I've just realized that every photo I have with Emily pretty much looks like this. She always holds the camera because she said the has the "long arm" which is true. If you ever meet Emily in real life, you'll see what I am talking about. Her left arm is about a foot longer than her right. It's simply amazing. I think it just may be the 8th wonder of the world.
Here we are in the Fashion District, downtown LA. We were both wandering around- wondering why we didn't make it over there sooner.
It's kind of overwhelming, the Fashion District- bolts & bolts of fabric, and soo much ribbon- you just don't even know where to start!
But there was LOTS of 'sparkly' stuff and a certain "Russell" should be very proud!
So Emily & I made out with some really really great fabric. We went into this place and they had all this linen fabric built up like a log cabin. We wanted to see some bolts that were wedged in the bottom and we were told we'd have to come back in a 1/2 hour so they could 'de-construct' said cabin and pull it out. So sad.. but in the end, we were able to get the fabric we wanted, sans any de-construction.
I think this is one of my most favorite purchases of the day. I love this. I thought it would make such a fantastic table cloth or tote, or who knows. The possibilities are endless. It reminds me so much of a similar tablecloth that I picked up at the Brimfield Antique/Flea Market that used to take place out in Western Massachusetts. I'm sure that those must exist somewhere out here... it's just a matter of finding it. I hear that the flea markets that happen at the Rose Bowl are to die for.
Today is the 20th and that means that Henry is 14-months old. What is this 14-month old up to? Well, he's got 14 teeth. These months are flying by. It's been a little bit of a rough week for this little guy. He climbed out of his highchair when I had my back turned and toppled head-first onto the kitchen floor, the little egg between his eyes seems like it's starting to disappear. He slipped & hit his mouth on the corner of the coffee table. We thought all was fine until his mouth started to fill with blood. I thought for sure, he knocked out one of his teeth, but he just bit the inside of his lip. Blood on the onesie- looked like he had just been in a little battle- what a tough guy! He seems like he's doing okay now. Unfortunately- until he learns to walk...I think this might be happening alot!
