What is it about this season that makes me feel like a kid again? I was browsing Anthropologie and came across this amazing photo shoot of fabric kites and fell into love with their dreaminess!

And then I went and visited Magnolia Market in Texas, wishing I would magically run across Joanna Gaines, but luck was not on my side, but I did snap a pic of these adorable fabric kites from her store.
