Saturday was Big Saturday, an annual carnival, at my children's school. I worked a few booths and checked in on my daughters jewelry sale. She has sold jewelry for a few years. Her business name is Twinkle. She wants to create an online store. Impressive for an 11 year old I think. These Nepalese beaded bracelets were the biggest sellers by far. I have been wearing an armload of them ever since they came in and get tons of complements. I love that they are Fair Trade and support women in the region.
Saturday night dinner with friends was at one of my favorite spots, Toscana. The food is divine. I had rigatoni buttera. It was so good. Pasta is so taboo these days but, once in a while it is a delicious indulgence.
The dragon bracelet and ring by Roberto Coin have been added to my permanent wish list. It is the year of the dragon after all.
A wonderful client and friend of mine has a linen buying hobby. She scours Ebay and the internet for vintage linen embroidered and appliquéd cocktail napkins. Her collection is quite envious. I have started a little collection myself this week. These elephants buy Gerbrend are my first purchase. How precious!
I found these hand embroidered cuties on ETSY.
I could not resist these either.
Naughty vintage cocktail napkins with padded bumps. Adorable!
I discovered The Saguaro in Palm Springs. How fun is this colorful exterior? I really want to visit this town of amazing mid century architecture.
My little retail therapy for the weekend was this cute long skirt for flat sandals, bright t shirts and an arm full of bangles.
And this casual dress from Zara
and this from Zara too. Do I have a shopping problem?
I am busy today compiling my shopping list for High Point Market. Headed there early tomorrow.
A busy week is ahead.
