 Aside from the grim allergies it all has given me, i'm loving every bit of this color the Earth is currently showered in. 

my closest friends here & i had a lovely celebratory pinic last week complete with greek food & random things alex thought were picnic-worthy(a.k.a. the things she wanted to get out of her kitchen. ha!)



we sat out at the dam until sunset, hence the under-exposed, grainy photos that i happen to kind of like.


this past weekend, we had our seasonal art sale-this time held at my house.


(lauren made hula hoops to sell, so we pretty much entertained the masses by hula-hooping all day)

the few necklaces & postcards i had time to make, & my momma's beautiful spring shawls.

Corrinne, who i just met this weekend, makes these neat little lamps out of vintage slides that she has found at estate sales & the like. For you Arkansans, she also runs [this] blog about free things to do in our state. She's from the U.K. & it's neat to see someone originally from far off doing good things around here!

one more week of school & then the(sort of) freedom of summer. 
i'll be going to school in June & working, so i guess it won't be that free, but summer is summer, man!

tori, these pictures are beautiful! it makes me want to not go into work today, and instead- make a picnic with YOU & have an art sale with YOU! I've been thinkin'- while I'm in Arkansas, would you want to have a booth at the farmer's market? the side that is free? we should probably talk about this, of course, but that would be so much fun! & we could possibly make a little cash! so, let me know!!

& I, too, am a fan of the grainy!

Tori! It's Kristen. I have found you in blogland by way of mutual friends. I love the pictures from the sale!! It was a lot of fun. I can't wait for the next one. I'm definitely up for selling in the Rivermarket this summer like we were all mentioning so let me know if you ever go! :) I looked it up and it is only $10 for a spot.
