New Additions: Art Festivals

I’ve hinted a little about the awesome art festivals that Boise has had the last two weekends, Art in the Park & Hyde Park Street Fair. A big part of these festivals, beyond just people watching, is the plethora of vendors selling beyond everything you could think of. Somehow this year I walked away with nearly exclusively earrings. So I thought I’d give you a peak at what I got recently.

These two earrings are from my absolute favorite booth at Art in the Park, Joseph Brinton. Now, mostly I love them because they have a very large collection of adorable 1/2 off selection. So I got both of these for what I consider a steal.   gold leaf earrings with holesgold and bronze geometric and pendant earrings

Last year I wandered around the Hyde Park Street Fair and stumbled upon a booth that had the cutest silver cartoon elephant earrings. At the time I didn’t have cash and never got the opportunity to get them. This year, I made it a priority to find those earrings. I found a booth with these gorgeous little studs and quickly picked them up, only to later realize the ones I saw last year were at a different place.  I ended up getting the second pair of earring at the second booth, and turns out I am so much happier with these realistic versions. I’d like to say that elephants are my spirit animal, I just love them, or maybe just the look of them. Either way, I’ve been wearing these little beauties non-stop.

Through my hectic Saturday at work I realized I was unprepared hair wise. I first saw this headband and thought why buy it when I could easily make it! It also happened to be from one of the not local/handmade booths, so I was wary to support a business that had strayed from the idea of the festival. However, circumstance just forced me ( 😛 ) to pick up this awesome black and gold dotted headband on my break. As my luck would have it, I didn’t end up needing it for the rest of the evening, but I’m still glad I got it, and am wearing it as I write the out. I think I will try to use it as a pattern to make some more, because they had so many cute versions!

This final earring set is very dear to my heart and I’m so excited that I can now wear my passion! I purchased them at Blue Moon Antiques, which is located in Hyde Park. While they aren’t vintage, they are adorable. The artist, Beautiful Dreamer, had a great selection of cute charm earrings and it was almost hard to decide on just one.

So there’s my haul! I now have more earrings then I could ever need but i’m so excited to start cycling through these new additions.

Which pair is your favorite? What do your favorite earrings look like?
