first thursday

Austin has an event called first thursday (yes, with no capitals) every first Thursday of the month on South Congress aka SoCo where all the local artists and musicians get together and display their wares and talents. Oh. my. gosh. LOVE it! I found a website of a lady whose jewelry I just LOVE and I emailed her back and forth a few times this week about how she was similar to one of my favorite stores in Santa Cruz called Artisan's Gallery. She suggested a place she sells her stuff at that might be similar. Can't wait to go there! She also suggested first thursday which happened to be two days later - today. I thought Justinbustin had boy scouts tonight so we had some time to kill down south and stopped by her booth. SUCH CUTE stuff. Just as beautiful in person as on her web sites. Since I have four birthdays coming up in the next week all in the family, I killed four birds with one stone and quite an inexpensive stone at that. I usually don't get everyone gifts because frankly there's just too many but my mother-in-law's birthday is her 50th and so I got her something special because we haven't done anything else for her birthday and then picked up my sister, sister-in-law, and good friend who is also also my brother's fiancee pretty little rings. Simple and sweet. Diane, the lady who designs the jewelry, is SO fun and SO cute herself. She only designs jewelry she would wear and that she likes and I like her style! Now I know where I'll be going for birthday gifts from now on.
This is what I got for my sister and sister-in-law. So casual cute.This is what I got for my good friend who is also my brother's fiancee. I also got one for me! Yay! I can't find a picture of what I got my MIL but they are gorgeous hoops with beautiful crystals hanging from them.
