This feels like it has been a very long summer. Mostly spent indoors, fixing this and that. My friend finally dragged me to check out a artsy kind of store filled with all kinds of odds and ends ~ including a RICKSHAW outside their door! One thing that really caught my attention inside the store was a basket made from sea kelp pods! Yep, you read it right! And so below I have a sketch of the inside of the store and a partial view of the "kelp basket" . Funny thing was the shop person didn't know what the basket was made of~my friend had to research it! However, this short trip and sketch session turned out to be quite a fun day! Sometimes, you just have to let go, aimlessly and you will find the most interesting things amongst the ordinary!!
