Women of Wool

The official name of the store is Twisted Ewe, on Chinden Blvd. The sign carries the Women of Wool slogan because for years, the sign said Woman of Steel. It was a metal arts gallery.

Old Boise Alley to be Remodeled

 These will soon be categorized as "before" photos. This alley in Old Boise between Humpin' Hannah's, Brickyard and Bardenay is getting a makeover this summer.
The asphalt will be replaced with stamped concrete and the dumpters hidden from view 
There are some interesting doors that line the alley. I hope they keep their character.

Sunset South of Boise

So far south of Boise, this might be in the town of Kuna. Clear, cold, brittle winter evening.Most Boise views focus north, on the mountains. Desert is to the south.

Japanese New Year Celebration in Boise

Japanese New Year was celebrated last weekend at the Dick Eardley Senior Center. Pounding the mochi is a traditional activity. Messy and really fun!

 Happy New Year from Japanese school students.

This is kadomatsu, a traditional bamboo and pine arrangement that is supposed to attract good luck for the year.
The celebration included music, readings and a giant potluck. I have no idea what this soup was, except to say that it was delicious.

Boise Grows Up

Boise has a bodega across from City Hall now. Bodegas feel like a big city "thing." This is the first of two planned for downtown. There is also one on the Bench. While these don't look like the ones I've seen in New York City, they are a welcome addition. Now, they just need to get resident cats :)
