Thanks Mama!

Mom and I had a busy day in Dallas yesterday. The whole day was planned around my need to go to the Rock Barrell for gemstones and our desire to go to a few fabric stores while there. We made about a million stops and were exhausted by the end of the day, I just can't shop like I used to! We got to check out City Craft, finally, a newish fabric store off Lover's Lane. The store was super cute, and though small, has a wonderful selection of designer fabrics. Though I was tempted by many, I didn't take any fabrics home with me. We also stopped at a couple of the fabric outlets on Harry Hines, but those were a bust for me this trip. Our last stop was Hancocks in Lewisville where I got a beautiful piece of cotton ikat on clearance, yay!

The beautiful tulips were on major sale at Whole Foods, so mom got them and shared. I love how they look in my favorite flea market vase.

I switched the kangaroo paw to a smaller vase along with some Poppy seed pods that I picked at mom's. I'm hoping to dry them and save the seeds.
