festival faces.

As usual, the Inman Park Festival did not disappoint. So many people to watch, amazing artists to support and fried food to enjoy. And of course, there was the infamous parade!

I trudged home not only with a sweet sunburn and tired feet, but also with a glass stopper painted by my friend Leigh (please do go look for her booth if you stop by on Sunday — her work is amazing and so very giftable) and of course, one more piece from Cara Gilbert (my collection has now grown to a sizable 4).

Oh Inman Park festival, you never cease to amaze me.

ps. Happy "meetiversary", Witt.

Lucky you...getting to go to the festival. That's one of the things I miss about not being in Atlanta anymore.

I'm going to be back for a month though soon...flying in on Tuesday. I don't know if I'll be able to deal with the traffic after spending so much time on narrow country lanes in my village of 500.

I always enjoy your posts. They connect me. Thanks for sharing about Inman's fairly close to a house I still own in Home Park.

Ah, I can't believe we missed the festival this year! Out of the three years that we've lived here, I've been able to go back for two out of three years' festivals. Your pictures are so great! I've eaten a few meals under that yellow striped tent and witnessed one butterfly ball. I talked to my sister who toted her 3 kids there on Sunday with her husband and she said it was great. I have the cutest picture of my husband volunteering at a beer stand like 5 or 6 years ago at the festival in his butterfly logo shirt. Anyway, I should spare your comment section from me going on and on, but it is the best neighborhood street festival ever and reminds me of home more than anything. I'll be there in a few weeks though and can't wait!
