plans

man, i love the weekend. i think even more than the weekend i love the anticipation of it. as soon as it actually begins, it feels like it'll soon be over, and then before we know it it's sunday night. AA Milne said it best, so i'll just leave it to him.

this weekend one of my favorite friends is in town from florida, and one of Russ' is moving to texas with his wife. so we'll be doing a bit of celebrating and some bittersweet well-wishing. and as always, wrangling these two babysprouts.

when i say wrangling, i mean it. Cal is covering some serious ground with his rolling & has even been known to army crawl an inch or two. i keep telling him to just be a little baby gosh-darnit, but he won't listen. he's taking after his brother in that way, maybe a bit more politely so. Hayes just laughs in my face when i sternly ask him to do/not do something. which usually ends in me laughing as well. note to self: work on poker face.

this weekend also marks the last before Bijou Market season begins again. it was a good month off, but we're ready to get back in the swing of work. Russ has been working on his first-ever booth (unless you count his water and fruit stand a few years ago, which pulled in an astounding $13, ha!) 

he'll be selling a wi---de variety of steel letters, symbols, numbers, arrows etc. that you can commission and customize with different sizes & stains, patinas & paint. pretty exciting! we had a few neighbors over and his welding schedule is quickly filling up already which is exciting! if you'd like to commission him, he's at russbframe at gmail dot com. 

here's the piece we put up in our house:
it's 8 feet long, and 70 pounds so let's all pray we never see an earthquake around here.
also, if you are a crafty lady or gent and want to apply for April, head to Bijou Market for info! Happy weekend!!

first, I am happy that I contributed $1 to that $13 income, I remember being so glad to have an ice cold diet coke that day. Second, yes yes and yes I am going to need some sort of metal on my wall!

WOW ... LOVE that arrow ... but man ... how did you ever figure out to hang it?! hopefully you have some good studs that it's nailed into :) and i like the collage you did behind your table too!

Emily Frame said...

We used L bracket in studs & then drilled the arrow to them. So scary but it's good & secure!

Hi! You don't know me... i am Mari Spiker's MIL. Love the giant arrow! Wish I had a place in my house for such fabulousness. I am desperately trying to think of a spot in our cabin in Sundance... maybe something Sundancy.... rustic...

Emily Frame said...

Mari's MIL! Thanks for saying hi -- Russ and I said from the start that these signs are perfect for cabins. We'd love to work with you!
