We're still not 100% yet but Frankie I were going a bit buggy having been trapped at home for so long, so we headed out to the Japanese Bookstore in Saratoga. Many of you are familiar with Kinokuniya, Jackie told me about it a few months ago. I knew that Frankie would love it, being a devoted fan of Hello Kitty and Cute. I was not disappointed.
I found the craft magazines or books, they've moved them and removed the tags that say "Craft" so I was at a decided disadvantage. Frankie walked along with me but got side-tracked by a book called Petits Appartments a Paris and I lost her. Later, I heard what I thought was a familiar voice over on the next aisle. Sure enough, around the corner came Jackie! What a happy coincidence!
Anyhoo.. we found a lot of fun stuff. Here's Frankie's photo of goodies. She got the Paris Apartment book, a date book and a little animal. She's also been busy with her little pompom garland courtesy of Kiddley, next year she'll have her own apartment, so she's got a little garland to start her Christmas decor.
I found this darling book. I have no idea the name of it, but the ISBN number is ISBN4-05-604283-7. It has a lot of nice photos of purses, notions and some CHARMING 30's Quilts. I love the photos in these books. And the use of fabric.
So my tired little elves, I hope you have a very safe and happy New Year! See you in 2007!
