I needed something to hang small print, cards, photos, etc. on the wall with. And here in NC, there is bamboo a-plenty, so I took a couple of lengths and mounted it to the wall. $1.00 in vintage ribbon and clothespins from a local thrift store later, I have a fun wall hangy thing...perfect for my homemade moustache stickers and swirly tree greeting cards! (But you could use this in your home for photos!)
Step 2.) Wave your fringe (see video below).
Step 3.) Watch brilliant, wacky, zany, funny small plays, beautiful dance, enjoy local brews and laugh with friends in make-shift performance studios in the River Arts District. (This stage was in a pottery studio.)
Step 3.5) Watch funny puppet shows, too.
4.) I don't know if there IS a caption for this photo...
Oh, and here is a little more Fringy goodness:
This was the outside of the building BEFORE we attacked it with a beautiful spectrum of paint this past weekend. Trust me: this photo makes it look good. It was a hot mess, but Erinn, myself and many of our super supportive friends saw the diamond in the rough.
Steph- putting on the first strokes of paint!
Take a look at the sky! Nearly 70 degrees- just gorgeous...perfect building painting weather! Lots of our friends (so graciously) stopped by in paint clothes to help. THANK YOU SO MUCH to all of you who helped make this happen!
Somewhere around 5:30 p.m., it was on the brink of dusk and Laura exclaimed, "let's put the sign up now!" (We were going to do it on Sunday.) Our adreneline was pumping and we didn't want to stop. So (despite the fact that I look like I am not helping at all in any of these pictures), I finished striping the awning and climbed the ladder 15 feet in the air to hang the giant sign I made. I completely conquered my fear of heights. Sort of.And here we are, soaking up the last few minutes of sunlight, exhausted, dehydrated and sunburnt under the fancy new sign of our Asheville business! Yay!
