Yesterday I went to Madison with the Bead Diva's of Galena- Jess, Trish and Jan. We started out at Anthology on State Street. Lucky me had won a 20$ gift certificate to this cute store. The store is the cutest thing ever. So many wonderful thing, great t-shirt, aprons, paper, books, jewelry and buttons just to mention a few. I had really thought that I was going to get a t-shirt but the books got me. I found two books that I had been wanting for a long time. A Compendium of Curiosities by Tim Holtz
and Sewing Clothes kids Love very very cute kits clothes and this book comes with the patterns too. I can't wait to sit down with these books this week.
We could have spent the day on State Street with no problem but we had other places to go lol. A nice lunch at Cosi and then on to Anthropologie This store is so inspirational we walked away with so many great ideas. Look for alot of refashioned clothes in the future. Then on to the Madison Bead Show Just being around all of those beads and finished jewelry made me want to design! Saw some old friends but was sad that some of the vendors we usually see where no there. After the bead show we had dinner at P.F. Changs, they have a gluten free menu. So yummy! Archivers was our last stop. I picked up a cool new tool for a new line I am going to be putting together. Got our Starbucks for the ride home and said good bye to Madison.
