A few trips to Homer....and a Super long post!

 I have taken pictures on every trip to Homer and have wanted to share
them with you forever.....so here go's 4 trips worth!
It all started this Fall....
 I went through the local art galleries
look at this beadwork!
 I loved this artist work and his story was amazing, 
I'll share it with you another time.
 this artist made me think of Nadine.
over at Wolfenbell

 ever feel like this....
 of course I'm always drawn to the pretties....

 this next artist 
 how sweet are these faces.....
 Then from those sweet faces to these.....
 creatures from bizarro world   
(they are really cool, I must admit)
 Look at this rack of vintage 
of course I thought of Kitty and Dee
 Tip no. 1 remember sunglasses.....Cory came to the rescue.
 These are from my trip down this past Saturday....
 such a cold but pretty day...

 This barge looked so close....

 These are pictures from the spit.

and this little water hole is quite the stop
in the summer. 
well it use to be ,now the Deadliest Catch gift shop 
has stolen a little of its thunder....
I hope you enjoyed your little visit through one of 
my favorite little towns in Alaska.


  1. I am & always have been "in-love" with Alaska!! We hope someday after DH has retired to visit..... I could so live there. Hey, maybe retire there?? Nope, DH would never go for all the cold. He can barely stand it here in the northeast!! LOL!!
    Beautiful... Beautiful Pictures!!
    Happy Thanksgiving!!

  2. looks like a fun trip. love the pretties, too, especially that little cornflower blue teacup and saucer. my niece spent a year in sitka, with the jesuit volunteer corp after graduating. she really enjoyed it.

  15. Wauw…a Deathly Catch gift shop?! My boys would love it :O)
    I love your pictures, Heidi,..it's so different with living here in this flat country where the dikes are the highest mountians the Dutchables have *smile*
    Have a nice week!

  16. Wow what a gorgeous post, thanks for sharing some of your homeland with us. I have to say some of that art is a little freaky that picture of the lady with all those hands scares me a little, but then i am easy to scare. Loving that rack of vintage ;-)) I would love a look through that. And with you the cups and saucers are so very pretty my eye would be drawn to those to. Enjoy the rest of your week, dee xx

  17. I REALLY like your sunglasses, haha :) this looks like it was an awesome exhibit!!

  18. I was wondering if it would be okay if i borrowed some of your pictures and wrote about your blog on my blog? I really like your blog, and would love to tell about about it:-)

  19. Thanks for sharing your trip to Homer, looks like an interesting place, the pug painting is very cute. Happy thanksgiving! Tam x

  20. Wow it looks like you had a great time! I love all the artwork and all the gorgeous China!! I love your title border by the way! XxxX http://thesecondhandrose.blogspot.com/

  21. yes, yes, yes! i have enjoyed this!!!
    i can keep on dreaming about one day coming to see nature for myself. and homer. oh, it looks right up my street!!
    i LOVE it you mention my humble existence, being reminded of me while observing artists.
    what IS this though? and who MADE this? i'd sure like to find out the psychology behind the four hands and the disproportionate face? ;)))
    amazing heidi.
    so, this is an art gallery in homer, hlding local art? i say WOW!
