Sunday evening we decided to go to the local Methodist Church’s pumpkin patch that they have every year with our friends who have the cutest little baby girl. It was around 5:30, so the lighting was just perfect. Abram of course had to wear his dinosaur hat, and Annabelle was sporting her new coat we found at the Micanopy festival on Saturday. It is the most precious felt coat! We had a lot of fun at the pumpkin patch taking sweet pictures and laughing at my ridiculous son.
This past Saturday was the annual Micanopy Festival in Micanopy, Florida, which is just south of Gainesville. It is a huge festival that fills the streets of downtown Micanopy, and has some of the best treasures anyone has to offer. Kim, Abe and I set out to the festival with our friends alliray, Katie, Krista and Camilia. It was so much fun! The weather was cool and perfect, and there were so many great booths and antique shops to gaze upon. It’s so hard to go to festivals like these because there is just never enough money to buy all of the loot that I find. I can’t complain though, I made out pretty good this year.
I will def be making a coffee table using the antique window to the right. The other one… I haven’t decided yet.
Abe has already lounged plenty in this winner.
This is just gorgeous.
I just realized as I was inserting that last picture that I completely left out the two BEST PURCHASES! I will have to do a separate post for those, because they are so awesome. You’ll just have to wait and see!
How was your weekend?
So I have been so excited to share with you all my lovely portrait, hand drawn with much skill and passion, by the fabulous Angie Thompson of Heart Sparks Illustration.
Angie is a friend of mine that I have really only gotten to meet once or twice in person. Much like my friend Carrie Mattson (whom I’ve now spent ample time with in person) Angie and I have been getting to know each other via Social Media like instagram and such. We have mutual friends from Greenville, South Carolina. We even went to the same school, but I was only at NGU for a year, not getting the chance to know her.
From what I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing thus far, she is a beautiful person with a ferocious amount of talent. She also has great taste in fashion, coffee and beautiful things in general. I’ve seen her drawings and portraits of couples over the past year, and I finally had to ask her to do one for our little family. Needless to say, I am so happy about the result!
