Joshua Tree, California: World Famous Crochet Museum

Poodles, kangaroos, bears, unicorns. Artist Shari Elf took an old one-hour photo booth, rebuilt it into something resembling a retro-future television set, and painted it electric lime green. The collection is Shari's, and she apparently lives next door.

Loved this! So cute and such talent. The World Famous Crochet Museum is right off the main drag, and easy access.

Next to the Art Queen of Joshua Tree is a small gate. Open the gate (It says "Enter") and follow it to the World Famous Crochet Museum! It is a small yellow/green shack, filled with cute crochet pieces. It's a great way to take in the beauty that is crochet! It is next to art galleries and what seemed to be living studios, so I'm guessing it's not polite to stop by after hours.
