It's Flowertown Festival time, again!
Why is it that I love this event so much? After the holidays end, I usually hold off on taking any time away from work until the festival. You know how when you hold out for something for a while, it is just so good? This day off was SO good. Also for me, the festival is this strange mix of amazing people watching and time alone, because the people here aren't "my people." Being the introvert that I am, I like a little time alone. Can you blame me? This event represents spring and it means that warm lowcountry weather is on the way. Thank goodness! The festival is wholly outside, so you can breath in delicious fresh air while you walk to booth after wonderful little booth. My favorite part of all though is the ideas. All of the amazingly creative ideas! This event refreshes and inspires me.
If you're here near town, you've got to get out to main street and take it in! Maybe you'll find something special to take home, too.
Here were a few of the things that caught my eye this year -
Custom Garden Rocks Whisky Rock Dispensers by Dan Dunleavy
Barn Painting by Rachel Walker
So you guys. At this booth last year, there was this gorgeous painting of an angel. I have been kicking myself for not buying it all year and was so hoping that she would be back and have a similar one this year. See, I haven't been able to find her online. No luck, no angel paintings this year. She did have this gorgeous barn painting though, and the little cottony looking flowers give it such a whimsical touch that I love. Anyway, if any of y'all know how to get in touch with Rachel, please leave a comment.
At this booth they also had a bunch of Chip and Jo Jo Magnolia style home decor including various sizes of dough bowls, wooden silverware (or crayon) holders, cotton wreaths, etc. Cute booth.
Southwest Pepper Grillers
Perfect for Jalepeno Poppers. I bet I could alter one of my recipes to work with these cool contraptions.
Art by Bri by Briahna Wenke
I love the cotton and the sky in this painting!
Jessica was so sweet and she can customize the necklaces for you by using different metals and switching out the stones. She said that she's also at the Charleston City Market.
If you love these craft festivals as much as I do, look back at my posts from 2016, 2015 & 2014.
The weather was most ideal this year, but because we had a late freeze just a week or so ago, none of the Azaleas were in bloom today. Blah. Luckily, a few of the vendors were selling some pretty flowers to take home and plant in your garden, like these -
Until next year!
