Okay, so Project Runway was a little better last week. I enjoy the unconventional challenges, I'm always amazed at what you can sew!
"A garment out of dog food bags... if that's out of the box, then put me back in!"
"I don't want to be the dog on the catwalk."
There were so many great opportunities for great puns on this challenge. He really took advantage of that. Here's his outfit.
And now, onto Shop Hopping and The Queen Bee Market!
Saturday my Mom and I headed down to San Diego to hop around the stores down there and to attend the Queen Bee Market. We had a great day, the Queen Bee Market was great, the booths were chalk full of fun, hand crafted goodness. I got to see The Pleated Poppy, Allora Handmade, Little Wellies and so much more! These ladies are all amazingly talented and I've been following their blogs since I realized what a blog was! Here's some pictures from the Market.
I love the pillows too, I've been wanting to make pillows for some time now, even had a similar one to the log cabin type in my head.
I almost got my Sister-in-law an Allora Handmade necklace, but had already started on her present (you'll see it later this week) so I passed on it, but I can guarantee that someone I know will get one for Christmas!
I think my favorite item at the Market was the super cute, super fun, children's shirts from "Oh, Fiddlesticks". She had the onsies with a vintage picture of a cow + boy for cowboy, or a lime + light for limelight. The vintage pictures plus the cute clues... awesome and so creative and different!
We sandwiched the QBM between shop hopping, we hit up 9 stores total that day and my favorite was Paper Tales. I loved the shop, it's in Point Loma and I enjoyed the friendly staff, the samples and the shabby chic, beach cottage feel. Take a look at some samples that I found in the store that have definitely inspired me!
I'll be back tomorrow with some Lifestyle Crafts samples!
