pain + pyrite

I have returned from the wonderful city of Austin and I can't even tell you what a whirlwind this weekend was! I had so much fun spending time with my two favorite people and meeting several of you guys at the Renegade Craft Fair!! 

I'm really grateful for Adrienne because she not only helped with the whole event, but she watched my booth for me while I went to see Elisha run in the Spartan Race! (It was so unbelievably hot and mud was everywhere, so please excuse my appearance!) I was so proud of him for finishing in the top 9%!! There were close to 1000 racers! He's such an inspiration to me, that I'm even considering doing it next year. eeps!

We made friends with our boothmate, Jess of Fox and Brie, who sells the most darling bowties! And as always, it was so much fun walking around and meeting all of the vendors. The whole weekend was a blast, but it sure is nice to be home. I fully intend on updating the shop very very soon!! I have so many new things that I've had quite a few requests for, so I'll be sure to keep you posted friends! 

Thanks so much for all of your support through comments, instagram and twitter - it means so much to me!

have a sweet week! melisa

  2. I have a kitten who looks just like that - well most cats look quite similar. But hey it's extremely cute. It looks as though you have had a lovely week. I love your blog xx

    1. He's just the sweetest! My sister does a fostering program with her local humane society - so he's just visiting for now:)

  3. Sad I couldn't make it to the Renegade fest this year. Your booth looks amazing and I love your new wood sign!
