Country Living Fair {Bound} and BACK!


It was our third year going....it is always full of the expected and the unexpected. It's full of tomatoe and mozzeralla brushetta, pumpkins, gourds, pulling out that credit card, sore feet, pumpkin spice cookies with a thick dab of cream cheese icing, a stop at Starbucks, talking to strangers, a little dreaming with a bit of imagination that this piece of furniture just may work!

This year, I seemed to be on a {pillow} mission. I bought THREE pillows...my favorite lady was there. Her pillows are full of fringe {then a little more!}...great fabrics!

{This is one my favorite painters...he sells on Etsy}

The Country Living Fair has the most wonderful assortment of pumpkins and gourds to buy. I love the ones with the {bumps}. Everyone says they looks like they have the measals but I love them!

Around lunch, my cell phone rang...it was my best friend (who lived about 2 hours away from this fair). She starts off with "Guess where I am?"...well, she was at the Country Living fair...she came down for it. We spent about 1/2 hour together....it was a nasty little "tease"!

Well, our adventure to the Country Living Fair was {perfect}. I wish for many more...not to buy more fringe pillows or bumpy gourds but to spend these special days with my mom! It was the perfect day....

P.S. From yesterday, this is what you do with the {signs}! It's amazing that at first, it made NO sense but how cute it became when hanging from a pumpkin!!!

So great that you have such a great connection with your mom. So nice to make time for your parents, its so important as some day we all will wish we could and won't be able too. People truely are the best investment we have, putting time in with your mom, will be the best memory, not the pillows. Of course, I'm sure your mom was excited to see you enjoy yourself and shop! Looks like fun, and makes me so excited for fall and spending time with family and friends.

I think it's wonderful you get to spend quality time with your mom. My mom and I almost never connect. :(

I would love to got to that. I LOVE Ohio!!! There is a base in Dayton and that is my dream to get stationed there...but I am from Columbus (grove city).

That little sign on the pumpkin...I want one. And of course that Ohio pillow stole the show.

Oh, Sandy Toes, I'm so jealous:) I've been wanting to go to that fair for the longest time. I keep asking to go for my birthday--since it's in September--but it just hasn't worked out yet. Maybe next year... It looks like you had a great time~and found some wonderful treasures!
