A Lot-a Yukata, Etc
This past weekend my friend Patricia had a trunk show at Fabric Crush featuring her vast collection on vintage Japanese fabrics. It just so happens that the house I grew up in, where my parents still reside, is three blocks away.
Saturday afternoon I collected my mom and dragged her out to the show. I knew I was going to at least buy a yard or two, but then something happened... We were talking about the nautical decor in my upcoming wedding (which I know I have promised will not take over my blog) when Patricia got out the bolt of fabric you see her holding in the above photo and oops! I bought the whole bolt. She gave me an amazing deal on it because of some areas she saw as flaws in the fabric (whereas I will call them character and not think about it again).
I'm so excited! Blue and white stripes? Check. Artsy waves? Check. Helloooo table decor!
Afterward, we wandered over to Fainting Goat on 45th for gelato. It's the best gelato I've ever had, and I'm not exaggerating. If you're thinking, "well I went to Italy, and the stuff I had there..." stop right there. Yep, it's better than that. I got dark chocolate and salted caramel. My mom got pistachio and hazelnut. It was all heavenly. I was especially impressed with the pistachio, which does not taste like that disappointing spumoni pistachio, but rather the real nut. Amazing. Check it:
Adorable logo and delicious product. I am in love.
