We quickly ate up my cookies. John's efforts are producing something much more lasting. This is an intarsia wreath he made--assembled, then finished. It hangs on our house in the covered patio area.
Saturday we drove to the West Valley to look around the Litchfield Park art and craft show. There were some pretty items, but nothing really inspiring. I didn't take many photos because many artists are afraid someone will copy their ideas. These umbrellas might be of interest to the people in our resort who have sun decks.
There were t-shirts with messages and beautiful images in numerous booths.
And, of course, every style of jewelry you could ever want, assuming you are in the market for jewelry. I wasn't. There were very few booths with woodworking projects, something we would have been very interested it.
We were really big spenders. We bought and shared this boat of french fries!
Today we were off to the Mesa library to look at the Grand Canyon State Model Railroad display. I liked the smoke coming out of the smokestack in this section.
Lots of freight trains with coal and shipping containers. We see lots of these containers as we travel and we were very familiar with coal trains when we lived in Castle Rock.
Notice the two old black and white police cars in the city scene here.
There was a train station about this size in Castle Rock. It was moved and it now a museum.
We decided some of the model railroad enthusiasts name businesses or towns after their wives who let them spend all that time and money on their hobby.
