Garment Barbie District!

Happy weekend ladies!!

The last post on my LA trip.

On Monday , Teresa and Kim, I went downtown to the Garmet district!

is all i can say.

store after store of trims, fabrics,sequins, buttons, bling, beads, crystals,buckles, and baubles.

Could you just die!!!

It was overwhelming!!!

I managed to find 2 super cute blinged out Barbie's.
They were part of a window display!!!
Just enought time for a quick bite.
Then off to the airport for me and T.
we didn't get home till 12:30.
we were dog tired for a few days.
But so worth it!!!
I love you Cali girls!!!

Have a Super Fantastic weekend!!!

were in for a Winter Snow Blizzard!!!
im SO ready for warm weather!!!

OMG! Was your head ready to explode?? I think I would have just followed behind Teresa and bought whatever she did!

What a fabulous shop!!! I think I would have gotten physically sick in there as I often do in antique shops because I am so overwhelmed, lol! SO many beautiful things to choose from there!!

LOL... I love it down there I think you need a week to go into all the stores. How long where you visiting CA?? I just missed seeing you @ the Barn sale :( I had my both there on Fri & Sat!

I am so glad you had a blast!

Oh I know isn't the garment district just a blast!! Us Californians tend to take the beautiful weather and those fun spots for granted!! Looks like you had fun :)
You inspired Saturdayfinds and I to take a trip down there ourselves to get some crafting goodies!!

If you could get frequent flier miles for all your trips AND all your pictures of Barbie- you could go ANYWHERE, FOR FREE.

Loved catching up on your adventures!!

Scrappy, you sure did a lot the last time you were in California, and I sure hope the weather behaved. Overall I would say you had a BLAST!
Hugs & Kisses, Diane
