I think I’ve mentioned the City Flea before. But I also think I failed to mention exactly what it is, and how awesome it is.
This was my third trip to Cheers to Art in Madeira, Ohio, and it continues to be a blast! Seriously, you must try this, or something like it, if you can. I also planned ahead for this one, and decided to go outside of the “advertised” color palette. I’m planning teals and limes for our bonus room (more on that later this week), so I figured I might as well create some art to hang in the space!
My friend Kris painted with me (thanks Kris!) I love how hers turned out! I’m sort of wishing I’d thrown in some orange or maybe just a smidge of purpley red for the flowers.
We had an awesome Memorial Day holiday weekend; I hope you did as well! The weather was amazing and we spent SO much time outside.
We kicked off the weekend at my favorite local nursery, Nature’s Corner, to stock up on some blooms for the front and back yard.
Planting day is my favorite day of the year. I love soaking up all the inspiration at the nursery, ambling through the aisles to discover all sorts of flowers and dreaming up colorful combinations for containers and hanging baskets and yet-to-be-planted beds.
We came home with quite a haul (this is a little more than half). I’ll be sharing how I planted these suckers over the next week. Trust me, you’ll want to come back for that 😉
We also took in a Reds game. I had some soft-serve ice cream (with sprinkles!) and Tom and I split some nachos. So it was a great game 😉 I hope your weekend was equally awesome!
Stop back later today! I’ll be sharing what I planted in my veggie bed!
ANYONE IN THE SE INDIANA / NORTHERN KENTUCKY / SW OHIO REGION…
You DO NOT want to miss this weekend’s Crafty Supermarket event! There will be tons of awesome artists, curated handmade goods, and delectable local eats.
So get yourselfs to Clifton.
And maybe I’ll see you there!
My friend, Katie, and I spend a lovely Saturday morning this past weekend sipping mimosas and painting up a pair of shoes at Cheers to Art.
This was my second visit to Cheers to Art and it was just as fun as the first. Maybe more so, because I love mimosas!
But drinking and painting can result in wonky looking shoes, even when you’ve traced a shoe stencil onto your canvas.
But everything turns out great in the end!
