On Friday, after a seriously long day at work, Tsuki of LittleGrayFox and I headed into the city to visit Schmancy's annual plush extravaganza Plush You.

Plush artists from all over the globe displayed their phenomenal creations, covering every square inch of the shop.

I have my eye on that plaid kitty...

Cheer up, Sooks.  It's Schmany -- not the dentist!

So much creativity in such a tiny space!

If I were Rockefeller, you'd be MINE!

If you find yourself in Seattle one day, you MUST stop in and visit Schmancy.  I don't think there is a greater concentration of cuteness per square foot anywhere else in the city.

{ how was your weekend? }

Pssst!  Ivars is the greatest rainy weekend treat EVER!

    cute!! if you get that plaid cat i'm totally sneaking in your house and stealing it. but i'll blame it on someone else. like...my cat. he's homosexual so it only makes sense to want a plaid cat, right?

    oh lovely photo!! haha that tiny store was so packed but the plushy goodness was worth it. I still want one of those owls!!!
