Okay.. so Yesterday I had a perfect day.
I met with a lady about a custom necklace ( pretty lovely way to start the day)..
Then I treated myself to a GorillaPod on my way to have a full throttle Jam Packed Adventure with the dazzling and wickedly funny Sonya of Knit Sonya and her son, Cyrus.
We met at Tail of the Yak.
I induged in Embroidered Ribbon and Japanese Fruit Beetle Shells.. What I really wanted was the stuffed Emu. While we were there we actually met Anandamayi Arnold, the lady who makes the crepe paper "surprise" gifts that you might see in the current issue of Mary Englebreit magazine this month.
Next, we went Ici ... It is just around the corner. The shop is a visual as well as a gastronomical feast.
I got a caramel and chocolate cone, Sonya got a honey lavander and our wee companion enjoyed straight up chocolate in the dish.. the ice cream was Great But The Cones Were Perfect. When Sonya asked if we could take pictures the owner said"Please just write nice things on your Blog.."
Oh jeez... are we that obvious?
But really she was so very nice, and so were the treats.
It was not a big surprise when we saw Anandamayi there as well.
Into the car and off to Stone Mountain Fabric Stone Mountain Fabric store which blew my mind in all the right ways. I loved it! I was controlling myself this time and bought stuff for a project that I have coming up...
But next time i will bring a big list and all my allowance because I fell in love about 30 times in there.
The last stop before I had to tear off for home and my darling boy was The Center for Creative Reuse. Hello? Score!
I love Berkeland..( It is in the block where one city becomes the other I think.) What could be better? Crazy bins of stuff to sift through and then Gems... absolute GEMS!!!!
And who should we run into but Anandamayi! She said, "Did you go to Poppy Fabric?" "No, Stone Mountain.." Apparently she usually goes to Stone Mountain.. But Poppy was having a big sale. ( Wha?)
Okay? that was pretty funny. I guess the creative shopping circuit was successfully completed.
Thanks Sonya! Great Day.. But now back to reality!!!
And btw: the egg class was good and kinda crazy... and mostly really fun. Very Small group which worked out perfectly.
I will be posting pictures of that tomorrow with the "Non Denominational Spring Egg and Rabbit Decor" shots from our culturally mixed cabin in the redwoods.. ( My Dear Boy Jake says he is "half Jewish- half vegetarian...")
Yup, a B'lated Happy Passover to ya! (No, Not a Fan of the Gefilte Fish. I 'm definitely more of the chocolate bunny type..)
