Handmade San Francisco

Specifically handmade and upcycled.

I am up to my ears in Christmas knit patterns, so I thought I’d give you something unknitty today.

These are the painted ladies of Alamo Square, or at least models of them made from cereal boxes. This comes from an incredible exhibition at the Conservatory of Flowers in Golden Gate Park. It’s just one of the scale models of SF landmarks made by the Golden Gate Express Garden Railway. All the models are made using things people would normally throw away, including a Transamerica Tower made with computer keyboard keys and a Golden Gate Bridge strung from red plastic beads. It’s all so detailed. And the trains and cable cars running between the models kept my little boy very happy all morning. It’s there until April next year, if you live nearby, go and see it.
