Taking a break!

Whew! There's still lots to do before we leave next week, but sometimes you just have to get out for a bit.
This morning Pam and I headed for Daly City to the super awesome Daiso store.
I was determined to be brave and not grab a shopping basket--if I couldn't carry it in my hands, it would have to stay on the shelf. Even though pretty much everything is $1.50, when you get enough useless goodies, the total at the register can be rather shocking.
Anyway, would you like to see some of the things I found??

Check out these clothespins!

And this is TAPE!! Beautiful, rose covered TAPE!! Who knows how well it sticks...who cares?

Speaking of tape, how adorable are these little tape dispensers? I'm a sucker for tiny things like that. I love the "OK" stamp...I'll have to find out what the one in the middle says. Maybe I can use it.

Here's an adorable Cath Kidston-esque paper lantern. Couldn't pass that up.

Finally, when you go to Daiso, be sure to have some quarters for the Hello Kitty vending machine!

P.S. Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek at my new patterns featuring the newest Lecien fabrics.

OH MY! I had to look up Daiso on wikipedia. They only have stores in the bay area and in Washington state. It looks like it might be worth a trip across the country to browse through one. Wow!

I'm so jealous of you girls. I really want to go to Daiso :( I'm also sad that I won't see either of you next week...

Oh i definately caught the sneak peak. Yes, I'm a freak for Japanese goods but the quilts caught my eyes first. The patterns and fabrics look lovely. You'll be a hit at Market. And now . . . I've got to find those clothespins!!!!

GASP. Love the goodies. Love them even more with your beautiful quilts behind them. I gasped as I clicked on each photo.

Dying over the Cath Kidston-esque paper lantern! I'm soooooooooooooooooo doing the 5 r/t to go my Daiso. Though I'd much rather be at Daiso with you and Pam... and in Newark!

Happy yesterday, E!

I love Daiso stores...there are a couple in Seatlle that I hit when I go up there. I love the rose covered tape. I am always a sucker for their cupcake papers and such. Great shop!

Oh those little projects are wonderful. Can you just open them up so I can get a better look? That Lecien knows what they are doing and so do you!
