I’ve always quite a fan of the fair. Something about the red candy apples and the lights of the Ferris wheel sends my heart a flutter and my eyes sparkling like prisms in the sun. Add fancy chickens being shown like prized trophies and I’m in.
So there you have it, this is the fair through the kaleidoscope eyes of Miseducated’s colorfully skewed looking glass.
That was very Warhol of this supermarket sculptor..
This Polish chicken is patiently waiting her time to go home.
As a kid this was always my must-play game.
It was once around $1 for 20 balls and the bowls were all side to side so you won a new pet fish every time.
Esra and I adored the pineapple whip.
Esra and I had a wonderful time and seeing as our fairs are just a bit different than they are in Turkey, it was entertaining for her~ The fair is always a mixed bag.. it’s over-priced, crowded by many people you don’t want to be around and filled with delicious junk food. The lengths I go to for the fair specialties and a few glimpses of chickens is laughable.
Also, pst! If you’re going to be at the fair next Tuesday you’ll be able to see my David Cunningham’s photorealism painting demonstration in the Fine Arts Building.
Don’t you love it when you type out a whole post and then it fails to ‘Save Draft’?
So I’m back from the 3 week trip the beautiful Uganda. My husband was teaching a course about understanding the culture through the arts. The people and the country were gorgeous. I was so homesick while there at first and now I miss it. We had a layover in Brussels on the way as well, beautiful! I hadn’t been there before. More on the trip later.
I’m really into decor as always but specifically offices — perhaps because I’ve been taking on new work lately and am still midway through organizing my own office/creative lab. So inspiring. These are gorgeous.
These days even if you have a good-tasting, innovative product, it’s all the more reason to have a gorgeous brand identity and packaging design to match! How spot-on are these packaging designs for chocolate?
I got the idea to do the following little survey via another lifestyle blog and I thought it was perfect for quick posts with current images you’re inspired by. I can be a big rambler and I thought it was concise and a great way to interject some gorgeous visual inspirations with a little blogger personality. What do you think? I hope you try it as well! I’m going to add a new post full of writing prompts next~ stay tuned xx!
Mew for Today
Listening to… Dr. Phil question a married pastor, who has been cheating on his wife with strippers, while I do design work and blogging. How embarrassing! You caught me off guard!
Loving… STRONG almond flavored coffee from The Fresh Market, Chicago Mix that our amazing friends Chip & Kim gifted us on our game night AND ban.do‘s new goodies, Ahh!
Reading… the Radical Self Love Almanac by Gala Darling ~ the design is adorable and The Secret as usual (have you tried the app?).
Wanting… to decide what color to paint our bedroom and hallway walls! I’m leaning towards gray but green keeps creeping in… I’m also really excited to see my husband when he gets off work.
Watching… We’ve been obsessively watching Game of Thrones every week and Fear the Walking Dead. I also, as you know, occassionally enjoy listening to reality tv while I work. Ack! Don’t judge me too harshly..
Wearing… black black black, geometric leggings with raised black designs and a black sequin bralette with plastic wrap on my head because I’m re-dying my hair blue & pink!
myself & my bf lauren in NYC last week~
We’ve been in the process of remodeling our kitchen slowly. It started with the walls and lighting and I’m still gathering ideas for the rest. We have a lot of wall shelves and I think I want even more.. then I found THIS kitchen. I want to move in and have tea here everyday. Who’s with me? Pink and gold.. depression glass.. marble.. yes.
