More goodies




I wanted to show you a few more treasures. On our trip we picked up 2 gourds that are carved out by the local people. They are very intricate and tell a story of their country. One is of the amazon jungle. It's full of animals and vegetation. The other one is of the people and everything that Peru offers. I always try to pick up the local art wherever i go.


The vase i picked up at the Iowa city art festival last weekend. I love the lizard. This fellow had some great pieces. His business name is "tin hill pottery" Kristin A. Hill of Davenport, Iowa.
