THIS weekend is the second annual Renegade Craft Fair in SAN FRANCISCO @ the Fort Mason Center Festival Pavilion: JULY 18 + 19, 11am – 7pm! Be sure not to miss it! Over the last six years, RCF has gained the reputation of being the biggest, best and the most well-known of all the DIY craft fairs. With over 200 indie-artists selling cool, handmade stuff - including plush items, jewelry, posters, prints, clothing, stationery plus workshops and more. Don't miss it!

Houdini the Hottie

Houdini the Hottie might be my favorite, but the whole bunch is really wonderful, making it difficult to choose just one. Each hot water bottle cover is removable for easy washing and uses recycled fabrics. Oozing with with personality and full of mischief. Crafted by From to From, you can pick up yours now before it gets cold. Gotta love a utilitarian object that makes you laugh and feel cozy inside.

Village Green

Vaughn Bell, Village Green, Installation at MassMoCA (2008) Photo by Kevin Kennefick

I've been OBSESSED with this image since Swam Gallery sent out their announcement for the upcoming show Natural Selection in August. The show pairs Josh Keyes and Vaughn Bell together in an exhibition that will explore the ways we interact with nature - paintings and a site-specific installation. I am hoping Vaughn Bell's instillation will be something along the lines of the Village Green installation since I can't seem to stop thinking about these hanging biospheres and really want to experience them.

Natural Selection will be opening Friday, August 7th from 6-8pm.
