Story Behind the Art:
In the village of Tien Lu, the creation of baskets, lacquer ware and other handicrafts is an integral part of the community and culture, even causing a festival every year on August 21st. Domestic competition for the tourist market tends to cheapen both quality and the artisans' return from their work. This group, already with nearly 100 members, hopes to expand through Worldstock, bringing additional villagers into better-paid work in improved conditions.

I love this pedestal! The color is more of a burgundy ... a darker red then the photo shows but very much in the red family. The photo makes it look almost candy apple red, but it's not-- it's a gorgeous color though. It has a very faint black in the color too.... which makes it match my decor brilliantly. If you buy this, you won't be disappointed. It's a very lightweight, beautiful piece.Read More

How to Keep Score in Bowling
Scoring in bowling can seem complicated to a beginning bowler, but like other team sports, it really is very simple once you learn a few basic rules. In keeping score, you are adding up the number of pins knocked down in each frame, but there are special rules for getting bonus points, which can increase the score substantially. A game of bowling has 10 frames, or turns, per player. There are 300 possible points per game in bowling. Just adding up the number of pins knocked down during a game would give a maximum score of 120, so understanding how the bonus points work is the key to keeping accurate score.
