Last weekend, as many of you know, I had house guests and we all attended the Country Living fair that is only about forty minutes from my house.
On day one of the fair last Friday it was cold! I had on layers to keep warm. Laura, in the middle, didn't have on half what I did, but said she wasn't cold. We spent most of the day in the shade and it warmed up some in the afternoon, but not much. Shirley, on the right, was one of my house guests. Laura lives about thirty minutes north of me and I was so glad she was able to attend this year. My sister, who also got to go this year, was taking the picture of us.
Here is an instagram shot I grabbed of all four of us. That is my sister Kelly next to me. This was her first time attending the fair, too. My other house guest was Kristen of the blog Sophia's Decor. She and her mom drove down from North Carolina and got in late in the afternoon so she spent most of the next day shopping the fair.
I didn't take my heavy camera with me on Friday or Saturday, but when I went back on Sunday, yes, that's right I went all three days, I took my camera and grabbed some shots. I went with my daughter, in the striped shirt and her friend. Also Leila is in the stroller.
For those of you who did not go on Sunday the crowds were gone and it was much warmer, too.
The food area had hardly anyone in it after being so crowded with long lines on Friday and Saturday.
I gave you a peek at some of my purchases the other day and this is where my vintage breadboard came from. I may have just happened to buy another one. They had excellent prices on these and they are the real deal not reproductions. The couple who ran this booth live in Germany and buy all over Europe and then sell over here. They told me to bring more friends back next year.
All this was part of their booth, too.
And these old baskets.
This gigantic dough bowl, too.
Let's move on to some other vendors. Cute chair and yes, I agree with the pillow.
There were lots of interesting signs for the booths.
The same vendor that I bought my cow chalkboard from at Scott's in Atlanta was selling at the fair, too.
Of course there was plenty of holiday decorations.
Leila had a good time especially when she was able to get out of the stroller.
Before we left the girls hit the food area and bought some kettle corn and Leila got a big bag of cotton candy. She was not very happy when her mom put it up when we got back to the car. There was a bit of a melt down.
After three days of go, go, going I was exhausted and my legs ached for two days.
It was all worth it though.
Well, today is Halloween and it is also my sister's birthday. Yesterday we had lunch together with my mom and did a little shopping. Something may have come home with me that I will share later plus where some other finds from the fair have landed in my house.
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
