routinely see there. Bummer.

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

The last thing I needed to do for Tiki Atari was to ship him the kickstarter mold. Dan said Wendy we are out of peanuts should I ball up some newspapers? I thought about it for awhile and came up with the idea of using the bottoms from a whole bunch of boxes.

So first we strapped the mold and poured a mug. So when he gets it one will be ready to come out of the mold. I think it will keep the pieces even more secure for the journey across the country.


Here's what the bottom of the box looked like with the cut box bottoms.


Dan lifted the heavy mold into place.


We surrounded the sides with cut boxes.


Here's a photo of Dan cutting the boxes with my electric knife. It really works well on cardboard and sponge rubber.


Here the sides are all done and


then a layer on top. Taped it shut and he was off to the post office.


Tiki Atari here comes the mold!



Back to ceramics tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

Those Innsmouth Horror in Clay mugs are stunning. I'm drinking out of my regular one right now and I have to say I am absolutely jealous I won't be drinking out of those anytime soon. Just like the torch mugs, they are spectacular and singularly impressive.

Luckily I should be able to enjoy the Sac Crawl Coconut mug in due time though.

Abbey will not put down the bowl you made for her (the Hogwarts bowl) and even made a wand for you. She won't let me ship it though cause she wants to hand deliver it, and also join your hug collection.

Thank you ever so much, not just for your tireless works of art, but your constant posts and letting us all into the Wendy and Dan show every day.

Loki-Tiki next time I see your kids they will be as tall as I am. Hug them for me.

dartharnie the regular mugs have wonderful detail. I'm looking forward to having one of those. Tiki Atari is sending me a surprise box. I worked all day on the crawl mugs. I'll put up more photos soon.

Tell Abbey that it's fun knowing she's made one and I look forward to a visit.

Without you and all my tiki buddies stopping by there wouldn't be a show. I'm such a ham I just love doing this and reading all the messages. Thank you for thanking me!

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

It is a tradition for Dan to get all the presents on my birthday. So this time I was really smart. I told him he had to take me on a trip. The trip turned into a tiki hunt and it was successful. That meant Dan continued to get presents on my birthday. We had a blast. Here are the best photos of our trip.

My request was to go to Lake Tahoe. We have hardly ever been there and the last time was many years ago. We will change that now that we found that it was only a 2 hour drive from our home. We've been missing out.


Our first stop was at the lake for lunch.


Just outside I got to sit with Mark Twain.


Next we had a brief walk on the shoreline.


Dan's such a sport to pose for my silly photos.


We walked the main street past all the casino's. This one is Harvey's where all the old Sneaky Tikis came from.


Dan joined the Blues Brothers.


In one shopping center they had a Wyland gallery and this painting was in the window.


That evening we went to Chevy's and I got my free desert, hat and song.


The next day we drove to Sparks Nevada to a recommended Big Ceramic Store. It was huge but they refused to sell me anything. It turned out they only sell on-line, dang it.


So onto Reno for lunch at the Peppermill. Since I've shown so many restrooms before I'm sharing one again. All marble.


Next we went to antique stores and Dan found these tiki treasures. The bowl was marked $5.77. Interesting.


The big tiki was a first place trophy.


We traveled on towards Virginia City the story to be continued tomorrow. Cheers, Wendy

Happy Birthday Wendy! Looks like it was a fun one.

I have a solution to the place that only allows you to order ceramic stuff online: bring in a laptop, make your order, show them "see I just placed my order online". Then ask for them to give you what you ordered which saves you shipping, and them packaging it.

*virtual hugs and a digital mai tai*

tigertail777 thank you for the birthday wishes and shopping ideas.

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

Here's a continuation of my Birthday Trip August 2014.
We left Reno and headed back towards Lake Tahoe.
The mountains and desert were beautiful. Here we found a look out to climb up too.


The view of the Carson Valley.


We made it to Virginia City.


I've seen buckets of blood ceramics in antique stores and now we know where they come from.


In an antique store Dan found a Hawaii boat.


In a bar window they had this lei and plastic tiki goblet display.


Now we headed to Carson City. On the way the clouds opened like a cave to the sun.


In Carson City we saw this liquor store and I made a stop for photos.











Just as the highway was leading us out of Carson City I saw a wonderful site. Last October during our Sacramento Crawl we were traveling the freeway to Davis. We came upon a trailer with a Moai and a Sphinx. We were so excited to see them. Later Tiki Hula found them on-line. They were being taken to Burning Man to be set on fire. He later found a post that said they didn't burn well.

I found them again!!!


Sill on the trailer after a whole year has gone by.


The fire damage was interesting.


I'm so happy they survived.


A majestic face.



You can see how huge they are in comparison to me.


A different view.


The next morning we left to go home. We stopped in Placerville. Instead of walking the main street we went down the alley behind.
There were pretty trails up the hill.


I found a gold mine but I didn't venture inside.


ebTiki here is Dan's haul from all the stops.


The Maori statue and coasters are plastic.


I had a wonderful birthday trip and now it's time to finish the Sacramento Crawl mugs. Dan's thrilled that he once again got all the presents. He's back to tiki arraigning.

Cheers, Wendy

Thank you for posting your travel photos. I used to visit Lake Tahoe quite a bit when I had family in the area.

Check out Truckee, CA and Donner Pass/Donner Summit if you haven't been there in a while. On the way from Reno to Truckee I always liked spotting the log flumes that still carry water.
Emerald Bay at Lake Tahoe was my favorite spot for a short hike to the water and Vikingholm Castle which you can tour. The view of Fannette Island and the Tea House is very pretty.

Always love your photo trip postings.

Somewhere in my matchbook collection I have a matchbook to Bucket of Blood with the same logo as the one painted on the building interesting to see where it came from.

I am kinda surprised you didn't try to hitch up that trailer and take the lost Moai and Sphinx home... just think of how spiffy they would look in the yard and you could put plants in the middle. Hey is this further proof that tiki and Egyptian motifs go together well?

Sorry about not posting any new art I've hit another bump in the road; I have tendonitis and can barely hobble around. Been going to acupuncture therapy again like I did when the gout reared its ugly head. It's slowly working, but all in all I can't recommend tendonitis as a nice vacation spot, it's really not even worth a visit trust me.

Oh yes, almost forgot those Innsmouth mugs are KILLER!!! WOW! The dedication and devotion you have put into those really shows! And if I forgot.... congrats on getting some of your spectacular art into Tiki Pop!

Wendy, thanks once again for the photo tour- always fun to see places I've never seen- or been to (or vice versa, I suppose). Only the Cevolas can find a huge wooden Moai on a trailer in the middle of nowhere- THAT is impressive tiki hunting, no?

My brain just exploded thinking about that. BOOM!
