Ah, Spring gets ever-closer! It was in the eighties yesterday and it looks like it will be in the seventies and eighties all week. I've packed up the winter clothes and I'm ready to be outside as much as possible. It was a particularly busy non-stop-moving crazy week and I was grateful to spend all day yesterday outside enjoying the perfect weather at the free Natural Life Music Festival.
And I enjoyed some new vegan food truck offerings. The Hyppo is an ambitious local popsicle business that started in St. Augustine and now is in three cities with various locations. This was my first try, I will certainly be buying one every time I see their truck now. A new addiction is born. The pineapple cilantro pop above was refreshing on the hot (technically, winter) day.
Lovely live music filled the air. There stations with dancers, crafters, and even an area to practice yoga.
And my favorite surprise was this refabricated retro camper, done up Floridian style and stationed with tropical popped palms, bright gerber daisies, patio furniture, and of course, kitschy pink flamingos.
The owner travels around Florida in here little camper, and you can tell it's been revamped with love. I'm positive the little seashell touches were collected at different beaches.
"Lucky" is right! This is the left side, a sleeping nook I assume. Beautifully appointed. Love the outdoor tiki theme with the torches.
The owner was at her tiny kitchen (with little stove and sink!) making iced pink lemonade.
To the right there's a colorful breakfast nook. I love the cabinet nobs with mermaids and starfish and the playful mix of beachy textures.
Even the floor is appropriately "sandy" and very well updated.
And is that a little TV?! Love that perfect light fixture above the sink, too.
The Florida-shaped cutting board is rather perfect, too.
I had already made up my mind to travel the USA in an RV, hippie van or something similarly kitschy but it didn't hit me until I saw this van at the festival that I can take my crafts and upcoming natural skin care line on the road in one. Somehow I've got to try to make this happen!
The festival was inspiring brain re-boot for my upcoming businesses and a reminder to make these things happen so I can fund what I love the most; traveling and simply, truly, living.
