fun by the ton

wow! 24 hours in san fran and it’s already been a whirlwind. i’m going thru pix and had to give props to our very first stop. it was a ‘roaring 20s, sand by the ton’ party hosted by big art studios, an incredible group of artists (our friend is one of them), who create enormous works of art from discarded scrap metal. the pieces are somehow ethereal and so delicate despite their size, rust and components. it was truly awe inspiring! i love california, you never know what you’re going to discover in some airport hangar or what looks like an abandoned warehouse.

these goddesses must have been 100 feet tall. the chains as hair was so creative! anyway  it’s getting late and i’m starting to burn out. it was an early morning (5am)! with my girl lynn from paris hotel boutique at the alameda flea and getting in at 4am yesterday is starting to kick in so i’ll say goodnight for tonight! enjoy the rest of the weekend!

    I have been looking for a new chair. I think the one shown here may be a little to big for my apartment though! lol!

    I am in awe and slightly terrified….

    Have a good trip, Sadie at Flea xx
