I am so excited that the weekend is almost here! This weekend is the Country Living Fair and I can't wait to attend. Last year was a blast!
I have been busy busy getting ready for two house guests. It was cold and windy yesterday, but I had to get the yard cut since it was looking quite bad. I was wondering if I would be able to get it done in time since we have had rain a couple days this week and then the grass needed to dry, but all is done.
On the inside I have been cleaning and prepping the guest rooms.
As most of you know, if you have been following me for the last few years, I like to change up the bedding around here and it was time to switch things up for fall.
I like adding warmer colors and layers since the nights are much cooler these days. I purchased this quilt last year at the Pottery Barn outlet and used it on the master bedroom bed for a bit. I like that I can use some of the same bedding from room to room since all the beds are queen size.
The khaki colored shams were marked way down at Pottery Barn in Atlanta this summer when I attended the Haven Conference and we did a little shopping. Everything else I had.
I try to think of everything my guests will need while they are here. Good lighting is a must and I have an alarm clock and a dish to place smalls on. I will have water and possibly some chocolates.
Bed linens are clean, fresh towels are ready and bathrooms are clean.
Want to know who is staying with me? Most of you have probably guessed Shirley of Housepitality Designs and the other one is Kristen of Sophia's Decor. Kristen will be staying in the farmhouse style guest room that I shared here. Shirley normally stays in that room, but we are matching the rooms to the guests this week. Kristen grew up on a farm and loves farmhouse style while Shirley loves pretty gardens, you should see their yard, so she gets the green room.
So I hope they will have a "good night" like this pillow says.
Friday morning two other bloggers will arrive at my house, Laura of Top This Top That and my sister of The Essence of Home. This is their first time going and I am sure they will love it, too.
Oh, gosh, I gotta run I still have a bit more to do to get ready and Shirley arrives first later today.
Hope to see some of you at the fair!
