It's sponsored by some of my favorite yarn shops in the city: Downtown Yarns, which I also mentioned here and Purl Soho (there's the ad for the event in the window):
I have a work thing and can't make it to the event tomorrow, so I bought a few ginormous chocolate chunk cookies on my way home, but if anyone goes let me know how it is!
From the bakery I also had some other errands to run:
I stopped by Anthropologie (love the sweet clothes, charming fabrics and dishware and the Mistral soaps, even though I just made some of my own). Hey, is anyone watching Man Shops Globe on the Sundance Channel about buyer Keith Johnson's adventures procuring product for the stores? Also got some wool for a present at Lion Brand Yarn (which I heart! as I explained here).
The bunch of ribbon is from Paper Presentation: an incredible store that I could get lost in for hours. I heard about it from awesome prop stylist Leslie Siegel. Seriously, check out her portfolio: it's amAzing! Those are also some little pink pinking shears up in the pic.
I passed Cupcake Cafe and even though I posted about Valentine-themed store windows yesterday I just have to include this since I love how happy the polar bears are with their treats.
When I finally got home my sweet friend She Crafty had sent me Making Candles & Soaps for Dummies. I've been experimenting with both lately and need some pointers, so I can't wait to dive into this book and see what I can do to improve.
She Crafty's profile pic is her adorable French bulldog, Crumpet (love her name!) One of my all-time fave movies is Best in Show and on Monday night a Frenchie named Bru won best in the non-sporting group (first time for this breed!) at the Westminster Kennel Club 2010 Dog Show. Go, Bru! and thanks again, She Crafty!
