The opening of summer brings the fulfillment of spring with its promise of warm, leisurely days, backyard living, and my personal favorite, the farmers’ markets. I love those fragrant booths, and the chime of happy market goers soaking in the rays of the sun. It seems that time slows just a little there, and it’s wrapped with the perfect dose of nostalgia.
Each stand holds its harvest with commitment of juicy crops full of the earth’s finest color pallet. I find myself staring at the beauty of things as small as a perfectly round pea to the marbled texturing of a watermelon. The colors blend in perfect synergy, painting nostalgic memories into visions of summers past.
I love these markets. I love their hustle and bustle and equally calm and refreshing demeanor. As Spring rolled around this year, I began planning for my Summer projects, and I knew just want I wanted to do. I had been planning it in my head since the close of the last summer. The Farmers’ Market Collection. This collection is taking us back to the perfection of nature with luscious brushstrokes, warm, Summer colors, and that feeling of markets. I’m excited to be sharing this collection with you, and I hope you love it as much as I do!
