if it's 'flamingo friday', it must be saturday~~

Bird is....

Ms. Ogata is a Japanese glass works artist and her stuff is incredible.  Mona and the girls over at GafferGlassUSA pointed me in her direction and I'm so glad they did.  Her website is in Japanese, but, you can see pictures of some of her work....great pieces.  I'd love to go to an exhibition!
I'm pretty sure that this particular piece was not meant to be a flamingo....that's okay...I still like it...a lot!!

**************
We are having a 3-day weekend as Monday is umi no hi  海の日, known as 'Ocean Day' or 'Sea Day' or 'Marine Day',  a day of gratitude for the blessings of the oceans.

Not sure what we will do...today was a busy day so we might join the gazillions of others and take a drive to  the beach.  The rainy season is unofficially over, so that means it's getting hotter (though still humid) but, not feeling as humid as it has (more on the rainy season possibly tomorrow!)...perfect weather for grabbing some picnic foods and heading to the beach for an afternoon of fun and sun!


Have a great weekend, everyone...
see you tomorrow...or the next...maybe.

Ah, Ocean Day. A day of gratitude for the blessings of the oceans. I like that. Now that the Gulf of Mexico is an oil disaster, maybe we could get a few congress persons to vote this in as a national holiday.
