1  Re: Traveling Little Visitor Swap Round 25 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by RaraAvis on: September 22, 2017 09:32:13 AM
Cali arrived back from whatthepuck yesterday! It looks like she had a wonderful time and got to travel to multiple locations on the east coast, which is awesome, since I have never been on the east coast before.

Here is everything, including postcards, souvenirs, scrapbook, and lots of brochures and other items from her travels.

Here is a close up of some of the souvenirs. My husband liked the tank museum patch and the little birdy painting is already up on my display shelf! The varisty is a paper hat.The jar is from Opie's Candy Store which is in Mount Airy, North Carolina the hometown of Andy Griffith and the inspiration for Mayberry. The little bottle is filled with gems from a gem show.

Here are a few pages from the scrapbook, including one with a flamethrower going off in the background!

Thanks so much for swapping whatthepuck!!!! Cheesy And thank you Wildfyre for organizing!

I added some new zippered pouches to my shop!

I probably need to go back and take individual pics to see all the details in the fabrics.

I finished some mug rugs for my shop! Can't wait for this to start!

Also, I have some Halloween fabric in my stash. Does anyone need some basic trick-or-treat bags, or Halloween buntings?

We flew to San Diego for another for vacation last week. I was hoping it was going to be sunny and warm, but it was pretty mild and overcast the whole time. We still had fun!

We took Betty on a Bay Cruise on Saturday.

The cruise left out of Tiburon, CA and we went past a lot of fancy houses that have their own private docks.

Then we went under the Golden Gate Bridge!

Then around Alcatraz!
The sign in the picture warns about concealing escaped prisoners.
