Sam’s folks were in town this last weekend, which allowed us to take advantage of doing some of the more tourist-y type things here in Chicago. One of our favorite places we’ve visited since living here is the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio located in Oak Park. There are so many perks to living here in Chicago, but access to historic buildings by so many renowned architects is something we’ve really grown to appreciate. We’ve done two river boat tours and visited FLW’s home twice since moving here. It’s fascinating learning more about the people who shaped and built our city into the space it is today.
Even though this is a short post, I wanted to share some photos from Frank Lloyd Wright’s home and studio. I tend to take more detail-oriented photographs, but I feel that FLW’s penchant for intimate details lends itself to this kind of visual documentation. I hope you enjoy the pictures and visit this beautiful estate-turned-museum yourself!
All weekend, the Renegade Craft Fair filled Division Street here in Chicago. Lucky for me, it was only a half block from my apartment! I spent a few hours browsing (and, yes, buying) things from some of the coolest makers, designers, and artists from around the world. While I managed to snag some sweet ceramics and awesome art prints for our apartment, there were plenty of pieces that stole my heart!
Here’s a quick round-up of me wish list from the Fair. Links to the artist sites are below. A big thanks to all the vendors for inspiring me with your work!
