How many of you love Christmas shopping? What about just giving gifts to people who make you a better you? Anyone brave enough(or crazy enough) to hit Black Friday this year? Anyone still have shopping to do? yes and yes and a big YES!
Last year was my first ever Black Friday experience and I decided to make an adventure of it without expectations of finding anything, just spreading some joy & to simply see what all the fuss was about. From 10:30pm to 5am I was all over Austin and even shot over to the Outlet Malls in San Marcos ...and had the time of my life--all alone! This year I attended A Christmas Affair (and one to remember that's for sure)
in blogging some really cool stuff so if I've crossed you path and you came expecting to see pictures of you, a story we share or your cool shop then check back again soon..... Here I go with this shopping adventure:
|I love the ginormous Christmas tree and the way they sectioned off places to eat and relax|
|Pandora de Balthazar: European Luxury bedding...oh yes please!|
|Next I found Levity by Anna Christine|
This woman is remarkable in every way! The pieces she creates are absolutely
show stoppers! These should be on the runway somewhere! I hope to one
day have her accessories on the models in my my next show!
|Hats, scarves, those feather collars and everything in between...they even have Goody Goody slippers!!!|
|Erin's Earrings had a fine display on a prime corner . The necklace length and delicate|
feel I'm loving right now so this place made it to the top 5.
Sadly, the website looks suspended and I think she only sells at shows like this. Too bad I was ONLY
Christmas shopping on this outting...I wanted that necklace:)
|her prices were extremely reasonable. I think this necklace was $24....and long! gorgeous!|
|This guy Terry Williams made these gigantic copper works of art which I will be adding to my|
collection one day...this is another thing I'm certain of...although the photo does it NO justice.
|check Terry out at TK Imports where you'll find some of his copper artistry|
|anyplace that adds chandeliers is my kind of event!|
|I saved the best for last...at least for me. This lady, Tamra Novak has such a unique gift. A gift in which she gives all the credit to God....my kinda gal! She told me she’s always collected vintage items with a special attraction to jewelry and one day she sat down at her kitchen table & told God to help her figure out what to do with it all (my paraphrase).|
I admire her eye...the way she pairs unlikely items without compromising the antique pieces for value sake. Each item is a one of a kind special creation with a unique story all its own.
|very reasonable prices! I can't imagine trying to place a price on something like this...I see it for $144!!!|
This woman, just like Anna, needs to be featured on some famous movie star while walking down the red carpet. When I’m famous I must be sure to give the lime-light to artists such as these:) wink wink
|Isn't she a doll? I took a picture of the two of us but I looked too terrible to share with you:) |
A whole day of shopping sure does a number to my face & hair!!!!
|not only large statement pieces but check out her dainty line...perfectly feminine!|
Make sure to visit Tamra Novak at A Touch of Vintage!!!!
Also some Christmas Decor pictures and ideas (only about a month late already).
Love n Christmas Hugs....with a big candy cane kiss for ya!
