The Country Living Fair and my To-Do List7:46:00 PM
I was one of the lucky Hometalk Bloggers
that got VIP tickets to the
Country Living Fair in Rhinebeck, NY
I met a lot of new friends and even a couple of old faces...
well not old... but a few bloggers feel like old friends.
We had a great opportunity to chat with Rachel Hardage Barrett the Editor-in-Chief of Country Living Magazine.
She was a doll and had a great southern accent.
This clothespin was great... not sure what I'd hang up with it...
but I stopped for a photo and kept walking.
The fair was very exciting and it was a beautiful day!
The inspiration for my to-do list was everywhere.
I was snapping pictures left and right.
My list was as long as my arm before
I was half way around the fair.
I wanted to go right home and make everything I saw!
This woman, and I'm sorry I didn't get her name,
made some adorable bird feeders using pie tins.
I was so inspired by her creations that I ran home and made one
the very next morning...
(Stay tuned for more about this project!)
This garden booth was gorgeous... I wanted everything in it.
I would even venture to say that someone out there
was inspired by Homeroad...
I made this exact tote with the metal handle a few weeks ago...
(stay tuned for that project too!)
This was a great idea... a DIY banner kit.
This beautiful ladder needed to come back with me for my shop.
The number on the side was so cool!
I loved this ladder too... and the hanging funnel
planters were great!
Note to self... keep an eye out for vintage funnels.
So the three day Country Living Fair was a hit!
It was buzzing with shoppers, vendors,
artisan demos and special events
all around the fair.
Oh and by the way...
These painted bottles are now on my to-do list too.
Thanks Hometalk for the invite and I hope to see you next year!
