I went to the Arizona Renaissance Festival this past weekend, and I thought I would take you guys along with me!
I've gone at least 5 times before (although I think more). This year I actually tried to do a sort of Renaissance inspired hair style...ok, really I was inspired by the show Reign and we all know that show is not historically accurate at all, but I tried!
Picking up souvenirs from these sorts of places is one of my favorite things, and this year I got a rose necklace, and it's not just any rose necklace. It's a rose. Like a real rose that has been turned into a necklace! I was amazed when I saw it!
I love flowers and so I had to have it! They came in all different colors too, but this one is perfectly shaped and such a pretty shade of pink.
There are lots of different little stands and shops with little trinkets such as jewelry, journals, clothes, food! Oh the smells.
So many different foods to chose from, most people go for giant Turkey legs, but those things turn my stomach in the worst way. Not my kind of food, so I usually get a bread bowl.
My favorite places are full of unique crafts that people make and sell. Like the rose necklace that was handmade.
At some places the artist is right there working on a project. Whether it be clay or glass blowing, I always admire the craftsmanship.
I am enchanted by a lot of things in every day life, but there are a few things at the Renaissance festival that completely blow me away.
Like the garden full of fairies.
So what do you think? Have you ever been to a Renaissance Festival?
