Fall in East Austin

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Sadly and typically I’m unable to go home for Thanksgiving and am the orphaned celebrator, but this is the first Thanksgiving I celebrated with my boyfriend and his family and it was great! We went to Austin’s famous Threadgill’s and then played bocce at Zilker Park. I climbed a tree and played soccer and I can’t tell you HOW F’ING AMAZING BOTH THOSE THINGS FELT. Disconnecting from the computer and phone for a day and being outside felt better than I could have ever imagined. Sad, huh? Well, I’m hooked now and want to go play bocce right now! In the meantime, here are some pictures from the second weekend of the East Austin Studio Tour and Turkey Day.

someone put swings under this overpass. it’s hard to tell, but there are swings in every section heading towards the back.

    Those swings just made my day. I love when people take an unhospitable looking space and make it fun.

      Me too. I love DIY projects, street art, adaptive reuse….all those things where people really use their imagination!

    Where can one find those amazing swings?

      You know, I don’t know! I think whomever put them up, made it themselves! They’re painted red. One swing can fit about 3-4 people on it!
