    I was driving to the gym today and I SAW THIS CAFE off of Sunset.....after the gym me and my friends went back to find it because we absolutely loved this idea and I could not believe I just happened to drive past it! What a coincidence!!
    We were not able to find it driving back the second time. Is there an address or land mark so that I can stop by and see it for myself? I'm curious as to where it actually is since I passed right by it and now I don't see the cafe anywhere. mysterious, i know : )

    Thank you- for your comment and for asking :-)
    I actually meant to add the address info, in case anyone wanted to see, but I never got around to it---So this is very good that you asked!!!
    It is called "Lark". I think Lark Cake Shop. I will pay more attention next time and update this. But I think this will be good enough also.

    It is on Sunset and Micheltorena. I saved a small Google map to show you. It is in Silverlake.
    my best to you,

    Lark Cake Shop- Silverlake

    Your comment makes me very happy :-) This is what it's all about!!!! Flickr, I mean.
    If you get the chance to post a photo, I would love so much to see your design, when it's done.
    A hint on the thumbtacks, they weren't just ordinary, in the size or strength. They seemed like industrial- kind of like an upholstery tack, but in the round thumbtack style. The cafe let me take photos ( they're really nice!!) But the employees didn't know the details of the design. But if I were to do this, I might try a hardware store.
    also, some of the doilies are layered, in different sizes to make one flower.

    I hope I gave you the best idea of how to do this, from my memory.
    Here's to your smashing success with the design over your bed :-)

    This is really beautiful. I'm working on something similar for my bedroom, but I'm using kirigami flowers :)
