The Beehive Bazaar had a new location this year in The Startup Building. I was a bit sad that they were moving because the old location was within walking distance of my home before, but I have to say the new location was great!
The building had more space, and the feeling of the space was fun as well. And there is just something about a historic old building that lends itself perfectly to a fair full of local artisans. There were favorite vendors on hand, like Mom’s Stuff (seriously great salve), and some new fun faces as well.
I brought home some Mom’s Stuff, and of course, I had to bring home one of the funny trolls! I love my troll, it has a full head of plant dreadlocks.
The fun part about the bazaar is that each weekend has some different vendors, so you can find new things if you go both times. Some vendors attend both weekends too.
Did you visit the Beehive Bazaar this spring? It has fast become one of my favorite traditions. I can’t wait until the winter show to do some holiday shopping!
Mother’s Day is almost here, and if you are still stumped on what to get your mom, I have a great idea. Especially if your mom loves to garden! And of course, this would be an amazing gift for any garden lover at any time of the year.
High quality garden gloves are always welcome for any gardener. These beauties come in a six pack, and will last through many garden seasons! Give one, or all, to the gardeners in your life.
Spoil your favorite gardener with their very own potting bench! This bench is truly lovely. It doesn’t come assembled, but it only took me about an hour to put together (doing it alone). The bench is light weight too, which makes it easy to move around when you need to. I love that it has two different styles on the bench part, and storage under too.
You can’t see them in the photo, but there are hooks under the top shelf so you can hang tools. It would be a nice touch to buy a few potting tools and hang them on the hooks as part of the gift!
You can find other fun garden inspired gift ideas at your local ACE Hardware. They also have an order online and pick up in store feature on their website.
Disclosure: I was provided a potting bench and gloves in exchange for this post.
Awhile back I got the chance to review a book called REMAKE. You can see my full review here, but I will recap quickly by saying that it was an interesting book. It’s written for young adult readers, but I enjoyed it too even though I’m not so young anymore. The concept was really interesting, see for yourself in the trailer below:
And of course, feel free to enter the giveaway too! REMAKE is the first in a planned trilogy (thank goodness because the first book totally leaves things hanging). Good luck.
We have been trying to find ways to reduce our energy costs, and one of the things we have done is change our light bulbs. LED bulbs are a great choice, and luckily ACE Hardware has come up with this handy guide to help you pick the right bulb for your home.
Do you use LED bulbs? What do you think of them? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
