Weekend Wander: The Market at Riverview Landing

As I was reading through a Daily Candy weekend email recently, I came a cross an outdoor market event that was happening near the Chattahoochee River. So that Saturday, my hubby, our puppy and I wandered over to The Market at Riverview Landing. This parcel of land, currently under redevelopment, provided beautiful vistas of the river and a multi-acre dog park. We enjoyed the sounds of a local Americana band and the sights of a high-flying dog agility competition.The Market occurs every weekend through the summer with farm fresh fare, homestyle baked goods, food trucks, and all types of local vendors. Definitely worth checking out!

3. Colorful coleus were among the plentiful plants being sold at the market that day.
4. My hubby and our puppy enjoying a stroll through the dog pasture.

New Series: Tablescapes

I'm super excited to announce a new feature for my blog -- the Tablescape series. Each month I'll showcase a new tablescape that I've created for events. This month's edition is inspired by summery citrus hues. I started with the striped fabric runner as my inspiration. Next, I layered in mixed bouquets of roses, ranunculus and flowering branches. The green bee plates are from Anthropologie. I saw them during a store visit a few last year and couldn't leave with out them! The chalkboard menus adds another layer of whimsy. And, the Galaxy macaroons from Gilt Taste were the perfect final touch.  Enjoy!

P.S. I couldn't resist using the glitter letter technique I recently learned in my Blogging Your Way 2.0 class. Many thanks to Katrina Tran of PuglyPixel for the great tips!

Artist of the Week: KAWS

If your are even tangentally connected to pop culture and music, I am sure you have seen his work. KAWS aka Brian Donnelly is a Brooklyn-based artist and product designer. He got his start in the 1980s as a grafitti artist, but has gone on to produce world renowned, vivid acrylic paintings and stately sculptures that showcase his interpretation of cultural icons such as the Michelin Man, Mickey Mouse and The Simpsons. KAWS also designed the album artwork for Kanye West's 808s and Heartbreak. I had the pleasure of viewing his DOWN TIME installation at the High Museum during a recent visit.  This post highlights some of my favorite pieces. To learn more about KAWS visit his site.
