Happy Fall Astoria 😍

So many great things happening in Queens this weekend including @qofastoria's annual Queens Hip Hop Festival, the @makerfaire at @nysci, a @thesalvagedsawhorse popup at @thebrassowl my sons basketball practice, and much much more! I'm gonna try and make it to everything and you should too except Henry's practice cause that would be weird 😘😘😘

While I can't figure out the weather or Trump's actual stance on DACA or why the twins are still on @projectrunway (they're helping each other it's not fair!!!) one thing I do know is that I'm excited to vend this Sunday at @queenscraftbrigade so come out and say hey. I'll have tons of cowls, turbans and cup cozies. Seen here is the slate gray cowl worn two ways: straight up and folded over. 😘

Knit Turban Style Earwarmers have been knitted up, photographed and listed in the shop! These are coming with me this Sunday to the @queenscraftbrigade. I'm excited because @hifirecordsastoria is DJ'ing again which was my favorite thing about last time besides all the awesome vendors and nonstop flow of awesome visitors BUT ALSO there will be cold brew (as well as bagged coffee-- roasted IN QUEENS) from @nativeroasters so I won't have to text my husband to please bring me coffee like I usually do at markets πŸ’πŸ» see you there!

First day at a new school (we moved to be closer to mass transit so I could finally feel comfortable working in the city and being able to get to them quickly in a pinch--used to live in a two fare zone and their old school was extremely far from the train) ANYWAY in other words if they hate the new school it's completely and totally my fault so you know..I stopped at the store and got some lavender essential oils and I'm smelling them all day long at work πŸ’†πŸ»πŸ’†πŸ»πŸ’†πŸ»πŸ’†πŸ»

I kinda wanna rewind and go back to church yesterday and maybe just live there forever? We literally threw yarn balls around the whole sanctuary until we were tangled up before saying our prayers for #charlottesville #barcelona and all over the world (and our thanksgiving for #boston) thank you @middlechurch and @revjacquilewis
