The Country Living Fair & A Beautiful Weekend
This weekend was SO much fun!
Saturday I drove up to Rhinebeck, NY for the Country Living Fair,
the drive was beautiful, the weather too, the vendors exceptional
it was a thrill to meet & chat with some new friends.
Here are some highlights….
(these photos where all taken with my I-phone,
it got crowded fast so it was just easiest)
Country Living did an amazing job setting the stage for this fun event!
And the day wouldn’t feel “country” without a large cow:).
I got to meet Sarah Gray Miller, editor- in-chief for Country Living Magazine!
What a thrill & she was so incredibly nice to top it off!
I also got to meet up with some talented & cool bloggers,
Jane from Atticmag
Kelly from Eclectically Vintage
Denise from The Painted Home
Ann Andrew from Water Wine Travel
So sorry for the blurry picture but I had to throw this in:).
I also had the pleasure of meeting Cari from HGTV’s Cash & Cari,
a few of us bloggers got to walk around with her, she gave us some great tips for shopping for vintage deals.
She was a sweetheart!
I got so many questions about my bag:).
It is the Mia Camera Bag from the super kind & talented Jeanne Oliver Designs.
Isn’t is beautiful????
It is so well made & has so many little compartments for your camera,
it was perfect for the day!
This was Cari’s booth,
she had a beautiful vintage baker’s rack,
which I have been wanting for a while.
I left for an hour to “think” and it was SOLD, uhhh.
I guess it wasn’t meant to be.
My goal was to find a unique piece of furniture,
then gift it to myself for my 4oth (in July.)
Good plan, right???
I did find an authentic large market basket & zinc pot,
I went home happy….
Loved this metal cabinet:).
So that was my Saturday
this was my Sunday….
My family & I drove out to the North Fork of Long Island to see my in laws.
We stopped by my favorite local shops,
Northfork Found & Co.
White Flower Farmhouse.
And look what I found!!!
A baker’s rack at White Flower Farmhouse!!!
I just love the patina, don’t you???
Still waiting to see if it for sale:).
Here some more beautiful images from Lori’s shop……
And look at these seats from Northfork Found & Co.
THIS place is my favorite place on the planet.
This is the rarely seen hubby, John.
We will celebrate 10 years on Saturday, wahoo!!!
Great guy he is, I still get butterflies:)
It was a beautiful day on the bay with my family.

It looks like an amazing time! I loved looking at all your pics on Instagram!
So jealous! I’d love to visit Country Living’s Fair! Maybe someday they’ll host a New England one!
I’ve always wanted to visit a Country Living Fair – looks so cool, and your pictures give me a much better idea of what it’s all about.
It was so fun reading about your day and looking at the pictures! It looks like you had an amazing time. Happy Anniversary! We are 9 years at the end of the month. 🙂 It’s hard to believe how fast time goes, isn’t it? Hope you had a great day!
It does go by sooo fast! We had a great time, alone for 6 straight hours was awesome, missed boys though
