When I said a couple of photos from Liberty Local, I meant just that: two. Yikes! I thought I had taken more, but must have gotten distracted by all the goodies around me. Above is a look at my display and then, below, just one of the many amazing origami designs by my table neighbor, Beth Johnson.
These penguins are from her web site and I strongly encourage you to go visit for more. Beth also has diagrams to learn from and all kinds of useful info. She was super fun to be next to and I enjoyed listening to her talk about her work so passionately.
I made several purchases at the show—I couldn't help myself! I've admired Sarah Place-Minshall's sewn goods for some time now. (She makes them under the name Hip to Piece Squares. Cute, right?!) I hadn't bought anything before because I literally want it all and can never decide. She has such spot on taste in color and fabric design. I've especially wanted a pair of her kimono house shoes and finally got some—and the super cute pencil case— both seen above. I was also extremely tempted by this, this and this. Someone go buy them before I do—please!
I also picked up one of these awesome "Hell Yeah" tees for the boy. I seriously wanted one for myself, too and am regretting not snagging two. They are made by Alisa Bobzien who has a great sense of humor and style. I was also tempted by her sweet Michigan constellation tee:
What did you get up to last weekend? It was great to see those of you who could stop by the show and I look forward to seeing the rest of you somewhere's soon!
