If You’re Going To Sherwood Forest…

Friends, Just Good Stuff | Posted by Jannie on 19 March 2010 @ 6:22 PM 44 Comments


Have you ever been to a Renaissance Faire?

We went to our first one on Sunday and it was a total blast!

All those “way-before-quadrophonic” [Jimmy Buffet “You Had To Be There” ] 😉 Lords and Ladies leaping and laughing through the lilies with lances and such.

Wizards and wenches.  Robin Hood saving the day.

Lots of men in tights! (Like the one in the background in the top photo!)

But the best part was by far — Kalyani Creations!!!!!

Remember Kalyani — my fuzzy pants-conjuring friend who sang back-up for me in these videos?

Remember her buttocks!!!


Yeah, that’s her, the gorgeous brunette.  (The taller gorgeous brunette.)  :)  The smaller gorgeous brunette is one of Kelly’s best friends, Erika.

Kalyani is peddling her fine fuzzy wares for the next 3 weekends at our first annual Sherwood Forest Renaissance Festival! She’s got razzle-dazzles of cute fuzzy apparel for guys, gals and kiddos. Pants, tube-tops, hats, skirts, tails.  And more!

The faire is just 30 minutes east of Austin on Hwy 290, heading towards Houston.  (A bit past Elgin.)

Open from 10:00 a.m. to dusk.

The next 3 Saturdays and Sundays!!

February 27th through April 4th, 2010 (six weekends)

Cash, credit, debit, and pieces of eight accepted.

Ale and food aplenty!

Super-super fun for ALL ages!

Merry minstrel men and maiden musicians abound!!

There is also Rousting & Jousting…


and this kind of stuff….


(The ride is cool — not run by electricity, but by brute man power!)

Kalyani Creations!!!


Check out Kalyani’s etsy store.  She is happy to create custom wonders and send them winging across the world.

Congrats, Kalyani!!  Talk about dreams in action. You are so making this happen, Woman!!!  I love you sooooo much!!!!!


So, if you’re going to Sherwood Forest…. be sure to get some fuzzies for your hair.  And body!


And is Ryan looking like a cute little bear-man — or what — in those pants!? Remember Ryan — our piano player??

Sweet Peeps, I am off to pour some wine!

I don’t have to pick Kelly up from gymnastics camp on this final day, because The Other Mom (Erika’s mom, actually) is getting her, whoo-hoo!!!!!!! I mean WHOO-HOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And with wine in hand, shall I now FINALLY immerse my thirstly soul in the wine of your blogs.  First time in 4 days. Well, except for Katie’s The Levity Project Car Dancing Video, of course.  THAT, I HAD to check in on. You Will LOVE that video!

Deep Songwriting Week went very well!  I am blessed beyond compare.

And pretty-much beyond recognition!!  :)

I am wishing you all love.

    Geez, Peeps!!

    When did you all sneak in here? When I was up on the roof with my beer??

    Snaggle!! Okay, you’re going to have me Googling that. I thought I knew my big cats. Okay I have to Google NOW… OMG. I never knew!! And neither did Jim. Wow, the things we learn. Awesome!

    Adrenalynn!! For some reason I think Jim Morrison would’be worn those! Do you think? Kalyani is the only one IN THE WORLD making fuzzy pants. Airmail to Norway, no prob!

    LLCoolJoe No,the pants are not at all itchy! They’re very soft. Get you some! I think black would be just your thing!

    J.D.! Ah, thanks. It was a real trip. And it only took me 20 digital shots to get that on of them on the ride.

    Dot!1 Come to TX, I’ll take you out in the woods with all the wild ones. It was espefcially great for kids, yes. They enjoyed all 6 hours we were there.

    Paige!! Yes, and no mountains to climb there! It was really something. I’d like to go back out next weekend, this weekind wer’re going camping.

    Katie!! Yes, it is all about playing. Acting. Having fun. And I could see you there in an elegant robe, all brocade and gold trimmed. With an umbrella hat!! :)

    Ana. It was quite magical, like being on a humongous Hollywood set, but with no script or set place to be.
