Hi friends! What a gorgeous weekend to live in the CLE! I don’t know about you, but we spent most of the weekend outdoors attacking yardwork and putting some finishing touches onto #thecrawfordclubhouse. HUGE thanks go out to our friend Sasha for his love and his expert craftsmanship skills that went into building the coolest kid clubhouse I have ever seen. I can’t wait to post more details once it is all said and done, stay tuned!
For now, here is my monthly “Currently loving in the CLE” May edition!
Flower (& strawberry) Weekend at the North Union Farmers Markets
That’s right…it’s just about strawberry season at the markets. This weekend at Shaker Square and Crocker Park farmers markets get there early and you might be able to score some fresh pints of natures little, red “candies.” If the berries aren’t ripe enough (or if they sell out too early) not to fret you can pick up plenty of flowers to plant in your summer pots and beds. It’s time for FLOWERS (& strawberries!) Happy gardening to all.
Beauty Shoppe | Foyer
If you’ve seen all the lovely, pink interiors floating around in Cleveland IG-land, most likely they were taken in this most gorgeous coffee shop and co-working space; Beauty Shoppe. I had the opportunity to work remotely at Beauty Shoppe the other day and to say it was a productive day was an understatement. Perhaps it was because of the flowing cups of coffee from the baristas at Foyer (all Beauty Shoppe co-working members get complimentary coffee!) but probably more so, it was the bright creative space which allowed me to relax and attack my to-do list. Looking for a place outside your home office to tackle your project list or maybe outside your larger office for working on a special project, go talk to Kyle at the Beauty Shoppe for co-working office space opportunities. I LOVED my time at this perfectly-pastel, Ohio City co-working destination.
Annual Larchmere Street Sale : Saturday, May 25th
Last year I stumbled upon this street sale and this year it is bolded on our family calendar. The street is filled with different and fresh vendors than ones we typically see at other street sales around town. The sale is mixed with makers and vintage vendors and there really is a treasure for everyone. Sale starts around 9am, but I recommend visiting around lunchtime for some of the delicious, food vendors. Looking to sell? You can still apply to be a vendor, details can be found on their facebook event invite.
Blossom Balloon Glow : Thursday, May 23rd
When we first moved to the east side of Cleveland, we had no idea what to expect from the Blossom Festival in Chagrin Falls over Memorial Day Weekend. We packed up some blankets and a few snacks and headed out to the field to enjoy an evening of launching hot air balloons and boy, was it magical! Besides the carnival rides and hometown parades that Blossom is famous for, I vote for the Balloon Glow as my ultimate favorite event over Blossom time!
Feather Leather Designs earrings
The artists over at Feather Leather were so kind and sent me a few pairs of their handmade leather earrings to try out a few weeks ago. Thanks, ladies! I love how light, bright and versatile their designs are. PLUS, they are made locally in Twinsburg. Looking for a fun gift? Perhaps you want a handful of custom earrings for a special outfit or bridal party fashions give the artists behind the Feather Leather brand a call.
Last but not least on this “Loving in CLE” May post…don’t miss my friends newly designs blog; Modern Musings. Congrats Kim on your new design and blog format…we all need a bit of you in our lives. Thank you for sharing your ideas, insights and best of all your incredible sense of style!
That’s it for this month. Next up….SUMMER IN CLEVELAND!!!
