For todays A Few Things we are drawing from our incredible weekend with our beautiful families. Now, as much as we wish and want to do absolutely everything together (Sorry Tony & Tom) we can't, so this weeks AFT literally is a small collections of things we each did that the other would love to do asap.
Craft Fairs- These aren't yo mama craft fairs of gilded framed oil prints or odd rainbow metal wind chimes...nope! These are the new breed of rad artisans...our peers. Walking through the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend was seriously like walking through a friends house. Only in a gorgeous setting and filled to the brim with the most incredible and hip craftsman. Each booth was better than the last. Here are 3 of our favorites from it...
1. One Forty Three- Funny thing is this we spent this weekend pinning these lights over and over for a project we are working on. And then to see them at our local craft fair in person was totally exciting that I squealed out loud and ran to the booth and quickly put in an order for 3 of these beauties (yup we get this excited about decor)
2. Roux Clothing- The cutest (brand new) kids label of the Kain sisters...We are wondering if these are the same sisters from our old fave tee shirt label "Kain". Their kids like is created of the softest cotton gauze fabrics that are hand dyed, stamped or splatter painted. We picked up 2 of the cutest "tye dyed" rompers and are truly obsessed with them. Beyond talented these 2 sisters are extremely sweet...we can not wait to buy more!
3. Paper Parasol Press- Great vintage looking cards, state posters and the sweetest paper press designs you have ever seen!
Glamping- Not a tent person but want all the perks of mother nature and all her glory? Oh whats that? You would love to swim in the ocean and rinse off in a cute pool? Oops...forgot your s'mores kit? Not a problem...El Capitan camp site has you more than covered.
A campsite for the campers, safari tents for the "campers" and cabins for the "glampers" this gorgeous earth meet ocean site has something for everyone all laid out with the most lovely backdrop (and stocked with essentials like a store, a pool, a spa and yup bathrooms!)
Smoothies- When the summer sun hits hard and you and your family are hungry but cooking seems like the hardest thing to do, and eating warm food seems silly we love to reach for home made smoothies.
Smoothies are a great way to get all your protein, vitamins and fiber all in one cup. They are so healthy (if you don't add silly stuff), a cool meal in a cup and there is something for everyone. Need ideas? Head over to our post on them! PS they are amazing for our little bunnies who are teething...
On the next AFT from TWH? Hmmmm... just wait and see!
PS YOU are one of our AFT too
