WMC FEST, Jonna Saarinen and Other Exciting Things!
Yep, I'm still on vacation and yep, my generous husband's still watching the shop. He's had a crazy weekend - our air conditioning went out on Friday and wasn't fixed til Tuedsday. It's such an old building, we go through this every summer it seems.
I had a great time at Renegade Brooklyn and got to meet the most talented people ever - I swear I'll write a recap ASAP. We're upstate, now, the kid + I, visiting some cousins and seeing the sites of Lake George and Western Vermont. Yesterday, we toured Hildene, Robert Todd Lincoln's summer home. Soon we're headed back to the Jersey Shore which, despite the hell they went through, seems to be plugging along as America's playground...fireworks and museums and sand and aquariums in our future.
WMC FEST = 20 SPEAKERS, 20 DESIGNERS, 40+ BANDS
In the meantime, I wanted to pass along the brilliant lineup for this year's Weapons of Mass Creation Fest. Held in Cleveland, OH, the WMCFest brings together art, design and music's best and brightest for an amazing weekend you do not want to miss. Tickets for the entire weekend are $75, but if you hurry(!), there are still a limited number of discounted tickets ($65) available.
I'm headed there and I think some other DSMies are, too. You should go! Great speakers, great bands, awesome eats, a few beers...Let me know when you get your tickets and we'll start a little online caravan to keep in touch and meet up in Cleveland - DSM represent!
JONNA SAARINEN HAND-PRINTED TEA TOWELS + TRAYS
Also, look at these unbelievably gorgeous, modern tea towels + trays designed by the super talented Jonna Saarinen. All the way from the UK, they're a perfect addition to Domestica's summer offerings. Jonna's an award-winning textile designer originally from Finland, now making her home in the UK. Her saturated designs bring a seaside summer to your kitchen, bar and patio - perfect for the 4th!
Have a great weekend! Get outside, get some sun, get some swim and, if the last week's any indication, get some sweat in, too!
