LOTS goin' on in the Los Angeles area this weekend. Of course, there are estate sales, craft and jewelry sales everywhere for the upcoming holidays. Most of my SnB friends are knitting and crocheting madly, trying to get hand-made gifts completed. I'm no exception. I'm working on a few secret masterpieces right now!
Saw this cup on Sheep in the City. I believe it was purchased at a Denver, Colorado Starbucks. I love it! I need one or two, or three! If you see this cup at a Starbucks in the Los Angeles area, let me know!!!! It would make a faboo holiday gift!
