I've been home working like a busy bee with book edits but took a quick jaunt to downtown LA to pick up a few supplies...there are some fun projects on the horizon and I was missing a few key ingredients! I parked on one of those rooftop structures and made my way to the elevator. This is what I saw when it opened.
I did a double take and questioned getting on it because I thought it was going to kidnap me, but then a mother and daughter got on too. I figured if the elevator kidnaps me, it'll kidnap all of us. We luckily survived the one story ride. And stairs...nowhere to be found.
I was in bead, bauble, and button heaven!!
I grabbed some thread (colors I had run out of and needed), replacement zippers, elastic, and fabric!
I needed to grab more fabric for curtains (I'm finally curtain-ing my apartment!!) and totally scored at Michael Levine. (I went to their pay-by-the-pound area as well and found a few keepers!)
A quick and successful trip was had before it was back to the books...literally.
I bought some of those buttons above as well as fun floral stud earrings and a sewing kit to give away today.
Because there were so many fun earring colors, I just couldn't go with that gold pair alone. I snagged a few more summery options as well to make this a goodie day where eight people will win (1 earring/button/kit winner, 7 stud winners). I'm a sucker for stud earrings and couldn't resist. My green tomato pin cushion made the perfect grassy looking display!
To win, leave a comment below of your #1 & #2 fave summery color options - magenta, mauve, gold, copper, turquoise, and mint are what you've got! I want you to hopefully get your choice if you end up one of the multiple, random, lucky winners! Winners will be chosen on Monday, 5/21!
