|Take a little walk with me around San Francisco.|
|Love these old Asian tins, the red and gold, the lovely graphics.|
Yes, I have collected quite a few of them.
Happily, the new ones are very nice too and not expensive.
|Shall we buy a Chinese newspaper? Great for mailart projects or wrapping presents.|
|And this is the Golden Fire Hydrant celebrated every April for being the one that saved my neighborhood in the 1906 earthquake.|
It is repainted gold and decorated with flowers every year.
|The lovely light in an artist's studio.|
|And, of course we have to stop for an inspiring lunch too.|
I am always inspired by food.
|Some rubber stamps for sale.|
|A shrine in a joss shop.|
I am a real sucker for these.
|A lovely old paint box.|
|A very San Francisco sight, a menu hanging on a gate.|
Take one to make an envelope with.
Hope you enjoyed the walk and lunch.
If you enjoyed this, let me know, and I will show you more
from my travels around town.
