Inman Park Festival

I am working on a write-up, but for now here are a couple of photos.

Inman Park Festival

Michael and I are joining a couple of friends to sell our collective crafts. I made 16 new necklaces and squeezed in extra shoe clip at the last minute. I have several pieces ‘in process’ that will help me with a show I’m doing here in Charleston on June 5. I took photos of everything but have only managed to get 6 uploaded to my Flickr. I also tried shooting a new way today while being SWARMED by gnats.

I’ll upload the rest when we get home along with a full report. Oh yes, new computer will be purchased next week!

Inman Park goodies

The Inman Park Festival was absolutely amazing as always! We had a pretty sweet spot and wonderful vendor neighbors. I had some really great response to the pieces I brought, which was a serious creative boost. I also took the opportunity to spend most of the earnings with fellow festival vendors. I’ll have to wait to post some (to share the vendor love) after they’ve been given to their new owners. First up is something I bought for Michael, a jellyfish cast in glass by The Amazing Jellyfish. They had a variety of colors and sizes and I selected the blue because it will most likely live in the guest room. An added bonus with these is that they glow in the dark. Michael is going to build a light stand for them and I’ll post images when he’s finished. We’re also going to do another black light exposure like our vaseline bowl. The other was purchased from a vintage/antiques dealer that sadly doesn’t have a website. I was originally attracted to the booth to ask about an antique perfume bottle and ended up walking away with the paperweight. I think they’ll be perfect together!

Yesterday also marked mine and Michael’s third anniversary! More on that in a few…

Love your mother

My next to last Inman Park Festival vendor shout out goes to Drea Firewalker (sadly, no website) and her garden art. We bought this bird feeder for mom and it is now about a foot and a half from the millstone pond. I snapped an update shot of it the week before last:

This eCard from Tyler made my day yesterday.

I love that boy.

Speaking of ‘Love Your Mother‘, we were treated with several rain showers throughout the day yesterday. That’s the ultimate mother loving!

I hope it was a safe and fabulous weekend for all!

Bon Weekend – share the love edition

I’m going to end the week with a shout out to another Inman Park Festival vendor, Southeast Succulents. I stumbled upon their booth while on my way to pick up some lunch and to the ATM machine. We NEED sea urchin shells and we can always use more air plants, and the three combo deal just couldn’t be beaten. These are now living in the bedroom and I’m sure we’ll give them some outdoor time every now and then!

Speaking of more air plants, we grabbed a couple while we were at Hyams the other day. We needed to replace the ones we lost over the winter. We also decided to attach them to an old hanging planter in hopes of making it easier to bring them inside when the cold weather is upon us once again. The old branch screwed to the railing wasn’t as easy. 😉

Thanks so much, we really enjoy the new additions to the family!

Also, I would like to thank Apartment Therapy for including our garden space as part of their Great Outdoors series. We have a long way to go but I hope we’ve provided a little inspiration.

*Chirp, chirp*

Where does the time go when one is busy and doesn’t have much to say? Hey, it goes almost two weeks since a post.

I’m heading out to Atlanta Friday morning to attend the Inman Park Festival. We (our seriously awesome friends and I) had a booth two years ago and back in 2004, and we’re coming back! It’s one of my favorite spring events and I’m so excited to ‘have an excuse’ to be there this year.

I’m hoping we’re to the same spot (or at least on Edgewood) as two years ago. I love being on the parade route! Oh and, please no rain this year!

New Piece

I realized that I hadn’t uploaded any photos of one of my new pieces that actually sold at the Inman Park Festival. I only got a couple of decent photos during the rush of the last day before we left for Atlanta.

I’m going to make another similar to this, as no two can be exact. 🙂
