Happy Friday! We are off to the beach today. Woohoo! It's been forever since I have been on a vacation, even a mini one. So long in fact I just referred to driving two hours to the beach as a vacation. Still I am excited to have a change of scenery, be away from my house cleaning to-do list, and have some new landscape for taking photos. But before I take off for the weekend I wanted to, as promised, share a couple of my favorite finds from the Crafty Wonderland fair I attended.
+ Holly Muller Home is responsible for the beautiful macrame work in the first three images. I spotted them whilst several isles over making a quick trip away from my booth to use the restroom. I spied these amazing cream colored wall hangings and had to take a closer look. They are even more stunning in person. The designer, Holly, was so sweet and is obviously incredibly talented, you can learn more about her at her blog and visit her Etsy shop.
+ My booth neighbor right next to me was Relm Studios, and her amazing ceramic pieces are the last three photos here (though this is just a tiny sample). I was instantly smitten, her work is phenomenal. The more I looked at it them more I loved it. The more I think about it the more I want to visit them again. As I mentioned it was a bit of a slow day so we were able to chat a bit about her process and inspiration, which again, just made me fall deeper in love with her creations. She has a shop here and a blog here (her blog has a lot of really great behind the scenes pictures of her work in various stages of the process).
+ I would like to add this book to my coffee table.
+ Last time I linked to photos of abandoned spaces everyone seemed to have the same fascination with them as I did. I found another photography series of abandoned places, by Johnny Joo who also has a book coming out called empty spaces (is it too early to start a christmas list?).
+ And while we are talking about abandoned places this art series by Carola Schapals, is so breathtaking.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
