May 2017 Country Sampler Magazine Feature

Hello, my blog friends!  It's been awhile, but I wanted to share some exciting news!

My home is featured in the new May issue of Country Sampler magazine!  Not only that, but my living room was chosen for the cover!

This is such an honor, and I am very grateful!

I'm also now posting on Instagram (better late than never, right?)  Hope you'll stop over and say 'hi'!

Have a blessed day!

Country Living Fair 2016

Hi, friends!  I can't believe how fast time goes by! Hope you've all been doing great!

 I haven't posted in a long while, but it's that time of year again when my friend Suzanne and I have our annual 'shopping extravaganza' so I wanted to share it with you!  We had a gorgeous weekend taking in lots of fun eye candy at various local shops, as well as the Country Living Fair in Columbus!

On our first day of shopping we visited the incredible shop, Georgie Emerson Vintage (owned by  sweet Polly).  Feast your eyes on some of her amazing displays!

The Country Living Fair is such an inspiration every year, and this year didn't disappoint!

Here are some of my favorite booths...

Well, this is just a tiny taste of the CL Fair (unfortunately my phone/camera died, or there would be lots more pics!)  Hope you enjoyed it!

Until next time (whenever that may be),  God Bless!
Have a wonderful day :)

Country Living Fair 2015

Hi, everyone!

I know, it's been awhile since I've posted!  Since I just got back from the Country Living Fair in Columbus, I figured it would be a perfect time to check in, and show you some eye candy!

In case you're new to my blog, or just to refresh your memory, every year I travel to Columbus (about 2 hours from my home) and spend 2 days with my lifelong (well, almost-43 years) friend Suzanne on what we call our 'Shopping Extravaganza'!

We hit tons of shops on the first day (and I'm talking morning to night shopping!) then I spend the night at her house, and the next day we spend all day at the Country Living Fair.

Here is the line at approximately 7:30 in the morning.  It wraps all the way around to where we were standing.  And we're all the die-hards, who bought 'early bird' passes!
As you can see, it was a gorgeous day!

Here we are, eager to get in and start shopping!!
(I'm the blonde, in case you don't know :)

This event is truly an inspiration, and a feast for the eyes! The creativity and beauty that these vendors from all over the country create is awe-inspiring!

So let's get to the good stuff!

One of our very favorite booths every year...

Another one of my favorite booths...SO gorgeous!!

This beauty was sold by the time I got to her...she was about 3 feet tall with perfect patina!

So sweet...

This vendor's display was just stunning!

I can never get enough of white pumpkins-love them!

This clock was amazing!

I adored this huge cubby!

And this old green one was super cool, too!

LOVE this huge chicken nester...wish I had a spot for it!

This cow head was HUGE, and so fun!!

I love these pretty rosemary plants gathered in a vintage basket!

Another jaw-dropping display!

Such vibrant, colorful pumpkins!

This little girl was so adorable standing on the back of this old pickup that I had to capture it! :)

Well, I could've taken a million more photos, but I was too busy drooling (and also buying a few goodies!)

I hope that you enjoyed this glimpse of the Country Living Fair...til next time, have a wonderful day!  :)
