I.C.E. and Globe

After having such a great time at last year's Indie Craft Experience (I.C.E.), we knew we couldn't pass it up this year. The 7th Annual I.C.E. took place a few weekends ago and its shameful that I'm just getting around to posting about it now because it was bigger and better than ever. There were over 100 tents (click here for a list and links of all the vendors), workshops, a craft library and live music.

The only drawback was the heat. Lauren and I got so hot we ran out of steam and didn't take too many pictures.

Cute stuffed octopus by fattycakes and the lovely hats by humblebumbleb.

Of course the heat didn't slow down our shopping! My great purchase of the day was this lovely "fascinator" hat (held in place by two hair pins) made by Brenda of Humblebumbleb. I love the feathers and retro feel of it, but the best part is that it was less than $20! I'm considering it the deal of the century. $12 for a well-made, handcrafted, fabulous hat. Are you jealous? No need to be - you can purchase a similar one from the Humblebumble website.

I took the images below right after I bought the hat, so my hair isn't styled for it. I'll probably sweep my bangs to one side and pull my hair back when I wear it for real.

After I.C.E. we hopped back on MARTA and stopped by The Globe restaurant in midtown for lunch.

We love the decor at The Globe. It has a sleek, modern look with its white walls and Eames chairs, but it also has a cozy feel to it with a huge back wall of books and a lounge area filled with coffee tables and couches. And our sandwiches were delicious!

That looks like a fun day. I'm very interested in those hats.

The restaurant looks really fun. I wish there was a similar place where I live.

Man, I wish I'd known about it. I would've gone. I love that kind of thing.

Also, in response to your comment on my blog: I would love it if you happened to be at Lenox to drop by the Lush at Macy's (which is where I work.) It would be a treat!

The fascinator looks great and for $12! WOW! Love the food shot, although it definetly has me craving something even half as yummy as it looks.
