This past Tuesday I went down to San Diego to hang out with my Scrapbook Royalty friends. After lunch we went to these cool little shops in Solano Beach (near Del mar). There were these giant stores with all of these little booths in them, like mini boutiques. They had all different kinds of goodies but the booths I liked best were in a shop called SoLo. Melanie took some great pics of the fun we had (and of the inspiration too!):

Cool Vintage Stuff–sorry for the sideways pic! LOL

The colors in this booth were awesome and bright! Loved these felt bird shaped pic frames:

This sock puppet was too stinkin' cute–I should have bought it since it was only $6–guess I gotta go back to SD!

Elena bought this cutie:

A CUTE sock piglet!!

I liked the way these birds were pieced together–just some paper lacquered onto wood..looks like a home decor project might be an in order…

Katie really wanted this sock monkey–I like that they weren't the traditional colors of sock monkeys though this girlie one seems to have a 5 o'clock shadow…still cute tho! LOL

Some “Ugly” monsters:

This is like an 18″ tall felt owl pillow–too fun!!!

Some more gorgeous embroidered felt pillows:

Aren't these birdies to die for??!

Soooo shabby chic and over the top!

An Easter card:

Isn't this like the cutest little duck ever!?!?

A cool necklace and pin (that's me in the background there).

Katie wearing some fun shades:

Mel and E:

Hope you feel inspired!! It's time to create!
