I don't normally do a non-project post but I had so many photos from the Art Fair in KC I wanted to share.. that I'm doing them in two separate posts. I'll do my project post later today or tomorrow :) For now.. I think you find plenty of beautiful colors and designs to inspire you in these photos. And I'll share some pieces .. that if I had to pick, I would have to say would be my favorites from the show.
My weekend in KC was spent with these two lovely's, Julie and Alexandra. Alexandra lives near KC. Julie and I (Oh... and Ellie).drove there to meet up with her. I'll share a photo of Ellie at the bottom of this post. She is soooo sweet!
We could not have had a nicer weekend weather wise... it was perfect! The next three photos are from the Farmers Market. Oh... what I would do to have that available to me every weekend. I brought home... Pears, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, grapes, peppers , nectarines, tomatoes, fresh cilantro, ect...
I'd love to have this to pick from for cooking anytime I wanted. ahhhh
We had lunch at this fun little vintage style diner called Happy Gillis, that had been featured on "Diners Drive Ins and Dives". The food was delish.
I have so many photos of the art show, I couldn't begin to share them all, or begin to show how huge it was... it went on for blocks on and blocks.
And lets just say.... Lots of great food vendors, and Lots of people! We were so impressed with how many great free Art projects and activities there were for kids! So great to see!
Julie and I in our shirts. ha... matchy matchy
We saw so many beautiful pieces of art and interesting things...but I was so drawn to this artists work. His name is Heinrich Toh.
I loved his work. Here is his website if you'd like to check it out. HEINRICH TOH
Night time on the Plaza Saturday night was even more amazing. Lights, music... and what seemed like, even more people. We went out for traditional KC barbecue and it was so goooood!
Who wouldn't want a French Macaroon for dessert? I had Raspberry and Julie had Passion Fruit, at this darling place called Natasha's Mulbery & Mott
Here is a little peek at the inside. Oh.... swoon!
Sunday morning we took in more of the sights.
On our way to the City wide Flea Market/Garage Sale... and back to the Farmers Market.
I was such a nice weekend, we hated to see it end, but trust me we made the most of every minute we were there, and enjoyed it all.
Now... for the photo of my lap buddy in the car during the trip. Julies baby, .... Sweet Ellie. Here she is on the way home almost asleep with her head in my hand. ( oh.. laying on her blankey of course) I love this dog!
ps I'll be back to share a project in a separate post :)
