back from S. Paulo, where it was colder that we had anticipated (summer in Brasil is definitely not the same as summer in S. Paulo) and busier than ever. Besides work, I had just enough time for catching up with friends and family, and also some shopping.
I met Glá and R. for dinner at Piola, a really nice pizzeria in the Vila Boim area. We had agreed yet another swap, so I brought home these wonderful soft toys. Just adorable, aren't they ? This cat is one of my favorites ever (I'll show you what I made her on my next post)
S. Paulo is a fantastic place for eating out, we had great meals everywhere we went, but I must single out this bar where we had the most delicious picanha and mandioca frita: Bar do Juarez. Definitely a place to go back.
On crafty shopping, I went back to the crazy 25 de Março where I was most disappointed to find out that the usual fabrics shop is now closed on Saturdays. I went into Niazi Chofi instead (a more popular place, usually crowded like mad, like all the shops in this area) and ended up getting this gorgeous selection.
Some more shopping:
* hello kitty indulgence * havaianas *
* origami paper (from Tenman-Ya) * lovely trims (25 de Março) *
