there is a place in Tempe called SAS fabric by the pound, and i am sure that many of you in this Arizona area have heard of it or been there. it is amazing. it's a large-ish store, filled to the brim with all manner of eclectic fabrics, notions, trims, buttons, patches, beads...on and on and on. just the kind of store i like, also it's sort of organized but it's got a feel to it where if i go in i know i'll have to look a bit to find what i need which i actually like, sort of like a treasure hunt. so i went today with the kiddos specifically to find some pom pom trim in an apple green color for the baby's bedding. and i found some!!!! so awesome. it was expensive so i didn't get as much as i had originally planned but they also had this twill tape/kind of trim in green and blue (perfect colors, since that's the "theme" i am using; green and blue) and it was only $.15 a yard! that's fifteen cents a YARD people...amazing. i think i ended up getting 15 yards and it costed next to nothing! i am so happy! and every time we go the kids have to get a feather...funny but ethan likes to tickle avery with it so i get him one:) today they also wanted to get a minature baby and very tiny bottle to feed the very tiny baby. we are a little bit obsessed with baby everything around here:) but if you ever need small babies or baby bottles, tiny rattles or tiny binkies for a baby shower, they have tons and they are only $.60 for 12! that is a bargain compared to how much they are at the regular stores! it is a bit far out to go but for novel things like that or ribbon/trims like i needed to get, it's awesome!
