Stimulating the Local Economy

Good morning! How goes it this fine Tuesday? I'm enjoying a cup of coffee inside today, the weather has turned brisk the past few days so my swing time has been limited. I guess this way I get more done.
ANYWAY. Before I go on and on about the weather.. thought I'd share the loot I scored last week from Kinokuniya. I don't see as many people posting about Japanese craft books anymore, are we over them? Maybe we're all cutting back on expenditures? I know it's been a while since I was there, and I had a hard time making decisions. I knew the flower book would be awesome, I'm pretty sure Amy has that. Here's a link to the flower book, the block book and the Cotton Time, which I thought was very good. (SuperBuzzy has everything but the CK book, this is my fav ebay seller for Japanese craftbooks.)
Once I found this Cath Kidston Mook I knew I had to bring Elizabeth back with me...she's a CK maniac. If I had a CK bag (with matching mirror and tissue holder) and didn't tell her about it I'd be in big trouble. Here's a link to one on ebay.
Check this out! It's a little clearance calendar. And can you just die over the little Choose Me! sticker? Because OMG I totally did.

Anyway that's it for my shameless consumption last week. This week is full of all kinds of wonderful activities, including spending tomorrow with Frankie and having lunch with Elizabeth and Nireko on Thursday! Ok, see you later aligators! xo

Uhmm...I've been on a "push the button" roll lately with online quilt stores. I've got to start saving up for HZ's fabric.

Well I'm not over them. They certainly have not jumped the shark for me. I just got 3 in the mail. I haven't shown them just because I'm hoarding them for now. Weird, I know.

I am so not over Japanese books, fabric, toys...etc. You are such an enabler!

All I know is it's a good thing we have to drive a bit to get there. Or I'd be living in a box under the freeway. I'd have the CUTEST box, of course.

I'll never be over them! Never. When I was at my Kinokuniya last week... there were a few of us jockeying for position at the craft/sewing section. Yea... there was a crowd at the section. Ok, there were 3 of us... but I've never had to share the section before.

I love your loot, and love the "Choose me!" sticker too.

Have fun at both your lunches. Hi Frankie, Nireko, E and Emil!

I still love Japanese craft books. :) They just make me happy. If only they weren't written in Japanese!

I am not over them either, but I have NO access to them unless it's the internet and they are sort of pricey to buy sight unseen. I do always pick them when we go to Chicago though.
