The big adventure to Tampa on Sat was wonderful!
After walking around Anthropologie and looking at everything twice I finally decided to use my Sister's gift cards on this bag.
The embroidery is great and it has a little bling that isn't too trailer park. They only had about 4 different bags; not a great selection compared to the last time I was there. The whole store was less filled and the displays were all different and I only took photos of the front windows.
OK, to explain my love for this pillow- Not only do I love the combination of graphics and embroidery but it reminds me of the Badger in The Fantastic Mr Fox and Bill Murray voiced the badger and I have a small thing for Bill Murray, especially his performances in Groundhog Day, Ghostbusters, CaddyShack, Lost in Translation and Zombieland.
The most expensive tea towel I have ever owned.
I have been wanting one of these red cap mushroom plates and finally bought one. I think I am totally spoiled rotten, don't you? Yeah, I know. I have lots of stuff and now I have even more stuff! Imagine if you had every possession you had ever owned in your life- NOW that would be a whole lotta stuff! I do purge on occasion and have minimized it to only things I truly love left in my house.
I also bought some raw fleece to wash from eBay and some new fabric from Ikea.
I had to have this because it looks like Godzilla is attacking Swedish Asian chicks! I wish I knew the story behind that fabric!
I also bought a sheepskin to put on my chair when I spin.
So I had a wonderful birthday and Valentine's Day. We saw The Wolfman yesterday, which I totally enjoyed except for a few editing blunders it was pretty good. I think I will always love the original more but I can see this becoming a cult classic, maybe the extended director's cut will be better when it comes out on DVD. The costumes, sets and actors were all fine and there were scary moments that made you jump. The Wolf was pretty fierce- he was ripping off heads and disemboweling folks right and left- much nastier than the original and of course Sir Anthony Hopkins plays malicious and evil like no one else. I don't want to spoil it for anyone so I'll quit there.
This week is another busy one and I will be volunteering at the Sewing Expo on Thurs, Fri & Sat in Tampa. I hope to get started on my row for the Row 10 Group I'm in over at Flickr. Feb is my month and a few of the quilters have already started my rows which were all about red cap mushrooms, gnomes, snails and mushroom houses.
This is by Lucinda:
I am blessed to have such talented friends! The Group is about making a quilt row for someone each month and there are 10 people in the group so there will be 10 rows. I can't wait to see all the finished quilts after this year is over- it will be amazing! Like a virtual Quilting Bee! If only my Grandmother was alive to see the quilts and quilts shops out there now. She would be so happy.
Anyway, I hope you all had a happy weekend and thanks for dropping by.
Gotta get busy!
