The Country Living Fair & A Beautiful Weekend


Happy Monday!

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)

CL Fair Meeting Cari Cusksey

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!

CL Fair Cash & Carry Booth Cari Cuclsey

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….
