gypsy dreamland night
remember our big witchy-full-moon-girls-gathering back in january?
well we've been trying to plan a follow-up full moon themed girls night for months now and it finally happened.
rachel planned it so that we could have it at her rad airstream trailer in the woods (which i've written about before here): perfect setting for a full moon gypsy caravan forest spread.
are you ready ladies......okay, check out this magic she created.....
seriously, i died and went to heaven.
every detail was perfect: candles, colored strings of lights, rickety chairs, velvet couch heaped with instruments, scarves and tapestries hanging from the branches, a record player in a wheelbarrow draped in pink gauzy fabric, flowers and herbs and bells and baskets.
pure gypsy summer outdoor loveliness.
brittney looks like a real romany, we decided.
i had worked a long hard day, so i rushed home, threw on some gypsy garb and whipped up a fresh corn/avocado salad, grabbed a bottle of wine and i was on my way.
(easy because this was the constant halloween costume of my youth, hell my whole life.)
it is not a far cry from my normal clothes, really. layers, bangles, slips, gems, head decor...throw it all on, i love the MUCHNESS of gypsy costume.
rachel and her mama kelly, a very inspiring woman.
yay crafting...we made little lanterns out of fabric and jars and wire.
tis a sweet feeling indeed, to sit in a circle of friends in the forest and craft together.
gypsy kitty helping.
i don't have any pictures of the finished lanterns but they really did look vivid and cute all patchworky and lit up in the dark. below, amber hangs hers in the branches.
getting real cozy.
this is courtney. i just met her at gypsy night and she is a ridiculously wonderful gal.
i want her to move to my town. oh by the way, she's drinking the homemade sangria which i indulged in a bit too heavily!
also, chelsea and rachel made this drink called "the gypsy" with benedictine tea. it was crraaazzyyy tasting. we passed it around and shared it.
later the night turned into hula hooping, singing and dancing round the fire under the full moon.
ahhh glorious gypsy night, and glorious girls for being in my life and heart.
thank you for reading, blog friends. i wish you all had been there too!
