I am sitting at the worktable in ornamentea chilling to sounds of Edie Brickell. it's cool inside the shop. Buzzing with bead shoppers. I just finished shopping for some beads. Last night's book signing was fun. There was an awesome turnout and Erin's Make and Take was full for 2 hours. we went out after and enjoyed some food and peach sangria (love) at The Raleigh Times bar. Good times!
I would seriously be in big trouble if I lived near this bead shop. It's just such a fun place to hang out!
Did I mention the beads? Da Beads is here having a trunk show and I picked up some cool and unique glass and copper strands.
I also got a few things for my gift exchange with Kathleen Klik. We both are participating in the Oh Hello blog gift exchange. I got Kathleen's gift on Thursday and I can't wait to show you what I got from her and what I bought for her. I will post about this next week.
