We're driving out to the high desert tonight to attend the 5th Annual Morongo Basin Studio Art Tours. We'll be heading to the east end of the basin to visit studios in Joshua Tree, 29 Palms and Wonder Valley. We have a few friends that live full-time out in the desert too, so this is a good chance to visit. There's one studio in particular that I'm interested in seeing in person....Shari Elf's website is intriguing. She makes art from recycled objects. She sings and records music. She's the curator of the World Famous Crochet Museum! If I can find my crocheted taco, buried under the piles of yarn at my house, I may just donate it to Shari's Crochet Museum.

My favorite art piece of Shari's is above. When I was in high school, Cher was my idol. My hair was long like her's, I died it jet-black and then ironed it so it would be Indian-straight, like her's. To me, she's a fashion and recording industry star. Talk about re-inventing yourself? Forget about Madonna, Cher is Queen. Apparently, Shari Elf must feel the same way about Cher's style and vast wealth of knowledge and talent.
Have a marvelous weekend!
