Shanghai - New York - home!

I'm back home in California now. I've been living out of a suitcase since Quilt Market, the end of Oct. Don't get me wrong I love the travel and it's all been invaluable. But as we all know; "there's no place like home". Sorting through and catching up after the holidays. I'll be bringing you all up to date albeit belatedly .

Here's some pics of my time in Shanghai.......amazing city...........
shopping in "Old Town"
Had a foot massage (heavenly) and an"ear massage" (wonderful). While I was on the massage table for the ear massage an ear candle was shown to me and the next thing I knew there I was lying on my side with a lit candle in my ear! Had to Google it later to find out what that was about! No harm done, but I don't think I 'll be doing that again!
